Lagoon House

This historic house, located within the greater Rest Camp area, has been carefully restored and is situated on a peninsula to the west of the Suiderstrand enclave (of private residents) and with the sea comprising about three-quarters (270°) of the view from this house, it has an awesome location.

This house and farm used to belong to PK Albertyn who bought it from Mike van Breda in 1898 and in the same year a cottage was built for Mrs Albertyn as a birthday gift. The small bay to the west of the house reminded her of a book she had read, called the 'Blue Lagoon' and she called the property 'The Lagoon'. When the children got married rooms were added on both sides of the original cottage. This portion of the Park was incorporated into Agulhas National Park in 2001.

The facility has four bedrooms, of which two have separate external entrances and own en-suite bathroom (shower & toilet) and the other two are in the house with a single bathroom (bath, shower and toilet). There is also a kitchen and living area in the house.

The oldest houses probably dates back to the middle of the 18th century while the youngest to 1939/40.

The cottages have been carefully restored for the modern day visitor. The name originates from the skull of a Black Rhino which was found in this area many years ago and is still being preserved in the Springfield Estate museum.
