About our home

The wooden cabin is situated on the Breede river in the heart of the wine lands and neighbouring olive farms. Less than two hours’ drive from Cape Town.
With abundant bird and wildlife, this is a relaxing escape to nature. The closest shops are a 40 minutes’ drive but the neighbouring farmers are a 7 minutes’ walk away and would be happy to assist. With no wifi and no TV, this is a perfect place for a digital detox.

The cabin consists of two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the second with bunk beds suitable for kids. The bathroom has both a bath and shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas hob and a convection microwave with an open plan lounge area cornered by a fireplace perfect for those winter evenings.
During the summer months, outdoor living is supported by the gas braai and misters on the balcony to cool the area. The river although not visible from the balcony because of the Flora, is 100 or so meters in front of the house. Canoes can be made available during your stay.

The road to the cabin is both dirt and tar road so a car with higher ground clearance is recommended.

The cabin will be cleaned before your arrival but as you are out in nature you can expect some bugs to visit. The swallows also enjoy nesting on the balcony ceiling.

You may able to combine your stay with our house in Cape Town which is also available on home swap.
