Cosy Fishermans cottage - sleeps 6 - only 150m from the sea. Just outside Hermanus. Ideal family getaway - only 1h15 from Cape Town by car.

The space

The furniture is a mix of old and new, with an emphasis on wooden elements. The decor has an earthy, beachy feel - it is supposed to be a relaxed space after all! The cottage is right next to a green belt, making it very private.

It is ideal for weekend breakaways and family holidays by the sea. Big Entertainment and Braai area at the back of the house

All cooking facilities including an oven and stove as well as fridge freezer is provided.

Guest access

You have access to the whole bottom level house.

At the back of the house there is a very spacious entertainment / braai area which can also be used as a safe, closed in playing area for small kids.

Interaction with guests

We will not be around during your stay, but please contact us via the telephone numbers provided in the quick guide that can be found on the fridge.

Other things to note

Our fulltime Malawian houseboy / property manager lives on the top floor that is totally closed off from the bottom floor that you will be staying in.

Roman can assist you with cleaning at a small fee that can be arranged with him directly. His telephone number is on the quick guide on the fridge.

Cosy fisherman’s cottage - just like in the description. We had a great time - wish we could have spend more time there. Walking distance to the sea - short drive to Hermanus. Stefan was very helpful and sorted out immediately when we had a problem with the stove. Thanks!

Response from Stefan:
So glad you loved it! I will definitely take up the suggestion to add a French Coffee Press or Italian Stove top Expresso maker to the kitchen! Thanks so much for the constructive feedback!

We had the most fantastic stay at Stefan's Cosy Fisherman's Cottage!!! Stefan is a great and friendly host and his house is immaculately kept, and very welcoming. With Stefan's place sleeping up to 6 guests, my friends and I found this gem of a spot in Vermont. It has the most amazing braai area for entertaining, its within walking distance to the beach which is perfect for those summer sunrise or sunset strolls, and with all the amazing things to do in Vermont such as Horse riding, shark cage diving, stand up paddle boarding and so much more there is something for everyone. I would truly recommend you to stay at this cosy cottage. It is our new hidden gem which we will be visiting frequently.
