    Default Help request - Accommodation for 15 persons Wild Coast - September school holidays

    Swambo wants me to take the extended family (kids with partners and grandkids - 9 adults and 6 kids) for a "nice" holiday on the Wild Coast. I'm still not sure what I've done wrong, but here is her instructions:

    On the beach or easy walking distance to a beach/lagoon
    Full catering - bed and breakfast only considered if there is a restaurant on site
    Family friendly with possibly some child care - youngest is 2 - the rest are 8 - 15.
    Dates 21 - 29 September
    Nearby attractions - game drive, historical sites, etc..

    A Trennery's type place, but it's sold out, and I'm hoping not to have to hoes as much.

    All suggestions welcome - won't hold you to a an unfortunate recommendation - I'll do my homework.

    Try Wavecrest! We went there Feb last year and it's a paradise; fully catered and good value. Lovely beach, lagoon and indigenous forests. Others you should check out are Mazeppa Bay, Kob Inn and The Haven.

    Seagulls (next to Trennerys) has recently been lovingly renovated and is new owner run. He takes a lot of pride in his establishment. I will send you the owners direct email address to you via pm. Or you can Google Seagulls.

    Heinz, the answer with such a large group is to rent a holiday cottage on the Wild Coast. Many of them are well fitted out, if a little rustic and will have flush toilets and hot showers aplenty. They usually come with servants (whom you will have to pay) and these helpers know the workings of these holiday homes inside out. The maids are usually experts at baking fresh bread, vetkoeks, fried fish, mngqusho (stamped mealies and beans), crayfish, mussels and the like.
    Usually with such a cottage will be two maids and a handyman. The cottage owners are often keen to rent out in order to provide extra income for their staff.
    They usually have enough beds for the group you describe. I think you would have a holiday never to forget.
    Google Wild Coast holiday cottages for rent or even better if you have a contact with contacts, get them to help.
