Additional Location Information
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.
There are two beaches in very close proximity and then a whole lot more if you want to drive a little further. At the end of Hermanus there is a long beach where you can walk on the golden sands for miles. If you are looking for a large body of water for canoeing, sailing, kite surfing or water skiing then the Botriver lagoon is just down the road. Arabella Golf Course and Hermanus Golf Course are within a short distance.
Whales come in ever-increasing numbers in winter and spring to Walker Bay on which Hermanus lies. This is known as one of the best land-based whale watching venues in the world. If you want to go out on a cruise and see whales up close, that too is available.
There is off street parking for three cars. There is no bus service nearby but the local taxis run regularly three blocks away.
