A celebration of love, at Pelagus House – Five years later.


So, when Donovan and I met, we were kids. I was 19 and he was 21. We basically built everything we have today, together. I mean jeez, at 19 I wasn’t even sure of my correct bra size, never mind knowing what I want to be when I grow up.

From being young, carefree and living on our parents paycheques, we certainly came a loooong way. Now we live together, buying our own groceries, paying rent, making our own food and doing our own washing. Well, let’s not lie, I do the washing. Side note: Life is so expensive. I don’t know how my parents cared for themselves and all their children. #Blessed – Let me take a moment for my parents… Amen!

Since moving in together, we surely have had our romantic days and nights where we can laugh and chat until the sun comes up, but we also have really really dark days where you wonder: Shall I throw him off a bridge or shall I just disappear for a while? Haha, 5 years is a long time, but it’s been the best five years of my life.

The celebration starts.



This Video sums up our entire weekend, from waking up to the smell of the ocean, having friendly faces serve you the yummiest brekkies, to hiking and exercising along the coast, taking a dip in the pool or Jacuzzi and going for dinner with spectacular views… It surely was a great weekend. The perfect 5 year celebration.


Pelagus House:


I have been to quite a few guest houses and hotels, and Pelagus House is one of the Guest houses with the friendliest staff, ever.  With insane sea views, the warmest and happiest faces greeting you every morning, yummy breakfasts, a swimming pool and Jacuzzi, and literally a 10 minute walk to fabulous Hermanus restaurants. It’s the perfect place for a getaway, and it’s the perfect place to celebrate any special day, whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary or even just a celebration of LIFE!
