We have four comfortable and peaceful cottages – Oribi, Samango, Serval and Dassie. We also rent out the main house (our family home) which was built for entertaining and is large and airy. The cottages sleep 4, 4, 3 and 2 people respectively and the house sleeps 8, although sofa beds and/or mattresses are available to extend all of this. It is also possible to rent out the whole place for much larger groups or family gatherings.

All bedrooms are en-suite and there are open fires, under-floor heating and electric blankets for the colder months. For the nights when you don’t want to sit outside and wonder at the unbelievable stars, there is DSTV and a DVD player and of course the sparkling, solar heated pool. I have many games which I am happy to lend and a large library of DVDs.

The kitchens are fully equipped and the cottages are serviced daily. (The main house can also be serviced by prior arrangement). A laundry service is available on request.

All the accommodation is very close to the bush and is secluded and safe. The dawn chorus will wake you in the mornings and if you are an early riser you may catch a glimpse of the spectacular Knysna Louries or Paradise Flycatchers on their early morning rounds.
