Basic self-catering cottage for up to 6 adults next to Benguela. Prices vary according to how many adults and children are in your group. I usually quote less than this rate if fewer than 5 people. There is a very basic fireplace in front of the cottage. It is close to the beach, has a bathroom, galley kitchen, bedroom with double bed, and 4 single beds in the living area.

Guest Comments

The surf shack is essentially for backpackers, if you keep that in mind you will enjoy your stay. Its clean but can do with some work. It could also do with some extras like dish washing liquid, dish cloth, plates instead of just bowls :-). Loved the outside shower. All in all we had a pleasant stay.
