Beach house dreams

There is something very special about the luxurious white holiday home that sits perfectly positioned on the Zinkwazi beach lagoon. The White House, as it’s known, is what beachhouse dreams are made of . . .

Lavish without being pretentious and reminiscent of a magnificent beach villa somewhere in Europe, this six-bedroom holiday home boasts incredible views over the Zinkwazi lagoon and the main beach of this quaint North Coast village.

Sleeping up to 24 people, if offers private boat mooring and direct access to the main beach, as well as all of the modern conveniences one would expect from a home of this calibre. Here are our top five reasons to book a holiday at this beautiful ocean-side abode . . .

5 reasons we adore The White House

1. The superb location
The view, as you make your way through the elegant plantation shutter front doors, through the length of the house towards the deck, is nothing short of gasp-worthy. Situated on the lagoon in front of the main beach, you simply couldn’t ask for a better location for a beachside holiday. One can imagine spending hours in the warm summer sunshine, sprawled out on sunbeds alongside the swimming pool (set into the deck), watching as the kids frolic in the lagoon or swim across to the main beach. A glass of bubbly in hand wouldn’t hurt either.

2. The mod-cons
Think automated, remote controlled rolling doors (and blinds), which open the home up completely to the exquisite 180-degree sea views, air-conditioning in all the rooms, WiFi, smart TV, two dishwashers and security alarm with both external and internal beams. This home has all the modern conveniences you need to ensure your coastal getaway is comfortable and entirely relaxing. The home also comes fully serviced with a lovely permanent live-in maid named Gloria who is friendly and quick to offer help wherever needed.

3. The style
With a contemporary coastal look and feel, the beautiful white and natural wood décor is perfectly complemented by the blue, grey and white subtly-nautical-inspired furniture. The massive solid wood dining table and captivating, oversized wooden chandeliers add a wow factor to this otherwise clean, simplistic interior.

4. The space
Two of the six bedrooms feature eight bunkbeds each, two have queen beds and the last two feature king-sized beds and views over the sea and lagoon with stacking doors that open out onto the deck. All the rooms have en-suite bathrooms and built-in wardrobes. This is the ideal location to spend family holidays with enough space for grannies and grandads and all the cousins.

5. The little things
A lovely welcome gift waiting for you on arrival and a goodie bag packed with local magazines and pamphlets offering information about things to do in Zinkwazi and surrounding areas. A kitchen stocked with all the top-class appliances, crockery and accessories you need. Two ice machines. Staff who come in quietly and position the outdoor furniture and ensure everything is neat and tidy at the start of each day. It’s the small things, often, that really make a holiday memorable and, in this department, The White House comes out tops.
