Ola Kala: A Stunning Seashore Villa in Plettenberg Bay

Beachy Head 104

Settle in style on the gorgeous Garden Route.

The Robberg Peninsula is the green jewel in Plett’s crown, a sanctuary of protected nature lined by stunning shoreline. Front and centre in this scenery is a holiday home of your dreams, with its own private boardwalk leading to the beach. Reminiscent of a villa in the South of France or Ibiza, with its wooden shutters, terracotta roof and hidden courtyard garden, it’s a place that sets the easy-breezy mood the minute you arrive.

Coastal cool

Beachy Head 104 Pool Deck

The interiors evoke sun, sand, sea and nature, with beachcomber-chic details and natural materials. Woven chairs, light fittings and decorative objects add textural interest; wood, rattan and indoor plants evoke a beach-club feel. The colour palette also beautifully echoes the myriad shades of the ocean – blues, greens and coral-reef pops of colour in striking artworks. 

Designer delight

Beachy Head 104 lounge

The villa offers a generosity of spaces in which to relax, gather, dine and play – indoors and alfresco – but also plenty of spots for some private time (the dreamy swing chairs will be much sought-after). All the living spaces downstairs flow onto a deck with sea views, and to the verandah surrounding the courtyard garden, where a sparkling pool beckons and there’s a chill room for teens. Bedrooms open onto balconies with mesmerising sea views. It’s a place to seize the day and make the most of this extraordinary location.
