Place yourself between ocean, lagoon and towering mountains and you’ll arrive at Spookhuis Cottages, a hidden gem on South Africa's Whale Coast. Four stone cottages are surrounded by gardens and abundant bird-life of the Cape Floral Kingdom. Cottages range from sleeping 2 to 9. All have kitchens, fireplaces, firewood, patios, outdoor firepits and BBQ’s. Luxury linens and bath amenities are provided. Cottages can be self-catered or catered from Lagoon Bistro next door. Delicious breakfast baskets, dinner dishes, BBQ platters, garden produce and desserts can be delivered and lunch enjoyed at the Bistro. The area is a nature lover's paradise offering kayaking, mountain bike rentals, hiking and bird-watching. Whale watching, cage diving with great white sharks, the Marine Big 5 and beautiful wine lands are just down the road.

Thanks to Marcelino and his outstanding secret! We have lived in Hermanus for 15 years and this was a very special treat for 3 days - kayaks, quad bikes, a water slide, a swimming pool, an outdoor shower, chocolate cake and platters to celebrate .....all with outstanding courtesy and service from the team. We loved it - especially the picturesque setting and living space in Duminy. We are returning in October 2020 with 6! Warm thankyous! Liz Cheyne and Family.

We absolutely loved our visit to the Mosaic cottages, Lovely area and beautiful views of the lagoon and surrounding mountains. We were a party of 4 couples, and the 2 that were chosen for the Duminy Cottage were very happy (it is absolutely stunning) and the 2 that got the Milkwood Trail not so - especially the room we had, which did not have an ensuite bathroom. But anyway, this place is highly recommended and we will go again, but will be careful which cottage we book next time.
