Places to stay in Redelinghuys
The ultimate rustic surf experience right in the heart of an absolute West Coast gem of a town. World class surf right in front of you as well as reefs teaming with crayfish and mussels. This home epitomises West Coast surf living - perfect for a family get-away or a surf-trip weekend up the coast with friends. A short walk away from hiking up the infamous E-Bay mountains, exploring caves with bushman paintings and just taking in the mind-blowing views. This is where you want to chill.
The place is very rustic and arty - it embodies West Coast living.
The town is a very historical West Coast fishing village that became a world-famous surf spot in the 60's when legendary film maker Bruce Brown featured the spot in his legendary cult classic, The Endless Summer. It has also been a haven for recreational crayfish divers for many decades and boasts the infamous crayfish factory at the also infamous Baboon Point (aptly named for the shape of the mountain that towers above it). Elands Bay also marks a convenient stop-over for many a West Coast 4x4 traveller, many embarking on the popular trek up the Diamond Coast, which begins not so far North of Elands Bay.
  • A really awesome, open plan surf cabin. Nice and close to the beach and surf spot. Great deck to enjoy a braai while watching the sun setting over the ocean.

  • Karin was a really nice host, she gave me some tips on where to go and she even proposed me to join her for dinner! There is everything you need at the backpackers but there is just not much around. The drive from Cape Town and to Lambert's bay is gorgeous though.

    Benguela (next to The Surf Shack) is close to the beach and surf. Ideal for surfers, the accommodation is very basic. We provide sheets and pillows with slips, guests bring bedding or sleeping bags. Benguela has a kitchen with stove and oven, old fridge and double sink. There is a braai/bbq on the balcony. The swimming pool is not in use and will be used again when water restrictions are lifted. A simple place with no frills at an affordable price.
    Both spaces are pretty rustic, with an accent on preserving the local flora for the local fauna.
    Elands Bay is a very West Coast village growing potatoes and fishing. The surf on the point gets very good when the swell is big enough to get into the bay, which is pretty often.
  • Very nice staying at Alan’s place. Spacious, clean and just next to the sea. We contacted the host quite late but he responded promptly and welcomed us the following day.

    Guy2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Basic place, stayed here everytime I've been in Elands and it's perfect for a surf weekend. Last time we even unfolded the table tennis table which was epic! (Recommend bringing your own balls as the balls at the house are on their last legs).

    Guy2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Best location in Elands. Lovely deck. Sunny, airy, rustic house.

    Marilize2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Alan was super quick in response and extremely helpful. His place is right next to the waves which is ideal!

    Sion2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Close to the beach, really nice to stay with a couple of friends, good views! Simple but has everything you need. Definitely coming back!

    Michael2019-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Benguela! The house is huge and has everything you need for a very happy and relaxed holiday. One thing that stands out for me is the location and the view, which is really close to the beach and the Point. We had many. many braai's on the upper deck and its well sheltered from the wind that inevitable picks up in the afternoon on the Weskus. One thing to note is that the electricity meter is located in the Surfer Shack next door and connects both houses. Not a biggie but I would recommend befriending the occupants of the Surf Shack (if there are any) to make sure that some well meaning traveler doesn't switch off the mains upon their departure and leave you in the dark. The onsite caretaker is very helpful and a great guy to deal with. We will definitely be back again.Thanks Alan!

    Andrea2019-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a nice, comfortable place with a view at the sea. We recommend it and will definitely come back :)

    A little piece of heaven best describes our Elands Bay home :) This house has stunning views over the ocean and is within a 5 minute walk from Elands Bay popular surf spot and about a 10 minute drive into the town. Enjoy a cocktail and "lekker braai" on the deck while you enjoy the peacefulness that is Elands Bay!
    This home has 2 full bedrooms (one with a queen size bed and one with a double bed) and a loft room which has a queen size mattress on the floor. Please take note however that this loft room has no bedroom door and requires you to climb stairs so it is not ideal if you are wanting privacy or if you are worried about safety.
    Elands Bay is a town situated on the West Coast on the Atlantic Ocean. The town is located about 220 kms (two and a half hour drive) north from Cape Town International. It is a major surfing location and is also noted for its caves, which have a number of rock paintings. The Elands Bay Cave and most of Baboon Point (Cape Deseada) on which it is located, is a a provincial heritage site.
  • Wonderful spot in Elands Bay! Love the open plan layout and great view!

