About Bird Rock Cottage

Just 700 metres from the Blue Flag Grotto Beach and a pebble's throw from popular VoŽlklip and Nannies' Beaches, Bird Rock Cottage welcomes you into its easy-going lifestyle. It's a small, recently built double-storey house. Open-plan living makes for a relaxed indoor-outdoor flow, and the sheltered garden is a lush, tranquil retreat from the brightness of the beach.

Self Catering Accommodation

Bird Rock Cottage Holiday Home in Hermanus has one bedroom that spans the entire top floor. It is furnished with a double bed, a cot, a lounge area and a counter-high workstation/sundowner table. The picture windows in two walls offer views of waves breaking at Grotto and VoŽlklip beaches, and as far as Hermanus' old fishing harbour.

You'll also have views of the mountain close by. More than a room to retire to at night, this large, airy space is often the preferred living area - perfect for couples or two-child families. (The house can accommodate a maximum of four guests.)

Downstairs, in the open-plan living area, is a three-quarter bed in a sleeping alcove and a single sleeper couch, which is suitable for a child. The bathroom is also downstairs. It has a toilet, a basin, and a shower that is deep enough to use as a sit bath. A bath towel and hand towel will be set out for each guest.

The kitchen (part of the open-plan living area) is equipped with a 271-litre fridge, a two-zone induction stove, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, coffee plungers, a single-burner gas stove for use during loadshedding, and ample cutlery, crockery and glassware. A dining table seats four, and al fresco meals can be enjoyed at the table in the courtyard too. There is no television. Free uncapped 40 Mbps fibre wi-fi is available. Two portable rechargeable lights are on standby for loadshedding. Two fans are provided.

A patio braai place on wheels is at hand. Firewood and firelighters will be provided for your first braai.
There is a single garage with direct access to the cottage and also off-street parking.

Attractions

Situated in a quiet residential area of VoŽlklip (meaning Bird Rock), the small double-storey house is tucked away from the street. You'll be within walking distance of the neighbourhood supermarket, close to fine restaurants and just up the road from Grotto, VoŽlklip and Nannies beaches and the lagoon, popular for a variety of water sports including kiteboarding.

To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.
