Near the southernmost tip of Africa (Cape Agulhas), where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet - is Arniston - a quaint and charming fishing village, renowned for its unspoiled coastline, exquisite turquoise coloured sea and sandy white beaches. It was named after one of the many shipwrecks that occurred off its 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, or from many of the beach houses. Although Arniston is popular for its 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, snorkeling, bird watching, cycling or relaxing on the beaches.
Come and experience it for yourself.

‘Twas lovely and a perfect location. Very convenient location and clean establishment. Could do with a TV though as the weather in the evenings were cold. A covered fire place outside would be nice as it started to drizzle whilst braaing and for socializing purposes. Other than that the facility was perfect. Will recommend it … Continue reading “STEPS FROM THE BEACH”
Easy going beach holiday. Easy access to both beaches. Lots of rock pools for kids to explore. Enclosed courtyard for kids to run around safely. Spacious house.
A very well equipped flat and very comfortable. The little patio was private and protected from the wind to have a braai. Time we spent there was very restful.
Kuierhuis naby aan die strand. Ons het ons naweek weg in Arniston baie geniet en die huis is toegerus met alles wat mens benodig vir ‘n wegbreek.

“One of the nicest places to stay in Arniston, nice ocean views. House is very well appointed and very comfortable indeed. Conveniently located near swimming area and the hotel.” Brain – The Beach House
Excellent stay in Arniston. House is beautiful, well equipped and spacious. Pleasant gardens and easy access to everything. Housemaid came in the morning and was very polite and friendly, very efficient at her work. Overall a fantastic weekend family break, will certainly return again. Tony
Bossieveld will definitely see us again…fantastic view and well-equipped kitchen, what more do you want…maybe the fact that it sleeps 12 so it is big enough for 2 families AND the kids can take their friends with.
The house was great – had everything we wanted. It’s very tastefully done and lots of space – 4 en-suite bedrooms. We had a great family weekend away for a special occasion
