Getaway Summary
PRICE (pp sharing):
from R 220 - 225
PRICE (unit):
from R 1,100 - 1,100
Relax in one of two hand-built cottages equipped to a high standard and located in the grounds of Driftwood Sculpture Studios, facing the Kwelera Coastal Nature Reserve, with the secluded beach just a short walk away. Children have the whole grounds to explore, vervet monkeys to imitate, chickens they can feed, and the chance to make friends with two other resident monkeys, Angus and Anna. Regret no dogs due to there being no fences between the property and the Kwelera Nature Reserve.

Driftwood Cottage is a unique thatched tree house furnished with a queen-size bed and a single bed made up if required. For family sleep over fun we can add two comfy fold down beds for children. The unit features a bath and toilet upstairs, as well as a deck off the first floor bedroom in the trees. Enjoy a shower amid the tall flowering ginger. Guests are free to self-cater in the fully-equipped kitchen/diner downstairs, outside in the leafy courtyard, or enjoy star gazing from the adjacent braai area or the covered braai by the kitchen.

Raku Cottage, or The Forest House has two shower en-suite double rooms, Raku and Strandloper. Raku also has a single bed. There is also a single day bed in the lounge. There is a lounge/diner/kitchen with a wood burning fireplace, concrete worktops and a gas hob/electric oven. A private cottage tucked away in the indigenous forest, a short walk on a paved path from the off-street parking.

Staying at Driftwood Studios will be a delight for birdwatchers, anglers, and surfers, safe and fun for children, and ideal for an artists or writers retreat. The beach is part of the Standloper Trail and has rock pools, shells, and of course driftwood.

Private parking areas and paths lead to each cottage. Claire will be on hand to help you make your stay a memorable and enjoyable one.

"We had a Pamper party for my niece and friends over the weekend, I must say it was a perfect getaway place to have such. The tranquillity, warmth of the hosts and the surroundings all added to the success of the weekend. The place is clean, safe and refreshing. Thank you very much for everything including the breakfast prepared on the fire."

"Die Unterkunft Driftwood Studios befindet sich am Anfang der Wild Coast, fernab der Touristenstrme. Wer eine luxurise Bleibe sucht, sollte eher woanders buchen. Wer sich aber fr Kunst und Kreativitt begeistern kann, gerne mitten in einem paradiesischen Garten mit Hund, Katze, Hhnern (alle sehr freundlich) wohnen mchte und unglaublich gastfreundliche Vermieter (mit zwei Kindern) zu schtzen wei, die auch gerne die beeindruckende Kunstgalerie zeigen, ist hier goldrichtig! Zum Naturstrand, der zwar nicht zum Baden geeignet ist, aber manche Schtze finden lsst, sind es nur einige Minuten zu Fu. Dafr gibt es quasi um die Ecke wunderschne Sandstrnde, z.B. in Glengarriff. Wir wohnten zu viert im Raku-Cottage, manchmal kamen vervet Monkeys ( Meerkatzen) zu Besuch :-) Ca 10 min entfernt gibt es einen vllig ausreichenden Spar-Markt, eine Tankstelle etc. Wir haben schweren Herzens Abschied genommen und wrden jederzeit gerne wiederkommen!Dear Claire and George, Anna and Angus!Thank you again so much for your warm welcome and the exceptional time we could spend at your home. We'll never forget it and we hope to meet you again one time! Christine, Bernhard, Philipp & Amelie"

"Hosts were great, and very hospitable. A lovely nature escape, easy drive from EL. The coastline is rocky, but good for walks. Raku cottage is tucked under trees, shady and sheltered from wind, but not much of an outlook/view."
"Lovely venue"

"Really enjoyed interacting with the hosts. Suggest the installation of some solar lights along path to cottage. Was difficult to navigate from car park area to cottage."
