Sandpiper Cottages® is a great getaway and hide away in the small rustic seaside village of Boggomsbaai on the warm Indian Ocean. Boggomsbaai is located halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, on the Garden Route just off the N2 and before you get to Mossel Bay from the Cape Town side.
Once discovered, our guests always return. You will do the same. We have eight Cape Cottages each with 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms. Each cottage is furnished in the olde Cape cottage style and fully equipped for self catering, lounge, open plan kitchens, dining areas, outside patios etc. All bedrooms have their own private bathrooms. The heart of each cottage is the large open fireplace. The cottages nestle snugly in the local fynbos where small buck and Cape hares roam between the houses and bird life is abundant.
You can walk for hours on our safe beach without seeing another soul. It is in an unspoilt bay where the Southern Right whales come to calf and mate during the months July to November. Dolphins play in the breakers all year round. The African Black Oystercatcher has chosen this beach as it`s main breeding area. Here you can still catch your own fish for breakfast or to braai on the indoor fireplace for dinner.
The cottages are ideal for families and groups of friends who are looking for an out of the way paradise in nature to reconnect and to bond. We are also popular for team building and small conferences and for those who wish to explore the coast with a guide to learn about nature and marine life.
We have our private own Sport and Leisure Centre with squash and tennis, tanning deck, therapy facilities and small wine cellar. We are fully licensed. The cottages are also adjacent to our local farm style golf course and clubhouse.
Nearby is dune horse riding, snorkeling, sandboarding, 4x4 facilities in the dunes of Kanon, and on the nearby Gourits river we have facilities for boats and fishing trips on the river. Fresh produce and meals are available at farm stalls in the area. Mossel Bay is only 25 minutes away with all it`s restaurants, facilities and activities such as boat trips round the island, the Diaz museum, shark cage diving etc.
We can provide dinners and breakfasts as well as picnic baskets for the beach on order at Sandpiper®.
All our cottages are equipped with DSTV facilities. For Houthuis and Mosselkraker you have to bring your own decoder. All other cottages have full DSTV.
- We are often featured in magazines such as Country Life, Getaway, Garden Route Living, Wine Magazines.
- We are also the host cottages for the world-famous Oystercatcher Trail
