Yzerfontein Boat House

“Weskus is die beskus”, as the saying goes. And if you’re fortunate enough to have spent time in one of the small towns along this windswept coast, you’ll understand its appeal. One such spot is Yzerfontein, a once-tiny fishing village with a cluster of weatherbeaten holiday homes and a reliable surf break. Over the years, Yzers (as it’s affectionately known) has grown in size, while still retaining its dorp-like charm. And its sunsets are the kind that creep into your soul.

On a stretch of road, just a few moments from the ocean is a quirky holiday home kitted out with everything you need for a comfortable coastal escape. Completed in July 2021, this Scandi-esque beach babe – once a somewhat ramshackle boat house – might be compact, but what it lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in design might.

Created by local architect Lawden Holmes (FWJK) and friend Rhett Williams-Jones, the insides are clad in stylish blonde wood, and filled with carefully chosen local pieces, gleaming SMEG appliances and beautiful terrazzo floors. Together, these details are a distinct showcase of sharp style and modern comfort – there’s even a toasty fireplace and a Kolkol wood-fired hot tub for lazy post-beach afternoons.
