Your Private Country Getaway

Villa Panorama is a 5 acre estate on the east coast of East London, South Africa.  The property enjoys beautiful sea views all along its frontage.  Whilst we are firmly in the country, which brings all the benefits of country living, quiet, nature, birds and beauty we are only 15 minutes from the centre of town and 5 minutes from the airport -

​Villa Panorama combines beauty, space and quiet all in one package, the perfect place for getting away from it all.  And of course, we are pet friendly for those who love to travel with their fur babies.
The Good Life

With a genuine sense of hospitality and laid back style of living the inhabitants of East London will make you feel more than welcome. East London is at the northern end of a 300 kilometre stretch of coastline referred to as the "Sunshine Coast" which has St Francis Bay at the southern end.


The Sunshine Coast is renowned for its many kilometres of beautiful unpolluted and un-crowded beaches. Long before written history, the banks of the now Buffalo River and the seashore were inhabited by early man, the Nahoon footprints have been dated at been 200,000 years old, the oldest fossilized human footprints found in the world.

The Beaches

Buffalo City, as East London is charmingly known, not only lies on one of the most sublime coastlines of the world - think warm Indian Ocean waters and sub-tropical weather that allow visitors to enjoy the climate all year round - it also basks gloriously between the Nahoon River in the north and the Buffalo River to the south of the city, and the phrase ‘unspoilt beaches’ was termed with East London’s beaches in mind.

Cove Rock, whilst not renowned for its swimming, is nonetheless one of the country’s most remarkable sandstone formations that serves as a wonderful venue for breeding seabirds, a whale watching vantage point, a perfect fishing spot and a great place for observing nature and simply ‘being’ on the beach. Surfers and divers enjoy Cove Rock and it makes a great 45 minute beachfront walk from Nature's Rest.

Otherbeaches, besides the ones mentioned above, include Kidds beach and Leeches Bay, the beaches along the West Bank of the city like Shelly Beach and Fullers Bay - where the Waterworld complex offers swimming, sailing, water-skiing, boardsailing and boating also have much to offer.
