Anchorage River House – Stilbaai

Great self-catering weekend or holiday accommodation, comfortable and stylish. Since Anchorage River House is situated on the eastern bank of the Goukou River, the place is also delightfully tranquil. Still Bay is a popular coastal town in the Hessequa region in the Western Cape Garden Route in South Africa.

Be on the lookout for a brown road sign indicating the inconspicuous turn-off towards Anchorage about 1 km from the Stilbaai bridge. Follow the narrow dirt road with its inconvenient, but highly effective, speed bumps as far as it goes. There you will find your treasured destination – Anchorage River House with its vineyard, along with its olive and fruit trees and friendly and well cared for dogs.

Since the Goukou River is navigable for some 17 km guests can swim, fish and row, as well as ski at Anchorage. In fact, the stretch of river in front of the River House is a ski area. This is also a perfect place to do some birdwatching what with the abundance of bird species around.

This self catering accommodation is situated close to beautiful sandy beaches, scenic nature reserves as well as golfing facilities. Still Bay is also a popular playground for surfers and kite surfers alike. Ergo, the perfect place to unwind and relax.

Anchorage River House Selfsorg Akkommodasie in Stilbaai

Wonderlike naweek- of vakansieverblyf op die oostelike wal van die Goukou-rivier. Kyk uit vir die bruin padteken wat die nouliks merkbare uitdraaipaadjie na Anchorage aandui so ± 1 km voor die Stilbaaibrug. Volg die nou grondpaadjie met sy ongemaklike spoedwalletjies so ver as wat dit gaan. Daar sal jy die pragplek vind met sy wingerd, olyfbome, vrugtebome en vriendelike goedversorgde honde.

Aangesien die Goukou-rivier begaanbaar is vir sowat 17 km, kan gaste swem, visvang, roei en so ook ski sommer daar by Anchorage. Net so terloops, die deel van die rivier voor die River House is ‘n skisone. Met al die baie voëlspesies in die gebied, is Anchorage ook ‘n perfekte plek om voëls te kyk.

Hierdie selfsorg-akkommodsie is geleë naby lieflike sandstrande, pragtige natuurreservate en so ook gholfbane. Stilbaai is ook ‘n baie gewilde speelplek vir branderryers en vlieërseilers. Met ander woorde, die perfekte plek om te ontspan en af te wen.
