This 100 year old limestone cottage is situated on the banks of the Goukou River in the town of Still Bay within walking distance to the main beach and river mouth - loads of character with a stunning views.
Character and rustic finishes with the river lapping at the garden wall at high tide. A typical old style holiday home. Boats can be moored at anchor in front of the house at high tide and in the channel when the tide has gone out.
Can comfortably fit 8 people - one bedroom has 3 single beds and there is a bed in the TV room.
Guest have access to a fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher, gas stove, fridge/deepfreeze & a washing machine, three bedrooms, bathroom [shower], TV room with DVD player, sitting-room with fireplace and outside 'braai' area.
Cupboards marked private are off limits as is the garage and two outside storage rooms.
No amenities are shared as the entire house is rented.
Via phone or email - I do not live close by but do have people who can react to emergencies if and when they may arise.
I will not be present during my guest's stay.
Pristine beaches that can be walked on for kilometres at low tide - the swimming beach is a blue status beach with life guards during the busy summer months.
As the house is situated in a residential area the neighbours needs to be taken into account regarding noise and music which might disturb the peace - no fire crackers are to be set off from the property either - respect for nature must also be observed.
This is a smoke free house - if guests do smoke I strongly recommend that it is done outside.
Minimum of two nights stay.

I have lived in Franschhoek for 7 years and in the area for 30.
I enjoy gardening, reading, my pets and hiking.
I look forward to being your host and hope that you have an enjoyable stay at Oakside.
I do own a number of cats and dogs which you might be aware of from time to time but are totally separate from your section of the house.
Look forward to meeting you!
