What activities can you do at the Sandcastle Beach Villa?
We stared out at the calm surface of the ocean broken only in places by breaching whales, while closer to the shore a string of dolphins was slowly traversing across the horizon. In this setting, it’s hard to not feel like you’ve found freedom.
It’s a layout that encourages exploration and offers ample opportunity to retreat further into your own private space. Sandcastle lets its secrets unfold slowly.
The space is not only imbued with sculpted turrets, fireplace chimneys and organically shaped freeform recesses, but is also inundated with windows so that around every corner there is a view… out onto the beach, across the Indian Ocean, or into the nature reserve which makes it feel like it’s floating in a sea of green.
Sandcastle Luxury Villa impact highlights
Sandcastle Luxury Villa is deeply committed to backing the local Wesley community and safeguarding the natural splendor of the conservancy. A fundamental aspect of their operation revolves around uplifting the local community through job opportunities and skill development. All of their employees are from the Eastern Cape and the local Wesley community.
Moreover, Sandcastle Luxury Villa has actively engaged in wildlife conservation efforts by prohibiting vehicle access to the beach. This conservation measure has led to a remarkable 50% increase in Oyster Catcher breeding. Additionally, they are dedicated to safeguarding the habitat of Cape Clawless Otters, which can occasionally be spotted along the shores.
Furthermore, Sandcastle Luxury Villa has played a pivotal role in an ongoing bee and honey project led by the resident field guide, XXX Wewe. This project, supported by both Sandcastle Luxury Villa and the local municipality, involves the installation of 25 hives on Sandcastle's property. The unique flora on the estate contributes to the distinct flavor of the honey, which varies with the changing seasons of flowering plants on the grounds. Visitors to Sandcastle Luxury Villa will have the opportunity to savor this proudly hyper-endemic, raw honey during their stay at the villa.
Sandcastle Luxury Villa also has a veggie garden which provides guests with tasty fresh meals harvested directly from the property. The villa has also made an effort to collaborate with local artists, decorating the home with several artworks created by talented local artisans. This not only provides an opportunity for international guests to appreciate these artworks, but also offers local artists a platform for exposure in a more informal setting.
