This old fisherman's cottage is right in the heart of Kalkbay ~ 5 minutes’ walk from the ocean, Dalebrook tidal pool, the mountain, an active fishing harbour, lots of restaurants, cafes, bars & the best bakery in town. The local village park on our doorstep provides your kids with hours of fun while you chill on the balcony with a glass of wine or read a book in the shade of the trees. You can't beat the location of this cottage nor the old fashioned simplicity of the lifestyle that it offers.
The cottage is small and old but the home contains all the essential appliances such as a microwave, fridge, freezer and very large stove with a gas hob, washing machine, dryer and TV, DVD player with a small collection of children’s DVD’s. There are lots of books, puzzles and board games, a few boogie boards, fishing nets and beach bats. There are two working spaces if you have any inclination to work!
The home comprises two small adjoined cottages. The lower cottage has a fabulous and very private courtyard with a perfect reading bench and a Weber braai / barabecue. An open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room with a fire place is the central focus of the lower cottage. The small but quiet main bedroom with plenty of cupboard space and an en-suite bathroom and shower is accessed off the open plan living space. In the top cottage you will find a bedroom with two single beds that’s perfect for children and a toilet with another shower and living area which contains a small double sleeper coach for additional guests and the TV for late night movie watching. This living area opens out onto a balcony with views of the ocean.
Both the showers are outside but have hot water and are ideal for washing down salty and sandy bodies and wetsuits. Note: There are water restrictions in Cape Town but short showers are fine.

I'm a professional in the domain of urban planning who is passionate about cities and committed to addressing some of the pressing issues common to South African cities in particular. I count my self very fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth where the city collides with a wild mountain and sea. I love the wilderness and mountains for the perspective that they offer one on life and its complexities. Besides my two young children and wonderful husband I get energy from friends, other cultures and when time allows, travel.
