Both bedrooms have hairdryers and mirrors! There are 2 fan's in the Unit. Unfortunately no toddlers/children under 6, as we have an unfenced pool and limited garden to 'play' in. Babies in pram's are welcome! There is very safe, off-street parking for the evening. The house is extremely secure, and 7 minutes walk to the beach! It is in one of the most beautiful + picturesque parts of the Southern Cape - surrounded by mountains! PS You're welcome to use the solar-heated pool!

Guest access

You will receive keys/gate opener on arrival. Parking at night is in our driveway - very secure. High walls and automated gate. We unfortunately cannot acommodate trailer's or pet's. The pathway to the entrance is well lit. Unfortunately this space is not wheelchair friendly, due to stairs, and uneven pathway.

Interaction with guests

We lived in Fish Hoek since October 2013, and we're still on a voyage of discovery - and very enthusiastic about sharing all the wonderful 'finds' of this area and its surrounds. There is a list of places to visit, restaurants, hikes etc., in the bedroom, and I'm always around, so if you need to ask me anything, pop up, otherwise you have your own space and privacy!

Other things to note

As an avid landscape and seascape photographer, I also offer full or half/day trips with hands-on, informal photographic instruction. I will take you out, to some of my favourite spots, and on an informal basis help you hone your photography skills if you need it - great for folk who are not 100% sure of all the settings on their camera's, and how to get 'that' picture! Price on application. Unfortunately we cannot accept pets. We're cyclists / MTBiker's so can give you tips - and your bikes will be safe in the property

Robyn and Anthony were very helpful when we arrived - even helped us unpack our trailer! They were always available if we needed anything. We would definitely go back.

My mom and I had a wonderful time at Robyn's place. The accommodation held two bedrooms and two bathrooms (with great shower head water supply) so we each had our own space, which was perfect. All we needed was catered for. The secure parking is a big plus and you probably won't find a host more relaxed, open minded and bubbly than Robyn. Thank you Robyn for taking us along to the Cottage Club and very happy to come stay with you anytime again!

Robyn's nest was an absolute pleasure for us to stay at. It's close to the beach, restaurants, and easy access to major highways. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the tranquil home. The beautiful garden was a bonus as well. The host went out of her way to make us feel at home on arrival and throughout our stay. We'll definitely be back!!

Robyn User Profile

I'm a Work From Home Photographer. Good friends, good food, family.... travelling with my husband when the Rand/USD plays fair. We've visited most of Southern Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Equatorial Guinea, France, Italy, UK, Ireland, Greece, Germany and recently Norway, Canada and the USA! I walk. I hike. I cycle. I boogey-board most mornings at our beautiful beach, and whenever I have the opportunity, I grab a camera and go exploring! I visit our local food markets, love the variety of music evenings that happen in our Valley, and am never bored! I'm happy to share my knowledge of our beautiful part of the world, but assure you of your complete privacy. You're welcome to pop upstairs and pick my brain for 'tips of the day'! I also offer half and full day outings with me, for some hands-on informal personal photography instruction, where I'll share some tips, and some of my favourite landscape and seascape locations. As a frequent traveller, the most important thing to me is a comfortable bed, clean, fresh linen, and comfortable pillows! These things you will find at Robyn's Nest!
