Places to stay in Arniston
'Renosterfontein', our family holiday-home in the scenic coastal fishing village of Arniston, is 'our happy place'. Spending time in idyllic Arniston is about making special memories with family and friends, and a priceless investment in health and happiness. Our much-loved home is a charming and size-able thatched cottage, very well-located and close to the beach. This is where we laugh, play games, walk, talk, swim, eat, drink, read and sleep without a worry in the world. Pet friendly too.
Our Arniston-style thatched cottage is the perfect holiday-home for family and friends. Fully furnished and equipped, 'Renosterfontein' sleeps 8 adults with ease, and well-behaved pets are welcome too! Lots of extra spaces to chill inside or outside.
'Renosterfontein' is well-located and very secure in a quiet moonlit street. Fifth Avenue is only a 450m walk to the harbour and the beach opposite the Arniston hotel.
  • It was perfect for my family, both children & adults. Plenty of friendly spaces.

  • Renosterfontein is well-located and suited our needs very well. We will certainly book a stay here again.

    Arlene2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Renosterfontein felt like home immediately. It was truly a memorable 3 night stay with friends and family. Close to the beach, hotel, local shop and off license all within a short walking distance. The cottage has lots of space allowing for private space if required and communal areas for socialising. It contains all that is required for a comfortable stay. We would definitely love to visit again and would highly recommend. Thank you

  • The house was incredibly spacious and very well-equipped. All our guests were very grateful for the amazing living are which included a fireplace that kept us warm during our rainy getaway. Tracy’s caretaker Doreen was incredibly attentive and helpful with arrival and departure. We all enjoyed our stay so much and cannot wait to be back.

  • Great value for money. Had a great week at this quaint little spot!

    Willem2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect house. It has a brilliant balance of public and private space. The bedrooms are all private and there are many different shared areas in which to relax - weather and wind dependent. We were 5 adults and 2 teens and it worked perfectly - with lots of space to spare. The house is very well equipped and has the feeling of a much loved holiday house but without too much personal stuff that can make one feel like you're trespassing. Everything worked perfectly and there was every piece of equipment anyone could ever think of. Although it's back from the beach, Arniston is small enough to make walking or cycling to the beach or village no problem at all. Highly recommended - we had a superb 6 nights here.

    Cathy2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Renosterfontein is a great spot to relax and rejuvenate the soul. The fireplace on a cold and windy night is a real plus. Doreen is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back for another stay!

  • The only thing we didn't like was leaving. It was fantastic and Tracy was amazing! Thank you!

  • Dominic place is great. Very clean and big. All baths are amazing. There was all we needed for a great vacation with our 3 small children Thanks a lot Lavi & yael

    Lavi2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for an open, clean, well laid out, affordable accommodation for 6 (very comfortable) or 8 look no further than Dominic's home. Dominic is not short on accurate communication and his home big on equipment. There is an indoor fireplace which would make the winter months an attraction. There is a fair sized second refrigerator for drinks, a dishwasher and a washing machine. Ample cutlery and crockery. The extension (entire top floor) has been well thought through and has resulted in two large en suite bedrooms that are very spacious and well lit with natural light or nice and dark with the blinds provided. Look no further.

    George2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time in this comfortable home. There was ample space for 2 families. Lovely town and location.

    Arniston Seaside Cottages offers luxury self-catering accommodation in Arniston, voted ‘One of the World’s Best Hideaways’ by Time Magazine. We are surrounded by pristine beaches and nature reserves. We are within walking distance of child-friendly beaches. Our cottages are serviced daily and are 3-star graded. We have small and larger cottages, many with balconies with panoramic ocean views. The cottages are suitable for children of all ages and you may also bring your pets, by arrangement.
    Because these comfortable cottages are upstairs, they have great views of the ocean from their balconies. Each has a well-equipped kitchenette and its own bathroom. There are barbecue facilities downstairs.
    There is so much to do in Arniston. The family-friendly sandy beaches are all within walking distance of the cottages and are safe for swimming. You can go snorkelling in the warm and welcoming sea and the surfing is popular. The fishing here is excellent. There are beautiful walks on the endless unspoilt coastline. The whale watching is of the best and you are sure to spot the Southern Right whale frolicking in the turquoise-coloured sea. You may want to indulge in a traditional dinner in Kassiesbaai where guests are invited for an evening meal in one of the fishermen’s houses. Less than a 40 minute walk from the cottages is the most incredible natural feature, Waenhuiskrans Cave, an enormous sea cave which is only accessible at low tide.