    Ernst2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

  • Defnitely one of the best views in Elandsbay South. Love the house airy and light feel. Neat, clean and spacious. Best outside braai! Host very is kind and helpful. We will definitely book again.

    * Delightful comfy unpretentious cabin on the Verlorenvlei with endless vistas and space to roam. Its stylish and quirky but relaxed and unfussy at the same time. Close to Vensterklip resort and up the road from the famous E Bay point break. At the moment due to the ongoing drought the vlei has all but dried up so no fishing and boating currently but of course the most exquisite beach is down the road.
    Our cottage is ideal to visit regularly for rest, recreation and inspiration. This is the place to bring your kids and teach them to surf, horse ride, fish, shoot, make fires and all the good, wholesome stuff they can’t do at home.
    Verlorenvlei is one of the largest natural wetlands along the west coast of South Africa and one of the few coastal fresh water lakes in the country, stretching between the village of Elands Bay and Redelinghuys. The main body of the lake is 13.5 km long and 1.4 km wide with an area of 1 500 ha. and is a proclaimed Ramsar site. The Convention on Wetlands, called the Ramsar Convention, is a treaty that provides the framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation of wetlands. Verlorenvlei is not only one of the largest lakes but one of the few coastal freshwater lakes that is one of the most important estuarine systems in the Western Cape, and one of the largest natural wetlands on the Cape west coast. It is a significant coastal lake, supporting over a thousand wading birds, and providing a nest and a rest of over 75 species of water birds. It supports over 5 000 birds most of the time, and occasionally as many as 20 000.
  • We had a lovely relaxing stay. The house has everything you need for a getaway from city life. Not on the beach but a short drive and in a lovely setting. Only negative is that the house is very close to a busy road but doesn't spoil the experience at all.

    Francesca2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Craig for an amazing weekend up the West Coast. We loved the spacious braai area, the stars at night and the whole interior. Perfect for a private getaway with family or friends.

    Jessica2019-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Me and my partner absolutely loved staying here. Great location and lovely accommodation. We would definitely come back.

    Frederick2019-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here over New Years with friends. It’s simple, yet had everything we needed. No sound or light pollution, just wonderful stars and quiet fires. Would highly recommend.

    Mari & Joshua2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. We stayed a couple of nights 2 adults, 2 kids and an infant. The house is perfect for that. Braai and stargazing in the evening, wrestling with waves at elands bay beach during the day. Recommended.

    Iago2018-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Klein Bontebok is the perfect weekend getaway for a group of friends or a young family. An amazing location that’s close to the beach and offers the privacy and peaceful atmosphere of the Vlei. Horses grazing in the large open fields around the house and a big outdoor Braai and plenty outdoor seating. This truly is a hidden gem

  • Our family celebrated Christmas in Theo and Freda's place and it was WONDERFUL! The house is beautifully decorated and there was everything needed to prepare a Christmas dinner. The dishwasher and washing machine were bonus! The place was squeeky clean and very tastefully decorated. The house is very well built and gave shelter for BBQs even on windy nights. It's wonderful to have hosts like them. They know the area very well and even told us about a scenic route we could drive back, which was really a unique experience. Also, order a sourdough bread from Freda immediately on your arrival - it is delicious. Thank you,Freda and Theo!

  • Staying at Freda and Theo's place was an amazing experience for us! Everything was perfect and she made our stay as comfortable as possible! The view from the house is amazing and you can see and hear the sea roaring sitting in the bedroom and the outside area. We loved the house and the place so much, we requested for extending our stay for another day and she accommodated us happily! They are an amazing host and gave us detailed information before we reached. The house is beautiful, very clean, very comfortable beds and so well kept, with all the modern appliances you may need, even for making your own food. The invited us for coffee and we got to learn a lot about the experiences and life. We will surely go back again! Thank you so much Freda and Theo! 🤗

    Pieter2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • The home is spacious, well-appointed with modern appliances and comfortable bedding. Theo and Freda were welcoming and lovely to chat with, going as far as to lend us supplies to sort a minor medical problem. Beach access and hotel dining are under a minute's drive, the point ten minutes. Will happily return.

