Rooisee is one of three ancient forestry homesteads on the farm yzerfontein on the West Coast …and only 20 metres from the dune at 16 mile beach!
It nestles peacefully between Yzerfontein (a short drive from Cape Town) and the West Coast National Park. The dune is part of the cottage’s private property and highly protected by National Parks
The cottage has superbly been restored and decorated in West Coast fisherman style. The choice of in linen, furnishings, amenities, art, floors and outside socializing areas all create an old romantic and stylish unique beach experience
A “kuier-deck” will soon be erected on the dune with picturesque 360 degree views of the 16 mile beach and a small island a few hundred meters from the breakers
The dune offers unique privacy and shelter from the west coast wind. On one side is the beach on the other side there is a huge salt pan that shields the cottage from the larger farm. This pan is protected and home to hundreds of pink flamingos, mainly in the winter and spring months.
…and there is plenty to do for families mountain bikers, horse enthusiasts, hikers, joggers, wine tasters and wind sports lovers… not to mention bird and plant lovers.
