About Kraalbaai House Boats

The Kraalbaai Luxury House Boats are located in the West Coast National Park on the shore of the turquoise Langebaan Lagoon, just an hour from Cape Town in the Western Cape. There are four Kraalbaai Luxury Houseboats in total – The Larus, Eve, The Eden, and The Nirvana Houseboat – each offering guests a unique experience of living on the water with stunning lagoon views and all nature has to offer right on your doorstep. Spacious, yet cosy and intimate, the houseboats are ideal for couples, groups of friends or colleagues as well as families.

One of the drawcards of staying in one of the Kraalbaai Luxury Houseboats is that guests can take part in fun water activities right in front of their accommodation. Guests are given the space to further explore the area by taking nature and beach walks, or going on a sunset cruise, with complimentary transfers to and from the houseboats during their stay at Kraalbaai. The houseboats are fully equipped with large kitchens and braai utilities for self-catering. Guests can also be catered for on request.

Kraalbaai House Boats Setting

The West Coast region of the Western Cape in South Africa is renowned for its awe-inspiring natural vistas and abundant fishing waters. But the allure doesn’t end there – as perhaps the primary reason so many people choose to visit this area, particularly during Spring, is because of the magnificent carpets of blooming wildflowers and crystal-clear waters reminiscent of the Mediterranean.

From the Langebaan Lagoon providing a Greece-like backdrop to kayaking, swimming, and paddle boarding, to the protected Postberg region’s veld flower display in spring, the West Coast is a winning destination for lovers of nature. There’s a lot that guests can do when visiting Kraalbaai as it is in the West Coast National Park -the untouched nature reserve with a variety of activities such as birding, marine activities, game sightings and biking. Guests can also have a picnic with a view in the park with their loved ones.

*Children are allowed, but do count as adults towards the maximum capacity allowed, regardless of age, and remain the responsibility of the parents and/guardians at all times.
