Hi Arks

The best map is this one:

http://www.sanparks.org/assets/images/p ... layout.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The older maps actually show the different Oceanettes. I believe I still have a hard copy at home and can surely help you more.

Honeymooncottage is 17, 16A and 16B

The honeymooncottage are tops: no doubt, even more so if you look for privacy: Have a look at this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=41&t=40351" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

In the next thread there is one of my photo's that show units 10, 9, 8B and closest to the viewpoint 8A. Also very close to the sea, but less privacy.

viewtopic.php?f=41&t=32052" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

You can also google the park - there is also streetview.

Hope this help.

Please let me know if I can help more, I know the park quite well.

We have stayed in the Oceanettes 3 times and will hopefully return soon. The large Oceanettes are the two at the end of the complex and both have outside patios with a braai. Both have splendid views, but the one closest to the start of the Otter trail is without doubt the best accommodation in the park! (Oceannette No N - phone the park after you have booked and twist their arm to ensure that you get N and not G).

Thanks, HoepHoep, that does help a lot. I'm just surprised that the map doesn't include the type of chalet, as most of the other SANParks camp maps do include this useful information. As for phoning the park to request a specific unti, not easy (and quite costly) from the USA, so I will hope that I can do that with an email :) Thanks again for your help, it does look like a beautiful park!

One further question, why is Oceanette N so much preferable to G?

Hi Arks

Easy question.

This view:

This in the afternoon:

Not taken from the stoep, but it could have been. This is the start of the famous Otter Route.

Do you still need convincing to visit the most beautifull place on planet earth?

Thanks, HH, gorgeous pix. Is G then just lower down? Or .... (Because of course I might not be able to get N if someone else has already requested it :whistle: )

Hi Arks

The other unit is on the other end of the building - unfortunately not on the above photo.
It is convenient on ground level with grass and a braai at the front door, but then I would rather take one of the other units on a higher level which offer a better view of the waves and ocean.

Many thanks, HH, you've given me a much clearer sense of the options! :thumbs_up:
