(Furniture make over August 2021) Our holiday home is in the heart of Pondoland. As a family we love "On the Rocks". The house sits atop a rocky outcrop overlooking the beautiful tidal estuary. Spend your days fishing, swimming in the river, chilling on the beach or taking in the spectacular views from our deck! Our cottage is suitable for up to 6 adults and 4 children, please read the description below about the bedrooms.

The space
Totally unique environment. Our house is looked after by Xman & Julia who live locally. (We live 1,300kms away). Julia attends to the cleaning and Xman will show you around the area, show you the best spots to fish, fetch bait & even teach your kids how to fish or help bait their lines. He also is on hand to fix any issues that may arise with the cottage.
The house water is from rainwater off the roof so you must be water wise! And bring your own drinking water.
There are 3 ensuite facilities (toilet, basin & shower) attached to the 3 bedrooms, all of which open out onto the stoep over looking the estuary. There is one room with a king size bed, one with a queen size bed and another with four single beds.
There is a lounge & dining room over looking the estuary with a TV & DVD player & DSTV dish (you must bring your own DSTV decoder & card). There is a full kitchen & stainless steel braai.
Access to the cottage when raining can be difficult! (Contact me for details).
You also have access to a shared boat house where you can use our kayak and SUP. You can even braai/bbq down by the river.

(Please note use of our Kayak & SUP is at your own risk. We cannot be held liable for any damage or injury to property or persons.)

Bookings between December 1st and January 15th must be a minimum of 5 nights.

If you have any questions then don't hesitate to contact me.
