Of all our Churchhaven properties in the West Coast National Park, this is the closest to the beach, and it has awesome views of the absolutely beautiful blue lagoon. It really is a much-loved family beach cottage full of quaint vintage treasures. It has a very laid-back East African influence – the only shoes you will want to put on are your Havaianas, and your most important piece of clothing will be a kikoi (Kenyan sarong).
Spend your days keeping out of the midday sun, gazing at that blue, blue lagoon and watching the sailing, kayaking and fishing, or take long walks in the reserve, make sandcastles and explore by bicycle.
Being off the grid is just such a treat as you can either use the gas stove or BBQ (the fridge is electric and runs off the solar power) or light all the candles and settle in for the evenings to enjoy the stars.
If you have never visited the West Coast of the Cape before you are really in for a surprise: the colours and beauty of the reserve, the fynbos wild flowers in Spring, the quietness and solitude, and the pristine waters of the lagoon, all just an hour out of Cape Town. This is a local-secret haven away from the madness of busy lifestyles.

What we loved most about Seagull Cottage is the large patio overlooking the lagoon. The proximity to the beach was great! We also enjoyed the fact that you’re able to spend time on the ocean side or back of the cottage which gave us different options to still be outside even though the wind was blowing! The rooms and bedding were also very comfortable. There was a lady in the morning to open for us and she was lovely and very helpful. We can’t wait to head back to Churchhaven another time!
We loved our stay, thank you and thanks to the owners of the Cottage. It was deeply relaxing and the beauty amazed us. The house was equipped with all we needed and styled very well. We really enjoyed the birds in the mornings and evenings, especially our young son!
"We had a great stay in seagull cottage! I am sure we will be back to stay at the house in the future!" - LODEWIJK HENRY
We had a great time at Seagull and everything was perfect. We could not have had a better time. Sandy was fantastic and we really appreciated her daily visits. She was always so welcoming and personable.
Thank you for allowing us to share your delightful Seagull Cottage. Our foreign guests were completely bowled over. We particularly enjoyed the solitude, peace and quiet and especially the thousands of Flamingos. Being in a National Park we felt very safe at all times. The cottage is compact, cosy and well appointed. With your permission we would love to stay there again many times in future!
We really enjoyed our stay at Seagull Cottage and would love to go back again one day. I do think it is one of the best cottages in Churchhaven…full stop. We had great weather for June and so enjoyed living out on the beautiful stoep overlooking the lagoon and all its birdlife.
Our stay at Seagull was heavenly! We loved the place - so cosy and well stocked with that magical view. Sweet little birds visiting us on the stoep each day, flamingos in the distance and beautiful turquoise waters to enjoy. Was wonderful. The late check out was just SUCH a perk - thank you. That just took the pressure off on Sunday so that we could enjoy the morning. I have already recommended the place to about three other families. Many thanks and hope to make another booking soon.
We all had a lovely time at Seagull cottage. It was an amazing opportunity to spend time at a serene and unspoilt location. Each of us loved it for different reasons which made it a perfect choice.
"Seagull Cottage was just perfect. I just wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks again and we will certainly be back. "

“We had an absolutely spectacular time. I've stayed in a number of your houses in Churchhaven and I thought Whaler’s Way was my favourite, but Seagull Cottage is really unbelievable. My family fell in love with it too and we will be back.”
We had a wonderful time thank you very much! The sunshine was present and our boys has a fabulous time running on the beach all day.
We had an awesome time – thank you. The cottage was so comfortable and well appointed Will definitely be back again!
We had a truly wonderful time at Seagull and Fynbos. It was just great to see my family lazily playing on the beach for hours and all so happy. We all did a lot of walking in those beautiful surroundings and the stars at night were superb. All in all a perfect place to catch up with my family.
It was absolutely wonderful! I don’t think my parents have enjoyed a place as much as they have enjoyed the house and Churchhaven. And Roy has been an absolute star
Seagull Cottage was absolutely gorgeous and we hope to return very soon! Thank you!!!
We had a wonderful stay at Seagull. Thank you for fitting us in at the last minute! Having been overseas last year we have been missing our regular trips to Churchaven! We met Roy and Leon who were super nice and helpful.
What a special place – we all had a magical time. Many thanks again – it was a pleasure to use Perfect hideaways !

We had a lovely weekend in Churchhaven.
We had the most wonderful wkend at seagulls!
“We had the most amazing time ever. Churchhaven has got to be the best-kept secret of the West Coast, and I hope that we have left a good impression too so we can come back soon! Your service was impeccable, the house had everything we needed and more (this is sometimes such a let-down for us when we go self-catering and also reason why we take our entire kitchen with us!!!!). We will only go with your properties in the future and I hope that we have the time to do these getaways more often!”
Ons het ń fantastiese tyd gehad!. Churchaven en Seagull Cottage gaan werklik spesiale herinneringe vir ons inhou.
The weekend at Churchhaven was awesome! We could not have asked for better weather and Seagull Cottage was charming and comfortable. Thank you and we will be booking again soon.
We had a marvellous weekend at Seagull Cottage and would love to go back in the future
We had a wonderful time.
We got back from our lovely stay at Churchhaven at 6 last night. It was wonderful indeed and all the friends who were there are still sad that we had to return to ordinary life. We will definitely go back again without a moment’s thought.
