About Cottage on the Hill

Nestled in the indigenous Eastern Cape fynbos, high on the ridge of St Francis, overlooking the bay and surrounding Kouga Mountains, is Cottage on the Hill. This charming 5 star Guest House will enchant you.

A feeling of peace and tranquillity invade your soul as you laze at the pool or sunbathe on your private deck with lovely sea views. Sip sundowners as you enjoy the last rays of sunlight over the bay. The warning cry of the Francolin can be heard in the surrounding fynbos. An inquisitive mongoose or shy Cape Robin may surprise you, while you take a refreshing outdoor shower or bath in the enclosed boma. The resident pair of giant eagle owls can be heard on the thatch roof late at night and their soothing sound will lull you into contented sleep.


The property consists of the main house with the Bay Breakfast Room and Yellow wood pub; the Guinea-fowl Cottage is separate and is about 30 metres from the Francolin and Mongoose Suites, which overlook the natural rock swimming pool with cascading waterfalls. Aloes contrasted with the crimson bougainvillea surround the pool in a protective embrace, holding this exclusive place forever in your heart.
