We have a very informative guest info book and can make many splendid recommendations as this area is fabulous for activities, wine tours, sea, beach, mountain, animals, golf ... The NeighborhoodBest lunch spot - right next door to us at Bramon Wine Estate - delicious tappas and excellent wines (lunch only).

It also has a super outside place to braai and it's own swimming pool. And lovely views over the valley across to the elephant sanctuary. There are two bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom which is a kingsize double and the children's room which is twin bedded, and one bedroom downstairs (also twin bedded), tucked away under the house. Both bathrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with separate bath and shower, and the second bathroom, has a shower only. The garden at That Place is prolific in birdlife, so for birders, it's a real joy. There are, occasionally, naughtly little vervet monkeys, so do keep your food inside. On lovely sunny days (of which there are many) it's perfect to sit out at your private pool, on a sunlouger absorbing the quite of the trees or the calls of the birds and hello's of the monkeys aross the valley. Evenings are great fun at That Place - with the undercover barbeque area (which we call a 'Braai')and a very long wooden table. There's plenty of wood, so the fire is soon lit and the feast is on. A fire and food, good friends and wine, what better way to end an evening under the velvety African sky ... Bramon Wine Estate is right next door - so on an another perfect afternoon it's a pleasant potter across to the restaurant to sit out in the vines and enjoy a delicious lunch mezze style while sipping on their delightful wines. Or for dinner, if you don't feel like cooking - to wander down to Enrico's pizza/pasta restaurant which is right on the edge of rocks overlooking the sea - "any closer, " says Enrico, "and you'll get wet". For things to do, there is no place like The Crags. Quite apart from being able to see the elephants across the valley each day, you are spoilt for choice. Apart for being able to visit the elephants and walk trunk-in-hand with them there is also Monkeyland which hosts 17 different species roaming free in their 14 hectare sanctuary, then right next door is The Birds of Eden, the largest free-flight sanctuary in the world! Closeby in Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre with their beautiful cats - cheetahs, leopards, caracals, servals, meerkats - and Earl the hilarious Marbou Stork. You can even spend a most informative hour with the snakes and crocodiles at Lawnwood Snake Sanctuary. Plus there are those glorious golden sandy beaches at Nature's Valley, Keurbooms and Plettenberg Bay. And don't forget the Bryde Whales, common & bottle nose dolphins and seals live here all year round while the Southern Rights and Humpback whales come to visit our bay from May to November each year. The rate is from R1500 to R2500 per night - depending on the season The rates above reflect the per night rate for the specific seasons. A maximum of 6 people can be accommodated at That Place - 4 upstairs, and 2 in the downstairs outside bedroom. Best with 4 people - and great for families. There is a housekeeper who comes in daily for a couple of hours to clean - excluding Sundays and Public Holidays. If you require any pre-shopping to be done before you arrive, let us know and we'll have it sorted for your arrival. You can settle that amount on arrival. That Place is situated 19km East of the small coastal town of Plettenberg Bay, in the rural suburb called The Crags. Take the N2, heading in an easterly direction (towards Port Elizabeth) and at the Bramon Wine Estate signs, turn right off the N2 (the entrance is numbered 21) and follow the signs to That Place.

Plettenberg Bay, nicknamed Plett, is in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. It was originally named Bahia Formosa ("beautiful bay") by early Portuguese explorers and lies on South Africa's Garden Route, 210 km from Port Elizabeth and about 600 km from Cape Town. Between 1960 and 1990 Plettenberg Bay holiday resort expanded dramatically, extending along Robberg Beach ('Millionaire's Row'), and back towards the N2. The Garden Route is a popular and scenic stretch of the south-eastern coast of South Africa. It stretches from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River, which is crossed along the N2 coastal highway over the Paul Sauer Bridge in the extreme western reach of the neighbouring Eastern Cape. The name comes from the verdant and ecologically diverse vegetation encountered here and the numerous lagoons and lakes dotted along the coast. It includes towns such as Mossel Bay, Knysna, Oudtshoorn, Plettenberg Bay and Nature's Valley; with George, the Garden Route's largest city and main administrative centre.

                        The SpaceA farm cottage built in the Tsitsikamma vernacular on a working cheese farm. Preferably for two guests but it can accommodate four. The cottage is hand made with most building materials coming from the farm. The comfortable cottage is aesthetically tasteful and epitomises off the grid living with candles and solar lighting, a large fireplace and gas water heating, cooking and refrigeration as well as rain water supplying all drinking and sanitation needs. In a world that seems more and more inhumane, Fynboshoek is a space that strives to present a more humane environment. We milk our goats by hand and no machine is involved in our cheese making. This back-to-basics philosophy follows us to the garden from which our restaurant gets its ingredients, our kitchen and the cottage that you can stay in. It is important to understand that although on a small scale, this is a real working farm - our crowing roosters may wake you, insects may join you in holidaying in Summer, you may hear our vehicle heading at 5am to collect fresh milk to make our mozzarella, halloumi, cheddar and other cheeses etc. You are welcome to stroll around on the farm. There is a short trail that takes you around the entire farm, part of which will take you through a small patch of forest that we are in the process of rehabilitating to become entirely indigenous. As alluded to above, we have a restaurant on the farm where you can book a leisurely lunch overlooking our dam and enjoy the produce of the farm with the focus being on our hand made cheeses. A cheese demonstration can also be booked by prior arrangement. I always welcome my guests personally but respect their privacy after that. If they need anything, my staff or I are available. I live in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa. We have a rare combination of sea, forests and mountains. The entire coastline of the Tsitsikamma is a marine park with the famous Otter Trail running along it. The area is for nature lovers but the glamorous Plettenberg Bay and cool Jeffries Bay is less than an hour away if you need a town fix. You will need your own or a rented car.
