We are close to Lanseria Airport, only 30 min from Joburg and Pretoria, and yet in the countryside, in midst of beautiful gardens with amazing views into the hills of Hennopsrivier. You’ll love our place because of the tranquility and if lucky, you might hear zebra or jackal calling. Our place is wonderful for couples to bond, for adventure hiking into the hills, and business travelers to put their feet up and relax.
On request:
- exquisite full board
- therapeutic counselling and retreats

The space

We are a stone throw away from the cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria, but you feel as if you have retreated to the tranquility of the bush whilst surrounded by wonderfully tended gardens and aloes galore. Your cottage is situated on top of a hill, nestled under trees - cool in the summer and warm and cozy in winter. Come and put your feet up and enjoy our sanctuary.

Guest access

Your very own look-out patio for tea and evening fire is yours to enjoy. Hammocks awaits you to laze and lounge. Lots of demarkated walking paths into our surrounding hills invite you for easy hikes. Our gardens with koi ponds and a small pool are waiting for you. Please note that they are not covered with any netting, and thus children have to be supervised at all times by parents at all times.

Interaction with guests

We are here for your comfort and endeavor to make your stay with us perfect. Yvonne is from Swiss Hotelier Stock - where the client is King. Please place your requests with Yvonne and she will go out of her way to make your stay memorable.
Yvonne speaks English, German, French, Spanish and Greek - welcome and feel at home!

Other things to note

Our place is inhabited by hundreds of bird species - bring your binoculars if you wish to do some birding, and some good walking shoes to hike into the surrounding hills.
We have 8 small dogs, which roam free, but absolutely respect your space.
Our water is deliciously clean and tested borehole water, cleaned and filtered by the underlying dolomite.
We have a big, silent generator for your comfort.
