Overview

Dune Ridge is an award-winning Country House nestled between thick coastal fynbos teeming with a multitude of bird species. Set on the outskirts of the quaint upmarket village of St Francis Bay and Cape St Francis in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, the house was built in early 2000 utilising local as well as recycled materials. Accommodation is available in six double rooms as well as a family cottage. The guesthouse boasts a tranquil environment with large secure gardens and a private swimming pool area. Activities include Dune and Coastal Forest Walks, evening Frog Safaris, an in-house treatment facility as well as Bush Spa. Dune Ridge is extremely conservation conscious, ensuring that the footprint of the guesthouse is at an absolute minimum. Fair Trade principles are applied as much as possible, and all produce utilised in the guesthouse kitchens either comes from our own gardens or sourced locally.
