About Ambre Cottage

Ambre Cottage is a rustic little unit offering a long open sitting room containing a dining table, two single beds and table, stove, fridge and cooking facilities. It opens out to a front porch overlooking a green belt, Dawids Kraal, and the blue sea.

The cottage is extremely private, with its own driveway and at a fair distance from the main house, under a large filao tree. The front porch is very sheltered from the South Easter and barbecue facilities can be provided. Between the cottage and main house is a garden displaying a large wisteria and many proteas, pin-cushions, Erica, and Restios.

The road meanders down to a large vlei, which in turn offers other paths down to the Betty's Bay main beach - most invigorating for a good evening walk. A path from the house leads down next to the Dawids Kraal River to a popular picnic spot and a good fishing beach, as well as the main beach. Looking back one can see Ambre house and cottage tucked below the mountain.

      The cottage is essentially one large room with a shower & loo attached. It is however, well situated and has all the necessary facilities for a short stay. Darryl was a friendly and helpful host which was greatThe view from the front stoep is lovely - fynbos and sea with very few neighbours near by. There are several excellent walks in the vicinity and it is close to Harold Porter Nature Reserve.A good venue of 2 people for a short stay

      Darryl was an amazing host allowing us to bring along our fur babies. Such a special place with the sun rising over the ocean and the sounds of frogs and crickets lulling you to sleep! The perfect antidote to city life loved every moment and I can't wait to go back.

      It would have been a much nicer stay if the place had been cleaned. Lots of dust and cobwebs. Pity because this could be a nice place in a great location.

      Easy to find, central location in Bettys Bay with beautiful view of the sea. Easy access via footpath to sea. Accommodation more on the rustic side, but not lacking in anything. Nice to have a full stove with oven and large fridge available.
