*COVID-19 prevention measures in place include 72 hours between sets of guests, increased speed of uncapped wifi, disinfection of whole house between guests, and provision of appropriate germ-killing supplies.* Floating in a 100% indigenous garden, this unique 4 bedroom beach house boasts fabulous sea and mountain views, and has featured in more than 15 magazines, incl. SA House & Leisure and UK Elle Decoration, and TV's Top Billing. It's the perfect spot from which to explore the Overberg.
To maximise the magnificent views of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve mountains and the sea, including Jock's Bay beach (a residents' beach so never full), the main living areas in this house are upstairs and open plan, and include an inside living and eating area, and 2 balau silvered wooden decks, each with living and eating areas. Triple sliding doors create a seamless transition between the interior and exterior decks (and a windbreak when required!). The open plan kitchen is fully equipped. There are 4 bedrooms downstairs (2 with king beds, 2 with 2 single beds each). There are 3 bathrooms (master is en-suite), and a downstairs outside covered braai/barbeque area (and Weber). The downstairs has balau decking running all the way around it. There is no lawn, instead there is an established fynbos garden (100% endemic and indigenous species) that comes right up to the decks, in line with the biosphere reserve in which it is situated. The decor is a combination of modern, new pieces and inherited antiques, as well as unique pieces collected during the course of my travels to more than 70 countries.
Betty’s Bay lies on the southern Whale Route coast of the Western Cape, about 1.5 hours from central Cape Town, and 30 minutes from Hermanus. Betty’s Bay is a quiet seasonal holiday village, ideally suited to those who prefer outdoor living. Whale watching, walking, hiking, swimming, surfing, cycling & sand boarding are the sort of activities that one can enjoy here. It's Cape beach living at its best! There are lovely long silver sandy beaches, as well as a selection of small private beaches. Even in the busy season, the beaches are not heavily populated. Betty’s Bay boasts the attractions of the Stony Point land-based Penguin Colony (the world's largest breeding ground of African penguins), Harold Porter National Botanical Garden & the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. At Stony Point, the boardwalk makes penguin viewing a special treat. The walks, hikes, picnic spots and mountain bike routes in the Harold Porter Gardens and Kogelberg Reserve are spectacular. These wilderness areas form the central core of the Cape Floral Kingdom and are home to a huge range of flora & fauna species. The Palmiet River is also a favourite for swimming or canoeing. Horse riding on Kleinmond beach is highly recommended. Betty’s Bay is centrally located with Cape Town, Cape Town International Airport, Hermanus & the Cape winelands all around a 60-90 minutes drive away. The Arabella Golf Course is 15 minutes drive away. Arabella also has a world-class spa for pampering sessions. Note that Betty's Bay is quiet and peaceful. If you're looking for a town by the sea, then Hermanus is a better fit for you.
  • Belindas House is beautiful! It’s a great place to stay right next to the beach. The house is clever planned and very good to accommodate up to 6 people - unless it was just the two of us it was a great experience. The design is beautiful and the views are stunning. The area is lovely and it’s a 4 minute walk to a nice beach. The check I was super easy and very well planned with an app Belinda uses. The house was clean, it could be a bit cleaner in the kitchen area but it wasn’t a problem. If you like a hot shower you should shower during the day when the sun is shining, it’s beautiful you can open the sliding door and it feels like you shower outdoors, also the water is not very warm after the sun goes down. I asked Belinda for her advise and the responded quickly, so that is also not a big thing. I would definitely stay again. Thanks Belinda!

    Benjamin2020-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • A unique house in a unique spot. We felt very welcome in Belinda's beach house and enjoyed every moment of our stay. You'll be surrounded by beautiful design and art pieces yet, at the same time, everything is very practical and down to earth. The weather changes often, from bright sunshine to strong winds but you will feel good at anytime in that glass boat flying over the flynbos. With souimangas in the proteas and swallows in the front porch, it's also a perfect viewpoint for plant or bird spotters. Belinda is a lovely guest, answered questions swiftly and designed a very useful house guide. Highly recommended.

    Philippe2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a very special place that was built very carefully in the middle of nature. There are four very individual bedrooms and three full bathrooms. Living takes place on the first floor. The house has its own charm and character, unique and stylish! The balconies are wonderful and especially the large deck invites you to relax. The house is rightly named Fynbos Glass House. From the first moment we felt very comfortable in Belinda's house and also in Bettys Bay. There is a lot to explore and discover in the area and you can spend 1 week here very well. We would and want to come back again!

