Surfing is often good at the point. Sandown beach is a short 300 meter stroll away from your accommodation.

Kelp forests and large intertidal rock pools (40 meters from 'Die Rotse' Self Catering Accommodation) provide food and safety for fish and other marine animals (Cape Fur Seal colony) - a natural and safe 'swimming pool' where kids can learn about the sea and the beautiful eco-system of living sea organisms. This is where the '1st fish you catch, catches you' applies.

The coastline offers rock and surf angling, snorkel diving, kayak fishing, spear fishing and catching West Coast Lobster (crayfish) subject to local fishing regulations. Permits can be obtained from the local post office. The area also offers various safe slipway's and harbours for easy access to the ocean by small boat.

The site has been declared a Nature Reserve and visitors are urged to keep to the convenient wooden boardwalk when observing penguins, Cape Cormorant, the rare African Black Oystercatcher and other sea birds in their natural habitat.

Visit the Harold Porter National Botanical Garden in Betty's Bay to discover thousands of plant species found nowhere else on earth. The garden encompasses mountain slopes with wind-clipped heathlands, deep gorges with indigenous forests, marches,wetlands vibrant with restios and seasonal bulbs and even includes a dunescape with specialised salt-adapted plants. The expansive garden is ideal for hiking in the nearly 200 hectare natural estate and caters to the whole family - enjoy leisurely strolls and picnics at the waterfalls, amber pools and manicured lawn and gardens within the 10-hectare cultivated section.

We spent 5 days at Dierotse. Very impressed. The establishment is superbly and thoughtfully run. The host is friendly, helpful and genuinely entertaining. The flat is clean and has all the necessities provided which an international traveler would wish for in the way of internet, adaptors etc. Although we are just a couple needing only a one bedroom flat, we will be quite happy to rent the 3-bedroom again as we have really enjoyed our holiday thanks to Dierostse and its host. The host philosophy bears it out:
You come as a paying guest and you leave as a friend.

Superb. 5 out of 5

I stayed there for a couple of days in July. Weather was great and although it was a bit nippy the warm welcome of the host will always make you feel at home. What makes this place so great is the view of the ocean which you can enjoy the whole day with a cup of tea or coffee in the morning till the crack of a cold one or wine when the sun goes down. Not to mention how close it is to the shops, only a quick 5-10 min. walk up the street. Room space is no problem, big and spacious with some of the

Thank you most sincerely for your very kind and generous hospitality, you have a truly wonderful place and so well positioned. We have been very taken with Kleinmond and even may consider it a possible destination to retire to one day.
Thank you also for your advice, we will certainly heed it.
Very best wishes for your continued good health.
Regards
Mick and Penny.

I travel extensively with my family for holiday - primarily the Western and Eastern Cape regions.

To-date the 'Die Rotse' establishment has been the most perfect for my family. My kids enjoyed themselves in the expansive grounds of the property - and to the nearby beach and rocks outlook. you are literally less than 2 minutes away from the sea!

We also invited our friends (a large family with children) over for a Braai - they were so impressed with the establishment - I'm sure they will also book themselves in when next in Kleinmond/Hermanus.

Lastly, the host - Werner Pauw, is fun to be with - he has great stories to tell and valuable insights into the commercial-economic-political landscape of the African continent having travelled and worked in various countries in the continent.

We are definitely staying with them when next we visit the Kleinmond/Hermanus/Gansbaai area!
