Port Nolloth Accommodation

Polka's Place, No 78

Polka's Place No. 78 situated on the beachfront, this beautiful home has an enormous covered, furnished patio, with a braai area, completely protected from the wind and with spectacular views of the ocean. The interior is tastefully furnished and each bed is covered with a lovely home-made quilt. The very spacious main bedroom with a king size bed, the dining room with a 10 seater table and comfortable Lounge with large couches, also all have beautiful views of the ocean framed by 2 very tall and old palm trees. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped. There is a separate laundry area with tumble dryer and washing machine and the bathroom is spacious and modern. In the evening, relax, or enjoy a braai or dinner on the patio. Watch the beautiful sunsets over Port Nolloth Bay and the return of the fishing trawlers and diamond dredgers after a long day at sea manoeuvring thru the port and starboard buoys in the channel heading back to the harbour. In the morning, watch the heavy-side dolphins, seals and occasional whale frolic in the waves from either the patio or from the lovely wooden boardwalk that stretches across rocks and rock pools from beach to beach. Our beachfront home is perfectly located within walking distance 200-300m (along the boardwalk) to restaurants and shops, but private and away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. Enjoy walks along the long white sandy beaches, or soak up the unique history of this quaint little town. Once named Aukwatowa by the Nama people, it later became known as Robbebaai due to the abundance of seals and finally it was renamed Port Nolloth by British settlers who identified the bay as a harbour from which they could ship copper ore mined inland. Just as the Ore shipments started declining, alluvial diamonds were discovered (1926). The main industry today is marine diamond dredging, crayfishing and tourism.
