Storms River Mouth Honeymon Cottages

Unread post by gqueen » Fri Apr 17, 2009 3:42 pm

Hi All,
We stayed in the honeymoon cabins 2 years ago and loved them. They are no longer listed on the Storms Rivers Mouth site. What happened to them, and when did it happen?

Hi George

We have just returned from Stormsrivermouth and I have bad news and good news.

Bad news: The honeymoon cottage have been demolished, level to the ground.

Good news: The honeymoon cottages have been rebuilt. Brand, spanking new in exactly the same location. Construction on two have been completed and the third are almost finished. All three were empty while we were there so I could peek through the window and I can advise you that now is a good time for a second honeymoon!

Tsitsikamma chalets

Unread post by Liora » Mon Jun 22, 2009 10:05 am

Hi,

I have booked 2 chalets (CH2 and CH4-Pens) at Storms River Mouth. Can anyone tell me what the accommodation is like? Or even have a picture for me? I have looked on the Sanparks website, but can't find photos or much info.

Thanks,
Liora

The CH4's can be seen here. Click the little photos for larger versions. The same works for the other bungalows.
Not posting much here anymore, but the photo's you can follow here There is plenty there.

Thanks I had a look at it seems great, but I can't find the pics for CH2. Are the similar to CH3?

Also, whereabouts are these chalets? Are they close to the parking lot or camping? We would prefer to be a bit quiter.

Thanks,
Liora

Camp Map The map is not that clear, but if you saved it on your computer and zoom in, you would find the CH4 and CH2 chalets to the right of the map (nearer to the shop and restaurant)

@ Liora

Enjoy your stay.This is a wonderful place.

How is your group made up? Seems to be 6 people.

Have you considered 2 CH3 units. If you can get 2 adjoining they have an inter-leading door. That will give you two separate bedrooms with twin beds and two single beds is the 2 lounges. (That is better than twin bunk in lounge)
Their view is excellent and it is relatively quiet. We have just stayed there for 2 nights in a CH3.
The Ch4-PENS don't have such a good view, rather consider the Ch4 then.
Budget wise the Forest Cabins can also work if you just look for a place for kids to sleep. We have done that in the past because the CH3 have a big enough lounge.

@ Boorgatspook

Don't you have that map at a higher resolution. As you know the map on the website don't show the different types, only numbers. You can mail it to me if it is to big to post. Thanx

Hi Liora

If you go that time of the year you must grab what you can get.
All acomodation are great.
The CH2 are close to the parking, but it is still private in the front where your stoep are. I presume that you will spend a lot of time away from your chalet in any case. The Ch4-Pens are close to the swimming pool, and that is also an advantage. The Ch2's have all been completely rebuilt and are spanking new.
Enjoy your stay.

Dear friends, forumites and especially Tsitsikamma-specialists,

Two questions!

1: I have a booking for an oceanette. At the time of booking all chalets were fully booked for the date I booked for. However, I just found out by browsing the availability pages that one chalet became available. It is CH4s (Chalet 4 bd S-d). Would you people recommend to change? Or is it not worth it. I have the impression that this chalet is very close to the ocean (it is a bit more expensive than the other chalets) but of course I could be wrong.

2: How to change the booking? I can not do it by phone (no international connection from the workplace and only home very late) so I would prefer to do it by e-mail. Would it be best to mail reservations@sanparks.org or do you recommend other "more direct" e-mail addresses.

THX A LOT

Hi Salva

This is a difficult one, but rest assured both are winners!!!

We have found the Oceanettes exceptional for their view of the ocean and it is one of the best spots for watching the dolphins. Some people do however say that the Oceanettes is like a modern block of flats (apartments), and that is true. The chalets have a completely different feeling to them.

The CH4 S(emi) D(etached) have just been completely rebuilt/refurbished and is indeed right next to the ocean. Also better for an outdoor braai.

If you are going to spend more time indoors, then go for the chalets. If you are going to watch the ocean all the time, go for the Oceanettes, provided it is one with an elevation - Not unit O, P, Q or R.

If you are going to spend most of the times walking around - toss a coin.

Enjoy your stay.

Thank you VERY much Hoephoep! Sounds like a difficult one indeed! But Since you say the chalets are right next to the ocean, I think I will try changing. Nice for braaiing and even though the chalets are semi-detached I reckon the balconies are still private, no?

Would you perhaps know where exactly this CH4 SD chalets are exactly? I just had a look at the plan on the Tsitsikamma-site itself and I was lucky enough in the past to stay in units 16A and 7A. I think these CH4SD are chalets 1 to 6. Am I right?

Some detailed questions I know but I have the impression you know an awful lot bout this camp :D

Hi Salva

No, I don't know an awful lot about this camp - I love the place an awful lot!

I just phoned SRM and there are only two CH4 units, numbers 5 and 6 on the map. If you stayed in #7 in the past, you should no what to expect.

Unit 7 in the foreground and 5 and 6 behind it - right next to the ocean - the stoep is almost over the rocks! Can't get any closer!

Hi Tal

Yes they do have an outdoor braai. It is behind the enclosure (for the wind and privacy) in the foreground of the photo.

Enjoy your stay.

Ground Floor Oceanette

Unread post by RiaanS » Mon Oct 18, 2010 4:30 pm

Any opinions what the view from the ground floor oceanettes is like? Will one at least have a view of the ocean or is there some rocks/bushes obscuring the view? I made a resevation for a small oceanette and was allocated one on the ground floor. Was wondering if it's worthwhile making a fuss for another unit.

Hi and welcome to the forums Riaan.

We have stayed in a groud floor unit and I thought the view lovely. But you are probably going to have a better view of the sea from higher.

I personally would keep the ground floor option. One has access right onto the rocks etc while units above open onto a balcony. Your braai etc is on grass on the ground floor.

Hope this helps.
