The space

BETTYS BAY - very pretty and charming coastal cottage overlooking lake, natural beauty and laid-back living. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, shower, open plan living area with double doors leading onto covered stoeps/verandahs front and rear, wonderful views of lake and mountains. 10-15 mins walk along fynbos fringed gravel roads to pristine beaches. Indigenous garden, porcupines, mongooses, dyker bucks (bambi!) and all sorts of birds live here, not to mention hoards of singing frogs! No mosquitoes! Safe swimming, surfing, kite boarding, hiking, sand boarding, river pools, mountain biking, world heritage nature reserve, amazing botanical gardens, penguin colony, village shops, a post office and petrol station - a couple of good fish restaurants and even a decent pizzeria!
Gravel roads, lots of bush, no street lights - the stars are amazing! Even the scientists at NASA are impressed by the night skies here!! Big skies, wonderful cloud formations and sunsets. 85 kms from Cape town, just over an hours drive along the N2 and Clarence Drive, one of the most beautiful classic mountain sea/mountain roads in the world. Its a stunning unknown and untouched spot away from it all. A wilderness area. Perfect for holidays or as a writing, painting and creative retreat.

We had great weather and a very relaxing stay in Betty’s Bay. Thanks to Wells’ hospitality and wealth of local information we got to experience the best the area had to offer. Thanks to the beautifully appointed cottage it was very easy to unwind and recharge our batteries. It is beautifully decorated, very clean and exactly as advertised. The Betty’s bay location is perfectly situated as a base to explore the surrounding areas with options ranging from experiencing the hustle and bustle of Cape Town, the total isolation of the Kogelberg mountain range or just a leisurely walk along the beach at sunset. There is something for everyone in this beautiful part of our country. Thank you Wells for being such a fantastic host and making our holiday so memorable!

What a delightful home! Charmingly decorated, clean and comfortable, it was situated right next to the little lake and still within earshot of the breaking waves. Exactly as advertised. It had just the right mixture of wild and woolly, and laid back sophistication to ensure that we had glorious bare-footed weekend days and cosy woodfire evenings in.
