Oupa se Pitte is a holiday house divided into 2 self-catering units. Aptly named "Oupa se Pitte" since our grandfather bought this house many years when it was an annex of the original Herolds Bay Hotel and we are blessed that the 4th generation still has the privilege of this holiday home. He was also fondly called Pitte, which in Afrikaans translates to money. It is the 3rd house from the rocks and offers magnificent sea views and direct access to the beach. Both units have sea facing balconies with build-in braais, are comfortable decorated yet modern and best of all, the house is ON the beach. Both units are very popular but the layouts differ.
The 6-sleeper, ground-floor unit offers a beautiful, sea-facing bedroom that is furnished with a queen size bed, and 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds each. There are 2 bathrooms: a 1 full bathroom that is fitted with a bath, shower, basin, and toilet inside the unit and a 2nd outside bathroom with a shower, toilet and basin. Bedding and bath towels are supplied. The open-plan living area comprises of a lounge and dining area with fabulous stacking doors.

Herolds Bay is in the heart of the magnificent Garden Route, with its natural beauty of sand, sea, sun, rivers, mountains, lakes, caves and forests. The beautiful, picture-perfect and sheltered beach cove has held an allure for holiday makers. Sketches and photographs in the George museum tell of ox wagons filled with tents, goods, and servants, camping out on the beach itself. Today it is a popular destination for holiday makers and celebrities alike. This small and picturesque village has managed to keep its exclusive village appeal due to limited development area being available on the beachfront.
