Abalone Pool Villas – Decadence for all seasons

Abalone Pool Villa

South Africa, Paternoster; PATERNOSTER’S FIRST BUTLER SERVICE is now available at Abalone House’s two newly revamped Pool Villas, situated in the heart of the historic West Coast fishing village. Echoing the vibrant decadence of boutique Abalone House & Spa, the Pool Villas epitomize the finest self-catering accommodation in the village – with butler Xavier Ramsami in attendance to serve a full English or Continental breakfast in suite. Alternatively, breakfast at Reuben’s at Abalone House is offered. The butler service is also available for late afternoon drinks and canapés, as well as for dinner by prior arrangement – both at an additional surcharge.

The two Pool Villas are virtually identical and each sleeps two couples or a family of four. With two spacious and magnificently appointed bedrooms with king beds dressed in fine percale linen, and en suite, both bedrooms lead onto the patio and pool; one of the rooms also has a private balcony with 180 degree sea views all the way to the horizon. But wherever you are in the Pool Villas, the ocean is right outside – just beyond the twinkling rim-flow infinity pool, so uninterrupted sea views are everywhere.

The main living area is spacious and beautifully appointed with comfortable couches, while the floor is strewn with Persian carpets. Oversized, colourful Tretchikoff prints add pizzaz to walls. Touches of delft blue and a single red piece can be found in the living area and bedrooms. A coffee pod machine dots each room in the Villa and there is complimentary Wifi throughout.

For winter evenings, there’s a cosy indoor fireplace, along with a Smart TV and Netflix to enjoy – maybe accompanied by a sherry or two. Summertime, the large glass stack doors can be completely folded back to allow indoor-outdoor living around the pool and braai area. There’s also a convenient outdoor shower for washing off beach sand before jumping in the pool.

An enticing selection of restaurants are within walking distance of the Villas and serve simple to sensational cuisine, by day and night. However, the fully-equipped and stylish Villa kitchen also encourages easy meal preparation, and the dishwasher does the rest. Both villas are also serviced each morning to keep them pristine and turn downs are done in the evenings – or not, should you request this. There’s plenty of flexibility too around service, to ensure your stay is thoroughly relaxed, enjoyable and luxurious.

Both units have off-road parking, and Villa no 1 has a complimentary lock up garage – with an interleading door into the Villa. A night security guard and watch dog – for additional peace of mind – is also stationed outside the Villas. Before starting his shift, he’ll introduce himself to you, if you’re in.

Farewell Seaside Cottages, Hello Abalone Pool Villas

With winter on the doorstep of the West Coast, Paternoster is about to embrace another season of indoor indulgence.  Winter is also the season when the lifecycle ends of many flora that adorn our coast line – only to be reborn when Spring arrives.  South of Africa’s two Seaside Cottages will soon withdraw from the public eye only to be reincarnated into the opulant 5-star Abalone Pool Villas; scheduled for opening in late July 2017 just in time for the flower season!

The land the units were built on was purchased in 2004.  Building commenced in early 2007 and the two holiday units were opened to the public later that year to great applause.  The Seaside Cottages had been particularly popular with holiday makers who relished the spectacular sea views and infinity pools which had become its iconic trademark.  Apart from the 180 degree views of the Atlantic, guests also benefitted from its proximity to the beach and town center.  Travellers who venture to this cosy fishing village longed for more sophistication, and the units’ association with its nearby 5-star sibling, the Abalone House & Spa, brought forth the next step in its evolution.

The enticing new offering, inspired by the Abalone House brand’s success story, will see the closure of the Seaside Cottages on 31 May 2017.  When it reopens in Spring, departing is proverbial cocoon, the transformation into the Abalone Pool Villas will surprise and delight all future guests.  Guests will enjoy the Pool Villas’ association with Abalone House even more! The hotel, which opened a Reuben’s restaurant and Healing Earth Spa in 2013, has become a sought after destination in the Western Cape; setting the benchmark of what getaways on the West Coast must be.  The Abalone Pool Villas are set to take this decadence to the next step.

The two newly refurbished and well-appointed Abalone Pool Villas will be a unique interpretation of what Abalone House is famed for.  This includes the Tretchikoff prints which will, like Abalone House, also adorn the walls of the Abalone Pool Villas, adding to their mystique.  The additional charm of the units’ location on the hill offers a dreamy element of surprise:  the large glass doors which open up onto vistas of a deep blue, and often turquoise, ocean.

The Abalone Pool Villas are most importantly family-friendly.  This makes these units the perfect escape-to destination any time of the year for families with teenagers or groups of friends.  The Abalone Pool Villas will also include a unique breakfast delivered to the units daily from the Reuben’s Restaurant, enhancing the familiarity with Abalone-brand and making it the most desired West Coast experience.

Guests who wish to be pampered in the splendour of the Abalone Pool Villas need not wait long as bookings will open in late June / early July 2017 on the Abalone House website www.abalonehouse.co.za.  In the interim, a celebration sale to mark the end of the Seaside Cottages is now on.  Book your favourite Seaside Cottage online today at www.seasidecottage.co.za for the month of May at only R999 per unit per night.
