Our Cottages

Our thatch-roofed cottages were designed in the Cape vernacular style. Their light and airy living areas are created by high exposed ceilings and quarry-tile floors. Some cottages have balconies with panoramic views of the ocean and the unspoiled coastline. The cottages are serviced daily, allowing you to live the relaxed lifestyle of Arniston.

For those cosy winter days, we have open log indoor fireplaces and electric blankets. Bedding, towels and soap are provided. We also have outdoor undercover barbecue areas (you can purchase firewood from our offices). The cottages are fully equipped and we also offer guest-house bouquet DStv. There is ample free parking.

We can accommodate groups of any size, from a honeymoon couple to a party of 80, and children of all ages are welcome. You may also bring your pets, by arrangement.


  • Bedding, towels and soap provided
  • Television with guest-house bouquet DStv
  • Indoor open log fireplaces