    Susanne2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • this place is Nice, beautiful and quiet. the house is so beautiful and very well equipped. we had a little problem with the BBQ and belinda immediately offered us a solution. I recommend this place to you

    François-Xavier2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Belinda’s house and it’s surroundings are breathtaking. It was so magical to open up the glass sliding doors or sit on one of the decks, and just gaze out at the ocean, hills and lush vegetation. The visit was worth it for that experience alone. We enjoyed looking around the house at all the books, art and other Knick-knacks. It’s the perfect place to enjoy with a group of friends or family. We loved walking the beach/trail around nearby Betty’s bay.

    Stephen2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Belinda house is really unique in the area - very modern and architecturally an eye-catcher. In the house there is everything you need for a pleasant stay. There is a great café with a delicious breakfast just around the corner.

    Sophia2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place, very peaceful and stylish. The perfect place to curl up with a good book, contemplate life, or simply enjoy good company.

    Richard2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fabulous few days at the Glasshouse. Stayed here with our 1 and 3 year old and although it happened to be the windiest few days in the Cape the house allows enjoyment of gorgeous mountain, fynbos and sea views in any conditions and from all rooms. Very well equipped and clean. Communication with Belinda perfect and Nozi the housekeeper a pleasure. An absolute gem in Bettys Bay!

    Sharon2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at dream cottage! It was really relaxing and the space had all the amenities we needed and a really well outfitted kitchen. The space at the top was fabulous for the kids and they loved playing there. I loved that they support the local artists and the local coffee table books etc. Really beautiful location at the edge of the nature reserve and great view. We will be back!

    Isabell2020-01-14T00:00:00Z

    The 50 sqm studio apartment is on the ground floor of our house with separate entrance and it’s own deck. The open space has a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, sitting area with TV, a pellet fireplace, and a very comfortable queen size bed with high quality cotton linen. The bathroom has a toilet, shower, bath tub and a sink. The small laundry has a washing machine and dryer just outside of the apartment. You have your own 40 sqm deck, we provide camping chairs and a small folding table.
    The studio apartment is totally private and separate from the rest of the house with its own entrance from the garden. The deck/terrace is also just for your own use. The laundry room is just outside of the apartment in the same building with a washing machine and a dryer. You can park your car in front of the apartment.
    This is a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. Rooi Els is a small beautiful conservation village, you feel that you are very close to nature. At the same time it is only an hour from Cape Town, half an hour from the vineyard. The house is about 80 km from Cape Town, 15 km from Gordon's Bay, 30 km from Somerset West. The village has a sandy beach, it is 3 min drive or 10 min walk from the house. Our house is in a mystic spot between the ocean and mountains, surrounded by waves, and fynbos. You can see baboons, dolphins, whales, seals, dassies and birds from the window. You have 270 degree ocean view.
  • Eva’s place is more stunning than the pictures could possibly display. The area is lovely and has some great hikes to offer. Tasty and walking distance located restaurants near the house. We will definitely come back! By far one of the best places to stay on the garden route!!!!!

    Hannah2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Dear Eva and Ken, We finally have to leave your beautiful home after 17 days. We have seen quiet some places in ZA and worldwide but your home does stand out! The first row sea view with the stunning mountain range as background is really special. Thanks for the easy communication despite being far away after the 2nd day of our stay, for the cleanliness Christine provided and the tips you gave us. Hope to be back some time! Cheers, Julia and Jens

    Julia2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Your own oasis at the edge of the ocean! Eva’s house is incredible. The views are spectacular. The house is fully stocked, safe and very comfortable. We made ourselves at home instantly. Bed and linens were clean and high quality. There is a huge sun deck to watch both sunrise and sunset. The views are spectacular (did I mention that already) - you may never want to leave. Tons of privacy and easy access to the small town of Rooi els. Thank you for a great stay Eva and Ken!

    Mark2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • What an absolutely beautiful stay. Thank you so much Eva. Check in was easy, the view is fantastic and there are many small touches in Eva's place to make the stay absolutely perfect. Sunsets are amazing and I would definitely visit this spot again. The flat is equipped with everything you need for a long or short stay and I would suggest to make it a as long as possible holiday next time.

    Melissa-Ann2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely amazing. The hostess really goes the extra mile with small touches to make this an unforgettable experience. Thanks Eva!

  • Great apartment, very relaxed and nice host.

    Lester2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Mila is a lovely host. The studio was more spacious than what I thought it would be. The patio was to die for with amazing views of the beach and the sun setting over the sea. Hardly 5 mins walk to the beach. I am sure we will be back!

    Este2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Pringle Bay. The location was just perfect for us. The apartment was a perfect match for our requirements and the amenities was everything we needed.

    Gregoire2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Mila's studio is absolutely stunning and perfect for a beach getaway, with a stunning view of the ocean and surrounding mountains. Peaceful area, private accommodation, lots of large open spaces inside and out, and everything was clean, very tastefully decorated yet comfortable with more than adequate appliances and facilities. Mila is an excellent hostess, being accommodating and informative without being intrusive. Most definitely going to be a regular visitor, thanks Mila!

