About Cottage-on-the-Rocks

Cottage-on-the-Rocks is a fully equipped self-catering establishment nestled in the heartbeat of the town of Hermanus.

Self Catering Accommodation

The cottage has one bedroom which is furnished with a double bed. There is also a sleeper couch which can sleep two children under the age of 12. Alternative arrangements can be made for more beds, but an extra cost will be applicable.

The cottage is pet friendly but preferably for small dogs only. There is a Family DStv package to keep the children happy! The cottage also has a braai facility.


The cottage is close to the world-famous Hermanus Cliff path and is approximately 1,5km from the CBD area. It is also close to Mediclinic, Gateway Spar complex, the fire brigade and gym.

Grotto Beach was recently graded as a Blue Flag Beach and is one of the safest and widest beaches in South Africa. During whale season, you will find that Hermanus has a vibrant buzz to it, making it one of the most desirable holiday destinations in the world. You will find whale watching, canoeing, sunset boat cruises, horse riding, scuba diving, paintball, archery and many more activities all year round. Expect to see wild horses running in the Fisher Haven area, approximately 15 km from Hermanus. Onrus River is yet another beach where youngsters like to gather around.

Why not take the family on a mountain bike trail; there are various difficulty levels to choose from, or opt to go on the mountain drive and watch the sunset with a view of all the mentioned areas. On Saturdays, why not watch an old classic movie at Romantiques for a mere donation, while stocking up on those old-time favourite sweets, popcorn and drinks.

Venture a little further to Stanford with its cheese farm, local restaurants and river rafting, horse riding, boat cruises, etc. A little further (approximately 45km away) is Gansbaai and Uilenkraalsmond. Take the children to De Kelders to see the famous caves or simply have a braai on your own doorstep, with the sound of waves against the rocks.

A real break-away for the tired soul.
