Coot Club Boathouses

Coot Club is located in Stanford, a small town in the Western Cape, just 2 hours from Cape Town. Coot Club has two boathouses , the Port Boathouse and Starboard Boathouse. Both boathouses have stunning views across the lagoon to the awe-inspiring Maanschynkop mountains. With a nod to the sailing fraternities; the Boathouses, Port and Starboard, are beautiful maritime-themed homes perfect for relaxed holidays on the water.

There are various accommodation options available at Coot Club with two different offerings; The Boathouses and the Stone Cottages.

The Boathouses are located along the lagoon shoreline with stunning views across the lagoon to the awe-inspiring Maanschynkop mountains. They are nautically inspired and, with the choice between a 2 or 3 bedroom Boathouse, are ideal for families or groups of friends. Each Boathouse has a spacious and airy open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen with a fireplace and bedrooms leading off this space. Fold-away doors open up completely with stairs leading down to a grassed area and the fynbos beyond. There is no space to braai/bbq at the Boathouse because of the proximity to the fynbos.

The Starboard Boathouse is a 2-bedroomed unit that sleeps 4 adults and 2 children and the Port Boathouse is a 3-bedroomed unit that sleeps 6 adults and 2 children.

Guests staying at the boathouses can take part in many different activities such as nature walks, water activities, quad biking and fat biking or even go take a walk at the Walker Bay beach.

If you are looking for something different, have a look at the Coot Club Stone Cottages.
