Description

Strandlopertjies Cottage is a lovely self-catering stone cottage on the riverfront at the mouth of the Breede River. It is north facing with a beautiful sandy beach right in front of the cottage. It is about 15 minutes walk along the river banks to the sea.

The setting of this cottage is 5 star. You can sit on the stoep or under the milk wood trees and watch the rich bird life, the boats passing by, the tides coming in and out, see the beautiful sunset or the Blue Cranes flying in at dusk coming to sleep on the river banks for the night. You can have a lovely braai (maybe your catch of the day) under the milkwood trees as the sun sets.

Accommodation comprises 2 double beds (one in the main bedroom and one in the lounge), a double bunk bed (in the smaller second bedroom) and a bathroom fitted with a shower, toilet and a basin. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, microwave, stove and oven. Please note that there is no television. A lovely stove fireplace will warm up your winter evenings and add to the cosy atmosphere.

Guests do not have access to shops, only a small farm shop for the basics. Please note that the last hour is a gravel road from Swellendam or Bredasdorp. Usually, it is in a good condition but sometimes it can be quite rough. No 4x4 is needed though.

Also just take note that there is no municipal services in this area so guests are requested to remove their own garbage bags to a rubbish dump about 2 km from the cottage. Guests should bring their own linen and towels, only duvet inners and pillow inners are provided.

The Breede River Lodge, famous for its seafood dishes is right across the river, or guests can visit the very popular Bush Pub about 15 km up the river. Strandlopertjies is about 40 minutes from the De Hoop Nature Reserve, famous for its bird life. The last pontoon in our country is 20 minutes away in the picturesque Malgas.

Bait can be pumped during low tide and fish can be caught with the incoming tide, right in front of the cottage. A boat can also be anchored in the river (where it is seen from the house) for the duration of your stay.

The mouth of the Breede River is also seen as one of the 10 best kitesurfing spots in the world. Also great for sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, fishing, fly fishing, hiking, swimming and snorkeling at the sea. It is paradise for children, providing safe swimming right in front of the cottage.

If you are someone who likes to stay indoors and concentrate on luxuries around you, if you love shops and malls, is a party animal who loves loud music and noise, this is not the place for you.

If you are a nature lover and an outdoor person, if you love quiet and peace, this will be paradise for you!