    Awesome open plan beach living with two barbecue areas, shelter from wind and upstairs entertainment room with mountain and sea-facing balconies walking distance from beach and surf-break.
    Great family space. Upstairs entertainment room with sea and mountain views from two balconies with table tennis table & slate-top pool table. One single bed upstairs and a day bed downstairs in the dining area, that can serve as sleeping beds for kids. One en-suite bedroom with queen-size bed, a second bedroom with queen size bed and a third bedroom with twins. Large second bathroom with shower and bath. Outside hot and cold shower. Sheltered barbecue area downstairs and another barbecue area upstairs with great views. Inside fireplace for those cold winter nights. Great open living area and dining space leading into a large open-plan kitchen with breakfast nook. Awesome location - short walk from the beach.
    Quiet small village feel. A few minutes walk to the best point break in the Western Cape.
  • We stayed at Magda‘s beach house four weeks ago and immediately booked the house again. It exceeded our expectations in every way and is perfect place to stay. The house is spacious, practically arranged, very well furnished, and sparkling clean. The walk to the beach is 2 min, to the surf break 4 min. There is a table tennis and a pool table, which was great fun for the whole family. Very nice views onto the ocean and the mountain range. Looking forward to coming back.

    Annette2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • The house is amazing with everything that you need. If you think of something to take, don't, it is most probably in one of the cupboards :) The linen was clean and firewood placed in the braai (bbq) areas, a nice touch. Thank you to Mary (amazing woman) for keeping the house tidy. The house is close to the beach and it is only about a 5 minute walk. This house really does offer the best of both, a nice view of the ocean on the one side, and a view of the Bobbejaan Mountain range on the other. The Sishen - Saldanha train also passes on the mountain side, which offers (for train lovers at least) great photo and video opportunities. Wifi in the house is also a nice touch. The restaurant in town (Wit Mossel Pot) serves nice seafood and has a great vibe. For something a bit different a visit to Muisbosskerm, close to Lambert's Bay, is a nice day visit with great buffet seafood. You can also top up your groceries at Spar or OK in Lambert's Bay when you go out that way. Just one thing to note is that the house actually has 3 bathrooms, this wasn't clear when I looked at the listing. 1 En-Suite with shower, 1 with bathtub and shower in the living room and then 1 with a toilet and basin in the living room as well. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return for another visit. Thank you very much.

    Rynhardt2020-01-03T00:00:00Z

    The Surf Shack is very basic shelter for surfers and other interesting people. There is a galley kitchen with small fridge, stove and ovenette, sink, etc. Bathroom has shower, basin & toilet. The bedroom has a double bed. The living area has 4 single beds and a lounge. We provide sheets & pillows with slips, guests bring their own bedding or sleeping bags. The swimming pool is not in use due to water restrictions, however we are close to the refreshing Atlantic ocean when you need to cool off!
    The Surf Shack is super basic and needs an upgrade. If you like that sort of thing and are in EBay for the surf or other worthwhile pursuit, then you are welcome. We keep prices down to reflect this.
    Elands Bay has a great left point for surfers, long beaches, and an interesting coastline complete with wildlife and sometimes a flower bloom. Birdlife is rich here, and the landscape is unique for the area.
  • The surf shack always provides excellent value ! If has the minimum of everything you need and is in a great position. Nice people running it.

The listing is 100% accurate and has all the comfort you would expect from a ‘surf shack.’ The inside living area is nice and spacious, while right outside there is also a big braai area which gets ample sunlight. Would definitely book again!

