If you want to break away from the rush of the city to relax in peace, privacy and tranquility, without traveling for more than an hour, you will be pleasantly surprised to find the little village called Yzerfontein off the R27 - a jewel on the West Coast.
We are proud to introduce and welcome you to Lewens-Essens B&B where you will find essence for your soul. Amongst other things, the unobstructed 180 degree views will reward you with the most stunning sunsets. We are situated on the beach front, no more than 20 meters from the rocks and the sea.
Yzerfontein is home to the nearly extinct Oyster Catcher, a beautiful black bird with red feet and beak. The seasonal whales and dolphins also surprise one often with their maneuvers and can be watched from the comfort of your room. The walking trail that passes in front of the house along the sea, will introduce you to fynbos and flowers, the fishing harbour and the different angling spots, like High Bank, Freddys Rock and Deurspring.
You can explore the coast line along white sandy beaches, take a boat trip to Dassen Island or explore the abundant sea life in the shallow pools. In the evenings the moonlight is just a little more breathtaking than in the cities, because we are fortunate not to have any street lights.
