What makes Cabane de la Plage a great holiday rental
This is the ultimate beach-lovers' rental - just sand and the glittering ocean in front. Dip in & out of the waves at will. Just a short walk to Hossegor's shops, bars & restaurants. Unique!
This is a fun and quirky place to stay for couples or a family. With its cabin-style rooms and outside deck facing the sea, it's like living on a boat!
Surfers, sun-lovers, and those for whom even a walk to the beach is too far - on the beach it has to be. Families, friends, couples who prefer to entertain themselves on holiday (no TV or wifi).
Anything to watch out for?
An established surfing resort with a very 'cool' vibe. The resort offers great beaches, good shopping, a lovely lagoon and plenty of activities (surf, golf, tennis, cycling, sailing & more).
Unique, charming beach cabin in the most amazing location
Cabane de la Plage is a wooden beach-cabin, 47m2 inside plus 25m2 terrace, located on 300m2 plot of the dunes overlooking Hossegor's south beach.
Access to the cabane is from Hossegor seafront promenade, through a gate and flight of steps which lead around the cabane (past a very handy outdoor shower) to the sea-facing entrance.
It has a yacht-style interior, attractive, and tastefully decorated all in wood with slate tiled floor.
The furnishings, bedding and equipment are good quality. (We have given the property a 'simple' rating because of the compact interior, and lack of TV & wifi - otherwise it's good.)
A pair of double-width sliding doors open into the living space, comprising well-equipped open-plan kitchen with breakfast bar, dining table for 4-6, plus a corner sitting area for 4-5.
To the rear are the three bedrooms - master double bedroom (160cm x 200cm bed) with ensuite shower, plus two cabins each with bunk beds.
There is a further bathroom with shower and WC, plus a separate WC. (The rooms are small and difficult to photograph.)
The west & south facing terrace runs the width of the cabin and extends about 4m; an awning provides shade outside and in. There is a garden table & chairs for 6, plus two deckchairs. There's a handy outside shower too.
Indoor games such as Scrabble, Uno, plus outdoor games including bodyboards, boules, badminton, are provided.
1 double bedroom, two bunk bedrooms, all are cabin-sized
2 shower rooms - 1 ensuite, 1 shared
No smoking. Pets welcome.
Cabane de la Plage is located just below the promenade on the dunes approx. 300m south of Hossegor's Plage Centrale - the location for many shops, restaurants and cafés.
Hossegor town centre (for the lagoon, market, boulangerie, plus lots of shops & restaurants) is 1km away.

The local region of Sud Landes is typical Aquitaine - endless stretches of sandy beaches buffeted by the Atlantic ocean, vast pine forests punctuated by the occasional lake and criss-crossed by a network of cycle trails.
Capbreton and Hossegor are neighbouring seaside towns which between them offer an appealing contrast. Hossegor is the more famous, largely through its surfing heritage. It's a 'feelgood' place offering boutique shopping, great bars, nightlife and restaurants, world-famous surfing beaches, casino, and a lovely golf course plus a beautiful lagoon for safe bathing.
Like most of the south west coast, the area is something of an outdoor playground. Take your pick from surfing, canoeing, sailing, diving, fishing, cycling, tennis, horse-riding and golf to name a few.
Golfers will enjoy the local course, the 1930s-built Golf d’Hossegor. The traditional club house is also a delight. A short drive up the road is Seignosse, a water and forest monster of a course ranked in Continental Europe’s Top 50. There are other great courses within 45 minutes drive including Moliets and several around Biarritz.
Hossegor regularly holds major surfing competitions; the whole Aquitaine coast is a perfect venue for surfers but here, the presence of an offshore hollow in the sea-bed gives the waves here that extra edge. If you don't fancy a go yourself, just sit on the sea-front with a drink of your choice and watch the surfers ride to shore. Surfing visitors will also want to visit the outlet centre at Soorts where the major brands have factory stores selling boards, accessories and clothing.
Cyclists can enjoy the many safe forest tracks that connect between the towns along the coast. Sailing enthusiasts should head for the marina. Being so close to the Pays Basque border, sporting life also includes the legendary game of pelote; you can watch a game at the fronton in Hossegor.
Capbreton lives in the shadow of Hossegor but it's the place the locals prefer for eating out and for beaches. It's definitely the more authentic of the two, largely because of its fishing port and daily fish market. In fact, the town thrived in the 19th century as a whaling port and this sea-faring heritage is still very much apparent today.
It also has a charming town centre and market. Capbreton is just more French than Hossegor, if you see what we mean. It remains, admirably, something of a French (and Spanish) secret.
Capbreton sea-front is a bustling place, day and evening. You can walk all the way along the marina and sea-front. The jetty, known locally as l'estacade, offers excellent coastal views. There's normally a few locals here trying to catch a fish for supper. It makes for great viewing!
