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.
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.
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.
At only R950 per night* for the house (for up to four people), you can’t get much closer to the beach anywhere in Hermanus. The minimum booking duration is two nights.
During High Season (10 Dec to 14 January) the rate is R1 500 per night, for a minimum of 5 nights.
Upstairs is a double bed. Downstairs, in the open-plan living area, is a single bed in a sleeping alcove (shown in the photos), and a sleeper couch, which is suitable for a child.
The kitchen is equipped with a 271-litre fridge, a two-zone induction stove, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, coffee plungers, and ample cutlery, crockery and glassware.
Bath towels and linen are provided. Please bring your own beach towels.
Firewood for your first braai (on the portable patio braai) will be supplied.
