Little Arniston is a charming and cozy cottage, ideal for a family holiday and is a mere 5 minute walk to pristine beaches, rock pools and sand dunes and convenience store. The cottage has two bedrooms as well as a "rumpus/family room" so it is the perfect set-up for 2 families sharing. The rumpus room can sleep two children but is not suitable for adults. There is secure parking, Wi-Fi and TV. We are only 20 minutes from East London Airport and less than 15 minutes to OK Foods

In 1997 we purchased the vacant land, on which we built Maple Grove. The only structure on the property when we purchased it was a stable which stood where the existing cottage is now.In early 1998, building operations commenced over weekends on the main timber home and the stable was used as a storeroom and sleeping quarters for the duration of this exercise. At times building construction was endured during snowfalls and in sub-zero temperatures. The name Maple Grove was decided upon after numerous family discussions, and as the many varieties of Maple Trees on the property had already been planted by the previous owner. The main homestead took about 5 years to complete whereupon the stable was demolished and The Cottage was built out of wattle and daub. Both of these were rented out for holiday accommodation until we retired to Hogsback from East London in 2008, where Peter had been in the construction and renovations industry and I worked for many years in the medical field as a bookkeeper. We decided to close in underneath our log home so that we could accommodate family and friends, eventually adding on an extra lounge and kitchen as well as the wooden deck and Gazebo as our bookings grew. This became known as The Cabin. In 2010 our son Clayton returned from UK (after 8 gap years) to help Peter build The Chalet, which had been used as an open store-room/carport. This took about 7 months to complete. The established Kiwi Fruit Orchard formed part of the property and although not very big, it bears enough fruit annually for me to make jam which is sold in Hogsback and to our guests. (If we get to it before the monkeys and baboons) After Peter had completed the construction of The Chalet, he decided to try his hand at art, and this has become a keen hobby of his. Some of Pete's watercolours are on display in our cottages and are on sale at Maple Grove. We have 2 children, a daughter Brigitte who is married to James and lives in KZN. Our first grandchild, Bradley was born in October 2013. Clayton our son lives in New Zealand with his wife Amy, and our two little grand- daughters, Mackenzie, born in June 2014 and Georgia, born in September 2016. Maple Grove is our passion, and we have been privileged to meet so many wonderful people from all over the world, including local South Africans who have enriched our lives in so many ways.
