About Rus 'n Bietjie L'Agulhas

Built in 1938, Rus 'n Bietjie is one of the last old L'Agulhas homes. It has a true fisherman cottage feel about it and is situated only 30 m from the ocean. It is near the lovely and historical "Soldiers Pool" in the Mount Pleasant area.

Rus 'n Bietjie is a rustic little home with painted cement floors. Due to it's age, the house has quite some character as some of the door frames are from old boats and thus quite low. There are three double bedrooms - one room with a double bed and the others with single beds. The bathroom has a toilet, washbasin and bath. There is no shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a four-plate stove and oven, a microwave, fridge-freezer combination, a toaster and all the utensils you will need. Tea and coffee with rusks is provided, as well as washing liquid. The kitchen also has lovely sea views. The sitting room and dining room have a small library and TV, and if you bring you own decoder, you can have DStv as there is a dish connected.

The most popular area is probably the large under cover verandah and braai area overlooking the ocean. Not only does one see the ships going to and from Cape Town, but whales and dolphins are often seen from here. The hammock on the verandah adds some comfort to your sea experience. The house is fully enclosed and pet friendly.

Beach: The property is located across the road from the beach.

Rus 'n Bietjie is a rustic Fisherman's Cottage - as such, the accommodation/facilities/amenities were/are in keeping with that theme. It was PERFECT for us & our dogs - we were so glad to find this accommodation as it is walled to keep our dogs safe & which keeps children safe too. Everything that is provided is ample - you have fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, stove, crockery, cutlery, bedding & bath towels provided, 3 bedrooms, separate bathroom, separate kitchen, separate lounge, even an electric washing machine & iron etc. I guess you'd just need to bring your beach towels, food &...

We had a great time at Rus 'n Bietjie. The house has everything you need and we loved the stoop with the beautiful view over the sea. A big thank you to the owners, Anna-Marie and Gert who drove al the way from Struisbaai to Caledon to pick us up when our car broke down. And then they even gave us their car until ours was repaired. You are awesome! We will definitely be back!! xx

We had a great vacation. Our main criteria was a pet friendly place near the seaside. The location and stunning views are an absolute bonus. Being able to sit and watch the waves from the stoep is ideal to relax and unwind. We just missed having a shower but we understand that the historical essence of the old fisherman's cottage needs to be maintained.
