Discover our home in Arniston, a secret destination only two hours from Cape Town. Pirates Landing is one of the original houses which was built as a fishing cottage for a local farmer. We purchased the house in 2006 but our family have been holidaying here for generations. The house was rebuilt in 2015 in accordance with Heritage guidelines and on the same footprint as the original home. On the outside it is a quaint thatched cottage with a stone wall. The inside is modern and light, making the most of the views across magnificent turquoise bay. Our home has 5 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. There is a sitting room downstairs with a wood burning stove and beautiful views and another lounge/TV room upstairs for the noisier teens or children. Preparing food in the kitchen is a delight as one’s eyes wonder to the aquamarine bay and dunes in the distance. We have an indoor braai in the kitchen where you can braai when it is raining or windy. There is also an outdoor firepit with a view over the ocean. The house has a pool in a private courtyard. This is an unusual feature in the area. Access to the beach is 50m walk from our gate. The beach directly in front of our home is called Nanny’s Beach as it is perfect for young children to swim and explore rock pools. A five minute walk south is Roman Beach where the waves are bigger and suitable for surfing and bodyboarding. Another swimming spot is Kassiesbaai Beach which is on the other side of Kassiesbaai fishing village. There are beautiful dune and beach walks, fishing, visits to Cape Agulhas or De Mond Nature reserve. You may never want to leave….