    Leigh2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • I was very happy to be welcomed of a view of the ocean as we entered the garden gate, the house's info didn't advertise see-views, so it was a great surprise. It's a great big house, ready to have a group of friends or large family come and enjoy a proper beach holiday, and Arniston is definitely worth a visit or five. The house was full of everything you'd want from a beach house; so our kids and our grandkids thoroughly enjoyed the week we spent there.

    Billy2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic week get away. The location of the house is wonderful as it’s within walking distance of the closest beach which we used for the odd quick swim. We generally went to Roman Beach as we prefer the sand and surf there. This is a 5 min drive from the house. We also enjoyed strolling down to the harbor and watching the fishermen launch their boats or simply sitting on the benches and watching the world. The house worked well for us and we will be back.

    Bradley2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Just come back from an awesome weekend at Vitamin Sea. Perfect location. The house had everything we could have possibly wanted and our teenage kids had a ball (most of the time in the sea, playing boules and playing card games). The patio was a great place to chill when the wind came up as completely sheltered. Would love to go again.

    Cathy2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    We open our home to you as a family home, cozy, quite and warm in a 200 year old fishing village with lots of activities to do in the area like biking, swimming, bird watching, hiking, angling and long strolls on our sandy beaches, not to forget a trip to our Waenhuiskrans cave. The 4 star Arniston Spa Hotel is walking distance from our home with 2 restaurants, so is the harbor where you can get fresh fish to put on the coals, or for some local flair we have 2 local restaurants.
    Comfortable
    We are situated in a 200 year old fishing village which is a declared national heritage site

    Come and relax in Arniston's clear rock pools. Fish or hike along pristine, white beaches. Have a look at this open plan flat. Ideal for a couple. One bathroom with shower and toilet. Double bed. Portable braai. Private enclosed garden. TV available, but bring your own DSTV decoder and smart card. Dish not compatible with PVR decoders.
    Arniston is famous for starry night sky’s as we do not have street lights. The Arniston Beaches have clear rock pools ideal for snorkeling and warm water up to 20 degrees during summer.

  • The M&M Flat is exactly as described in the ad, it is bright, sparkling clean, airy and nicely decorated and equipped with everything you need for a few days. You can enjoy the afternoon sun on the terrace, and the harbor with a beach is within walking distance. Cornell, the co-host, helped us immediately and more than satisfactorily with a small problem - we would like to thank you again for that! Would we book the M&M Flat again? - Definitely!

    Martin+Meike2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely studio apartment with contemporary decor and all the self-catering equipment [including salt and pepper] that you will need. The built-in outside braai is great and we loaned a cast iron potjie from Cornel, making a mutton and veggie stew there, that was delicious!

    Mark2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

Fabulous kitchen, and the common areas are spacious, comfortable and well furnished. It is great to have a safe grassed area at the back of the house with the patio.

    Lynn2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • We would definitely book this house again if possible. Everything about this house works really well for an (extended) family of 8 or even for 4 couples (provided that 2 couples will use single beds). The kitchen and living area works exceptionally well and the stoep is perfect for a nice big brunch with the table that can take 8 chairs. The braai area is perfect and big enough for a feast of meaty dishes for 8 people. The inside heat stove in the living room is also a great plus and works extremely well - you really only need one bag of wood for 2 evenings because you can regulate the air flow. Lovely, lovely house for a weekend at the beach.

    Marius2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is perfect for a large family and the dogs! We are looking forward to a longer stay in the future.

A well equipped kitchen leads out to a paved, enclosed courtyard. A double bedroom (queen bed) with en-suite full bathroom and a private courtyard leading off the bedroom. The day bed and couch in the living area can comfortably sleep 2 children. There is a portable barbecue. Garage parking with direct access into the flat.
    The apartment is totally private from the main house. The main house is only used by the owners. Wi-Fi available for reservations of 4 nights or longer.
  • This is a beautiful, clean, modern, comfortable, quiet, impeccably furnished and really well equipped apartment on the edge of town, literally "Steps from the Beach" for great views over the bay and lovely walks along the sand towards the cave (but beware of the bats!). It's possible to walk to the hotel for a meal, but there is no street lighting so a torch would be necessary. If you are more adventurous, there are a couple of lovely little restaurants within the old fishing village serving simple meals, but you'd be best advised to drive there. There is an outdoor seating area with a bbq. We stayed 2 nights but wi-fi is only available for longer stays. There is no TV, so all the better for playing games or relaxing with a good book. There is a garage for the car and security provided with gates / shutters and an alarm.

