Good linen, fluffy towels + loads of caring extras included in the rate, all combine to create a stay in a class of its own. There’s only one Africa Cottage Strand. If what you see appeals to you, book it - before someone else snatches the dates you have in mind. We are new on Tripadvisor. Here are some comments from our guest book: ‘Absolutely wonderful. Facilities new and beautiful. Secure parking and everything one needs, is here. Will most definitely stay here again and recommend it highly. Bottled water, rusks and milk in fridge a bonus.’ (Christo S, 25 Sept 2017). ‘We enjoyed our stay sooo much! The cottage is beautiful. Your attention to detail is awesome! Milk and bottled water in fridge, coffee, tea, rusks and even salt, pepper and spices. Great bed with warm blankets and a heater. Such a peaceful, quiet place. We felt so welcome and will definitely be back. Thanks so much.’ (Dale & Divan vdM, 15-17 July 2017). ‘Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay. I could not have asked for a better experience. Immediately felt welcomed by Douwleen and her family. I was nervous about spending so much time in another country as a new mom, but my stay here made that transition much easier. We’ll think fondly of our days at the African Cottage. It was a lovely home away from home. Blessings and thanks.’ (Karen J, 25 Aug- 14 Sept 2017). ‘Africa Cottage is pretty, comfortable, cozy and ideal for two people wanting to have a nice breakaway. We loved our evening in your beautiful place. Thank you for accommodating us. We’d love to come again.’ (Simone & Darrin A , 16 Sept 2017). ‘We loved our stay here!! The cottage is great, we like the art and decor with African touches. Very well situated. We were so well received, Douwleen is such a friendly host. All blessings and good times in Strand!’ (Hennie C and family, 18 Sept 2017). ‘Thank you for having us, the cottage is beautiful, I love the decor. The setting is perfect for peace and quiet.’ (Kim L & family, 23-24 Sept 2017). More

About the neighbourhood
Conveniently situated in a quiet, well established neighborhood. Yes, you will sleep well :-). A 10 minute walk from the ocean and Strand food stores, other shops and restaurants. A Caltex fill up station, 2 cafes and Rooibos Restaurant serving excellent bar meals, pizzas and burgers, are just around the corner (300 meters). For more specialized shopping and cinemas, the Somerset Mall is a 6 min drive away. Clarence Drive: Africa Cottage Strand is only 7 km from the start of world famous Clarence Drive, the breathtaking scenic coastal route between the village towns of Gordon's Bay and Kleinmond. If you have your own transport, do not miss doing this route - it has been voted the most beautiful scenic drive in the world more than once.

Own or hired car recommended, otherwise uber or strand taxis.
