Casetta del Fuoco (Fire Cottage) is a modern, fully equipped converted shipping container "Tiny House". It is situated just 9km outside of the hustle and bustle of Plettenberg Bay and is perfect for a couple or a small family. Surrounded by untouched indigenous fynbos, semi-off-grid and green (eco-friendly), you can unwind and recharge in the tranquillity of the surroundings and use it as a base for exploring both Plettenberg Bay and Knysna (30km away) 

The space: 

After we lost our house in the devastating fire of 2017, Casetta del Fuoco was our home for almost 2 years while we rebuilt, hence the name meaning Fire Cottage in Italian. It is quaint and compact, but since we lived there for such a long time, it has everything you need for a fully self-catering stay.

Experience trendy Tiny House living first-hand. Our cottage features 2 bedrooms. The main bedroom has a double bed and wardrobe. The 2nd bedroom has bunk beds and a wardrobe area. There is also a sleeper couch in the lounge area.

The small, modern bathroom has a toilet, basin and shower.

Our accommodation offers an open-plan lounge with a kitchenette equipped with a 2-plate gas hob, microwave, mini-fridge, and toaster. Outside, you'll find a small deck and a braai (BBQ) area. We operate off-grid and are committed to living as eco-friendly as possible. As part of your rental experience, we strive to incorporate the following practices to reduce both our carbon footprint and yours:

  • The container runs on solar panels.
  • It has a solar geyser (with electric backup)
  • We use only rainwater (filtered drinking water is provided)*We provide recycling bins that are easy to use
  • All lights are LED's
  • We provide you with eco-friendly, biodegradable cleaning products and toiletries
  • We recycle grey-water
  • No single-use plastics are provided or used (no small bottles or sachets of shampoo, no disposable plastic cups or cutlery etc.)
  • Our cottage itself is made from an up-cycled shipping container! 

Guest access: Guests have access to the whole container cottage as it is separate from our own house. There is an outside deck area with a braai (BBQ) and a grass area.

Please note: Our farm is away from busy roads, but we do not have a fence (we prefer open spaces). We live off the Airport road and you will need to drive on a dirt road for 1.5 km to reach us - we promise the tranquillity will be worth it!
