Strandlopertjies is a 6 sleeper stone cottage at the Mouth of the Breede River on the exclusive south bank of the river mouth. It is a modern, cosy cottage with an artistic ambiance. This place is a paradise for fishing (a meal of fresh fish per day is almost guaranteed) fly-fishing, kayaking (kayak available) wake-boarding, sailing, kite-surfing (rated as one of the 10 best kite-surfing spots in the world) and windsurfing. Infanta Bay (3 km away) is ideal for whale watching during the winter months (June to October). Walk along the cliffs at Infanta and watch them from above at a close distance.

Come and enjoy the quiet, sunny days of winter, or the sun drenched days of summer, ideal for all outdoor activities. Appreciate the peace and quiet, the beautiful unspoilt nature, breathtaking views and sounds of birds and water. Safe, shallow swimming for children.

Sit on the patio at sunset and see the blue cranes (South Africa's national bird) flying in to settle down on the prawn beds for the night. Have a braai at sunset under the old milkwood trees and see the water turns silver in the last rays of the sun. This is the nearest one would get to heaven on earth.

Guest Comments

Lovely place. Only negative was the state of the cookware. A minor detail overall. Will go back there again. Service rated at 5 due to having to remove one's rubbish and having to bring own sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers. Also a minor issue overall. Fantastic time had by all.

A long and tedious drive to the cottage but well worth it. Great location for a tranquil breakaway. Very basic but comfortable.

Knowledge about the water shortage (the fact that rainwater is used) should have been communicated prior to booking. Also, it would have been great to know that there are no facilities in the area before booking the place. The promised canoe was also not available so that should be taken off the website as it wasn't available. I didn't believe that it was worth the R900 per night. Other than that, if you are looking for a very quiet, peaceful holiday this is the place to be.

Great little cottage to spend a couple of days of peace and quiet away from city life
Will most definitely go back
