Birdsong Cottage lies nestled in a grove of Milkwood trees, overlooking the Vermont Saltpan, which is a bird sanctuary. This four bedroomed, three bathroomed house is fully equipped for eight people. It is an ideal location for nature lovers wanting to relax away from the bustle of the city.

The house has a fully-equipped kitchen, and spacious dining and lounge areas. The living area has a French stove which makes the house really cozy on those chilly evenings. The large verandah at the front of the house has a built-in barbeque and offers spectacular views across the water, towards the mountains. This is an ideal bird watching spot. A grove of Milkwood trees at the back offers a cool place to shelter on those hot summer days.

The house is a short stroll from the ocean tidal pool and a path that follows the coast in both directions...

Interaction with guests
Guests are always met by a lovely lady. She shows them around and explains anything that they would like to know, as well as pointing out various special features of the house and surroundings. She has excellent local knowledge so if there are questions about the Hermanus area e.g. restaurants, then she is more than happy to share those details.

About the neighbourhood
Birdsong Cottage sits at the edge of a green belt, on the shores of a lake that teems with birdlife. The milkwood trees behind the house create shade and is the perfect place to have a leisurely lunch on a hot day. However, if you are wanting to barbeque in the day or evening then the front verandah is where the sun will find you and from where you can watch the mountains changing colour as the sun sets and birds flying in to find their resting spot for the night.

Hermanus centre is 10 km away. Birdsong Cottage is in Vermont which is a quiet suburb of Hermanus. This busy town has shops where you can find all you need and more. There are a few grocery stores and restaurants within easy walking and others five minutes away.
