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.
