Realising a huge gap in the market, and after extensive research, she built the first white Cape Cod style beach house set directly in the sand on the Yzerfontein beachfront, that was designed specifically for photographic shoot purposes, allowing time for wonderful family holidays in between the bookings.

Pearl Bay Beach Villa did so well, as the film, TV and stills photographic shoots poured in, that shortly thereafter she built the second one next door, White Sands, and several years later, the third one in the Beach House Collection, Thyme & Tide.

The Collection now boasts 16 bedrooms in total, and is run professionally with a House Manager living on site to assist the guests and shoot teams.

Denise has added her impeccable style and personal signature to each one of these amazing deluxe beach villas. They are now sought after venues for bespoke 5 star holiday accommodation, film and photoshoots, wellness retreats, corporate workshops and conferences. ‘Boardroom to the Beach’ is a very popular and trending concept, as what better place to bring out the creativity and cohesiveness of your team than in this inspiring setting.

She has hosted Ginger & Lime interactive cooking weekends which holds immense appeal to Foodies’ who wish to be immersed in fabulous fun cooking experiences with likeminded people who share the same passion for food and knowledge.
