The Berries is a rustic timber cabin, built from recycled material. The cabin is situated in the last cul-de-sac on the South side of Elands Bay, closest to Baboon Point and bordering the dune reserve on the beach. This is the quiet and private corner of Elands Bay, which enjoys the most wind shelter, being the closest to the mountain.
The timber log Cottage faces the mountain, with a view of the beach and sunset over the ocean. The cottage faces away from the South-Easter, opening onto a large timber deck, indigenous garden and outdoor firepit under the stars.
With 2 Bedrooms and a separate Sleeping Alcove, the cottage comfortably sleeps 8 persons. Open plan Kitchen, Dining and Livingroom. Family Bathroom includes a bath and a large Shower. Outdoor Shower allows for rinsing off when returning from the beach.
Full bedding provided, bring your own towels.

I am an Architect, carpenter & builder. My passion is realizing architectural solutions with green design & building principles foremost in mind.
I am an avid ocean lover, surfer, sailor, wavesailer, fisherman & volunteer Sea Rescue crewmember.
I have been enjoying Elands Bay & the wild West Coast surrounds since childhood.
The Berries was built by my own hand, entirely from recycled materials. The house is a continual work in progress. I feel most fortunate to be in a position to share the Berries with visitors, that they too, might enjoy the wonders of the Cape West Coast.
