Indigo Blue is a classic West Coast beach house and provides the ideal base for a laid back holiday. Situated on one of Langebaan’s best and most private beaches, Sandbaai, the house has its toes in the sand and you literally walk from the front door out onto the beach. The shallow and protected lagoon waters are great for kids with the nearby rock pools providing hours of entertainment. Simply furnished with a west coast feel, it is fully equipped with everything that you might need for a seaside holiday.
The house sleeps 6-8 people in either 3 double bedrooms or 2 double bedrooms and one dorm room, with a 2 singles and 2 pull out mattresses. There are two bathrooms, both are newly renovated, one with a freestanding bath and lagoon view and the second with a walk in shower. Bedrooms are equipped with down duvets and pillows and pure cotton linen and all have lagoon views. Bath & Beach towels are provided.
There are two spacious living areas, one at the rear of the house, opening on to a wind protected courtyard with braai area and the other at the side, with a hot and cold outdoor shower and direct access to the beach. All living areas have beautiful lagoon views. The front living area has a TV and DSTV (connected in Peak season only). Some classic board and card games as well as some toys and beach paraphernalia are supplied.
The open plan kitchen is equipped with a 5 plate gas stove with electric oven, dishwasher, a fridge/freezer and a microwave/convection oven. Housekeeping supplies and equipment are provided. There is no washing machine (who wants to do laundry on holiday?) but there are numerous laundry services in town. Wooden floors in the bedrooms and cement screed throughout the rest of the house mean that beach sand is never a problem.
To complete your perfect beach holiday, we provide a Fluid Synergy sit on top kayak as well as a Fluid Buddy single kayak and single Vaya for the kids under 10, all complete with paddles and PFDs. Additional kayaks can be hired with prior notice. Optional extras include the hire of our semi rigid inflatable, Balega, with skipper. If you bring your own boat, you may use the ‘Baby Blue’ mooring in front of the house. There is also space on the beach to keep your Hobie. You can also book a guided sea kayaking trip with Gravity Sea Kayaking at a discounted rate – trips must be booked in advance and are subject to availability and minimum numbers.
And if you book for a weekend, we won’t chase you out early on Sunday – stay as long as you like (provided no one is moving in Sunday afternoon or Monday morning). You can even add a third night at a discounted rate if you just can’t face returning to real life (subject to availability).
Situated above Indigo Blue but also with direct beach access and sweeping lagoon views, Baby Blue is an open plan studio flat that sleeps two adults. A small sleeping loft is available for children aged 6-12 years. The kitchenette consists of a 4 plate gas cooker with extractor fan, electric oven and fridge. There are two single beds on wheels which can be moved easily if you need more space. A small sitting area completes the interior. A spacious bathroom has a walk in shower. As with Indigo Blue, the indoor-outdoor flow is exceptional – there is a wooden deck looking out over the lagoon and a wind protected rear covered stoep and braai area. There’s an outside hot and cold shower and great patch of lawn for chilling. A mini olive grove completes the picture!
A separate bunk room with its own loo and wash basin has recently been added – this is ideal for adults, older kids and teenagers. Baby Blue can be rented own its own or in conjunction with Indigo Blue.
Langebaan is a sleepy holiday town with one of the best locations in the country – on the shores of the Langebaan Lagoon and bordering the West Coast National Park. Rampant development and dodgy seaside architecture has resulted in Langebaan sprawling towards Saldanha Bay but luckily this is hardly noticed at our little piece of heaven – Indigo Blue is one of the town’s original beach houses and Sandbaai has hardly changed. We are at the far end of town, 20 minutes walk from the entrance to the National Park. The town has everything you will need – Spar, Pick ‘n Pay (even a Woolworths 25 minutes away), banks, ATMs, laundry services, shops etc. The town centre is a 20 minute walk on the beach away.
Various activities are available including kite boarding lessons, guided kayak trips on the Lagoon with Gravity Sea Kayaking, Deep Sea Fishing, Horse riding etc. Attractions in the area include the West Coast National Park, the West Coast Fossil Park and the !Kwa Ttu San Reserve.
