Barefoot House, Rooiels

For accommodation in the Western Cape, Ken & Eva welcome you to stay at our house in Rooiels

Rooiels is a small sea-side village situated on the eastern side of False Bay, about 20 km from Gordons Bay, along the scenic coastal road. The varied terrain and topography makes our village somewhat unique. Here we live particularly close to nature-‘enjoying’ more than their share of both the summer and winter winds, watching spectacular surf breaking over the rocks in winter, and relaxing under crystal clear night skies unpolluted by street and other lights. All this in a village bounded by spectacular mountain ranges and a coastline stretching out over False Bay to the distant mountains on the other side of the bay, often silhouetted against beautiful sunsets.


Southern Right Whales can often be seen off our coast between July/August and November/December. Bryde’s whales, dolphins and seals can be seen throughout the year.
