Oudtshoorn, Western Cape
Owl's Den are two fully functional self catering log cabins on my premises. Both are surrounded by trees and a lush garden. We are situated in Oudtshoorn and only 5 minutes drive or walk from town as well as restaurants, shops and garages.

The little cabins are private and each have a little deck and barbeque facility. It is rustic but homely with all the requirements for a holiday away from home! Parking is under roof behind a remote access gate. Each occupant receives his/her own remote for the duration of the stay.

I provide a welcome basket (local wine / biscuits and sweets) as well as linen, towels, toilet paper, small toiletries and coffee, tea, sugar and rusks for a start.

Elmarie and Ari were the most welcoming hosts, as was their cadre of cats and their lovely dog Willis. Secure parking, spotlessly clean and all the amenities of a self catering cottage available. Comfy bed and sofa, plenty of cooking area and kitchen space, amazing succulent garden and quiet space inside the property. No shower but large tub, hot water...

Management response:

Thank you Melinda, I am so glad you liked the cottage. Hope to see you again. Elmarie

One of our best stays in south Africa was at Elmaries and Arries place. Very cute cottage with the love to detail in a beautiful garden. We were very happy to use the Braai for which we got wood from Arrie. Very nice. And price/value couldn't be better. Thanks very much again to both of you.

Management response:

Thank you so much. It was very special having guests from Berlin! So glad you enjoyed our beautiful country and especially our little cabins! Regards Owl's Den

We were warmly welcomed by Elmarie who showed us around these two amazing garden cabins. They are cosy and warm with a tasteful decor and a homely feel- perfect for a short stay! We thoroughly enjoyed the self-catering facilities, especially the BBQ. Elmarie is a perfect hostess, who was helpful with planning our trip and even gave us a bottle...
