The Square Elephant: Nature. Silence. Solitude. Peace. Ocean views. Champagne air. Unique state-of-art off-grid luxury converted shipping container on a mountainside near Hermanus with stunning 360-degree views over ocean, lagoon, mountains, fynbos, fields and forests. Elegantly-finished “tiny home” offers 2 bedrooms: one with double bed and other with two bunk beds (designed for adults). Gas BBQ. Hot tub. Huge deck. Sunsets. Free wi-fi. Dog-friendly environment for off-leash walks.
Why the name “The Square Elephant”? Because this uniquely converted shipping container is the same gray colour as an elephant and, like the amazing elephant, it blends seamlessly into its bush environment. You will feel totally secluded and remote, but, in reality, you're still conveniently close to all tourist amenities. Most guests simply settle in and unwind in the blissful solitude, relax on the recliners with a good book, go for long walks and of course, dream away in the hot tub with glorious, beautiful nature surrounding you in all directions. Then you wish you had booked for another week. Departing is tough... we know. SALE UPDATE: This amazing 250HA Private Mountain Nature Reserve is for sale. This property the owner's lodge and development rights for tourism. Ideal also for corporate retreat / exclusive private gated community for a consortium, family or investor’s group. Owner retiring after 20 wonderful years of exclusive ownership. Contact us through Facebook or Airbnb.

  • We enjoyed our stay here at this charming cabin with a lovely private outdoor area for kids to play outside. The braai area was great. We had a fantastic time in the area going on a whale watching trip and walking on an exquisite beach where the lagoon met the sea. the spring flowers were looking so pretty. It was too cold for us to swim but there is a great pool facility and jungle gym area for the children.

It really is the best of both worlds.
    Each unit is tastefully decorated with the hues and warmth of the indigenous flora (fynbos & proteas) and is equipped for self catering. The units are large and spacious and the front porch has its own dining area and braai (bbq) to enjoy the outdoors.
    Kleinmond is filled with historic tradition, beautiful landscapes and various outdoor activities. Whether you want to play golf, enjoy nature or go on a wine tour, this is a holiday destination you won't forget.

  • Caroline and Bill's place is comfortable and their hospitality is fantastic. This is a lovely place to get away for a few days and just unwind even with kids. Close to main towns as well. Definitely worth visiting.

    Jehiel2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal for families (with small kids) and couples ( 2 beds in main bedroom, one in the lounge), no TV in the unit but in a separate BBQ area. Pets on the property but very friendly. Due to how the alarm is setup, you need to let the owners know what time to expect you (roughly) so that they can turn it off to let you in, some people may feel restricted due to this. Lovely recommendations for things to do in the surrounding area can be found in the unit. Whale Coast Mall about 10-15 minute drive away should you need anything.

    Candice2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Easy stop over if you are travelling between Cape town and Western Cape!

    Lee2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay at Caroline and Neil! Probably the most authentic we have them. Their meeting was very enriching in our learning of this country.

    Wisaal2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Kolie and Natasha are great hosts! Old school friendliness and keen to help out. I forgot braai spice for our meat and asked them where the closest shop was, next thing we knew, there was salt, pepper and braai spice from their kitchen! Woke up early to go kayaking and we were met with the wild horses chewing on some lawn. Interesting little town, lots to do for the adventure seeker and water sports lover. Close to all the popular spots, but without the busy traffic and crowded beaches.

  • This is a place I would love to frequent. It is safe and quiet and Barbara and Winston are so amazing and nice to chat to!

  • Barbara and Winston are absolutely amazing hosts. They are extremely kind and have shown us wonderful hospitality. Definitely a home away from home for us and our children. Cute cottage with everything that you need.

    Phindile2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Winston and Barbara have thought of everything to make this place clean, comfortable and welcoming. Muesli, fresh flowers, snacks, a guidebook with some personal and local history about the nearby surroundings, and a lovely garden in back -- all these are set to spoil each guest. They are gifted at hospitality -- happy to chat, or to just allow you the space you need. Speaking of space, you can drive your car into its own gate, and be closer to your door. We highly recommend Winston and Barbara's place and hope to return on a future visit.