    Monika2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place cozy and comfy very close to the beach and to lots of other places to see and experience :)

    Tinashe2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Mila is a very nice and open hostess. She took me on a tour of the place and showed me everything. That was a great experience. The studio was much bigger than expected. It's all there you need. The beach is within walking distance. You can see the water from the bed and hear the sound of the sea. I could relax and recharge my batteries. Due to the bad weather I could not use the large terrace with sea view.

    Julia2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Mila was a great host, very relaxed and fun. The studio is exactly like the photos, and the patio is a real sun trap. Beach only a few mins walk and was totally empty when I was there. Short walk to the restaurants and shops at Pringle Bay.

    Pringle Bay, Western Cape, South Africa

    Large secure single storey house in Rooi Els. Large patio. Sea views. 5 minutes walking to lagoon, slipway beach, local shop and pub and Rooi Els nature reserve. Renovated October 2017. Brand new kitchen, bathrooms, indoor braai, driveway, outdoor braai on the patio and outdoor shower. WiFi added November 2019.
    Rooi Els is a small, sea-side village situated in the Kogelberg Biosphere, 23 km outside of Gordon’s Bay, on the majestic Clarence Drive (R44). Rooi Els prides itself with being “one with nature” and is a perfect get-a-way for those seeking a peaceful, tranquil holiday in beautiful, natural surroundings. There is an abundance of wildlife that thrives in the fynbos vegetation, including tortoises, porcupine, mongoose, dussies (rock rabbits), baboons and many birds. Rooi Els is one of the few remaining places that provides a natural habitat for the endangered Oyster Catcher bird. Whales and dolphins are often spotted frolicking in the bay, particularly in the months between August and October. Rooi Els has a small local shop which is the perfect place to stop and buy the kids an ice cream on your walk back from the beach. It also has a restaurant / pub next to the shop, all within close walking distance. Rooi Els has a slip way for launching boats, as does Pringle Bay ( 7.2kms away). During crayfish season (normally between November and April) one can catch crayfish, provided you have a license and stick to the daily quotas and sizing regulations. The main beach at Rooi Els is within close walking distance from the house. The main beach has a fresh water lagoon that feeds into the sea. It is a shallow lagoon and is perfect for small children to play with fish nets, swim and collect shells while spending the day picnicking with the family. There are also areas in Rooi Els that are suitable for snorkelling and fishing, all within walking distance. Rooi Els is perfect for cycling and going on long walks or jogs.. Rooi Els is not suitable for those who wish to play loud music and host parties. Noise levels, in the evenings, must be kept to a minimum. The joy of Rooi Els is that it’s small and peaceful while still being relatively close to the city.
  • Kevin’s house is very spacious and well equipped. The view is great and Rooiels is always very peaceful. Had a great time here. Kevin was very responsive on any queries we had during our 5 week stay. An added bonus was the addition of WiFi during our stay.

    Mike2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible place, comfortable, modern and a beautiful view. Indoor braai is amazing, kitchen well equipped!

    Chris2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for families or large groups, the house is very spacious and well equipped with everything you’ll need. Beautiful sea views from the lounge and 2 bedrooms. The indoor braai was great seeing that we had some rain during our stay. Will definitely like to visit the property again.

    Kenny2019-04-21T00:00:00Z

  • This home is so inviting from the moment you step in the door. Kitchen is lovely the bathrooms are so neat and modern. Absolutely a beautiful home, clean and spacious. Perfect place to relax. Was warned about baboons in the guest manual which was so nice , you will jave encounters with baboons so just keep your cars locked when packing but they weren’t an issue. It was really an enjoyable time would recommend it to any person wanting to go to Rooi-Els

    Enjoy magnificent, uninterrupted sea views in a peaceful quiet location. The accommodation is the upstairs unit which includes a large lounge with leather couches and a fireplace, open plan kitchen with beautiful views, inside dining area and outside deck. There is nothing between you and the sea. While water remains a precious resource, we do not have water restrictions in RooiEls.
    Being on a peninsula there is sea on two sides of the house. The wildlife at the house is wonderful. Birds, dassies, mongoose, shrews and on occasion otters. Whales are seen often in season (August to October) and there is a colony of seals at the end of the point. Walks to the beach. There are also private nature reserves near by with beautiful walks.
    The joy of Rooi Els is that its small and peaceful while still being relatively close to the city. This is the first "village" on the coast out of town. On occasion we have the privilege of seeing baboons in Rooi Els when they come down from the mountains.
  • You can't get any closer to the sea and with sea and mountain views on 3 sides Carol's place is unique indeed.

