Yzerfontein is a sought after destination for week-end guests - whether you are a couple or a group of friends. Our self-catering venue offer a very relaxing time for those wishing to get away from the city and unwind in a tranquil and peaceful surrounding. The seaside village offers beautiful hiking & cycling trails, picnic spots, the Saturday morning market, fishing, tennis, seasports and a few restaurants to choose from for iether breakfast, lunch or a special dinner. Yzerfontein week-ends therefore specializes in week-end bookings with a minimum of a 2 night stay in our self-catering facilities.

However, these times are negotiable depending on other bookings and generally, if you check out on a Sunday, you can spend the day and do not have to depart by 10h00 unless another booking is soming in on that Sunday which rarely happens.

Please take note that 1 night bookings over weekends in self-catering accommodation will have an additional surcharge, should the owner agree to it. Very few cottages accept a 1 night booking over a weekend or other busy times and preference will be given to 2 night bookings. The rate of the surcharge willd depend on the normal rate of the cottage and whether your 1 night booking is during the week or over a weekend.


There is a 50% deposit on the total amount due to secure a booking.

Should you book within 8 weeks of the arrival date you will be required to pay 100% of the fee. Short-lead time reservations must be paid in full immediately.

When you have made a booking for 2 nights and at a later stage change your booking to 1 night, depending on the notice period, you might be liable for full payment as per your original booking for 2 nights. The same applies when you have booked for more guests (where the rate is calculated per person) and less guests turn up - you might be liable for full payment for the original number of guets, depending on your notice period. ZABDIEL SELF-CATERING UNITS (flatlets) are highly sought after and could loose business because of last minute cancellations. We are called for a cancellation policy that will be fair to both parties. Self-catering unit owners are in agreement that once a deposit had been received, we unfortunately cannot refund your deposit, but we will give you the option to take up your booking at any other time that will suit both you and the flatlet or unit owner. However, flatlet owners reserve the right to change this policy in the case of last minite cancellations, over long weekends, festivals and other popular weekends whereby you will forfeit your deposit and / or full payment depending on the notice period.

There is a common misconception that small country villages are free of crime. Unfortunately this is not the case and Yzerfontein is no exception. For this reason it is important that you are aware of the security measures in and around Yzerfontein. It is important that you set your alarms when you go out. You should also ensure that you do not leave doors and windows open and unlocked, even while you are in the residence. Crime in the village is largely opportunistic and an open door or window is an invitation for someone to sneak in and scoop up whatever's available. Camera's, iPads, cellphones, laptops and wallets should be stored out of sight at all times. It is also important not to leave bicycles unchained and in plain view.
