This is a country style thatch-roof home with LOTS of space and LOTS of quiet. The en-suite room has it's own entrance so guests can come and go at their leisure.

The space

We offfer a Huge room with enSuite bathroom (Jacuzzi Bath) and Thatch roof.

On the property you'll find an Infinity pool, Sauna, a massive garden and you'll still be walking distance from Menlyn or Major Highways.
(nb: The pool might be off limits at the time of your stay since our children are still small and we cant leave the pool uncovered)

Most of our guests comment on how peaceful it is even though we live in the city.. From the pictures you will be able to tell that the big trees and consequent birdlife are well represented. We also have giuneafowl, geese and chickens in the yard... This adds to the country vibe.

It is pretty important to note that the home is about 100 years old, and that the windows/floors and doors might not be to the standards of the 21st century although they are whole and in working order.

The thatch-roof provides a lovely atmosphere and is lovely and cool in summer. In winter months the large volume of the room can be problematic if you are used to central heating, but warm water bottles and a goose-feather duvet will heat you up quickly.

Another thing about thatch-roofs is that they shed some dust and occationally houses a small (URL HIDDEN) need for alarm, but if you have OCD, think twice

With regards to cleaning: we offer you the choice to have cleaners whenever you wish (booking essential) at R150/day, but we will give your bed a makeOver once a week (clean linen). If you wish to clean by yourself, all the essential tools are conveniently in your room.

Since the room doesn't offer a kitchen, a bar-fridge and microwave is available on request in the poolroom/patio next to the swimmingpool (Please book in advance). Here you also have access to a dishwashing basin and this prevents leftover food clogging the bathroom drain.

Lots of cupboards! Lots of space!

We keep our prices low because we love meeting new people and where time allows we usually invite guests for a free dinner to exchange some stories.

Guest access

Room, Bathroom, Poolhouse/MiniKitchen, Garden.

Interaction with guests

We'll occasionally see each other on the veranda and have coffee.

Other things to note

Please be aware that this is africa and we occasionally have power cuts for an hour or 2. Nothing to worry about..

Contact with Janet was quick and easy prior to our arrival. The room is beautiful and the bed incredibly comfortable. The big jacuzzi bath was a very welcome treat.

Truly beautiful room and property, impeccably clean. Janet and Corne were lovely hosts. The whole place was more reminiscent of a honeymoon suite than a spare bedroom, complete with a dual-showerhead and hottub for two, his and hers sinks. Great place to relax and unwind. Location is a bit far from local shopping and restaurants if you don't have a car, but still walkable if you don't mind the exercise. Quite far and an expensive cab ride from the city centre if that's where you hope to spend your time.
