A world apart…
Just 10km east of Somerset West

Surrounded by lush, gently sloping foothills hills, Casa Maris Luxury Eco Estate graces the natural amphitheatre that opens towards the west with panoramic views over the False Bay coast towards Cape Point and inland towards the Cape Peninsula Mountain spine.

Between Somerset West and Grabouw, Sir Lowry’s Pass crosses the Hottentots-Holland Mountain range on a stretch of the N2 known as the Garden Route.

At the foot of Sir Lowry’s pass, luxury lake-side and larger hill-side villas are integrated into the environment to enhance the area’s natural, untouched beauty and form the timeless aesthetic of Casa Maris.

Streams run down the mountain slopes forming small dams and an abundant natural water source that forms part of the estate, adding to the area’s picturesque qualities while bringing pure, mountain-fresh spring water straight to the Eco-Estate.

Casa Maris is steeped in history, bearing the scars of the first Settlers crossing the land in 1664 to seeing 4500 ox-wagons moving into the South African interior by the 1800s. Today, sightseers drive up the beautiful Sir Lowry’s Pass simply to stop at the 420 metre summit lookout point and enjoy awe-inspiring views.
