BY THE SEA­SIDE COT­TAGE

Getaway (South Africa) - - Check In -

TripAd­vi­sor No. 4 of 5 B&B/Inns

This dinky lit­tle free­stand­ing cot­tage (shown on page 45) in the gar­den of artist Chris Sil­ver­ston should be listed on TripAd­vi­sor un­der Spe­cial­ity Lodg­ings rather than B&B/Inns; that said, it’s a real gem. French doors at the end of a gar­den path open into a com­pact lounge-din­ing-kitchen area, with an­other set of French doors lead­ing to your pri­vate pa­tio with wrought-iron ta­ble and chairs. A stair­case leads up to the loft bed­room, filled with fan­tas­tic sea views and light spilling over the queen-size bed through a large sash win­dow. Chris has a great eye for the in­ter­est­ing and the beau­ti­ful but never at the ex­pense of com­fort, and you are en­cour­aged to put your feet up and make your­self at home in her pretty gar­den. Lo­ca­tion is great too: quiet and set back from the bustling cen­tre yet five min­utes walk from the high street. ROOM TIP Chris also has a de­light­ful two-bed­room unit at­tached to her house ( capes­tay.co.za). In peak sea­son she rents this out to­gether with the house – com­bined it sleeps six, and is one of the classi­est op­tions in town ( per­fec­thide­aways.co.za). COST Cot­tage and unit both from R750 for two shar­ing, R100 pp ex­tra. Two-night min­i­mum stay. Ex­clu­sive-use from R6 500, min­i­mum stay one week. CON­TACT sa­fari­now.com
