Gumtree Cottage self-catering accommodation

Cosy, pet-friendly self-catering accommodation
with stunning views just down the road from
Driftwood Cottage in Napier, Western Cape

Don't despair if Driftwood Cottage is booked out or is too small to accommodate a larger group of guests.
Linda and Paul now have another artistically renovated self-catering cottage just down the road from Driftwood Cottage.

Gumtree Cottage sits all alone on a large 2,200 sq m plot of land with absolutely stunning views both north over Napier towards the Sonderend Mountains and west into the Overberg sunsets.

The cottage is quaint, cosy, quirky,
very comfortable, and sleeps up to six people. There's a lounge, TV nook - there's a wood-burning "donkey" for chilly winter nights, a large kitchen, two double bedrooms, a walk-through kiddies' bedroom with two single beds, a full bathroom with old-fashioned bath, a second bathroom with shower and toilet; and three patios, all covered. The main patio looks north and west, there's a back porch, which is protected from the north-westerlies, and a small "Juliet" balcony facing north where two people can sit and soak up the winter sun. There's an entertainment area under the gumtree, an olive orchard and some surprises in the garden. There's also a Weber braai for outside living, and seats and table under the gumtree. 

Like Driftwood Cottage, Gumtree Cottage is close enough to main street to just park your car and walk almost everywhere in the village.

It all adds up to a perfect getaway to rest, relax, and take in the charm of Napier!
