Cape West Coast Magic

Until recently a relatively undiscovered tourist destination, the Cape’s West Coast is one of South Africa’s hidden gems: a safe, tranquil region where the simple life is still the norm. Experience the unique charm of this area as you unwind and recharge at Calypso Villas, a new concept in luxury guest-house accommodation at Langebaan on the West Coast. Here we combine adventurous exploring with luxurious comfort, a close-to-nature feeling with modern convenience.

Our villas are surrounded by beauty: the splendour of Saldanha Bay and the scenic Langebaan lagoon. Built on the dunes overlooking an unspoiled beach where the Atlantic Ocean gently laps at the shore, we are but a stone’s throw from the water’s edge. All suites feature generous balconies, affording a 180 degree sea-view. Our guests enjoy the privacy and safety of a private estate with supervised entrance.

Whales, dolphins and seals are regular visitors to these protected waters and can often be spotted from your bedroom window. And don’t forget that in spring the surrounding landscape turns into a tapestry of colour when a multitude of wild flowers make their annual appearance.

Within walking distance of the Club Mykonos recreation and entertainment facilities, Calypso Villas can be a haven of heavenly leisure or a hive of healthy activity, depending on your preference. We have a small fleet of vessels waiting to take you on a magical cruise, whether you prefer the swift elegance of a yacht, the excitement of a speedboat or the adrenalin rush of an inflatable.

Perhaps you may want to visit the islands, where thousands of gannets, gulls and cormorants collect in a delightful cacophony of squawks and squabbles. You may prefer a trip to the Postberg Nature Reserve with its abundance of spring flowers, or sail across to Saldanha Bay to enjoy a seafood lunch at a waterfront restaurant.

Not many people are aware of the wealth of cultural, historical, botanical, ornithological and marine diversity this unique area offers. Our trained tour-guides will accompany you on tailor made excursions to discover the Cape’s West Coast for yourself: perhaps a tour through picturesque fishing villages with opportunity for meeting the locals, or visiting places of historical or even pre-historical interest. And how about tasting our finest wines touring the West Coast wine route before taking a closer look at the fascinating shipwrecks along the coast? Then again, you may choose to spend the day bird-watching in the lagoon wetlands, teeming with migratory birds from as far as Siberia.

Discover the culinary delights of the region at informal eating-places situated right on the beach. If you prefer your entertainment indoors, there’s always the conference centre, casino, beauty salon and professional massage treatments at Club Mykonos just next door. Our private car rental service is available to take you wherever you want to go and we have a complimentary shuttle service to and from the Cape Town International Airport.

Whatever your preference, you will find something that you like at Calypso Villas. And you will want to return for more.

Our villas are situated only metres from the water's edge and within walking distance from the Club Mykonos conference facilities, restaurants, casino, yacht harbour and beach pub. Supervised admission to the Calypso Beach estate ensures privacy and security for our guests.
