Artist's Retreat BB is now a stones-throw from the beach and situated right across from Mauritz Bay with only a quiet road which separates the B&B from the small little bay. Mauritz Bay is locally called More "Moerie se baai" and one of the seven little bays in Jacobs bay. Comfortable rooms all with showers (Cezanne, Toulouse, & Van Gogh) or Bathroom (Monet) on suite. . Monet and Cezanne both have a kitchenette with fridge and microwave and suitable for guests that would prefer self-catering units. All rooms standard with coffee/tea stations, mini fridges. Both upper floor rooms lead onto a large deck with seating area for meals while you admire the view over the bay. Toulouse and Van Gogh lead onto a wooden deck with seating area with great sea view and situated on ground level. All guests have access to the central lounge/dining area with Television or the more formal lounge without television. Breakfast room with BBQ facilities shared by all. Look forward to seeing you.
