Cottage
A newly renovated, luxuriously appointed studio/cottage in the garden of a heritage listed home in the heritage village of Stanford. Named after the 100 year plus old Rhus tree in the garden, the cottage is right on the salt water lap pool, has its own private entrance and is 500m from the village centre where shops, a supermarket and bottle store, a bakery, a pub and various restaurants are located. A further 500m brings one to the banks of the Klein River where canoe hire and river cruises are available. Stanford is 20 minutes drive to either Hermanus(for whale watching) or Gansbaai(for shark cage diving) and is therefore ideally situated for either of those activities as well as being in the heart of the Stanford Wine belt with numerous wineries and eateries nearby.

Located in the 'Olde' area of the village, the cottage is quiet, has all the mod-cons and an amazing selection of local birdlife drawn to the tree and garden. A vacation in Stanford can be a lazy, restfull and healthy experience or, an action packed, highly active adventure. The choice is yours! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 9410591037More

Can highly recommend to stay at Rhus Cottage. Beautiful cottage situated in an oasis in Stanford. Fantastic garden, wonderful veranda outside the cottage with adjacent pool. The host couple Sally & Andy was a delight to met. Very helpful and knowledgeable about the many activities that goes on in Stanford and the surrounding area. The whole area around Stanford in Eastern Cape is a must to experience. it is on top of our bucket list to go back there.

Amazing space, gorgeous garden, fantastic atmosphere. The cottage is super spacious with all the essentials one would need. Gorgeous finishing touches and attention to detail. Garden is amazing with the sunset over the mountains in the distance. You could even have a warm shower outside after a good swim. Stanford is a wonderful, soulful little village. Highly recommend a visit to Rhus Cottage.

About the neighbourhood
The main features of the area are the Klein Rivier and Kleinriviersberg mountain range, the river running right through the village, is perfect for canoeing(for the more adventurous) or an early morning or sunset champagne cruise on one of the number of dedicated river boats. The surrounding mountains have some easy and not so easy hiking trails, there is 4x4 access to Die Plaat which is a popular fishing destination and is the beach which runs from Hermanus's Grotto Beach all the way to Gansbaai. Stanford is a heritage listed, quaint and quiet village with numerous wine farms and therefore wine tasting opportunities right on the doorstep.
Getting around
The brand new R43 road between Hermanus and Stanford is an absolute pleasure and has cut the travel time to about 10 minutes so all the art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and retail outlets are an easy trip away. There is a shuttle service to both Hermanus and Gansbaai but no taxis in Stanford. There are both bicycles and canoes for hire from 'Soft Creations' on Queen Victoria Street, Stanfords main road.
