Elands Bay is a town situated about two and a half hours drive north of Cape Town. This quiet fishing village was named a provincial heritage site as it is well known for its caves, which are filled with historic rock paintings. The Baboon Point cliffs are home to Bobbejaansberg, where excavations show that this area was inhabited by humans more than 15 000 years ago. Elands Bay is also a great spot for surfing and fishing, taking you far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The name ‘langhuis’ is derived from the shape of the building, which was built in one singular line.
