The Fernery Chalets

B&B Chalets


The Loerie, with its vivid green and red colouring and striking crest, gives this Chalet its bright and beautiful colour scheme and stunning headboard.


The Galjoen is South Africa's national fish and frequents the Tsitsikamma coastal waters. This chalet is beautifully decorated in blue and cream and has a lovely view from its deck through the gorge mouth to the sea.

In the Forest

Tranquility itself – with a moss green and white colour scheme which really makes you feel as though you are in the shade of the beautiful cool forests which once covered this area.


This lovely silver and copper coloured shell which is found in the rock pools along the Tsitsikamma coast gives this Chalet its earthy brown and beige colour scheme. The headboard artistically depicts waving seaweed and driftwood.

Fern Cottage

An absolute must at The Fernery and decorated in hues of gentle greens. The prep bowl is hand painted with delicate fronds of coral fern.

Oyster Catcher

The Oyster Catcher is one of South Africa's endangered birds but frequents our Tsitsikamma coast. The Chalet which bears its name, is strikingly coloured in darker tones with splashes of red.

The theme of the Blue Lily (Agapanthus africanus) has been carried through this Chalet with its blue, cream and green colour scheme. The gardens are filled with agapanthus which bloom in midsummer. It is ideal for families with young children.


Sunbirds abound in the fynbos surrounding the Chalets and with their bright colours are easy to spot in the trees and shrubs. This Chalet is decorated using the bright green and yellow of the double collard Sunbirds. It is ideal for families with young children.
