A weekend at the Beachhouse in Kleinmond

Monday, 06 March 2006
For the Toastmaster’s year – 2004 – 2005 – I was lucky enough to win the participation prize of a weekend away at the Beachhouse in Kleinmond thanks to Relais Hotels (who sponsor this prize).

For those who have never been, I can highly recommend it. The Beachhouse is situated just across the road from the main beach in Kleinmond. The rooms are large, comfortable and homely and although there may be a little bit of paint peeling off the ceiling, you get the feeling that you are really in your own Beachhouse and for us, it just added to the appeal.

Breakfasts were fantastic and served overlooking the ocean. By special arrangement, the chef organized a couple of whales to frolic just past the breakers, and this made the bacon and eggs taste even better.

Feeling energetic, Sandra and I took a walk along the beach and were lucky enough to see the wild horses of the area. According to the locals, this is apparently a very lucky occurrence.

Once again, to all those involved, the E&Y Club and Relais Hotels. Thanks so much for the opportunity of winning this prize.

Kind regards

Lloyd Dicks
