This is magnificently isolated, rustic, self-catering cabin … overlooking the pristine coastline between Struisbaai and Arniston, is situated up in the dunes bordering De Mond Nature Reserve…. it does not get better.

Surrounded by 600 hectares of un-occupied fynbos and milkwood thickets, the cabin offers amazing peace and solitude, idyllic birding, fantastic walks, surf fishing, trail running and off-road bike rides for nature enthusiasts.

A 1km walk through the fynbos and dunes brings you to the long isolated stretch of beach, 3km from “De Mond”, the mouth of the Heuningnes River – one of the best kept secrets of the Western Cape.
