Your dream getaway starts here

Sandy feet welcome

Just 700 metres from Grotto Blueflag Beach, and a pebble’s throw from popular Voëlklip and Nannies’ Beaches, Bird Rock Cottage welcomes you into its easy-going lifestyle. It’s a small, recently built double-storey house. Open-plan living makes for a relaxed indoor-outdoor flow, and the sheltered garden is a lush, tranquil retreat from the brightness of the beach.

Comfort in laid-back style

The bedroom spans the entire top floor. The picture windows in two walls offer views of waves breaking at Grotto and Voëlklip beaches, and as far as Hermanus’ old fishing harbour. You’ll also have views of the mountain close by.

More than a room to retire to at night, this large, airy space is often the preferred living area – perfect for couples or two-child families. (The house can accommodate a maximum of four guests.)

Free wi-fi is available. A comfortable counter-high desk makes the perfect workstation overlooking the bay.

Close to the beach, top Hermanus restaurants and other attractions

Situated in a quiet residential area of Voëlklip (meaning Bird Rock), the small double-storey house is tucked away from the street. You’ll be within walking distance of the neighbourhood supermarket, close to fine restaurants and just up the road from the beach and lagune, popular for a variety of water sports including kiteboarding.
