Accommodation

Casa Barracuda - 8 Sleeper

Private, out of the wind, closest to the beach but the most limited (although still spectacular!) view.

Casa Guicoli (Sea-Turtle) - 8 Sleeper

The house with the most beautiful view, right at the top. This unit is the easiest to access for those with soft-roaders or 4x2's.

Casa Baleia (whale) - 4 Sleeper

Stunning view, privacy and and peace. No one and nothing will bother you in this unit. Great for whale and whale shark spotting!

Casa Lula (Squid) - 4 Sleeper

Closer to the sea than Baleia, private and an awesome view. What more do you want?

It is important to note that we are in the process of converting to solar power - our generator has been disabled and therefore no longer kicks in when the EDM Grid goes down (as it can do regularly, just like Eskom!) - you are therefore advised to bring sufficient torches/batteries for when it does so at night. We provide a solar, movement sensitive light on each balcony, so you will never be completely in the dark. Also, be sure to charge your devices when the power is flowing!! All Casas are equipped with the following:

  • Fridge (120/180 litre)
  • Freezer (200 litre) - 8 sleepers only
  • Hot & cold water (wood fired Donkey)
  • 2 x bathrooms in 4 bedroom casas (with shower, basin, toilet)
  • 1 x bathroom in 2 bedroom casas (with shower, basin, toilet)

  • Solar powered balcony light
  • full function Gas cooker - 4 burner and oven

  • all cutlery, crockery, glassware and kitchenware needed to fully self-cater. Even a potjie.
  • Kettle (Gas)
  • Mosquito netting
  • Private braai facilities
  • Own towels required!

Getting Here

A 4x4 vehicle is a definite advantage, though you can get a 2WD car to the lodge, the roads around us are all made of beach sand, so your car will be parked for the duration of your stay, and there will be at significant quantity of walking involved!

These are establishments that can cater and accommodate for large groups of 8 people and up in the same house / unit offering most self catering facilities as if you are "home away from home".

Guest House:

Similar to a typical B&B, a Guest House is usually a private house offering very few accommodation units all within the main building structure (or some seperately). Some serve home cooked meals within their in-house dining room specially catered to seat all their guests and offer a lounge area where fellow travellers can interact, socialize and share stories.

This type of accommodation is usually ideal for large groups of people going on holiday being a "home away from home" with numerous bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen for your self catering needs, lounge, toilets, braai/BBQ area, some with a swimming pool and some offering exclusive privacy.

Honeymoon / Romantic Accommodation:

Very self-explanatory. A venue will be listed under this category if they offer a specific luxury, private honeymoon suite or because our admin has "hand-picked" the establishment to be perfect for such an occasion based on their location and facilities offered. However, you are the best judge when it comes to planning that special getaway with your loved one anyway. Pssst ... and it doesn't have to be expensive either to enjoy, right?!