    Situated in the Middlevlei holiday resort, 125 Visarend is ideally located to explore the Overberg. It is a mere 20 km from bustling Hermanus and only an hour’s drive from Cape Town. 125 Visarend is a three level log cabin on stilts, with 3 bedrooms on the top floor offering treetop views.
    The cabin is well suited to guests looking for tranquil weekend away rather than a party spot. One room is furnished with a double bed and the second with two single beds – both rooms have large sliding doors which open onto a balcony deck. The third bedroom offers two single bunk beds. The bedrooms share the use of 2 bathrooms, each have a shower, basin and toilet. The upstairs bathroom shower features a tub-base which can also be used as a bath for children. The open-plan kitchen is equipped with a two-plate stove, a microwave oven as well as a large fridge-freezer. Guests can get cosy in the lounge, enjoy their meals inside in the dining area or braai on the wrap around deck enjoying nature. The house is located directly across the footpath leading to the lagoon where guests can fish, sail, and enjoy a variety of water activities. The beach and the Bot River lagoon mouth is within walking distance as well. Guests can also bring their bicycles and cycle along scenic routes. The resort offers a variety of recreational facilities. The cabin is fitted with an alarm system, the resort has 24 hour access control and ample, safe shade parking is available on the ground level underneath the house. The first floor is also level with the top road behind the house and can be entered without climbing stairs.
    Situated in a Milkwood forest Meerenbosch is a quiet and serene resort perfect for a relaxing holiday. The area boasts spectacular sunsets and abundant wetlands birdlife, with pelicans and flamingos being a common sight. Legendary wild horses also roam free around the lagoon. Across the lagoon is the Rooisand Nature Reserve and the conservancy surrounding the Bot River lagoon forms part of the UNESCO recognised Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve and marine protected area. The resort is situated next to the mouth of the Bot River lagoon (100m walking distance from our cabin) and is thus perfect for kayaking, kitesurfing, stand-up paddling or fishing. With ample gravel roads and almost no traffic in the resort, it’s also a good idea to bring your bicycle for some cycling along scenic routes! Nearby Kleinmond and Hermanus are bustling coastal towns with many shops, restaurants and offers many tourist activities. Hermanus is home to the annual Whale Festival with Southern Right whales, Bryde’s and Humpback whales visiting the area and Gansbaai is the ultimate spot for Great White Shark cage diving. The Overberg is home to many Wine Estates, several Nature Reserves, as well as the Harold Porter National Botanical Garden and Stony Point Penguin Colony at Betty's Bay.

    Carolina2019-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place! We had a wonderful stay at Rondawel 3. It is very well equipped and comfortable but the real star is the location. You can hear the sound of the sea and get a beautiful view on the estuary and the ocean beyond from the braai area. The beach is beautiful and only a short walk away! We really hope to come back.

    Ulrike2019-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic hidden place ! The location by the lagoon is ideal for long walks, and the braai area for dinner with friends. The house is nicely maintained, beddings comfortable and kitchen fully equipped providing a homy feeling. Anthony is extremely reactive and the staff members into the complex polite and friendly. Will definitely visit again !

    Laurianne2019-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Rondavel has everything you need. Set in a quiet estate right on the lagoon and a stones throw from the beach. You can listen to the sea. Great big swimming pool on the estate. Just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Hermanus.

    Tara2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Anthony's place is located in the beautiful Middlevlei nature reserve. It is right on the vlei and has an amazing view of the beach. The rondavel is spacious and comfortable. It is also quite and private. We had a lovely relaxing time. Highly recommended.

    Vanessa2019-01-01T00:00:00Z

    Gillroy2018-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place! Such a beautiful setting with easy access to Botrivier lagoon and the beach. Close enough to Hermanus but much quieter and more natural. We’d actually like to keep it a secret...

Many water sports can be done on the lagoon including waterski, powerboating, wakeboarding, kiteboarding, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing and fishing. A herd of wild horses roam free in Fisherhaven and in the nearby marshlands, next to the Rooisand Nature Reserve. They are believed to be South Africa's only herd of wild horses in a wetland habitat. The land on which Fisherhaven is situated was originally part of the Afdaksrivier farm which was first recorded in 1754. Before that the area of Middelvlei was first settled by the Khoisan people. During World War II, Royal Air Force (RAF) Squadron 262 established a diversion base at the lagoon and Catalina flying boats operated from here. Many water sports can be done on the lagoon including waterski, powerboating, wakeboarding, kiteboarding, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing and fishing.