    Elands Bay, Western Cape, South Africa

    This Architect designed beach house built with straw bales provides spacious, comfortable, self-catering accommodation in Elands Bay, West Coast, South Africa.
    This straw house, designed by Matthew Beatty, and built by the Burgers epitomizes relaxation. The thick bale walls protect from the relentless winds, keeping the rooms cool in the hot dry summers and warm in the cold winters. A teak sliding door & folding sliding window opens the living / kitchen area into a tranquil court yard. The bedroom area is joined by a North African style “chill out” area to the south and an outside bath house to the north. The modern design is softened through the use of simple fittings and natural building materials, creating the ultimate location to unwind.
    “The west coast is like a high powered internet connection to your soul. It is wild, rugged, tempestuous and untamed and any time spent here will lodge itself in the feel good centres of your being.” Coast to Coast Guide Evidence still exists of life from as many as 20000 years ago in this area. People from all around the world are still drawn by the harshness and beauty. Clear your mind on the endless stretch of beach, be hypnotized by the flawless swell lines that wrap into the bay and break perfectly down the left hand point, spend hours watching the amazing array of mammal and bird life along Verloren vlei or indulge in an evening of “brandy and coke” with the local potato farmers in the infamous Elands Bay hotel.
  • Well designed house. Enjoyed our stay!

    You’ll love our place because of the location close to the sea (a wonderful left break surf spot) and the safety and tranquility of the area.
    This open-plan little gem by the sea sleeps six people (two doubles and two singles). The quiet of night is only disturbed by the sound of breaking waves. Elands Bay is so safe that here kids ride their bikes in the street and people still walk on the (dog-friendly) beach alone.

  • Thank you for making our stay in Elandsbay an unforgetful one. We fell in love with this lovely town and the house was perfect and had everything we needed and more. The check-in was seamless. Just bring your clothes and food, there is even a dishwasher and washing machine. We played pool each evening and could enjoy a nightcap on the enclosed balcony. The view is great and close to everything. The house was sparkling clean and we enjoyed spending time there so much! We will highly recommend Ons Huisie to anyone! You will not be dissapointed! Thank you!

    Stephnie2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Pieter’s house could not be better situated in Elands Bay. It has beautifully large sliding doors/ windows giving a fantastic view to the sea and to the famous surf point break. It is spacious and homely with lovely furnishings. In particular I loved the fact that the pillows and duvet and mattress were so comfortable - a rare pleasure in most of the homes I have been hosted in all over the world. Sonja made the check in and check out easy and stress-free and Pieter was always available if there were any questions and communication was seamless. Less than a 5 min walk into the little village square to the local shop or bottle store or little restaurant was a pleasure and the fact that less than 40 meters out of your door you were on the beach and could walk in peace and safety for miles in either direction. I would heartily recommend Pieter’s place to anyone visiting Elands Bay ( but not too many please .... I would prefer it all to myself!!!! 😏😏😏). Absolutely great for your pets as well. Our dog - Izzy - absolutely adored the house , the friendly neighborhood hounds and her numerous daily beach excursions. I would most definitely love to visit again in the not too distant future.

    Di2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gem of a vacation home, close to the beach, with plenty of living room space in and out of doors. We felt safe and secure at this very quiet little town, and the check in was handled very professionally by the manager, Sonja.

    Christine2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place. Perfect for families, and basically on the beach. Beautiful, charming little town. This is a little gem, worth every Rand.

    Frans2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • A couple of meters from a beach where we could enjoy TOTAL tranquility together with our two pets is priceless. Thank you Pieter. Your home is truly special.

    Peter2019-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Best value for money self catering accommodation in Elands Bay when considering location and amenities offered. As comfortable as your own home but 40m from the beach! As good as it gets.

