The cottage has had a recent makeover with some great additions, including a new front deck.
The beach is just a 2 minute stroll away, with beautiful and safe places to swim. Collect shells on the beach, go fishing off the rocks, enjoy a lovely walk, or just 'chill' in the sun.
The Xora river is just below the river/sunset facing deck and a wooden staircase takes you right down to the jetty.
The cottage has four bedrooms:
- Sea view 1: One double bed
- Sea view 2: One double bed, a double bunk, and a single bed (small lock up safe)
- River view 1: One double bed
- River view 2: One single bed
All bedding and essentials are provided, including bar fridge, kitchen fridge, chest freezer, gas stove, ice machine, kettle and microwave oven, kitchen utensils such as cups, glassware, pots & pans, etc. etc..
Separate bathroom with flush toilet and separate shower with hot water gas geyser. (Gas is included in the rate and is connected up by the house staff when required.)
There are two lounges, a dining room, and large kitchen.
The river facing deck is the main entertainment area with amazing sunset views, built-in braai area, and has a stairway access down to the jetty on the river.
Facilities include a dart board (please bring your own darts ), and two 2-man kayaks for guests use to experience the wonderful Xora River.
Thelma and Nancy do the house cleaning and will happily make fat cakes (vetkoek) and home made Xhosa bread for you. Please bring your own flour and yeast, etc.. They can also arrange crayfish, fish and mussels as appropriate during season (sea and weather conditions permitting). Thelma and Nancy have both worked at the cottage for over 40 years and are super helpful and completely trustworthy. Tyson is Nancy's son and is available to help with any manual chores that are needed.
As this is their only form of employment we do ask that our guests please treat them well, as they are part of our happy family cottage.
Tyson is able to assist with the key for the boom gate to access the launching-site for boats at the river.
Xora mouth is unique. To say the least.
Come and sea.
