About Samhitakasha - The Cob House
Welcome to a unique setting. We offer a beautiful family home built out of organic materials such as mud, straw and wood. It is finished with natural sealants, eco-friendly paints and lots of love. Here you can relax in a room furnished with natural and organic materials, take a shower heated by the sun and soon recycled in the garden, and enjoy a full organic breakfast.
The guest accommodation, with its own private entrance, consists of a spacious triple bedroom with an en-suite shower and ablution facilities. The main bedroom has a luxury queen-size bed and there is also a single futon bed that is suitable for an additional adult. Linen, curtains, mattresses and towels have all been made from natural and organic or recycled materials. The room features views of the mountains. There is access to the garden which includes an outside fireplace, and off-street parking is available.
The house is situated 200 m from Muizenberg Beach, which is a perfect beach to learn to surf as well as a family swimming beach. There are many other family facilities behind the beachfront, including water slides and putt-putt courses. Muizenberg has many shops, including organic grocery shops, restaurants, surf schools and performance venues. It is one of the most diverse and interesting communities in the Cape.
The house is also 200 m from Zandvlei which is home to the Cape Town International Kite Festival in spring, as well as water sports and plenty of bird life. We are a five-minute walk from the False Bay Train Station, which has regular connections to central Cape Town and to other resort towns along the Cape Peninsula. The Muizenberg section of the Table Mountain Range has spectacular hiking and caving opportunities, and can be reached within a 10-minute walk. Within a half an hour walk, you could reach Kalk Bay with its popular attractions via St. James, which features a wonderful and safe tidal pool for swimmers of all ages.

I was drawn to this home while browsing for a place to stay while in my office on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. I was not disappointed and enjoyed my five-night stay, which begun with a 00:30 arrival (thanks KLM). I was none the less graciously received.

I wanted to be close to the beach and I love the walk along the coast to Kalk Bay and exploring the lovely coastline to Simonstown. I arrived to a light mist and the sound of the sea from my room - magic! The room and my... see more
Back to the future, and it's green... With a warm welcome from the Yarrow family, our overnight experience did not tick the usual boring B&B boxes: cream and beige interior, fake art, uniformity.
