M & M Harris
We are Mariaan & Malcolm Harris and we relocated to Still Bay in January 2020. Malcolm is a retired English teacher and Mariaan a full status Estate Agent, but hails from the hospitality industry where she managed accommodation, restaurant and function establishments.
We are both passionate about travel, people and places and have extensive experience in the booking of accommodation and renting out of accommodation via various booking sites.
Because we have travelled quite a bit, we are very au fait with what is required for the perfect holiday stay and we assure holiday makers that we will make sure they have everything they need for a perfect vacation.
MORE ABOUT STILL BAY & JONGENSFONTEIN
"At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun." Sandy Gingras
About 380 kilometres east of Cape Town (Western Cape) and 26 kilometres off the N2 highway you will come upon the town of Still Bay (Stilbaai) along the banks of the Goukou River. This charming village on the Garden Route was established in 1894 - mostly for holiday purposes, but in years to come it became a very popular retirement village and is still visited by thousands of holiday makers - local and foreign.
Still Bay offers the visitor the perfect seaside holiday. Shallow bay, clean sandy beaches (Lappiesbaai has Blue Flag status), an estuary and 15km long navigable Goukou River where every conceivable type of water sport can be enjoyed!
Whale season is from July to November and visitors can watch whales from the dedicated view point above the harbour or while enjoying a braai at the Point. Still Bay and Jongensfontein form part of the Cape Whale Route.
Various walks amongst indigenous Fynbos, a 9-hole golf course, squash courts, bowling greens and tennis courts will also keep the active active. And the well established business sector provides shopping, dining and service needs.
Jongensfontein is situated 10 kilometres west of Still Bay. A very popular holiday resort with spectacular unspoilt beaches - perfect for swimming, boating, fishing and other water sports. Jongensfontein amenities include a shop (for basic needs), a seaside restaurant, postal service and an ATM.