There is a hotel, small kiosk type shop which sells absolute basics and a bottle store. The old village of Kassiesbaai has several little restaurants and there are also some wonderful restaurants and wineries on nearby farms. Arniston is one of the best places in the country for whale watching between July and late November. Have a look on www.arnistonalive.com for more up to date info on the area.
  • Loved our few days here; Jo’s house is perfect for a family getaway. Close to both beaches, well-equipped and with a lovely atmosphere - you can tell there have been many happy times spent in this place. Loved the fact that there was no WiFi or TV; the break from tech was very welcome and did us all the world of good. We’ll be back. Thanks for a great stay!

  • We recently spent a wonderful 10 days at Jo's house. It is perfect for a family beach holiday, basic but comfortable and with everything that you need. We were 2 families (each with 2 children) which was perfect, although the house could sleep more people. As the bedrooms open onto the courtyard (which is not fully enclosed) it did help that we had a baby monitor for our youngest child so I would possibly recommend that for other families with young children sleeping in other rooms. Jo was a great host and contacted me regularly to see how things were going and if there was anything that we needed, and Rovina also came every day to help clean the kitchen and living area, she also organised some fresh fish for us. The house is very well situated and you can easily walk to both beaches and the hotel. Lots of outside space for all the beach things, bikes etc. The courtyard was very protected from the wind so we had lovely afternoons there when the wind picked up. We were very happy with everything and would definitely recommend Jo's house to others. Thanks Jo!

  • Perfect for a family get away! No TV and no wifi was an excellent way to detox some screen hungry teens and the layout of the home is fantastic. A short walk from two beautiful beaches and well equipped with all the basics that you need. Will definitely stay there again.

    Modern open-planned living area with 2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds, an open loft area with 3 single beds and 2 bathrooms (one en-suite). Cozy fireplace. Large deck with magnificent views over open fynbos area and fishermen village. Outdoor barbecue/braai leisure area.
    Our cabin-style beach house is nestled in an indigenous overgrown garden while being a five minute walk from Arniston's crystal clear turquoise water and sandy white beaches. Arniston is near the southern most tip of Africa (Cape Agulhas), where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. A quaint and charming fishing village, renowned for it’s unspoilt coastline. It was named after one of the many shipwrecks that occurred off it’s coast. Arniston is also known as Waenhuiskrans (wagon house cliff), which is the name derived from the breathtaking tidal cave that one can visit at low tide. Each year from June to November, the Southern Right Whales visit the area to mate and calve. One can sit for hours and watch these huge graceful creatures from the shoreline. Although Arniston is popular for it’s peace and tranquillity, there are plenty of activities for outdoor enthusiasts. Days can be spent walking around the village or one of the nature trails, fishing, swimming, snorkelling, bird watching, cycling or relaxing on the beaches.
    There are restaurants in the Arniston Hotel and an a quaint eatery in the fisherman's village - both of which are accessible on foot. There are various other restaurants in Bredasdorp which is a 20 km drive from Arniston.
  • Stunning place, worth it 😎👍💯

  • If you want to really unwind, this is the place to stay- stylishly kitted out with everything you will need, including heaters for those freezing nights. The house overlooks fynbos and kassiesbaai and has a lovely braai area. We went with another couple and had 4 kids under 5 between us, but still managed to relax😊 If traveling with kids, keep in mind that there is a deck without a railing and the staircase to the loft doesn’t have a railing, but it wasn’t an issue for us. The indoor fireplace is amazing and heats the whole house. The floors are wooden so if you travel with kids, keep that in mind if they wake up at 4am. Bird life is amazing, and the house is very light and tranquil. The washing machine and dishwasher are a wonderful touch- saves one from slaving away in the kitchen when you could be relaxing on the deck. The beds are super comfy! We will definitely be back.

    My place is minutes away from Arniston's crystal clear turquoise water and sandy white beaches and the famous Arniston Hotel . You’ll love my place because of the people, the ambiance, the outdoors space, the neighborhood, the turquoise water and blue sky - let alone the bright stars at night. My place is good for couples, business travelers, and families (with kids). We are near the southern most tip of Africa (Cape Agulhas), where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet.
    Our house is spacious, it is fitted with all appliances to make your stay comfortable. The veranda (stoep) is the ideal place to just relax and enjoy a barbecue. The living area upstairs is fitted with a fireplace for those cold and rainy winter days. Here you can also watch TV or enjoy the see view.
  • It was a wonderful experience. Will definately be back!

    Linda2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house is equipped with more than what you need for a comfortable and long holiday!
