About Pacem Self Catering Cottage

Pacem, a thatch roof self-catering cottage in VoŽlklip, Hermanus, has a magnificent view on the mountain as well as the sea.

The cottage is on the slopes of the mountain very close to the Fernkloof nature reserve trails with its abundance of fynbos, the major vegetation type of the small botanical region known as the Cape Floral Kingdom. Fynbos, or "fine bush" refers to the fine needle-like leaves of many fynbos species. The Blue Flag status Grotto Beach is right below, about 10 minutes leisurely walk. Pacem is situated in a quiet area of this popular seaside resort.

Self Catering Accommodation

The cottage is regarded as a single unit, guests have the cottage for themselves. The main attraction of the cottage is the spacious open plan living area upstairs which opens on a sunny stoep. From there you have the beautiful view on the mountain. The living room also features a dining area and kitchen. The open thatch roof provides the living room with its special ambience. The built-in barbeque ensures a cosy get-together even during the stormy winter weather. Two large en suite bedrooms are on the ground floor. The cottage is fully equipped.

The mountain trails start 5 minutes from the front door and a walk to the beach takes less than 10 minutes.


Hermanus, a very popular holiday resort, is a 90-minute drive (120 km) from Cape Town. VoŽlklip is a suburb of Hermanus about 5 km from the busy town centre featuring mainly holiday homes. Hermanus is one of the worldís best land-based sites for whale watching (season - July to November). Or swim at the Blue Flag Grotto Beach, VoŽlklip Beach, Kamma Beach or Long Bay.

A beautiful golf course, walking trails along the mountain slopes and seashore, mountain biking, sailing and horse riding facilities, shops and numerous restaurants make visiting Hermanus a wonderful experience. A long late-afternoon walk on the seemingly endless Grotto Beach is one of the many reasons why visitors keep coming back to Hermanus.
