Don't despair if you were hoping to stay in the old Driftwood Cottage which is now closed, Linda and Paul have other cottage, Gumtree Cottage, just down the road from the old Driftwood Cottage which is also hugely popular and can accommodate more guests.

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 seven people. There's a lounge, dining area alongside the kitchen with a wood-burning "donkey" for chilly winter nights, a large kitchen, two double bedrooms, a walk-through kiddies' bedroom with two single beds, and an extra bed in the lounge. There's  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 gum tree, and some surprises in the garden. There's also a portable braai for outside living, and seats and table under the gumtree. 

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!
