Koensrust Sea Farm is a beautiful seaside getaway rich in wildlife and scenery along the south cape coast just 3,5 hours from Cape Town. It offers accommodation in 4 rustic self-catering options spread across the farm, each with its own unique surroundings and ambience. With 2 km of remote beach on one side, 1 km of river frontage along the Duiwenhoks river on the other side and 1000 ha of beautiful fynbos in between, Koensrust offers endless opportunities to create that wonderful undisturbed weekend away that you are looking for.

Your activities on the farm can include fishing, swimming in the sea or river, canoeing down the river or just walking through the beautiful fynbos, and off course you can bring your dogs.

All houses are self-catering and provide: bedding and linen, fully equipped Kitchen (including soap and dishcloths), electric lights and fridge/freezer, gas stove and oven, hot water for shower and sinks, grids and tongs for the braai, and gas heaters in winter. We also provide you with a certain amount of wood for braaing and you can purchase more from the staff.

The accommodation options are:

The Beach Shack which sits on the beach and sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms ( 2 queen and 4 single) - while we provide a portage service to transport your goods down to the shack and back up again, you and your guests must be fit and able to walk up and down the steep path on your own - we cannot transport people up and down the path.

The Cottage which is about 1200m from the beach surrounded by fynbos and sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms (2 queen and 4 single)

The Kapstyl which is about 1200m from the beach and surrounded by fynbos and sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms (1 queen and 4 single)

The Tented Camp at the river which is on the river bank and sleeps 8 in three tents ( 2 queen and 4 single). To drive down to the tented camp you will need a 4x4 with low range and sign an indemnity form.
Alternatively we can transport you things down to the tented camp but you and your guests will need to be fit enough to walk down and up a very steep 4x4 trail as we cannot transport people to and from the tented camp.
