Fully equipped self-catering units provide comfortable, stylish accommodation. We are only 12 minutes from Hermanus and about 1 hour from Cape Town on the way to the Garden Route.
All units are close to the lake; just cross the footbridge to the beach.
Exclusive, Peaceful, Private, Secure, the Estate is not open to the general public.
Set along the edge of the lake amongst park-like gardens or in the Milkwood forest, you will hear only birds, the sea & the wind. It's a lot like some of the National Parks rest camps.
Some of our units are on the water's edge; some have sea or lake views; some are in the milkwood forest - all are charming.
Flamingo Lake is graded 3-star and "Highly Recommended" by the AA. We have avoided the rather clinical and impersonal look of many establishments, and each one has been carefully decorated and furnished to give a warm and homely atmosphere. Here are a few of the many compliments recorded in our guest books:
*** We came all the way from the UK to find ourselves so much at home here!
*** What a superb stay.
*** Thank you for making us feel so much at home.
*** A wonderful setting and first class accommodation.
*** A gem of a find in a tranquil setting; unspoiled yet with everything one needs.
Attractions / Things to do
|We are close to all attractions of Hermanus, and if you need a bit of real luxury, the Arabella country club is only 5 km away across the water!|
But this is real laid-back stuff. There is a huge beach (15km long, unspoiled and virtually deserted), some small game (if you are lucky), about a 5km walk through the estate and around the edge of the lake, and best of all, you can just laze around in your own private garden.
If you want to get out and get going, this is an ideal base for exploring the Overberg.
*** See our website "Plan your own trip" where we suggest a stack of things to do, and have negotiated special discounts (up to 20%)for our guests with tour operators, wine farms and others. There's much too much to list them all here, from Nature trails to shark diving to museums . . .
|Services / Facilities|
|Your unit will contain everything you need for a self-catering holiday. All bedding is provided (but please bring your own towels unless you are travelling for far away). There is a swimming pool and tennis courts. Each unit has a TV and all the kitchen appliances you are likely to want, and really good quality kitchenware and crockery. |
|Prices as of September 2005 are around R450,00 per night for 2 people sharing, and about R100,00 per night for each additional person. No unit can take more than 6 people, and quite a few are for 2 people only, for those romantic week-ends!|
Watch out for our winter specials, where we might offer up to 20% discount.
We don't take booking of less than 2 nights (3 nights over long weekends and 14 nights over the Christmas holidays), and require a deposit of 50% of the total amount in order to confirm a booking.
|Don't even think of trying to find the place without contacting us. We are not far off the beaten track, but we are very well hidden and you won't find us without the detailed instructions we will provide once your reservation is confirmed.|
You can be sure of a warm welcome at Flamingo Lake.