    Robert2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I must say this place, the home, the hosts, the location was so much lovelier than I expected. I don't think the pictures do it justice. The home was immaculate with all the right touches. Comfy beds, lovely clean bathrooms, spacious family areas, incredible deck. The hosts, Marc and Chimene, were so nice and welcoming. I really can't say enough superlatives, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were a family of 3 adults and a toddler. Marc and Chimene put up a fence so that the toddler couldn't get to the pool unattended, supplied a box of toys and made our stay so awesome. The wild horses roaming the neighborhood was an extra special treat. But most of all the home itself was really really lovely! Would definitely stay again and again!!

    Wendy2019-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a real home from home. A really warm welcome. The house is comfortably furnished with all mod cons that allow for a lazy holiday with maid service available if required (at extra cost). There are terraces for lounging, a garden full of birds, views over the lagoon, and a pool to dip and play in. What more could you ask for.

    Andrew2018-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Our expectations were certainly exceeded. A relaxing, tranquil place far enough away from everything to wind down, but close enough to Hermanus and big malls should you prefer a little action. We especially enjoyed the layout of the house, the pool and the fantastic view over the lake and vineyards.

  • It was okay, but aircon, fans, or at least mosquito window screens would be much needed. The place was incredibly hot. Also, it's near the water but it's not a sandy beach and you cannot swim there.

    Emil2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • What a practical and cosy space! A place we would visit again. Only little issue was the double bed in main bedroom, which was too small for our comfort. Location is stunning.

    Rebecca2019-12-13T00:00:00Z

  • A very cozy and harmoniously furnished accommodation. We enjoyed spending the evenings on the balcony. We were able to park our car in the driveway. It is a short drive to the beach and shopping. We used the house for two. It is also very suitable for more people. Angela was an excellent host.

    Eva2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our family had the absolute best time staying at Angela's beautiful home - it is the perfect space to explore the Overberg region. After a busy day of swimming in lagoons, hiking or wine tasting we came back to the peaceful haven of Angela's home. The surrounding mountains and seascapes viewed through every upstairs window are breathtaking. She and her daughter are expert hosts, thinking of all the small and big things to make our stay feel welcoming and fun: from a lovely welcome note on the chalk board and chilled wine with fabulous cheese, fig preserve and biscuits to making sure the kids had lots of fun games and beach toys. Not many places welcome the whole family in such a wonderfully warm way - we left with hugs feeling we knew them! We will most certainly be back :)

    Tracey2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Angie and Yvette for going the extra mile to make us feel at home. The house is fully equipped with all amenities that ensured a comfortable and very relaxed stay. An extra thank you for the homemade rusks, lovely figs and welcome drinks - we really did not expect such heartwarming hospitality. We wish you all the best for the way forward.

    Elske2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Angela’s place in Kleinmond was everything we needed and could have hoped for to have a great time in Kleinmond! It’s an amazing space to just let your hair down and relax.

    Bring your book and suncream and come and relax in our simple beach rondavel next to the sea. Amenities include swimming pool, tennis courts, table tennis, lagoon and 10 kms of pearly white, pristine beach all to yourself! Come and escape the rat race and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean...
    Open, light and sunny, the whole rondavel is yours.
    Our rondavel is No.9 Meerensee. When driving, turn into Fisherhaven on your way to Hermanus, and then follow the signs to Flamingo Bay. Driving into the gate, straight past the tennis courts, swimming pool, table tennis center on the right; turn left into Meerensee; left at the t-junction and drive to the end of the road. There is a manual on top of the fridge. The water tap is under the deck (small cut-out with "water" written on it in pencil - not the cut-out with the broken handle underneath); turn the geyser and fridge on; put ice in the freezer for your G&Ts, and RELAX!! When you go please alarm and lock the door and leave the keys at the gate. Anna will come next week to clean and change bedding, turn off water, fridge etc. I ask if you can please wash up though to avoid encouraging bugs! Thank you for staying in our piece of magic! Kari
  • Very nice place to stay! Highly recommended to relax.

    Anna2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing view - lagoon, sand dunes, mountains and sea. Add to that wild horses, flamingo and loads of birds. If the lagoon is full, the sun is shining and youve stocked up on wine, i cant think of a better spot to chill. Its pretty small building tho, although bright and airy, but youll want to spend all you time outside anyway. Plenty of ganes for children too - spades, rugby, cricket etc. The only criticism is the grill is slow, but i had to scratch my head to think of something! Kari was helpful and easy going. Highly recommended for a short break to get away from it all.

