Bakoven Cottage
Welcome to Bakoven Cottage

Bakoven Cottage is a charming and unpretentious beach cottage, with an extraordinary location.  Perched on the rocks only meters away from the water, it boasts sweeping views of the ocean and the Twelve Apostles mountain range.

Bakoven, a tiny suburb bordering a small, secluded beach, is one of Camps Bay’s hidden gems.  Its name was coined by the Dutch settlers, literally “baking oven”, and refers to a large rock off the beach that looks like an open oven, similar to those used by the Dutch pioneers. The dash of white sand is surrounded on either side by a combination of big boulders and rocks, with a narrow channel of ocean, through which the NSRI rescue boats are launched.

Private and sheltered from the wind, with crystal clear turquoise waters, this haven offers an ideal summer experience for the whole family. Kids can be absorbed by the rock pools or the plethora of shells on the beach.  Other activities include paddling out onto the crystal clear waters. Famous for its breathtaking sunsets, be mesmerized and absorb the last rays of the sun while enjoying a sundowner on the iconic boulders.
