CHILD POLICY:  We are child friendly and believe that these little people are our tourists of tomorrow!  The only request we have is that children ( and some times grown ups too) refrain from stomping on the floor of the Loft as the noise generated can disturb the guests below. Over the past 26 years we have accommodated little ones who are now “big ones”!

pets 2


Eastbury Cottage has 2 pet friendly units, namely the Garden Cottage and Courtyard, in which we welcome furry guests. We can also accommodate very small dogs like Yorkies or Maltese doggies in the Rose Room. However, if you have a particularly unusual or exotic pet, please contact us to discuss their visit.

Please observe the following conditions if you wish to bring a pet to Eastbury:

1. Provide details of your pet at the time of making your booking. Please consider whether your pet is suitable to bring to Eastbury i.e. it will not cause damage to property or behave aggressively.

2. A maximum of 2 pets can be accommodated per unit at Eastbury at any one time.

3. We request that your dog(s) be leashed at all times when outside your enclosed unit area, on the common property and in Hermanus.  The “Plaat” east of Grotto Beach is doggy friendly and owners walk their dogs unleashed on this beach area.

4. Please bring all the supplies you need to look after your pet during your stay. Bring your pet’s own bed, blanket, towels, food, bowls and toys. Please remember poop scoop bags, your dog’s lead, collar and any other essentials, such as medication.

5.  If you want to wash your dog, please request the large zinc basin we have for this purpose. Please bring your own doggie towel.

6. Please clear away your pet’s “poops”.  There are poop scoops provided at each  unit.

7. Please do not leave your doggie unattended in the unit. It is very disturbing to us all, hearing them cry for you.

8. Pets are not allowed on the furniture and beds.

9. Pets must be worm, tick and flea free.

10.  Pets are brought to Eastbury Cottage at your own risk.

11.  Your furry friends are very welcome but please bear in mind that you will be responsible for any damage.
