Description from owner

Description

"Bonavanti" has been called the best view in St Francis, the best view in the Eastern Cape and even best view in South Africa!!!

Bonavanti is perched above the famous surf spot Bruces, overlooking the bay of St Francis. The luxurious house was recently renovated and updated with beautiful finishes. The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and 3 outdoor showers.

The house encourages outdoor living as all living area doors slide open fully to catch the most beautiful view of the sea.

Outside there is a large patio with a covered dining area, built in braai (barbecue grill), and sun loungers. The patio leads to a refreshing solar heated infinity pool.

The ocean below is accessible through a private little path that leads down to the rocks. It is not only ideal for swimming and surfing, but also fishing, and lengthy strolls along the waters edge.

St. Francis is known for its quiet canals, huge lagoon and beautiful beach. It is a paradise for families and water-sports enthusiasts. It boasts white sandy beaches and ideal conditions for surfing or water-skiing in the river. Dolphins, otters, and whales can been seen in the bay from the house.

St Francis Bays offers a delightful escape from the pressures of daily life in a heaven of peace and tranquility. Once you experience this lifestyle, it becomes a precious memory to cherish forever.

“Stunning, stunning stunning, would saty again ...whenever possible.”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2014

This home was just that, a home. it had fine cutlery, crockery and furnitures and sea views to impress. would have stayed again this december 2013 had it been available . no need to look else where in St. Francis bay if you want privacy and great bay views.

“Breathtaking Views in complete luxury!”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2014

For over 20 years I have had the honour and privilege of being a friend as well as guest of Nigel and Lila Harvey. Bonavanti is truly the most beautiful place on earth. The elegance and energy create an almost intoxicating sense of comfort and wellbeing. I've stayed several times at Bonavanti and assure you, you will not be disappointed. Each room has such a wonderful relaxing luxurious feel to it. The breathtaking views are second to none, and the surroundings are truly heaven on earth. Bonavanti is a beach house personified luxury, one of my favourite places in the world. I offer my humble yet highest recommendation!
