Arniston Seaside Cottages

Arniston is a favoured subject for artists and movie-makers. It is here that the southern right whale can be spotted migrating to and from the Antarctic. Where dunes embroider endless beaches and rustic white-washed cottages overlook a deep blue sea. It's out of this world. Take a leisurely drive along the N2, over the magnificent Arniston, a fishing village two centuries old. Arniston is also known to some as waenhuiskrans, the incredible tidal cave, chiselled by time and the sea out of the sand-stone cliff. Our self catering cottages: Close to the beaches are Arniston Seaside Cottages, a cluster of impressive luxury thatch roof cottages, emphasising the unique personality of Arniston itself. They can accommodate groups from a honeymoon couple to a party of 80. The cottages have quarry tile floors, reed ceilings and open log fireplaces. The modern kitchens are fully equipped with everything from a microwave oven to a tin opener. The relaxed ambience is enhanced by cosy bedrooms and light and airy living areas, complemented with colourful Cape cane and pine furnishings. Some balconies have wonderful views of the sea and the surrounding dunes. So much to do : You can wander down to the slipway and bargain with local fisherman for fresh fish, or even catch your own Galjoen or Steenbras. Just a stone's throw away are rock-pools where you can gather your own oysters or other delectable shellfish. You can cook your catch over a braai in the privacy of your own thatched lapa. The cottages are serviced every day allowing you to relax and fit into the casual lifestyle of Arniston. Only a short distance away: The southern Cape coast is rich in maritime stories and a trip to the Bredasdorp Shipwreck Museum and Swellendam.
