My wife and I are just back from our second stay in a rondavel at Flamingo Lake. We stayed here in 2012 and just now January/February 2013. The location is stunning being situated on a lagoon just five minutes walk from the ocean. The sunsets here are stunning and the beach is crowded...........with seagulls and terns, it is a most magical spot. The rondavel we stayed in has benefitted by a velux window in the roof which allows good light in and a ventilation. The rondavel was comfortable and had all the self catering facilities that you would require. With Hermanus 15 minutes drive away there are many restaurants within easy reach (you can even get take away fish and chips from Fisherhaven itself, the local town) and it is an excellent location to explore the Overberg. The large double bed was very comfortable and the rondavel is decorated in an appealing style. Whilst I feel the braai facilities could do with updating this did not detract from our 3 week visit.
If you do not relax in this spot you will not relax anywhere.
