About Oystercatcher Lodge
Just a short journey from Cape Town, off the R27 West Coast Road, you will discover an exquisitely beautiful place called Shelley Point. Here you will find the Oystercatcher Lodge, an elegant villa on the beach. All guest rooms are en-suite with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean from your bed.
The Oystercatcher Lodge is the venue to experience the natural beauty and simplicity of the West Coast, in style! (2005, 2006, 2007 AA Travel Guide Accommodation)
Bedrooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with Mediterranean, African and Beach style flair. All rooms have private balconies where you can see views of both the sunrise and sunset over the sea. (St. Helena Bay is one of the only three natural bays on the mainland coastlines of the world where you can see this phenomenon)
A sumptuous breakfast is served in the dining room, or al fresco in the summer.
Spend some quiet hours at the pool, or in the comfortable lounge, with satellite TV, cappuccino / espresso machine and well stocked bar.
The Oystercatcher Lodge is an ideal base from which to explore the West Coast and its hinterland. Excursions to charming and picturesque little villages such as Paternoster, Elands Bay, Lamberts Bay and Langebaan are an excellent way to engage with the locals and appreciate their culture and food.

The West Coast
The West Coast is best known for its seasonal carpets of wild flowers from late July to September. Enjoy leisurely walks along the beautiful sandy beaches, taking care not to disturb the Black Oystercatchers who nest along the high water mark.
The Oystercatcher Lodge is perfectly positioned for watching the Southern Right Whales who come in from the sub-Antartica to mate and calve, for most of the year along these shores. The 9-hole golf course is in walking distance of the lodge.
Swiss and South African owners, Luc and Sue Christen have over 25 years’ experience in the hospitality industry, and look forward to welcoming guests to their delightful guest lodge.
