Mary and her staff did an exceptional job of making our large group that took over all 8 cottages to accommodate 25 of us . First night we braaied using two of the cottages braais. Inside fires had wood delivered which kept the rooms beautifully warm. Next day we went off for a circular drive to Barrydale & on return all cottages were fully serviced & restocked with wood

Visited Arniston for a couple of days. We returned to our favourite cottages after far too long, this time with our children. We all had a great break and thoroughly enjoyed sitting front of the fireplace. The wood was very reasonably priced and and a generous amount of dry wood in the baskets. Rooms were clean, nicely sized and very child friendly. The braai area at the back is very secure and children could play without any worries. Absolutely loved the shower and warmed towels... a treat with the cold snap! Pictures on their site reflect what you can expect to see when you arrive and your hosts make you feel at home.

Always wanted to experience Waenhuiskrans and its authentic History. It happened to be raining. The stay at Seaside cottages was comfortable. The attending staff super friendly. Services were excellent. We bought wood for the fire place which was essential for cold weather. TV package was limited though. Cleaning service is provided. A worth while relaxing stay

We came back again, and was definitely not disappointed! Best family break away. Cottage is clean and has all you need for a beach holiday! Daily cleaning is a treat on holiday. Best fire places, to really unwind. Kids love it!

Arniston is a beautiful quiet seaside village with not much to do other than relax, take in the views, play in the sea, fish, walk, braai and be surrounded by family. The cottages are good for self-catering, serviced everyday except Sundays. Nice so you don't have to do it! Some are pet friendly so you can bring your dog and the yards are well enclosed in case you want to leave them behind and go to the beach or out for a little while. Braai is good and you can get wood and firelighters from Mary at reception. You can surf there but don't expect cooking waves, it's usually mushy. Bring a groveler or high volume board. Although a bit on the rustic side, they've improved over the last 10 years with better linen, utensils and furnishings.The beds are decent and electric blankets are available in winter for those chilly nights. Special place. Not many around like Arniston. Will go back again and again.
