Pelican Post

Situated on the estuary of the Berg River in Velddrif, this converted, traditional fisherman’s home is the perfect spot for a quiet and peaceful weekend away. Although this self-catering cottage can accommodate nine guests comfortably (including two en-suite rooms), it’s still a cosy and idyllic location for a smaller group or a couple seeking an escape from busy city life. An ideal spot for bird watchers, Velddrif and its surrounding areas (Paternoster is a mere 30-minute drive) offer plenty to do, from boat rides and kayaking to nature parks and art galleries. There’s bound to be something to keep you entertained. Just make sure you don’t leave home without a pair of binoculars, a bird guide and a hearty appetite for fresh seafood.
