To some, a getaway is running away from a store after a diamond heist, jumping into a car parked in by two trucks and taing ten minutes to smash your way out of the predicament only to be confronted by the cops who usher you off to the cooler. Getting away really shouldn’t be this difficult. It should be jumping in the car, sticking to the speed limit and avoiding accidents while being chased by no-one at all. Take a load off at Cherry View with two nights for four of luxurious self-catering decadence, for R999.
Located a stone’s throw from the pristine Pennington main beach, Cherry View has everything to ensure your holiday in their luxurious self-catering apartments is as relaxing and rejuvenating as possible. Equipped with big plasma screen TV’s, DSTV, air-conditioning, and extremely comfortable beds Cherry View is your home, away from home. However you won’t have to do heaps of dishes or clean floors because invisible fairies clean everything, when you’re not looking. A large pool, communal braai area and children’s play area are in the confines of the complex ensuring security and peace of mind.
Also known as the ‘Jewel of the South coast’, Pennington is a tranquil little town located 9km south of Scottburgh and 58km south of Durban, making it the ideal getaway. Everything is not too close, but not too far either, so you get the best of both worlds. If you’re in the mood for busying yourself, then take a drive down to the shopping centre, have a bite to eat, browse the shops and buy quirky little mementoes of your trip to Pennington. Otherwise if you prefer bonding with the natural surroundings then The Nkomba Nature Reserve is perfect. Bird-watchers, tree and nature lovers, trail walkers and runners switch off to the outside world and tune-in to Mother Nature. If you require nature with a touch of the outside world attached, then amble down to TC Robertson Nature Reserve, Crocworld, Horse riding, deep sea fishing, scuba diving and surfing, all less than ten minutes from Cherry View.
For the golfing enthusiasts among you, Pennington boasts Selborne Country Club and Umdoni Park Golf Club as their golfing havens. Both clubs are rated as the most popular golf courses in South Africa, so get your wood all shined up for your next round of clubbing, without the strobe lights and bouncers.
Holidaying at Cherry View in June and July means that you get to witness The Sardine Run which is the greatest shoal of moving fish on Earth; it’s a magnificent natural event that should not be missed. There’s a rumour that the fish choose this route because Cherry View is a cool holiday destination. It’s just a rumour but if a billion sardines flock there, the proof is in the pudding. If you’re not in the mood to watch a gazillion fish on their way to their spawning grounds, why not join in The Winter Solstice celebrations and sports events taking place on 21 June?
Apart from the luxurious apartments and wonderful amenities, Cherry View is the perfect sanctuary for a holiday because of its close proximity to mounds of fun and adventure.
Did you know? Neanderthal women used to take holidays but hitting their men over the heads and letting them sleep it off for a week.
