The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering. The cabin is also pet-friendly, had has access to a private beach.

This rustic cabin couldn’t be in a better location. Lovers can stroll hand in hand along the private beach, old friends can enjoy their evening drink while watching flamingoes fly over the salt pan. If you tire of the beach and the glorious views, you can always take a stroll to the Strandkombuis restaurant or Die Stal pub to enjoy some local hospitality. Kids will enjoy playing on the dunes, going to the harbour, racing along the Mountain bike loop or visiting the nearby Lion Park.

      Our stay at Captain’s Cabin was fantastic. Esther was very helpful and accommodating. Christine was an absolute gem. We had a beautiful wedding and our some of our guests are planning to use the venue for functions in the future. A unique location with such beautiful scenery. Everything you need is conveniently close, but yet you feel like you are in your own little world.

      The Cabin was lovely inside, it was quiet, private and there was everything we needed. The facilities was really great and still in good condition. It was also nice to have easy access to the beach.
