Take an early morning stroll to the beach, armed with a steaming cup of coffee or tea to watch the ocean come alive with the most spectacular sunrises. More often than not the dolphins will delight you with their playful antics and the whales are a regular spectacular sight at Anstey’s Beach.

Relax by the poolside in our tropical garden, or go for a late afternoon swim in the sea or walk on the beach.

Ansteys is unique in that we encourage and enjoy a great cosmopolitan atmosphere – international travelling backpackers, South African holidaymakers, business people, contract workers – all get along and it makes for a good, happy mix!

We look forward to welcoming you! – Tash, Rudy and the Anstey’s crew

  •   Overall we had a fantastic time, the unit was beautiful and the view amazing. The welcoming and staff service was professional and friendly. Only thing we can suggest is to think about adding more braai facilities. Our time clashed with another couple and they ended up not being able to braai all though we did tell them to join us. Maybe they do not mix well 🙂 We will most definitely book there again
