Voelklip | 4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | Sleeps 8 | Children welcome | Pets welcome | Langbaai beach

Located just a 2 minutes’ stroll away from the Langbaai, Platbank, Voelklip and Kammabaai (surfing hub) beaches in the heart of Voelklip, rests one of Hermanus’ best-kept secrets, Mooinooientjie cottage. Designed for the ultimate holiday experience where family memories of a lifetime are made, this private villa offers comfortable self-catering accommodation with a contemporary, yet sleek farmhouse feel. It offers the best a luxurious vacation home can provide, from appliances to in- and outdoor furniture.

All entrances lead to quaint front and back gardens / patios, with the main attraction being a marvellously big undercover porch and braai area that breaths sublime tranquility through the expansive sliding door and serving hatch type window into the lounge with open plan kitchen. The master en-suite also provides entrance to the porch. An additional sundeck provides the ideal spot for sunseekers. The external hot-cold shower enables cooling down or washing sand off your feet after a day at the beach. Outside the secure walls of the villa, you are greeted by the majestic Overberg mountains every time you go for a walk or cycling.

The finely furnished home can accommodate 8 guests and comprises 4 bedrooms, 3 of which are in the main house. The fourth bedroom is an outside cottage room. The main en-suite bedroom contains a queen-size bed and has a work-from-home desk and two couches perfect for relaxed reading leisure. The en-suite bathroom has a large, comfortable shower.  The second and third bedrooms contain two single beds and have access to a shared bathroom with shower and the functionality to fill a small tub with water for babies. The fourth bedroom in the cottage is furnished with 2 single beds that make a king-size bed. It has an adjoining outside bathroom with shower and has its own smart tv. The cottage room is ideal for guests seeking additional privacy or for an au pair. All rooms have welcome cupboard space.

The house comprises an open-plan kitchen, dining area and lounge. The kitchen is equipped with a top-of-the-range fridge/freezer, a gas hob and electric oven, a microwave, a kettle and toaster, a coffee machine, a dishwasher, a washing machine as well as cleaning materials. In the lounge is a big screen Smart TV with DSTV and Netflix, and a wood-fired fireplace. Free WiFi is available with UPS back-up.

Guests can enjoy the private garden, as well as the outdoor seating area for alfresco dining and braai facilities. Off-street parking is also available to guests, and the property is secure with an alarm system. In addition, there is enclosed storage space for a trailer, bicycles or kayaks.

The location offers access to beaches, a number of restaurants, art galleries and coffee shops. It is also not far from the lagoon and scenic walking and mountain biking trails on the mountain.

    We stayed in Mooinooientjie for 4 months. A delightful home with a short walk from Langbaai, Platbank and Kammabaai. We had lovely evenings on the patio and early coffees on the beach. A lot of care has been taken to equip the house with all needed amenities and beautiful decor. On arrival we received a welcome card, fresh flowers and a tasty bottle of Baleia olive oil. We only have the highest praise and rating for the renting agents, Firefly Villas. Corné and Michelle regularly went the extra mile to ensure our comfort. A big thank you and a well deserved 5 stars!

    Wow what an amazing stay. “Hemel op aarde” If you go look up the word “Good Service” in the dictionary you will find the explanation as FireFlyvillas by Corne and Michelle. Everything was so easy from finding the perfect place to stay for a month to staying in the most beautiful home in Hermanus. Just 2 min walk from the beach. We loved sitting on the patio at night and in the morning just breathing in the fresh air and listening to the sound of the sea. The house is warm by itself which is a great advantage. You will find everything you need in the house and more. The owners are very accommodating and arrange an extra Gas heater for us, which was actually not needed. If anything is needed, you will get service within 15 minutes. Something we are not used to coming from Johannesburg. If I could i would have stayed forever. Thanks to the owners of Mooinooientjie for a lovely stay. And Corne and Michelle you are absolute amazing people and glad we met during this journey of ours. Keep up the good work. Marlise, Eduan, Joshua and Benjamin

    We had a wonderful stay and terrific time at Mooinooientjie. We stayed for 1 month and everything was just so easy.
    Corné and his team at Firefly Villas were awesome.
    The property is as described, and the location is fantastic. As I was working remotely from this property, wifi was crucial for me. The wifi provided was excellent and I had zero disruptions in connectivity.

    I cannot stress enough how great Corné and the Firefly Villas team is. They are so welcoming, nothing is too much to ask, and are always available when needed. You’ll not only be staying in a fantastic villa when dealing with them, but be assured of the best service there is! We’ll be back again!

    We had an amazing stay at Mooinooientjie! Corne, Michelle, Leandri and Pieter were excellent hosts and communication was superb. We received a lovely bottle of wine and beautiful flowers on arrival. You rarely get this type of personalized service nowadays. The house was very well equipped and had an excellent design. Very high-quality finishes and beautiful furnishings. The location was perfect and only a short stroll to the cliff path and beaches. Highly recommended!

      Thank you for the feedback, Annemie! You are wonderful guests to host and we enjoyed doing so.
      Kind regards,
      The Firefly Villas Team

    What a fantastic weekend at Mooinooientjie!! This house is so wonderfully close to the cliff paths but private enough to relax and unwind. Clean and tidy with all amenities and things you may need. Leandi was super friendly and helpful! Thank you Firefly Villas, we will be back!! 🙂
