Good value for money. The tourist booklet supplied in the cottage is nicely put together but a map of the area needs to be added so that strangers to the area can discover exactly where places talked about in the text, such as Roman Beach and Marcus Bay, are situated. We never did discover if Kassiesbaai is another name for Arniston or the name of the bay where Arniston is placed.

We had a very pleasant stay. The cottage was spacious and well furnished with all necessary requirements for self catering. The electric blankets were a pleasant and welcome surprise. One suggestion - racks for suitcases would be nice. It would mean one does not have to get down to floor level to find things in one's suitcase. Thanking you Maureen

Just stayed one night, but we were upgraded to a cottage for 4, which was very spacious and clean, with two bedrooms and an open-plan sitting, dining and kitchen area. Two bathrooms, and a braai area with seating outside. Just a stone's throw from the beach and small harbour where you can see the fishing boats coming in daily with their catch. Lots to do in the area, with the local hotel available for a drink in the bar. Breakfast can be arranged if you require. Recommended accommodation, we enjoyed our short stay.
