Interaction with guests
I like to meet my guests and they can then follow me up to Spirit of The Ocean. I can then hand over the keys and introduce them to the house at the same time. I live 20 minutes away in George so am available if needed. There is also a big fat file at the house full of information, places to eat and things to do in the area.

Five days of total relaxation, taking in THAT amazing view of the bay (with dolphins daily at 6pm): what a wonderful experience. Christina was the most helpful host you could have, helpful, observant and gentle. The property is through a nature reserve and the fainthearted...More

About the neighbourhood
AS well as beautiful walks in the nature reserve itself, there is so much to do and explore. Action sports such as paraglyding, abseiling, bungie jumping and diving.
Golf, sailing, hiking, deep sea fishing, bowling and horseriding.
Many beautiful beaches with an organised moonlight beach walk if desired.
Tourist attractions include Knysna Elephant Park, The bird park and monkeyland just past Plettenburg Bay and Puzzle Park for the young at heart.
Many art galleries and local crafts, fine food and restaurants and weekly farmers markets in George and Sedgefield.
George has a Cinema with 4 screens and all the normal facilities found in a large town.
cango Caves in Oudtdshoorn a must and how about riding an ostrich?
Getting around
While Spirit of The Ocean is in a private nature reserve and beautifully peaceful it is literally 10/15 mins away from the N2, Garden Route shopping mall, 15/20 mins from both George and Wilderness, 30 mins from Sedgefield and Mossell Bay with many beautiful beaches and golf courses in between. George itself now has a wonderful bus service but ones own transport is essential when getting around the Garden route in general.

How to get there
Airport: George Airport: 20.0 km
Ferry: Knysna: 60.0 km
Locality Map for Ballot's Heights and Ballots Bay (Ballotsbaai)

Directions: From Cape Town, take the N2 and pass the George Mall on your left, merge with Knysna Road from George (still the N2), and pass the sign to “Victoria Heights”.
The next turn to the right is signposted “Victoriabaai”; turn right, and drive 200 m. Then turn right into Carmel Christian Camp (you will see that the gatepost also says “Ballots Bay” in blue).
(One of us will meet you at this point if you are renting for the first time and you can then follow us)
Follow the road (slowly – 20 km/hr – many speedbumps) through Carmel, then fork right.
After 1 km you will cross the railway track, and then two bridges.
Change into first gear across the second bridge, as the road is very steep for 1 km, until the gate.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Nearest Beach: 5.0 km.
