Arniston Seaside Cottages, Arniston, Overberg, Western Cape.

A fishing village two centuries old, where dunes embroider endless beaches and rustic whitewashed cottages overlook a deep blue sea. A favourite for artists and moviemakers. The cottages are close to the beach and accommodate honeymoon couples to groups of up to 80.  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.  Cosy bedrooms and airy living areas, complemented with Cape cane and pine furnishings.  Some balconies have wonderful views of the sea and the surrounding dunes.  Wander down to the slipway and bargain with local fishermen for fresh fish, or even catch your own steenbras or galjoen.  There are rock pools nearby where you can gather your own oysters or other shellfish.  Cook you catch over a braai in the privacy of your own thatched lapa.  Serviced daily.The Southern Cape coast is rich in maritime stories – take a trip to see the Bredasdorp Shipwreck Museum and the L’Agulhas Lighthouse.  The De Hoop Nature Reserve and historical towns like Swellendam are close by. Whale-watching from June through November.
