As a family with four huskies and a labrador, we love taking our dogs with us on holiday. So when I bought Barking Beach Cottage I not only had dogs in mind, I had place where people can relax and socialize around a fire.
This house is really your home away from home; big enough for the dogs and children, but still small enough to easily keep clean. It is within walking distance of a dog-friendly beach as well as shops and few minutes’ drive from the town of Hermanus. You are close to all that the fishing town has to offer but not in the middle of peak-season traffic.
Throughout the cottage you will see photos in beautiful rustic frames of our dogs and family, including our horse Marley. You will also discover prints of our travels to Alaska, Seattle, Texas and England from a printed wooden bowl from the bowl company in Alaska, to a seafood recipe book bought in Seattle. If you come over Christmas you will find a plate with Christmas cookies. By doing this we create a warmth to the cottage to make you feel most welcome.
This self-catering accommodation is very stylish and gives a feeling of being by the beach but it is also very practical for children and dogs. The house is surrounded by a wall and is double gated for extra safety.
We believe that you will enjoy your stay, whether for a weekend breakaway or for a December holiday, and that you will return often.
