Believe it or not, but we’ve been through almost 6 months of lockdown, with the majority of us being cooped up indoors, having to work from home and basically not being able to leave the house. So let’s be honest, we need to take a break and value the time we have. An Airbnb getaway is a fantastic way to get out of the house and set ourselves free from our daily grind and experience life a little differently.
With Airbnb you are able to enjoy a local experience when travelling, as they provide authentic stays that you may not find elsewhere. Whether you are travelling in a group, of family or friends, or with your partner, an Airbnb is bound to be your home away from home.
This past week we reached out to our followers and customers to find out which Airbnb gems are the perfect spots for a getaway and we thought we’d share them with you. These gems are perfectly unique and will entice you to take a break from the hustle and bustle of your daily life.
Nestled up against the Witzenburg mountain range, The Dome is surrounded by water and trees and is completely private – as it submerges into nature without a building in sight. Unlike the traditional B&B, The Dome, offers an experiential stay, with activities such as swimming, fishing, mountain biking, hiking and the enjoyment of nature. And not forgetting to mention, the hot shower and bathtub overlooking the dam with the best sunsets in the valley. This stay is perfect for those looking for a private getaway outdoors.
The Cape Cottage is a perfect getaway for a short or long stay, where you are able to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city but be close enough to enjoy the sights. A beautiful modern cottage on a quiet inlet of Marina da Gama, you are able to enjoy beautiful sunsets from the sunroom or deck overlooking the water. Wake up to nature’s calls of birdlife, while kayaks and a paddleboat provide a peaceful way to explore the waterways, and a covered braai and pellet stove ensure that you stay cosy on cooler nights.
