The Sea Cottage is so named because it is just that - a cottage right on the
sea. The beach is a mere flight of steps away! The cottage is set in a big, lush
garden which is home to many birds and also a pair of small duikers.
Visitors can relax on the cottage's private wooden deck and look out for dolphins and whales, or walk down the flight of steps onto the private beach to dip one's toes into the sea, or to take a leisurely stroll along the beach. The cottage's surroundings are quiet and tranquil, and at night the sound of the waves breaking on the shore will lull you to sleep.
You will enjoy -
- private access to the beach
- beautiful sandy beaches in front of the cottage
- a blue flag beach within walking distance
- whale and dolphin spotting from the cottage
- fishing from the rocks
So if you enjoy an early morning stroll along the beach watching the sunrise
and dolphins, or surfing and fishing is your passion, or you just want to enjoy
a sundowner with your feet up, then take some time out and come to the splendour
of the The Sea Cottage to relax and become completely refreshed.
The Sea Cottage has two bedrooms and two bathrooms (main en suite). A larger than usual bath and separate double shower has earned it the nickname "The Honeymoon Cottage", but as it also has two sleeper couches in the lounge, it can easily cater for a truly memorable family holiday. The main bedroom has a queen size bed, the second bedroom has two single beds and the lounge has two sleeper couches.
The cottage is well fitted, including linen and bath towels. You need only bring your food and drinks. The beaches are all within walking distance, so you can pack the car keys away for the duration of your stay! Enjoy eating your meals outside on the deck or inside in the open plan kitchen.
The following facilities are provided to enhance your stay:
- gas braai / barbeque
- ceiling fans in all the rooms
- 'quick clean' (dishes/sweep/beds) Mondays to Fridays
- laundry service on request, Mondays to Fridays
- on-site management
- lock up garage
- good cottage security and nightwatch
