About Kaaimans River Cottage

Only accessible by rowing boat, provided by the establishment, the cottage is a perfect escape back to a previous century. We provide a rowing boat and canoes for the guests's use.

The self-catering cottage sleeps a maximum of 8 guests (no more than 6 adults). We have three bedrooms accommodating 6 in total and a sleeper couch (for 2) in a loft area. The main bedroom has a king-size bed while the other two bedrooms each have two single beds. There are two bathrooms.

A generator provides electricity for light at night and for the usage of laptops, cell phone chargers and so on. Petrol for the generator is to be supplied by visitors. The generator uses approximately one litre per hour.

We recommend that visitors also bring head torches as these are incredibly convenient for use when the generator is not running, such as when you need to get up in the middle of the night to visit the bathroom.

We are situated close to the N2 so expect some traffic noise, especially over peak season. The best months to visit are November and February for the good weather and minimal traffic noise, followed by December and January.

Please wear shoes after dark; we are close to the mountain and close to nature. The hot water, fridge and stove run on gas. There is a braai area available to guests and a braai grid and tongs are supplied.

Parking is on the dirt road adjacent to the N2, on the other side of the river, in full view of the cottage. We are pet friendly by prior arrangement.

Guests need to bring:
1. Braai wood
2. Beach Towels
3. Petrol for the generator – which provides lights after dark
4. Head torches for after dark after the generator is switched off (any torch will in fact do)
5. The house has bedding/linen, but consider bringing extra blankets in case it gets cold.

Beach: A short four minute canoe trip brings you to the beach you can see from the cottage.

Family friendly: Children can entertain themselves with the rowing boat, waterfall, swimming in the river and playing at the beach.

NOTE:

We are not a party venue. If the idea is to have a party, note that this is not permitted. We reserve the right to terminate parties and ask rowdy guests to leave if this situation develops at the cottage.

The cottage is ideally suited to families with kids who would like to get away for a relaxing back to nature beach/river experience.

We are more than happy if people are having a good time. If you have a few guests who want to visit for a braai or spend the day, then just confirm with us first.

We require an additional R 2000 security/breakages/damages deposit for the use of the rowing boat and the house. The deposit will be returned immediately when the rowing boat is returned to us, together with the oars, the rowlocks and the anchor, in good order, and the exit inspection has confirmed the house in good order.

A post departure cleaning fee of R1000 is applicable to all bookings.