    Sandi2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location with uninterrupted sea views. Beautiful sunsets. Rooiels beach is walking distance. The apartment is spacious with a relaxed and comfortable style. Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Eric2019-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I spent a weekend at Carol's place. It was amazing. It was a joy to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the sea. Will recommend it!

    Hannes2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Arrive to the most amazing view and location!! Right on the sea, sea views from 3 sides of the house with massive windows and a fabulous deck! We would have stayed here our whole trip if we had known how great the location was. The only (slight) downside was that you can't swim from in front of the house as there was too much kelp and seas too rough (1st world problems!) but the beach is close. Carol is a lovely host and very amenable. Don't miss this place out on your itinerary!!

  • Perfect for a romantic getaway!

    Corli2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Really a great apartment with cool details, good furnishings and a great view. Kerstin welcomed us very friendly and was also directly available for questions. The place itself seems cool, but since we were there in the off-season, it was somewhat extinct. But the stand is really nice and with the tips from Kerstin we also found good restaurants. Great apartment with an amazing view - we would definitely recommend staying there.

    Finn2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is our second time staying with Kerstin and we will definitely be back! Most beautiful little place with the best reading nook.

    Noelle2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • What can I say. One of the best Airbnb experiences I've had up to now. Amazing hospitality and tips of what to do in and around Pringle's Bay. Amazing views of the hills, the beach and everything in between. Kerstin also has amazing style and has definitely a talent for all things creative. This is something that every guest will notice from the moment you step into the place. Again Kerstin thank you so much for all the good conversations, your hospitality and readiness to accommodate our requests and just the very beautiful apartment. We will definitely be coming again!

    Sarah2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very comfortable with Kerstin. The apartment / loft was exactly as described or hoped for by us! The location and the associated view was of course a highlight ... Fantastic place to stay. Highly recommended!

    Arvid2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Almost too good to share: a perfect pad to perch from above Pringle Bay. Love the enormous bed, the window seat but above all, the wrap-around view.

    Connel James2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This has to be the best accomodation in Pringle Bay. The incredible view partnered with beautiful personal touches, and absolutely everything you could possibly want, has to be mentioned. Kerstin is an amazing host and her knowledge of the area will help you make the most of your stay!

    Within 5 minutes of stepping in through the door of the guest suite, it will feel as though you have left all stress and concerns behind, such is the magic of 227 Ocean View. Flora, fauna and nature embrace the space, creating an ambiance of peace and tranquility. The sunsets and moonrises are magical and on wind-freedays, the sea will take your breathe away. Birds sing their music, dolphins cavort in the bay, baboons bark and forage amongst the fynbos. A small glimpse of the magic.
    The Guest suite, consisting of three rooms, is a haven from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The open plan kitchenette/dining/lounge opens out onto a patio with views of the sea and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks. The fynbos garden surrounds the patio, allowing for birds to flit between proteas and pincushions and the occasional, shy tortoise to peer out of his shell as he munches on the pelargoniums. The patio is the perfect place to watch pink and orange sunsets with a sundowner in hand. In the evenings, on a clear night, what a privilege it is to sit back, checking out the night sky and the millions of twinkling stars, possibly being lucky enough to spot a meteor falling through the atmosphere or a satellite moving across the dark sky. The open plan living area allows for relaxation and conversation, with the garden being visible from the inside. There is a comfortable double bed in the living area, perfect for two small children to share. There is another spacious bedroom featuring a comfortable king-size bed, perfect for a great night's sleep after a busy day exploring the surrounds. If one is feeling lazy, draw back the curtains and check out the sea view and fynbos from the comfort of the bed. There is a working studio situated on the property, outside of the guest suite. The owner is a qualified Tour Guide who is available for tours should the guests be interested.
    Rooiels is situated in the Kogelberg Biosphere. Nature surrounds the house, with the ocean and the mountain being visible from the house. The fynbos garden attracts birds with the many different scented and nectar laden flowers, such as protea, pincushions and erica to name but a few of the many beautiful plants that grow around the house. Leopard, porcupine, mongoose and baboons are some of the creatures that call Rooiels home. The main beach is perfect for a swim on a hot summer day and is an easy 10 mins walk. Otters' Cove is a short walk from the house, where there is a delightful gully in which to gently snorkel or swim. For those who are a little more active, there is a great walk, scrabbling over rocks, to check out the Seal Colony and various sea birds. Besides the activities listed above, there are numerous walks and hikes, both serious and gentle, available for the whole family. In the village, there a three restaurants. The Drummond Arms is a local pub that is very informal, serving great burgers and delicious fish and chips. Something Els is more upmarket, serving traditional roasts, pizzas and yummy desserts. A new addition to Rooi Els, is the newly constructed, Gossip Corner, which is to serve upmarket, contemporary meals and great coffee. Rooi Els has a 5km walking/running route, that is suitable all levels, that takes one through the whole village, fynbos and beach. Bird watchers may think that they have landed in paradise as the variety of birds to be seen is a feast. Of particular interest is the elusive Rock Jumper and the Verreux's Eagle, of which there is a pair nesting high up Klein Hangklip Mountain. Leopard have been sighted during the day, so one may be lucky! Rooikat or Caracal also have made their appearance. We do have a tour guide on hand should guests require an in depth exploration of the many various places of interest that surround Rooi Els, as well being taken to some hidden gems that are known only to the locals. Hiking up Klein Hangklip and checking out the seals, foraging for mussels and other delicious edibles are the tour guide's passion. Bookings can be arranged. The Shop in Rooi Els is stocked with everything should the guests be short of something. Staff are super friendly and helpful as are all people in Rooi Els. Pringle Bay is a 10 min drive around the mountain. PB has a great beach, a great town center, with a market taking place every Saturday morning and a choice of good restaurants. All who visit Rooi Els return home feeling recharged and energised. Come and experience its Magic!