    SURFERS! You'll love this beautiful beach house, in front row at Elands Bay right and only a 2-minutes walk to the point! Watch the surf from the large balcony or garden, chill at the wind-shielded patio outside and enjoy a hot outdoor shower after your session. Our place is perfect for groups or 2 or 3 families. Two large fire places, airconditioning, braai facilities, views for days and even wifi - this is the place where memories are made, that is a promise.
    THE HOUSE & GARDEN Our beach house is located in front row to the beach at Elands Bay South, only a few steps away from the Elands Bay right break. A little path leads down the beach from the beautiful, enclosed garden with the spacious patio. The lounge area, the long dining table and the large built-in braai / fire place are the recipe for your perfect days and evening in Elands', that's for sure. Windy or chilly? Just close the American shutters and you can sit outside the whole night. THE BEDROOMS: We have space for 13 people in this house. 1. Main bedroom upstairs, ensuite / 2 people The main bedroom with double bed opens up into the large balcony. Step out first thing in the morning to have a look at the waves! The spacious ensuite bathroom has a large walk-in shower. 2. Second bedroom upstairs, ensuite, 2 people This bedroom has 2 single beds that you can easily push together for a king size bed. You have access to the balcony from this room, too. What a view to wake up to! The bathroom has a large walk-in shower as well. 3. Third bedroom, downstairs, private bathroom, 2 people This bedroom has 2 single beds as wel that you can push together for a king size bed. The separate bathroom has a shower and a bathtub. 4. "The boys' room", ensuite, 7 people The boys' room has a separate entrance, a large bedroom with 7 single beds, a separate bathroom, and its own lounge area. We call it "the boys' room" because you can have your kids stay there on their own without any worry. It will be like they have their own little holiday house - in your sight of course ;-) THE KITCHEN & LOUNGE AREA: The open-plan kitchen opens into the dining area and into the lounge with the comfy big chairs and sofas. A big fire place will keep you warm on those chilly winter days. The kitchen is equipped with everything you can ever need - from washing machine to dishwasher, toaster and sandwich maker, smoothie maker and blender.
    The house is located in Elands Bay South, in the front row to the beach and only a 2 minute walk to the point. The Elands bay right break is right in front of your doorstep. No surf? Go check out the Bushman art at the cave past baboon point.
  • What a special spot!! Everything about this house is wonderful, the location is amazing (and very definitely protected from the wind), it's so lovely for children (great lawns and open spaces) and is a perfect set up for surfers! Denise was great with sending through all the information before we arrived and made sure we were enjoying our stay! Lapken is wonderful and very discrete. Many thanks - an all round fabulous weekend!

    Kate2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fanstastic holiday at Elands. Loved being able to walk to the beach and were lucky with great waves too. The house is perfectly situated and very comfortable. Will definitely go back.

    Marguerite2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our second stay and it gave us all huge pleasure to return. We are already planning our next visit for 2020. The house just works so well with three couples and all the kids (boys) upstairs. Lapken looked after us well and the beach is a stumble away. Can’t beat it.

    Alasdair2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible house! 2 families with kids and a couple of singles all fitted comfortably. We had an incredible weekend, thanks a lot! Surf was pumping the whole weekend! Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Lapkin was always on hand if we needed anything. Perfect winter getaway!

    Ryan2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • What a stay! We absolutely loved it! Perfect location. Clean. Comfy beds! Lapken was always around when we needed him. Couldn’t fault it

    Jessica2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • The ‘Beach House’ is well located for surfers. A quick stroll down to one of the breaks is easy. Private, spacious, well appointed, with commanding views from balcony of surf, complete with indoor and outsider fireplaces, was just perfect for us. The 8x school boys has a super time in loft space, the adults enjoyed quiet time in main house which was too, and with Lapken’s help which was invaluable, I would highly recommend, and will define you be back too.

    Brent2019-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely family-friendly house with the most amazing location on the beach. Wonderful seating areas outside either on the stoep or balcony upstairs. The perfect place to relax & unwind for the whole family.

    Shireen2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely old house, beautifully restored and furnished located in a fairly wild and rugged part of the west coast. It is super comfortable, extremely relaxing and managed by a wonderful man Lapken.

  • Our two night visit at the Straw Shack was absolutely sublime. We were fortunate to have good weather and so the outside braai was a winner both nights. This exquisite place is perfectly equipped for a couple, safe neighborhood and a 2 min walk to the beach an nearby cafe. Highly recommended!

