About our home

The photos will tell the story about our luxury home. Everything works. It comes with Housekeeper and Man Friday who looks after garden, wood supplies and fuels the boat daily. We have our own private jetty and boat for your convenience. We are 2,5 kms from the river mouth and a secluded private beach. The only way to get there is by boat. Our neighbours are on standby to give any assistance needed. Our area boast the most spectacular white beaches - compares with the best anywhere in the world. We are on a 72 ha farm with wonderful walks through the property plus several amazing beach walks. The river is an estuary and good for fishing. We are located 32 kms from a major airport. A 75 min flight to Cape Town, Durban or Johannesburg(about $125 return). We are within 3 hours drive from 4 games parks - malaria free. Shamwari, Addo Elephant Park - Kariega - Nkenwezi. We are 45 kms from the city East London. We are located on the East coast of South Africa, known as the Sunshine Coast.

Where is it?


We are located on the East Coast of South Africa in the Eastern Cape Province. We live on a 72 ha farm on the Chalumna River. There are 24 homes on the River with five permanent families - the rest are holiday homes. We are 45 Kms from the city East London and 32 kms from the airport. There are several game parks within easy reach in a malaria free area. Our nearest neighbors are 40 meters away - otherwise very secluded and private. This place is about the outdoors, hiking and enjoying the beach and river. Don't come here if you are after the bright lights
