Only 12 km from Hermanus in the Western Cape lies 250 hectares of thriving natural fynbos and accompanying wildlife, covering most of the western flank of Onrus Mountain. Welcome to Jackals Dans, with expansive ocean, mountain and lagoon views including panoramic views across the entire Walker Bay. Being part of nature has never been easier, surrounded by beautiful pristine fynbos and prolific protea flowers whether walking in the Onrus Mountains or living in the Cape Dutch-style home.

Rare permission has been granted by the Dept of Environmental Affairs for the construction of five additional dwellings on this private nature reserve, making it an ideal investment for a consortium or a highly exclusive gated community.

From various vantage points of this 250HA private retreat, there are expansive views of the ocean, Benguela Cove, Bot River Lagoon, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, Betty’s Bay, Kleinmond and Arabella Estate. From the top of Onrus Mountain, via easy private road access, viewpoints offer unsurpassed vistas over Hermanus, across Hangklip, ultimately to Cape Point. Enjoy magnificent sunsets year-round over mountains and ocean.

The owner’s home has always been an informal hub for family and friends over holidays and getaways; comfortable, relaxing, welcoming and fun. It includes an open plan lounge with built-in fireplace, dining room and kitchen with the lounge opening out onto a covered patio with a built-in braai. Sleeping accommodation includes three bedrooms, with two bathrooms en-suite and spacious sunroom, the latter also opening to the patio via sliding glass doors. The outbuildings consist of two quadruple tandem garages (one fully enclosed and locked with steel sliding door), laundry (with oversize washer/dryer), shower / toilet and storage rooms.

The property has abundant water supply all year-round fed by multiple springs within the Onrus Mountain catchment area and pumped into a large cement holding dam for water delivery to the dwellings. Three-phase electrical power is supplied direct from Eskom. The security system with armed response includes camera surveillance, exterior beams surrounding the house and interior sensors in all the rooms. The home has unlimited high-speed wi-fi and cameras can be remotely accessed via computer or phone app.

This enchanting property includes an income-producing off-grid converted luxury container home sleeping four that is currently rented as exclusive holiday accommodation (see photos). Guests enjoy unlimited high-speed wi-fi, wood-fired hot tub, gas cooking and stunning 360-degree views over the ocean, lagoon, mountains and valleys. Security includes beams, camera and armed response. Further monthly passive rental income comes from four communication towers on top of Onrus Mountain from which an income can be derived from.
