The beautiful scenery and clean beaches. Very safe area and not overrun with people. Excellent for fishing, cycling and hiking. The Arniston Cave is a must to visit!
The close proximity to the ocean is amazing.
The beach is stunning. The cave is an impressive sight.
Neatness and quietness of the space.
The staff was e excellent
Friendly staff and great location.
The harbour and beach is within walking distance. Willeen's Restaurant and Mien's Tea Garden was excellent. We were safe and the locals were so friendly and welcoming.
Quiet and unspoilt!
We stayed at N3 seaside Cottage. What a peaceful break away. We often stay in the big seaside cottages. We would really like to recommend they give each cottage a good deep clean and have a look at replacing the stove tops (N3) was badly rusted and completely cracked. The house was in good shape just really needs very good cleaning after each stay. (spider webs on roofs, behind doors etc).(let it have the smell of a cleaned place).
We will for sure be back soon.
Thank you 👍
It was peaceful and quiet
Sea and peaceful.
More info about Arniston
Once a quaint fishermen’s village where descendants of South Africa’s first nation, the Khoisan people, and several freed slaves settled to live off the plentiful bounty of seafood available along this stretch of the Western Cape coastline, Arniston has graduated into a fashionable holiday resort.
The area is renowned for the fishermen cottages, the ancient sea cave and the wreck that occurred here in the early 1800s, leaving only 6 survivors of the 378 passengers and crew. The village was subsequently named after the wreck.
Arniston is enjoyed by artists and photographers who are presented with a spectacular scene of old fishermen cottages standing starkly against a backdrop of surrounding natural beauty, and with fishermen and water sports enthusiasts for the excellent fishing opportunities and the challenging seas.

About Guest Houses
For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
