About Rocky Pools

Rocky Pools is a tastefully designed beach house boasting unobstructed views and an uncluttered interior befitting the ideal beach holiday. As the name suggests, Rocky Pools is protected from the ocean by a buffer of jagged rock pools and coastal fynbos vegetation. A short stroll to the left leads to Penguin Point and its population of quirky birds, while an amble to the right lands you on Betty’s long moody beach.

The prime setting is enhanced with a shady verandah equipped with lime-washed furniture, and a sheltered barbecue area built around the local rock. Stepping through the wide glass sliding doors, the interior is spotless and the fittings and fabrics tastefully co-ordinated. Persian rugs, down lighting, DStv and a dishwasher lend a definite luxurious touch.

The main bedrooms are en-suite and have wide ocean views from their queen-size beds, while the open-plan living area is spacious and conducive to a very sociable weekend, combining a lime-washed country kitchen, a long dining table and comfy couches set around a massive hearth for those dark and stormy nights.

Activities in the area include the Harold Porter Botanical Garden with its walking trails and tea garden, Stony Point penguin colony, a sure-fire winner with children, and the Kogelberg Nature Reserve offering a number of hiking trails and incorporating both coastline and mountain terrain. In addition, the Palmiet River and lagoon lie at the heart of the Kleinmond Coastal Reserve and are a good site for swimming and canoeing.

Beach: Located within walking distance from the beach.

      Beautiful house in a dream setting. The perfect way to relax away from the city.

      Our stay was lovely. There really isn't anything that they could've done to make it any better. Michelle is lovely and assisted us quite late in the evening when we had a minor issue with the alarm. The house is really nicely designed and maintained very well. The view is also amazing and the penguins are walking distance.

      First and foremost, please let me say that my family and I enjoyed our stay at Rocky Pools. The view off of the spacious back porch and the warmth of the fireplace at night were indeed charming. The house is well-designed and spacious - our family of 5 fit brilliantly. The owner was gracious and polite about our arrival and assisted when the alarm went off.However, there are a few matters that could be improved. The cleanliness level of the home was simply unacceptable upon our arrival. The washing machine was dirty, the floors were not mopped, and the sheets on the beds were a bit damp. The...
