Accommodation Heidelberg

On the banks of the Duivenshok River on the southern coast of South Africa, lies a sleepy little hamlet called Vermaaklikheid. A special hideaway untouched by time and “progress”. A place where one can escape from the pressures of modern living and where body and soul can be restored.

We offer three beautiful, fully equipped, self catering cottages, for nature lovers and adventurers. The rustic facilities are thoughtful and tasteful to provide simple comfortable and easy holiday living. The unique architecture is in keeping with the indigenous buildings of this charming little hamlet.

The Duivenshok Estuary and its surrounds is one of the last remaining pristine estuaries in South Africa. The Duivenshok Conservancy has been established to preserve its unique character.
