About Die Rotse Self-catering Accommodation

Die Rotse Self-catering Accommodation is located on Beach Road, Kleinmond, in the Western Cape. Kleinmond, approximately one hour and 15 minutes' scenic drive from Cape Town International Airport, is situated on the western side of Sandown Bay between the Kogelberg mountain range and the rich Benguela sea current of the Atlantic Ocean.

The seafront property is located on a peaceful cul-de-sac bordering the Nature Reserve. A 40-metre stroll leads to a natural tidal swimming pool and large inter-coastal tidal zone for hours of exploring in the unique eco-system of the kelp forest. Follow the coastal path from here to Kleinmond's Blue Flag beach only 300 metres away.

The main residence of your hosts, Werner and Lorraine Pauw, is a historic building with Landmark Status, built in early 1910 and totally restored under the guidance of the Overstrand Aesthetics Committee and is known as Die Rotse. In line with the look and feel of Die Rotse there are two fully-equipped, three-bedroom apartments, known as Spykerklip and Drievis, making up the rest of the complex.

Beach: 40 meters from tidal swimming pools where you can collect own seafood, subject to permit conditions. Snorkel diving in the kelp forest and inter-tidal zone, might just yield West Coast Lobsters and other seafood.

Family friendly: Large lawns & playground with sand pit and swings for kids. BBQ areas under old Fig Tree. Fully fenced and secure premises with CCTv cameras

          We loved never having to get in the car. We had 4 little children and could walk to the rock pools, the beach, the lagoon and the playground. In addition, the house has a safely fenced garden at the back with a large lawn for happy family games.

          The two units make for a great family holiday. Was very nice to be close to the beach so we could walk there. one thing that perhaps could be added is an outside shower so that sand doesn't get walked into the house.

          Thank you - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past weekend. Perfect setting - for couples and friends, or whole family

          We really loved Die Rotse. Amazing out of this world views, right on beach. Extremely comfortable accomodation with everything you need and more. Amazing hosts with lots of advice on things to do in the area. We loved our stay here. It was first class!

          Die Rotse was 'n fantastiese plek vir ons gesin om te bly.  Die huis is ten volle toegerus met alles wat jou hart begeer.  Die uitsig is pragtig.  Werner se diens is onverbeterlik.  Ons sal graag weer by die Rotse wil bly en sal dit aanbeveel vir enige iemand.Do not hesitate about this accommodation.  It is superb!
