In October 2015 we managed to get a Groupon for the cool seaside getaway at the Breede River Resort. It was quite a while ago and yes, Groupon was still active in South Africa then. It’s a shame that they aren’t active here anymore because now there are fewer places to get good deals from! 🙁
This weekend away was in Witsand and we were in such a cosy little studio apartment. The weather was humid but it was quite cold during the evenings. When we arrived we were treated so warmly by our host. I forgot her name but she was lovely. We had a bit of a chuckle as the note on our bed said “Mr and Mrs”! At no point did we say we were married, haha!
We enjoyed the facilities and as you can see from the Instagram posts below, we enjoyed walking around the area a bit and I made pancakes on the stove. We brought out own food (pancake mix etc for breakfast, lunch things, snacks) but in the evening we went to the restaurant on the premises. They had really good pizza!
There are various water related activities that you can do at the resort, it is a fishing lodge as well. We however opted to stay in and watch series, movies, drink milo, as the evenings were chilly.
I would recommend this destination if you would like a quiet breakaway from your day-to-day life 🙂
I had a little fun on the balcony haha
