The name NOUP is believed to originate from the Khoi language, referring to the grey vegetation on the surrounding dunes.
Nine sea-facing huts overlooking Still Bay on the farm Noup, were built by surf zone diamond divers working on contract between 1989 to 1993.
When the diamonds dried up, the divers left and this group of quaint and uniquely-built huts was turned into highly sought-after accommodation facilities for tourists. The original state of the huts was retained to a large extent, rendering it basic yet comfortable abodes that would appeal to the individual that finds beauty and enjoyment in the simple things in life.
Imagine going to sleep and waking up with the smell of the sea and the sound of the waves. . . Looking out onto the ocean from the comfort of your bed . . . A built-in hearth where you can have a braai even in the foulest of weather conditions . . . Taking a lazy walk to a stretch of private beach . . . Sounds like heaven?
