About Cactus Lodge

Cactus Lodge is a beautiful self-catering lodge situated in Betty's Bay between two lakes and is surrounded by the Kogelberg Mountains biosphere and the warm inviting Indian Ocean.


Cactus Lodge has five beautifully decorated en-suite rooms. Downstairs the dining area, decorated in a zebra theme, opens onto the inner courtyard where guests can sunbathe on sun loungers or enjoy the braai facilities.

There is a fully equipped kitchen for you to whip up your own culinary delights. Relaxation upstairs includes a TV with DStv (bring your own card) and video facilities combined with a games room and a sundeck which offers breath-taking panoramic views. You can almost fish in either of the lakes from the sundeck and the sunsets are something special.

In the evenings you can gather together in the comfortable lounge which has a huge fireplace big enough to fit in logs the size of tree stumps.

Activities and Attractions

These include shark diving, fantastic surfing, grade 3 white water rafting, kloofing, sand boarding down huge dunes, skydiving, paragliding, grade 16-30 mountain climbing, abseiling, day long hair raising mountain bike trails. (Bikes are available for hire from Second Hand Rose bookstore).

Verified reviewexcellent

We celebrated our daughter's 21st with a few of her and our friends at Cactus Lodge. As a family we have not been away in years, and were so excited for the weekend! It is rare to find accommodation for 12 people at a reasonable rate and Cactus lodge was beyond our expectations! The pics did not do the house justice at all. It is spacious, well equipped, cozy and comfortable. We could all easily fit in the kitchen area or upstairs. The bonus was that the youngsters could have the back rooms to themselves while we relaxed in the living areas at night. We will most definitely be returning at some stage, and can highly recommend a trip to Cactus Lodge. Thanks guys!

Verified reviewvery good

We thoroughly enjoyed our time together at the lodge and the kids especially loved the loft space upstairs....we hardly saw them but the sound of their continuous and contagious laughter certainly brought smiles to our faces. The lodge is comfortably large and accommodating yet at the same time communal and cozy. The day trips to the beach, exploring nearby towns, then returning to the lodge for some relaxation, good food and great company, made our stay a memorable one. We will be returning soon for more of the same, with some more of our clan. Thanks to the owners and our very gracious host. 😊👌
