The owner of Sea Shack has a deep and profound love of nature and has created this eco-friendly lodge to allow people to experience the beauty and tranquility of the area.

As part of Cape Columbine Nature Reserve, Sea Shack is committed to the conservation of the natural environment, education and to rehabilitate previously damaged areas.

There is a sound recycling program in place where all glass, paper, plastic and tin are separated and taken to the designated drop off in Paternoster.

All cleaning at the Sea Shack is done using environmentally-friendly, biodegradable, non-toxic cleaning products.

Guests are requested to bear in mind the eco-friendly nature of Sea Shack and are thus requested to bring environmentally-friendly body products.

As this area is very dry the 10 little shacks were designed in a simplistic and eco-friendly way so that the roofs provide dew/water run off for the indigenous gardens below. To further conserve water, eco-toilets have been installed which do not use any water.

Sea Shack is off-the-grid; the geysers are heated with gas; as is the stove and oven. All other power at Sea Shack comes from the sun though their solar power systems.
