Only one hour’s drive from Cape Town, Scrimshaw is set above the soft white sandy beaches of the pristine warm lagoon which offers super safe swimming for kids. This is off-the-grid living, so there is no WiFi, limited cellphone accessibility and solar power rules supreme. Scrimshaw has a gas hob and oven and a large wood-burning stove to keep things cosy during the cooler months.
Look forward to splendid solitude, watch the tide ebb and flow and swim, paddle or canoe in the warm lagoon. Ride bicycles or walk and explore the untouched nature in this West Coast reserve and remember to look up at the night sky as with zero light pollution the stars here are spectacular.
Time passes slowly here, and once you’ve arrived you won’t want to leave!
