This cottage was a delight, had everything you need,except kettle, masterbedroom very comfy, water very shallow for quite away out. Very private and serene. Sleeping cabin not suitable as mildew scent prevented us from using it even though the appearance of the cabin was clean and neat. Waves were quite high at times which prevented us from kayaking as much as we would have liked, sunsets were spectacular!

We had a wonderful week staying at this fully equipped cottage in Lion's Head. The cottage is located at the end of a quiet road, and both my husband and I had the chance to unwind-reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, riding the supplied bicycles, sitting down at the dock for morning coffee and afternoon sunsets, and sitting by the fire at night. After the relaxing days, it was wonderful to have the sound of the waves lull us to sleep in the very comfortable king size bed. Our only disappointment was we did not find a suitable swimming area until the last day.