    Chris2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a real good time at the Round House. It is the last one in the complex so it makes it even closer to wilderness. It's a well equipped little house and quite a unique experience. We recommend this for anyone who wants to relax and unwind. The kids slept upstairs and my wife and I were in the main bedroom downstairs. There are a few toys and all necessary for the bathroom. We enjoyed breakfast outside on the terrace with a wild horse just downhill from us. The beach and warm water of the lagoon is a short walking distance away. We even enjoyed taking an outside shower ! The 25mx25m pool is not far and my 7 year old was tall enough to stand all around! It was a great week-end and only 1h30 away from Cape Town. We will try to be back soon with the SUP paddle board as the lagoon is perfect for that.

    Alex2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place! One of the best equipped places I have ever stayed in despite its size. The outdoor space and views were incredible. We loved sitting and looking at birds on the lagoon. The peace and quiet were fantastic. Kari was a great host and responded to any queries straight away. Thanks so much

    Cabin 34 is a lovely wooden log cabin situated directly on the Botriver lagoon. It is within the Meerenbosch development of Middevlei nature reserve, which is +- 20km before Hermanus . The cabin is nestled between the Milkwood trees and has a stunning view of the lagoon and distant mountains. Wake up to the sounds of lapping water and surrounding bird life. It is a perfect romantic getaway for a couple or a relaxing retreat for a family who loves nature, water, tranquility and the outdoors.
    We are directly on the Botriver lagoon, and have our own private wooden staircase leading to the water's edge. We also have an paved area next to the cabin in between the milk wood trees and ideal for braaing, relaxing or socialising. It is private and peaceful.
    We are in an estate which is situated on the lagoon and surrounded by nature. An ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.
  • Most magnificent sunsets!! We had such an amazing stay that we ended up extending our stay! Beautiful surroundings! Candles all around the paved area under the milkwood trees made our nights around the Weber braai so tranquil and beautiful. Soul recharge to the max! Can't wait to go back!

  • Cabin 34 is a little gem of a place, nestled on the banks of the Botrivier Lagoon, in the heart of Flamingo Bay - a new family favourite! *Accomodation* This log cabin is neat, clean, and kitted out with everything you need; it goes above and beyond your usual self-catering expectations. Crisp white sheets, comfy beds, picture-perfect views, and tree-lined seclusion allows for a wonderful holiday making experience! *Amenities* Situated in a quiet resort with sparkling pools and tennis courts, the cabin has a balcony and a deck that offer up delightful views of the lagoon a stone-throw away, perfect for your morning tea and a good book, or afternoon braai, all while the flamingos dally in the water below. We enjoyed the deck right up into the late hours of the evening when the birdlife quieted, and the sky was full of stars. *Security* Safe and secure with CCTV cameras all round, as well as gate point security at the entrance of the resort. *Affordability* Well priced accommodation. *Recommendation* Warmly recommended for an intimate family retreat or romantic getaway. 5/5 Stars ☆☆☆☆☆

    Jessica2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Honey Rock cottages are beautiful restored farm worker buildings simply, elegantly decorated and thoughtfully equipped. Their location is magical, with a back-drop of the mountains of the Kogelberg Biosphere and the reassuring sound of the sea. The town of Kleinmond is a five minute drive away, as is the beach and access to public hiking trails on the mountains. The hosts and team are just lovely, warm and welcoming. We loved our three weeks there and will be back for sure. Hope you enjoy your time there as much as we did.

Thank you Sue for making our stay comfortable and memorable!

We were welcomed warmly and had everything we needed for a lovely relaxed stay with long, slow days, ending in comfy reading corners served by a bookshelf full of gems.

  • The farmhouse is even more stunning than on the pictures. Especially the living room is even more spacious than initially thought, the terrace at the back is just perfect to unwind and the surroundings are too beautiful! This is a real gem that's certainly worth visiting!!

    Colette2019-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely old farmhouse. Clean, cozy and relaxed with a fabulous kitchen which opens out onto a braai area. 20 min from Hermanus and closer to Kleinmond where you can enjoy beaches and some tourist shopping and restaurants. The only drawback for our family was that there is no swimming available for kids. The river/lagoon area is not suitable for swimming, especially for small children. Petrus greeted us and he was very friendly and welcoming. Our hosts always kept in good contact and were there if we needed them.
