The Flamingo Suite is a stylish self-catering apartment available as holiday accommodation in the gracious gated Garden Route Resort called Lake Pleasant Living situated on the banks of the Groenvlei Lake, on the eastern outskirts of Sedgefield.
The property backs onto the beautiful Goukamma Nature Reserve and Marine Protected Area – a registered natural heritage site with a variety of magnificent walking trails ranging from 4.2 km to 15 km through indigenous coastal forest, cape fynbos and on a long stretch of pristine beach. In season, from May to December, good sightings of Southern Right and Humpback Whales can be seen from the dunes in the Reserve and from Platbank - a comfortable walk from the complex to the beach. Dolphins are seen frequently along this coastline.
N.B. Do not be tempted to swim in the sea unless you are familiar with the area. There are very dangerous currents and rip tides along this coastline.
In the peaceful surroundings of tall palms, shady indigenous trees, manicured lawns, natural ponds and two swimming-pools one can instantly shake off the burdens of busy life and relax into a haven of tranquility. Bird life is plentiful, over 220 species in the surrounds, so birdsong will be your daily companion.
The spacious, tastefully appointed apartment has an open-plan living area that leads out on to a covered patio with outdoor seating. The indoor open-plan living section consists of a dining table and chairs, a mini-bar, comfortable lounge suite, DSTV (bouquet)and a writing desk.
It includes a well-equipped kitchenette that contains a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave oven, hob, sink and all the necessary cookware, crockery and cutlery needed.
The adjacent master suite is luxurious. It has an extra-large king-size bed, side tables, cupboards and reading couch, DSTV (Bouquet) and full en-suite bathroom. This room also opens on to the covered patio with loungers.
Lake Pleasant Living has extensive gardens with a tropical atmosphere that are a nature-lover’s delight. You are free to explore them at your leisure. There are many wonderful photo opportunities for keen photographers including amazing sunrises over the lake, sunsets over the sea and the constant bird life in the garden, along the dirt road and on the lake.
A carport with a useful storage shed e.g. for bikes, comes with the accommodation.
