Overnight or holiday stopover, The Barnacle, Pringle Bay, Overberg. This hidden gem is situated right on the beach at the Buffels river estuary. Come and explore Jenny’s super-relaxed seaside cottage situated in lawny enclaves which lead to the beach with its fine white sand. In summer the lagoon is a kids paradise. Baboons troop over the beach and there are otters in the river. Breakfast is served on the deck from where whales (in season) and fynbos and estuarine birds can be watched. Glowing sunsets can be enjoyed while you sip your sundowner before moving on to the restaurant of your choice.
The open plan cottage is fully self contained, with separate entrance and has an antique solid brass double bed, fitted with a luxurious posteurpaedic mattress, a separate sleeping alcove with twin beds, a dining area furnished with country antiques and a cosy sitting room with its own fireplace for cool autumn and winter evenings. The en-suite bathroom guarantees complete privacy. It also has its own enclosed garden and barbeque area which is connected to the beaches either by a wandelpad (footpath) through the reeds that lead to the beach on the edge of the lagoon, or the path that leads over the dune onto the main beach.
Breakfast baskets can be provided by prior arrangement. There is a TV and a Wi Fi connection available.
