Welcome to Cactus Lodge. A spacious 5 bedroom, fully-equipped, self catering accommodation in Betty's Bay. Nestled between the Kogelberg Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, the lodge lies between two fresh water lakes which are part of the Grootwitvlei Bird Sanctuary. This is a bird lover's paradise with weavers and sunbirds making a colourful display. Only an hour's drive from Cape Town, Betty's Bay is a picturesque seaside village situated along the scenic Clarence Drive Route between Pringle Bay and Kleinmond. The town falls within the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, the smallest but richest in variety of the six floral kingdoms in the world.

Betty's Bay is home to a colony of Jackass penguins which reside at Stony Point. Here visitors can watch these fascinating birds in their natural environment. One of the great attractions of Betty's Bay is the beautiful, unspoilt beaches. Silversands and Hangklip dunes lie to the west of Stony Point offering a beach of over 4km and great kite surfing opportunities. The beach is also good for picnics, swimming and surfing. Main Beach in Betty's Bay is a popular surfing destination. However, Jock's Bay and Shelley Beach offer better paddling and shell collecting for kids. Sporting and leisure activities in and around Betty's Bay, include: Kayaking, mountain trails and hikes, sandboarding, horse riding, fising, snorkeling and scuba diving, whale watching, golf and a beauty and health spa at the Arabella.

At Cactus Lodge, you have an ideally situated, comfortable and welcoming base from which to explore and enjoy all that Betty's Bay has to offer. Cactus Lodge provides self-catering accommodation for up to 12 people. It is ideal for a romantic getaway, a relaxing family holiday, a group of friends wishing to reconnect or for corporate motivational groups. The living, dining and kitchen area are open plan. The living area is spacious and furnished with comfortable couches and a dining room table that can be extended to seat 8 people. The kitchen is fully-equipped including fridge, oven, hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, all crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.

There are 5 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Bedding is provided. Please bring own towels and additional blankets if required. The upstairs living and entertainment area has a TV and a library for you to enjoy during your stay. The living area opens onto a spacious sundeck with spectacular views of the surrounding lakes and mountains. In summer, wake to a chorus of birds chirping in the reeds, open the sliding doors onto a very private courtyard and enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Alternatively, get comfortable on one of the sun loungers, stretch out with a good book and soak up the sun. Sip sundowners on the upstairs balcony while you absorb the peacefulness and tranquility of nature. In the evenings, enjoy a braai under a starlit sky in the courtyard. On Winter evenings, take the edge off a chilly evening and build a cosy fire in the living area. Enjoy all that Betty's Bay has to offer from the comfort and privacy of Cactus Lodge.

We celebrated our daughter's 21st with a few of her and our friends at Cactus Lodge. As a family we have not been away in years, and were so excited for the weekend! It is rare to find accommodation for 12 people at a reasonable rate and Cactus lodge was beyond our expectations! The pics did not do the house justice at all. It is spacious, well equipped, cozy and comfortable. We could all easily fit in the kitchen area or upstairs. The bonus was that the youngsters could have the back rooms to themselves while we relaxed in the living areas at night. We will most definitely be returning at some stage, and can highly recommend a trip to Cactus Lodge. Thanks guys!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time together at the lodge and the kids especially loved the loft space upstairs....we hardly saw them but the sound of their continuous and contagious laughter certainly brought smiles to our faces. The lodge is comfortably large and accommodating yet at the same time communal and cozy. The day trips to the beach, exploring nearby towns, then returning to the lodge for some relaxation, good food and great company, made our stay a memorable one. We will be returning soon for more of the same, with some more of our clan. Thanks to the owners and our very gracious host. 😊👌
