Seaside Self Catering Cottage by the beach and river....Jenny's super-relaxed seaside home with its cosy open plan self catering cottage with fireplace is situated in lawny enclaves that lead to narrow paths, one over the low dune to the main beach with its fine white sand and the other via marsh reeds to the "brandy wine" river which has its own sheltered silvery sanded beach.
Enjoy this slice of unspoiled nature and watch baboons troop by, or maybe even catch a glimpse of the shy otters playing in the river. For bird lovers there are both estuarine and fynbos birds to identify. Sink onto the recliner outdoors in Readers' Corner with a good book, from where there are also magnificent views over the reed edged river estuary to the dramatic mountains to the north.
You may see whales from the deck - particularly during July, August and early September. In the evenings there are spectacular sunsets to be enjoyed looking over False Bay and viewing the whole of the Cape Peninsula from Cape Point to Table Mountain whilst sipping sundowners on the deck or perched on the sand dune bordering the main beach.
The Barnacle has also been hand picked by the Greenwood Guides accomodation guide.