    Mia2019-06-17T00:00:00Z

The decor is excellent and functional. Bed was very comfy. Loved the rope shelves, the braai was very much used...Thanks Again

    Our beach home offers ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation. The kitchen, dining&living rooms are high volume, open plan & look onto unobstructed mountain&sea views. Concertina doors to deck & braai. Enjoy comfort in en-suite bedrooms(2xking,1xQueen).
    Our beach home is in the front line of houses in Elands bay South. From the lounge, deck and upper look out chill-area it has an several unobscured views of the surf break from take off to beach. It looks down on the mouth of the vlei where a large array of magnificent bird life floats, wades, fishes, calls and sings. Through the back gate there is direct access to a path leading to the beach via a few minute walk. The roadside of the house looks out onto the rocky fynbos hill, the peak of which is circled and perched on by a resident Verreaux Eagle pair. Elandsbay is a very peaceful place which somehow induces immediate relaxation. There is a vibration in the area (perhaps due to the interplay of sea and slopes) which truly leaves one feeling moved. This possibly lead to the Khoisan of ancient times choosing a cave which is 20 minutes walk from the house to paint rock paintings of swollen rain animals and hunters while performing their ceremonies.
    This part of the west coast is magical, untouched and unique. It offers outdoor activities galore including surfing, kiting, windsurfing, climbing, hiking, paddling, running along the incredibly long stretch of beach, fishing, and diving. This is also one of the top areas in South Africa for bird watching. Verlorenvlei boasts on of the greatest varieties of bird species in South Africa. During flower season a short drive offers lovely flower sightings. There is an iron ore railway line passing Elands bay North and South. This is one of the longest trains in the world. Apparently some of the trains run for more than 3 km! Some days' rail schedules are busier than others. The train does not stop transporting ore on any days in the year. Most tenants find the train charming and interesting but some have found it a disturbance.
  • A wonderful airy contemporary beach house with stupendous views and direct access to the beach

    Lesley2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had the best start to the new year at Mark’s place. It is the perfect holiday house. The beds are incredibly comfortable, the upstairs living space works very well and has amazing views. We feel refreshed and wish we could stay longer.

    Benguela and The Surf Shack offer extremely basic and rustic accommodation on the point in Elands Bay ideal for surfers close to the beach & surf. We provide sheets & pillows with slips, guests bring bedding and towels and all amenities like toilet rolls, dishwashing liquid, etc. Both places have their own kitchens and shared bathrooms. See their listings for more info or to book either independently of the other. The swimming pool is not in use until water restrictions are lifted.
    The location is the best part, as it is a short walk to and from the surf and beach. The extreme basic-ness make both places affordable shelter while having loads of space, some nice views and no fences. We have had zero crime in 15 years and have nice neighbors. I built both places myself, so there are quirks! Like 4 meter ceilings downstairs in Benguela, among other things.
    A very quiet area outside of some weekends, with good surf to be had during the week. Our neighbors are all really nice, so no worries there (please help keep it that way). Noise cutoff time 10pm.
  • Such a groovy little spot! Had such a lovely time in Elands - the house is very basic, but that is what gives it its charm. Just a stone's throw away from the beach, a stunning balcony, a fully equipped kitchen and a great vibe! 10/10 I will most definitely be back! :)

    Nina2019-08-04T00:00:00Z

  • Imogen’s house is about 50m from the beach in a very quiet and secluded area that is ultra safe giving you real peace of mind. Our family fit comfortably in the space with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Most rooms have a double bed plus single and they are very spacious. Loads of space for teens to lounge about and for the adults to also have peace of mind. If you love quiet and long walks on the beach and you have a big family, this house is good value for money. Note there is a long staircase leading to the upstairs area where most of our socialising happened. Thanks Imogen for hosting us.

  • This property is perfect for a chilled and relaxing stay. It is so lovely and open-pan. The ease of access to the beach is incredible and the location is amazing for a beautiful sundowner. Communication was so good with Gerry who’s a lovely bloke and Elands is a perfect place for a sick surf and chilled weekend.
