About our home

The cottage is situated in the countryside. Private, safe, peaceful, 270 hectare fynbos and protea guest farm. Stunning views, very safe. Only 25 kms to the top tourist destinations of The Garden Route - Plettenberg Bay (sea) and Knysna (estuary and indigenous forest area). First world environment and services. Abundant bird life, hiking and mountain biking tracks on your doorstep. 120 m2 (without patio). Single lock up garage.
Martin is an artists and I (Amanda) manage the guest lodge on the property. Being in the tourism industry and wide travelers of South Africa too, we will be able to provide information about the area and the whole country (brochure stand about local activities). Would love to swap for 1 - 2 months in our winter (Mid April to end August). Our winters are very mild, lovely days (temp between 6 and 20 degrees C). House has a fireplace and heaters, free wood supplied. Two cats and old dog live here, no trouble at all! Good friend who knows the everything about the property and animals, live 600m away. She will also manage the guests. Guest lodge with guests, but for us it is off seaon, so not a lot in our winter months! All guest accommodation is situated away from the cottage. Virtually no traffic. Get the advantage of low prices everywhere during this season! My guest lodge is Protea Wilds Retreat.
