Moon Cape Cottage is 20 km from Caledon outside the village ofTesselaarsdal, on the Hermanus road. It has spectacular views in all directions; to the west is the Hemel en Aarde valley, with the Hottentots Holland in the distance, to the North is Shaws mountain, and the west the Riviersonderend mountains roll into the distance.

A tranquil and rejuvenating retreat; the arch windows and feature lights create a spiritual atmosphere, ideal for finding peace so close yet so far from the city.

The space
The cottage has a unique view, encapsulating the best of the Hemel en Aarde Valley with spectacular views of Shaws Mountain, Caledon Mountain And the Riviersonderend mountains in the distance. Fish Eagles, Buzzards, swallows and a wide variety of smaller birds are abundant. Please beware and be aware of the very special "padloper" tortoises. The stars are spectacular on a clear night as no town or city lights are visible from the property. There is a minor gravel road along the property with virtually no traffic. The peace is all surrounding and spectacular, with the night sounds including crickets, frogs, night jars and owls, and day time sounds including Fish Eagle and Buzzard calls. This is an ideal space for a spiritual or work retreat, peace of mind is guaranteed and is contained or enhanced by the artistic lights and arch windows. The vegetation is endangered Rhenosterbos, with the most incredible diverse fynbos distributed all along the Hermanus - Stanford mountain range above the village - details below - You will love it!!

Guest access
There is a 1km hiking - bicycle track on the property and a variety of walks and cycle options are available to the guest, all in walking distance from the cottage. Contact die Poskantoor restaurant in Tesselaarsdal for permits and details.

Other things to note
The hiking trails and MBT trails in the area will allow you to explore the awesome fynbos in the Mountains behind Tesselaarsdal (South) which are beautiful and home to many endemic species (There are 5 endemic plants growing on Shaws mountain - North of the cottage)