  • Engela is a great host. She warmly welcomed us and said goodbye again. The lovingly furnished accommodation left nothing to be desired. 2 great bedrooms with very good beds. In addition to the wonderful outdoor seating, there was a nice living room, kitchen and bathroom. We are happy to come back anytime.

    Peter2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our family really enjoyed the stay in the apartment. It was very clean and had beautiful details. The area is just wonderful. We had a spectacular view at the mountains. The beach is very close and amazing. Engela is very friendly and helpful. Thanks and we would stay again!

    Julian2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Evan2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful place to stay. Betty’s Bay was a very pleasant surprise, far more rustic and natural than the ever expanding neighbouring Hermanus. The beach just down the lane is a secret treasure, as is the accommodation, which is pristine and super-cosy. Engela was a perfect host, with lots of local information. We would love to stay here again!

    Tim2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Betty's Bay, Western Cape, South Africa

    The room is well located and only a few short steps from the beach. The room has an attached bathroom, and the accommodation is well suited for couples, pairs of friends, solo adventurers, and business travelers. The bed can be split into two single beds if requested.
    You'll be staying in a private room attached to our house, with a private entrance. It is a three minute walk to the beach (if you walk slowly). The room has a private bathroom with a shower and has a king-size bed that can be separated into two single beds (upon request). There is a small fridge and kettle to make coffee or tea. Freshly ground coffee for the French press is supplied as well as tea and rusks. Fresh milk is supplied which you will find in the fridge. The room is an ideal spot for surfers as one can easily carry a board from the house to the beach. The center of town, where the restaurants and other shops are located, is less than 10 minutes of walking from the house, or a very short drive. The room is very quiet and peaceful and you should be able to enjoy a refreshing night's sleep.
    Pringle Bay is a quiet town with a lovely beach surrounded by nature on all sides, and has many options for outdoor activities. The town has several restaurants and coffee shops to experience, ranging from take-aways to fine dining. There is a gorgeous main beach, as well as two lesser known "secret" beaches. Rooi-Els and Betty's Bay are a short drive away, and one can visit a penguin colony and see penguins from up close in Betty's, visit a few more restaurants, or even sand-board, for the more adventurous. A little further on, close to Kleinmond, there is also the option to horse-riding.
  • A lovely self contained room with shower room. Very clean and nice touches like nice coffee, milk etc. We enjoyed 2 nights at Rinie's place, the beach is beautiful and clean and a short walk away. Nice selection of shops nearby so you don't have to leave the area.

    Jane2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful surprise! I would describe it more as a small studio rather than a room. It was clean, fresh, luminous, had its own entrance and very welcoming. We highly recommend it!

  • We had a wonderful time with Ferdi and Rinie. You welcomed us great with a cold drink. Then Rinie booked us directly for dinner in her favorite restaurant. The restaurant is 400 meters from the property and can also be reached on foot in the evening. We didn't have to worry about anything after our arrival and were able to go directly to the super beautiful beach 50 meters away. Any time. Thank you very much.

