You’ll love my place because of the location, the views, the peacefulness and sounds of nature. No city lights, just big skies and stars with exceptional sunsets. The climate is wonderful all year round. We are the areas best kept secret as we are so close to Humansdorp yet hidden with easy access, Only 6km from the N2 and a further 7km to travel on gravel road to reach peace of mind.
Our place is good for couples needing alone time together, dream blazing open fire under a canopy of stars or stoking an indoor fire in the old farm kitchen hearth, solo adventurers seeking solitude and stillness and families (with kids). Perfect for Nature lovers, bird enthusiasts, walkers, cyclists (only 25 km to the Baviaanskloof entrance) and especially to Artists as an artists retreat. A place to reflect and to find your smile again.
Beautiful varied vegetation, from fynbos to riverine thicket, enjoy wonderful ambling walks across land or mountain walks traversing monkey rock landscape and through natural protea forest. Exquisite vistas and free grazing horses running wild and free. Replenishment!
