The Fairhill Experience (self catering)

Treat yourself to a unique “fynbos” experience in the heart of the beautiful Cape Overberg. Fairhill is a private nature and game reserve with fantastic sea and mountain views. The self catering guest house is situated on some 200 hectares of pristine coastal property just outside Stanford, on the Stanford - Gansbaai road. The estate is part of the Walker Bay fynbos and Nature Conservatory and has direct access to the private and secluded 17km long Walker Bay beach.

Take a leisurely walk through the estate and savor the smell of indigenous herbs and fynbos flowers. Alternatively, arrange for a trip in our game-viewing Land Rover to track down the herd of Eland or enjoy the fantastic views on a meandering drive to the beach.
