Arniston House

Sea Cottage,  Arniston

Welcome to Sea Cottage in Arniston, our much loved family holiday home for the past 35 years.

We are located at 7 Syndicate Street , which is the road directly behind the hotel. It is within walking distance of the beach (150m) and the slipway/harbour.

Arniston is a comfortable two hour drive from Cape Town on the N2, turning off at Caledon and following the R316 through Napier and Bredasdorp and on to Arniston some 22 km from Bredasdorp. The R316 takes one through the farming district and wonderful countryside of the Overberg area before arriving at one of the most beautiful old fishing villages in the country, and not far from the southernmost tip of Africa.

Arniston is well known for its turquoise-coloured sea , its beaches and fantastic swimming conditions , the Waenhuiskrans cave, lovely walks and the village of Kassiesbaai.

Our house is filled with light and has wonderful living spaces. Upstairs is a family room and balcony with sea views. Downstairs is an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area that leads onto a large patio and braai area.
