Built in 1938, Rus 'n Bietjie is one of the last old L'Agulhas homes. It has a true fisherman cottage feel about it and is situated only 30 m from the ocean. It is near the lovely and historical "Soldiers Pool" in the Mount Pleasant area.
Rus 'n Bietjie is a rustic little home with painted cement floors. Due to it's age, the house has quite some character as some of the door frames are from old boats and thus quite low. There are three double bedrooms - one room with a double bed and the others with single beds. The bathroom has a toilet, washbasin and bath. There is no shower.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a four-plate stove and oven, a microwave, fridge-freezer combination, a toaster and all the utensils you will need. Tea and coffee with rusks is provided, as well as washing liquid. The kitchen also has lovely sea views. The sitting room and dining room have a small library and TV, and if you bring you own decoder, you can have DStv as there is a dish connected.
The most popular area is probably the large under cover verandah and braai area overlooking the ocean. Not only does one see the ships going to and from Cape Town, but whales and dolphins are often seen from here. The hammock on the verandah adds some comfort to your sea experience. The house is fully enclosed and pet friendly.
Beach: The property is located across the road from the beach.