    Pringle Bay, Western Cape, South Africa

    This delightful, sunny self-catering holiday suite is a separate self-contained upstairs unit. It has its own entrance, and has lovely mountain views from the windows and balcony. You can be sure to experience beautiful sunsets as you look out over the fynbos and up at Hangklip. It is the ideal home away from home for travelers looking for a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
    This lovely suite consists of an open plan double bedroom and living area which opens onto a small balcony. There is a full bathroom with bath and shower plus a fully equipped kitchenette. You can expect to find crisp linen on the bed, soft towels in the bathroom, and a bunch of beautiful flowers to further brighten the living space. Tea, Rooibos, coffee, milk and sugar are provided, plus linen and bath towels. Netflix and WiFi are also available. Pringle Haven is situated a mere 300m from the beach and 7 minutes’ walk to the centre of the village. Why not stop in for a coffee and be sure to visit the various shops and galleries, and enjoy all that Pringle Bay has to offer.
    Pringle Bay is a small coastal village in the Western Cape, just over an hour from Cape Town on the N2 and about 50 minutes from Cape Town International airport. Although small, the village centre has everything that a guest in a self catering unit might need. There are 2 delicatessens, a mini supermarket, bottle store, bookshop, a surf shop that sells beach clothes, and a charity shop selling 2nd hand clothes and household goods. And a hardware store, although a visit there should not be necessary when on holiday ! There are a choice of coffee shops, restaurants and a couple of pubs. And shops of interest such as crafts and art. The village market every Saturday is a must. Apart from the beautiful beach, you can go for walks and hikes in the surrounding Fynbos. A visit to the penguins at Stoney Point on the way to Betty's Bay along the R44 is a must. As is the bird hide at Rooisand, between Kleinmond, a little further along the R44, and Hermanus, where you are more than likely to see the wild horses. In Kleinmond, make sure you visit Harbour Road. It is well worth strolling around. There are many interesting and quaint shops, as well as restaurants.
  • Clean and comfortable! Definitely a good stay!

    Rustic, 3 bedroom seaside self catering accommodation in a safe and secluded village less than an hour`s drive from Cape Town. We are most certainly pet friendly so bring your best friend!
    This quaint and recently renovated holiday home in the idylic coastal holiday village of Rooiels offers self catering accommodation for up to 6 guests. Fully equipped kitchen, indoor and out door BBQ`s makes this home the perfect place for a family holiday close to the sea. Op-i-c, directly translated as "On-the Sea" has been in our family since 1969, when my grandfather and legendary journalist, Skakel Kriek bought it along with three other plots. The legacy of Skakel, one of the first journalists to interview Nelson Mandela in 1972, lives on in a house with a colourful history, filled with memories of large Christmas gatherings and late night conversation. Its is perfect for a family holiday or why not come and enjoy a romantic short break away from the stresses of everyday living. The picturesque village of Rooiels lies close to the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, an area of such natural beauty and floral diversity that it is recognized by UNESCO as one of the world's greatest biodiversity hot-spots. Scenery varies from rocky coastlines to pristine white beaches and stunning sunsets over False Bay, a true haven for bird watchers and temporary home to visiting Southern Right Whales from August to November.
    Rooiels is a small seaside village, famous for its magnificent views over False Bay. Rooiels forms part of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, the first and only Biosphere in South Africa to be proclaimed by United Nations' Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO). Situated along Clarence Drive Route, reputed as the finest marine drive in the world, Rooiels is the first village to be explored along the stretch of coastline through to Pringle Bay, Betty's Bay and Kleinmond. These four towns are commonly known as the Hangklip - Kleinmond area. If you are a avid birdwatcher or wildlife photographer this is the place to be: This is arguably the most accessible site close to Cape Town for the legendary Cape Rockjumper, a name that correctly conjures up images of boulder-hopping creatures. Rooiels is a favourite angling and shellfish diving spot, with a rich variety of seaplants along its coast. Please note a permit is required for the harvesting of ANY marine species. The unpolluted beach of Rooiels offers safe swimming to all family members.
  • It was our second time. There will be many more! Great location!

We will definitely be back!

    Sitting on the stoep and taking in the mountain views is good for the soul! That's why we called our BnB "Meraki" meaning "joy in what you do". Betty's Bay offers so much! Visit the penguins at Stony Point. Go hiking at Harold Porter Botanical Garden. Or go sand boarding at Silverstrand beach only an 8 minute walk away. We are an hour from the Airport along the spectacular Clarence drive. Remember to look for whales in the Winter and Spring months. Guest from all backgrounds welcome!
    Our Double room comes with free Wi-Fi, a flat screen TV, tea/coffee making facilities, an en-suite bathroom, a queen-sized bed and a window desk with views of Bleskop hill. You will also receive secure parking and breakfast for two.
    Our neighbourhood -Silversands- is the closest part of Betty's Bay to Cape Town and Pringle Bay. It is a peaceful neighbourhood, where much of the natural fynbos vegitation has been preserved. The quiet streets are wonderful for taking long walks.

