In this amazing place in South Africa, where top luxury and adventure goes hand in hand, one of the most memorable things was their enormous hospitality. They gave us a warm welcome feeling by gifting us a handwritten note on arrival and also handwritten spiritual wishes the next morning in your room. A good thought to start the day with makes your staying even better spent.
“The time to make friends is before you need them.”
I still have the note, how simple but true. I simply loved it.
Okay, now a little gossip! Matt Damon stayed here when he was filming one of his movies, I can’t blame him for his great choice picking this hotel!
Let me tell you a little more about this small intimate luxury hotel surrounded by shimmering sea, pristine beaches and towering mountains which is located on the edge of Walker Bay. Adding to the fact this is the perfect place to watch whales and dolphins passing by, it’s also a wonderful place to stay. And whether you’re in the mood for a wine tasting or for a thrilling encounter with Great White Sharks, there is something for everyone at Birkenhead House.
“The hotel’s contemporary décor is an artful mix of a beach-house and quirky opulence. It has classic luxury and gives you a laid back feeling.”
The 11 suites at Birkenhead House are individually decorated by the stylish hand of owner Liz Biden, every room is uniquely decorated. Located on top of the cliff, overlooking the whale watching paradise of Walker Bay, Birkenhead House provides luxury accommodation for those who are looking for an extraordinary coastal experience.
