Dune Dreams – Cannon Rocks – Eastern Cape

Dune Dreams self-catering holiday home is located on top of a sand dune overlooking the pristine beach at Cannon Rocks.

This beautiful Cape Cod-style house has been designed and built to give visitors the best possible beach holiday.  The windows, balconies, deck and lounge offer magnificent views of the bright beach and deep, blue Indian Ocean.

The house is surrounded by indigenous bush and is one of the most beautiful houses in Cannon Rocks.

Dune Dreams is constructed of wood with a Vermont finish and offers modern, comfortable amenities combined with holiday home simplicity.  The house is connected directly to the beach with a walkway and stairs.

The kitchen and bathrooms are modern, the décor simple but perfect for the location and the rooms comfortably furnished.

Owners, Wessel and Salome Seyffert, say, “Experience an ocean where you can still find abundant marine life and a beach with rare seashells.  Bush buck and several endangered bird species are your neighbours.  Watch whales and dolphins from the comfort of your bed or while reclining in a rocking chair on the balcony. Smile while your kids play on the sand dunes in front of the wooden deck.”

It is not surprising that Dune Dreams is already reserved for the Easter and Christmas holidays for the next few years.

“Early bookings are made by our regular clients who visit Dune Dreams again and again. Stay at Dune Dreams and become one of our happy, regular clients too,” says Wessel.

The holiday home sleeps a maximum of 8 adults and 5 children.

“Come and experience the best rest and best views in South Africa,” says Salome.  

Accommodation at Dune Dreams

There are two luxurious en-suite double rooms with sliding doors leading onto a balcony that offers 180° sea views.  The bathrooms have his and her basins as well as a bath and shower.

A third bedroom has a single bed and a bunk bed.  This room is ideal for children and teenagers.  North facing, it has its own en-suite bathroom with a shower.

The fourth bedroom (bachelor flat) is located under the house and has its own entrance. It is fitted with a King-size bed and bunk bed.  Salome says that it is ideal for 4-5 teenagers or a family with small children.  It has its own bathroom with a shower. 

The outside room is essentially a self-contained flat let as it has its own kitchenette with bar fridge, kettle and microwave as well as its own TV with DSTV.

The living room has a sleeper couch and shares a bathroom with the third bedroom.

Bed linen and bathroom towels are provided and a hairdryer is available in each of the two double rooms.

Facilities at Dune Dreams

As Dune Dreams is a self-catering, luxury holiday house you can rest assured that it has all you need to ensure that your stay will be comfortable.

On the first level is a fully equipped, modern kitchen with luxurious finishes.  Expect granite countertops, gas stove with extractor fan, large fridge and multiple plug points.

Centred between the lounge and the kitchen is a high seated, granite-topped, breakfast table with six chairs.

Running to the rear of the house is a separate scullery with dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Adjacent the kitchen is an open plan living and dining room with sliding doors that open onto the large deck.  On hot summer days, open the doors and take in the sea breeze.  The deck has direct access to the beach by means of a walkway.

Don’t think that this is only a summer holiday house.  Surfers, sailboarders, windsurfers and fishermen know that winter offers some of the best sea conditions and, despite the cool weather, the view remains spectacular.  The bedrooms have wall mounted heaters for your added comfort.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
