About The Nautilus House

Discover the charm of The Nautilus House, a secluded bohemian family retreat located in The Crags, a mere 20-minute scenic drive from Plettenberg Bay. With sweeping views of the indigenous Tsitsikamma forest, this home offers an enchanting experience. Mornings are filled with the melodic songs of local birds, while picturesque trails lead you through the lush forest and to the serene Salt River. Enjoy the unique pleasure of a wood-fired Kol-Kol tub beneath a canopy of stars.

Self-Catering Accommodation

Welcome to a peaceful sanctuary where panoramic views of the Tsitsikamma forest and the surrounding mountains create a breathtaking backdrop. The Nautilus House provides a distinctive, tranquil retreat that feels like a true home away from home—a place you'll long to return to.

Perfect for families or two couples, this retreat features a pizza oven, braai, and spacious decks ideal for leisurely lunches and dinners under the moonlight. The property ensures complete exclusivity; once booked, the entire space is reserved solely for your use.

The hot tub and fireplace are the crowning jewels of this spacious holiday home, which includes comfortable living areas, two distinct bedrooms, and two bathrooms complete with a bathtub and complimentary toiletries.

The well-appointed kitchen is equipped with a stovetop, refrigerator, dishwasher, and oven, complemented by a barbecue for outdoor cooking. A terrace with garden views adds to the charm, along with amenities like a washing machine and a TV with streaming services. Strong Wi-Fi connectivity supports remote work, making this a perfect blend of serenity and productivity.

Situated within an eco-estate, the property is conveniently close to beaches, hiking trails, restaurants, wine farms, wildlife sanctuaries, and other engaging activities.

Exclusive Privacy

When you reserve The Nautilus House, the entire property is exclusively yours. This self-catering unit is rented to only one guest or group at a time. Couples will enjoy the main upstairs section, while groups of three or more will also have access to the downstairs area. Privacy is guaranteed regardless of the number of guests.

If you are traveling as friends and prefer separate sleeping arrangements, please let us know. We can provide access to the downstairs area if needed. Typically, bookings for two assume a couple, with all essentials prepared for a perfect stay.

Additional Notes

Please be aware that Vervet monkeys occasionally visit, so ensure no food or fruit is left unattended, and please do not feed them. The property is accessible via a 4 km gravel road off the main road; it is passable by sedan but can be a bit rough at times.
