The COVID-19 pandemic has forced all of us to re-examine our lives in the most minute of details and redesign them to be compatible with our new reality. During the quarantine, dk villas also had to take a good long, hard look at our business and determine a way forward. In a world where travel and tourism has ground to a halt, how we can continue to offer luxury, high-end accommodations in some of the Cape’s most beautiful destinations?
The answer is to open our accommodations up to longer-term rentals. While COVID-19 may have most of us in lockdown, life continues and people – couples, families, working professionals, and retirees - still need a place to call home. And so we’ve reshaped our offering to include longer-term rentals of our three properties at great prices.
If you’re looking for a beautiful, fully furnished, tech savvy home to walk into and stay for several months or even the better part of a year, dk villas’ three luxury apartments are available to you.

Two bedrooms | two bathrooms | sleeps four people
R8,500 per month, incl. water, Wi-Fi, weekly service, fully furnished, secure parking spot
Dwarskersbos and its beach, Dolfynstrand, is a place to “get away from it all” - away from the city and the insanity. It’s a serene escape in which one can do a little reconnection with oneself, a loved one, and nature. And as a visitor to this far-flung portion of the Cape, there couldn’t be a better home-away-from-home to do it all in than dk villa’s beach cottage at Skilliepark.
dk villa’s two-bedroom beach cottage is perfectly positioned near the beach to allow guests front-row seats to the sunset. And with a sheltered indoor braai area with eight-seater table and wrap-around windows, the show can be enjoyed irrespective of the season.
Inside, the cottage is decidedly chic and beach-themed with full attention paid to every detail concerning function, comfort, space usage, and aesthetics. There is an open plan double volume living room and fully kitted-out kitchen that includes high-end appliances, a coffee and tea-making station, as well as heaps of storage space.
dk villas’ beach cottage has two bedrooms, both with queen-size beds and one with an open plan en-suite bathroom with a bath.
The apartment is flush with everything one could possibly want and need to enjoy a luxurious stay in the fairly remote coastal village of Dwarskersbos. This includes free Wi-Fi, an enormous flat screen TV, and Egyptian cotton towels and sheets. There are even reference books for birding and nature enthusiasts to peruse.
