Straw House is an architect-designed beach house built with straw bales, offering spacious and comfortable self-catering accommodation in Elands Bay on the West Coast of South Africa. The house is a 3-hour drive to the North from the City of Cape Town.
The thick bale walls protect from the relentless winds, keeping the rooms cool in the hot dry summers and warm in the cold winters. The modern design of Straw House is softened through the use of simple fittings and natural building materials, creating the ultimate location to unwind.
This 6-sleeper house comprises 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the first with a shower and toilet while the second has a bath and toilet. The bedroom area is joined by a North African-style 'chill out' area to the south.
There is also an open-plan living area with a kitchen that is equipped with a fridge, freezer, gas oven and stove, a lounge with a fireplace and a dining area with a 6-seater dining table. A teak sliding door and stack doors open onto a tranquil courtyard.
Outside, guests have access to a braai area with outdoor furniture. Parking is available for 3 to 4 vehicles.
