Welcome to Onrus Cottage – a charming and modern self-catering cottage situated on a quiet crescent in Onrus River. We are just a 90 minute drive from Cape Town and 15 minutes from popular Hermanus. The cottage has high ceilings and an open plan living and kitchen area with DStv and a fireplace. The large front veranda has views of the mountain and the back door opens out onto a spacious garden with a barbeque area and an outdoor shower. There is an unlimited supply of free firewood. There is off-street parking under a car port with an electric gate. The house has a high wall and a burglar alarm, making it secure. There is free WiFi and we provide bedding and bath towels. Onrus Cottage offers a wealth of local attractions in the surrounding area. This is a special part of the world with so much to see and do. From whale spotting and kayaking to wine tasting, hiking, mountain biking, shopping and more. The beach is a 10 minute drive and the Hemel & Aarde Valley is a mere 10 minutes away and is home to 15 boutique wineries.
I have lived in England, the USA and eventually settled in South Africa. As an appreciator of good wine, a keen cyclist and a water lover, Onrus was my first choice to spend my leisure time. My parents live in Hermanus.
Onrus is an ideal holiday spot and the ocean is refreshing in the hot summer months. Nearby Onrus lagoon is warmer and is ideal for children to swim in. The lagoon and beach offer showers, cloakrooms and a restaurant right on the beach making this a friendly spot for holidaymakers. The beach is long and sandy, and perfect for picnics, suntanning and playing games. It is also a favourite surfing and body boarding spot. There are also many child friendly tidal pools on this beautiful stretch of coastline. The cliff path is a long and a relaxing walk or run all the way to nearby Vermont Nature Reserve which boasts one of the most undisturbed beaches in the area. Between September and January, the whales make their way past this coastline. The entire area is surrounded by impressive mountains as well as hundreds of species of the spectacular fynbos that is endemic to this country. This means that the views are almost always breath-taking and are only a short drive or walk away. If you that have a passion for the outdoors, there are a number of walking, hiking, horse riding and cycling trails within close proximity to Onrus Cottage.
