Ambre is the house and cottage nestling among trees and fynbos at the top of Bass Road, Bettys Bay, diagonally across from the Botanical Gardens. It is down from the main freeway and has an open green belt down to the blue sea & sky, with uninterrupted views of mountain & sea. With an extensive fynbos garden and ample parking space, the location is very secluded.

Ambre Cottage is a long open sitting room containing a dining table, 2 single beds & table, with stove, fridge & cooking facilities on the right. Very sheltered from the South Easterly, you will have your own little porch with umbrella. Totally private, with views of the green belt and the blue sea in all its changing moods. A large braai can be moved to this area on request.

At a fair distance from the main house, the cottage sits very private under a large filao tree. Behind you, across the freeway rises the Kogelberg Range. Between the cottage and main house is a large garden displaying a large wisteria and many proteas, pin-cushions, ericas & restios
Bass road meanders down to a large vlei called Malkops Vlei, which in turn has other paths down to the Bettys Bay main beach. Most invigorating for a good evening walk.

A path from the house leads down next to the Dawids Kraal River to a popular picnic spot and a good fishing beach, as well as the main beach. Down the river path and through the picnic spot brings you to this beach, which has the most delightful pools at low tide.
Across the freeway, 5 minutes walk, is the world famous HAROLD PORTER BOTANICAL Gardens. Here, the natural beauty in the heart of the coastal fynbos, has the richest flora - characterised with proteas, ericas, brunias, daisies, bulbous plants and reed-like restios. Enjoy breathtaking views from the nature trails up Disa Kloof named for its wild orchids, and Luiperd's Kloof with its magical cascades.

Guest Comments

My stay at Ambre cottage was lovely. Very cute place to just getaway from everything and enjoy the beauty of nature. The owner was very kind and gave us the privacy we wanted. Will definitely stay there again.:)
- Caitlin Van Der Schyff31 Jan 2018

Stunning setting. Friendly and helpful owner. Pots and pans corroded and crockery cupboards very dirty. Owners car parked right in front of cottage main entrance door for duration of stay. No shade in garden/ braai area. Sheet not fitted and too small kept on slipping off leaving us to lie on exposed mattress. Overall the stay was reasonable but above points need to be addressed if we are to consider staying there again.