The breakfast was excellent, whenever I was "at home" he offered me tea, biscuits. It was a lovely stay and I can recommend Rudolph's place to everbody. Met young people from Germany there, had a nice evening together with a few glasses of wine. Also elderly people from South Africa come to the Mariaki lodge and enjoy the wonderful white beach of Bettys Bay Thank you very much, Rudolph. You are doing a great job Elisabeth from Austria

    Gemutlichkeit,Privatsphäre,Entschleunigung sind neben der fast schnulzig anmutenden Natur in diesem Bereich, meine persönlichen Gründe immer wieder hier her zu kommen. Nicht zu verachten ist die Aussicht, das Haus ist im Hang gebaut und bieten Sicht auf Sonnenaufgang zwischen den Bergen, Sonnenuntergang am Kapdergutenhoffnung und einen Blick über die gesamte falsebai. Also ich surfe nicht aber das geht hier auch prima, 4minuten zu Fuss und ab in die Fluten.
    Auf dem Weg zum Strand begegnet man einem Lokal mit sehr fairen Preisen und überraschend fröhlichen Mitarbeitern, einen Tanteemmaladen gibt's noch dazu und auch sonst eine freundliche und hilfsbereite Gemeinde in dem Ort.
  • Rustic house in a pretty nature conservancy. Lovely view from the deck. At night you can see the lights at Cape Point across False Bay.

The lunch with sparkling wine upon arrival blew us away as did the welcome from our hosts. The Christmas decorations were a lovely touch and made our Christmas lunch extra special. We immediately felt right at home. The house is beautifully furnished with all the creature comforts from home and deserving of a 5 star rating. We will definately be back in the near future.

    Andrew2017-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Stay there. More then perfect!

    Cezary2017-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very comfortable and the view wonderful! The location of Rooiels is convenient as we were able to visit Capetown, the valley of wines, Hermanus and its whales and the Cap de l'Aiguille. The hospitality of Conrad's parents is more than warm! A huge thank you!

    Chantal2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in a fantastic location right on the coastline looking over a beautiful rocky bay, with mountains in the back garden! The location is quiet, peaceful and dramatic, and the house itself is fitted out to a very high quality throughout. Piet and Petro are wonderfully warm and welcoming, and were extremely helpful during our stay. A very easy-to-give 5-stars. Highly recommended.

    Dave2017-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Such kind and generous hospitality we have never before encountered! We arrived at this beautiful home and were met by Piet and Petro, Conrad's parents. Petro had set a beautiful table and provided us with a delicious finger lunch and champagne and had also packed the fridge with everything for a full breakfast for the next day as well as salads, drinks and wine! Wow, we were amazed and so appreciative of this incredible kindness. The house was immaculately clean and tidy and very comfortable. The uninterrupted sea views were mesmerizing and we had the most wonderful stay. We can highly recommend this wonderful home and generous hosts and we can't wait to go back!

    Stavy2017-01-09T00:00:00Z

    Nemone2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best-kept secrets of Pringle Bay. It's simplicity and functional layout makes for a relaxed stay. The property is tucked inside a lush garden that hides neighbours, so you do feel hidden and private – a plus with all the glass doors. One small detail to note is that the kitchen does not have an oven. This did not bother us as we made use of the BBQ :)

    Olivier2019-11-12T00:00:00Z

  • We had an absolutely fabulous time at this home, spent with close family and friends in celebration of a special birthday. The house exceeded our expectations on all levels and the setting is certainly “parfait”! Thank you Anthony for making our stay extra special with all the personal touches and handy tips.

    Ronell2019-08-25T00:00:00Z

    Yassar2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable living space. So much room to enjoy. Spectacular views and very well equipped. We had a fabulous Braai one night after shopping at shops close to the house. Anthony is a very welcoming and responsive host. The location is perfect as you can pop into Cape Town, Hermanus or wine country for the day and return to this oasis.

    Christine2018-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Tony was a absolutely stunning host, accommodation was exactly a described and actually more. We really want to go back soon. Thanks to you and your wife Tony.

    Leon2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • We would definitely stay here if we were in Gordon's Bay again. Anthony was a great host - available when needed to explain something or offer advice. The view from the house is amazingly gorgeous and we enjoyed every morning's coffee/tea on the deck... and every evening's gorgeous sunset with a glass of wine. :) The house is very spacious and has everything you need. It was great having 5 bedrooms with 5 separate FULL bathrooms (showers AND tubs!). It is a very private house as it sits at the top of the hill and has a beautiful mountain view behind the house and an unbeatable ocean / sunset view off the various front decks. The house has everything you need in the kitchen, large dining room, the living room (TV, stereo sound, etc. - although we never once turned on the TV!), the bathrooms (towels, etc.) and laundry room. We didn't use the pool, but it also has a nice view and seems to be a great dipping option on a hot day. There is a cat or two that comes in and out of the house to eat, but if you don't give them attention, they really are not even noticeable. We enjoyed Daisy's presence & gave her lots of love, however, so she regularly curled up with us in the evenings. Gordon's Bay is a very tranquil place to stay, so it's great for a peaceful, relaxing vacation. There are a few good restaurants, and it's close to the Strand for a nice beach day. If you're not renting a car to get around, Uber is available from the house, but it almost always took 15-20 minutes for an Uber to arrive (that's how peaceful and "up there" on the mountain it is!). It's still a nice place to stay and easy enough to get to Stellenbosch, wine country and Cape Town. Enjoy!

    Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

    Cherrywood is a quaint wooden cottage ideal for a quick getaway an hour from Cape Town. Situated 150m from the sea and 1,5km from the town centre with shops, restaurants and bars. Pringle Bay boasts stunning snorkeling and diving, beautiful hiking and biking routes and great surfing and fishing spots. It is centered in the world renowned Kogelberg Fynbos Biosphere and Cape Peninsula Coral Gardens.
    Our cottage has been in the family for over 20 years now. It belonged to one of the town's land surveyors before we bought it, making it one of the first houses in Pringle Bay. There are two outside braai areas. One is built in on a South facing veranda but is well sheltered by a wall and trees. The second (the family favorite pictured below) is a mobile braai on wheels which is on a North Western facing veranda with a sea view and and is sheltered on the Eastern side by the house. This veranda is the best place to be when the South Easter blows. The house also features an inside fireplace, ideal for winter, but is not really big enough to braai in.
    According to SA-Venues: The little seaside village of Pringle Bay is one of the towns set within the natural beauty of the Kogelberg Biosphere, the only reserve in South Africa to be proclaimed by UNESCO, which supports over 1600 species of fynbos, 150 of which are endemic. The charming village is nestled at the foot of the Hangklip Mountain and jealously guarded by its residents who frown upon unnecessary developments such as tarred roads and street lights. And rightly so as the town is beautifully secluded and unspoilt - lying quite far from the main coastal road and almost entirely within the shadow of the Hangklip, which marks the south-eastern point of False Bay. The naturally beautiful environment is home to a wide variety of birdlife and animals and, although historically a holiday town, there are a growing number of people, particularly artists, those in the theatre and film industry and people on retirement, who are choosing to live here permanently. Only an hour’s drive from Cape Town, Pringle Bay offers an idyllic outdoor lifestyle: safe swimming, snorkelling around the many rock pools and crevices on the beach; diving for abalone, rock lobster and crayfish - although you will need a permit to do so - and amazing opportunities for bird watching that include the Sunbird, Sugar bird and the African Black Oystercatcher. Pringle Bay falls within a protected area - one needs a permit to fish - and all the breeding bird colonies in the area are protected. For this reason, you’re more likely to catch a glimpse of animal life such as the Cape Clawless Otter and rare birds, and you have the added wonder of the Southern Right whale that visits these shores from June through December. The scenic R44 Clarence Drive, which meanders through Rooiels, Pringle Bay, Bettys Bay and Kleinmond, offers simply magnificent views across False Bay. This steep coastal road, which follows the natural curve of the rocky sea cliffs on the coast, provides great whale watching spots along its route. Other activities in the area include hiking trails through the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, Hermanus with some of the best land-based whale watching in the world and Swellendam; a Penguin colony breeds on the mainland at Stony Point in Betty’s Bay or you can simply sit on the expansive beach at Pringle Bay and drink in the beauty of the surrounds.
  • We had a wonderful weekend at Cherrywood cottage, it has a wonderful homey feel and it had everything we needed for the weekend. There is a lovely outdoor area where you can sit around and enjoy the braai and beautiful sea views. Elza provides lovely tips and info about the local area which is really great to have and responds really quickly if you have any questions. Would definitely recommend staying here!

  • We had an amazing time in Cherrywood cottage. It's a no-frills cabin but doesn't lack anything you would need. Super cosy with the fireplace going inside, heats up the place instantly. There are a lot of board games to keep everyone busy during winter or rainy days with lots of comfortable space to lounge around the fire. The view and braai on the front stoep is superb. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need, with a gas oven/stove, big fridge and microwave. The cottage was super clean and communication from the host was clear and quick. Its such a quick drive from Cape Town and the perfect weekend getaway spot. Will definitely be back!

  • The place is absolutely lovely and it has an outstanding view over the ocean. Our stay was short but we got to enjoy the place and the surroundings. The area is calm, ideal for those who don't enjoy places crowded with tourists. Renate was a great host, super welcoming and seemed to understand her guest's needs. Hope to go back sometime :)

  • Thank you Edda and Michael, we absolutely loved our stay. You were such kind and friendly hosts and made us feel so welcome. More importantly you loved our dogs, Henry and Molly and our baby cat, Gypsie and they totally loved you back. We loved the peaceful garden and beautiful views. Thank you for such a lovely and happy stay. A fantastic holiday accommodation, especially if you want to bring your animal babies along with you. We would love to be back soon. Thank you Dayna and Raine and all 3 babies.
