Modern simplicity dovetails with eco-friendly design to offer stunning views from a variety of living spaces, decks, the pool & bedrooms.
The beautiful villa consists of 3 distinct freestanding spaces: the top, middle and bottom pavilions. Your space is the middle pavilion. situated on a prime plot & boasts modern pavilion style living.

Please note that we have a plunge pool not a spa, as there seems to be some confusion (there is no heating system for the pool). Please also note that the house is in close proximity to natural bush, so there are occasional sightings of small critters that live there, caterpillars and insects. There is however nothing known to be dangerous in our experience. In fact we have even seen bush buck in our estate so you may get lucky! :)

Interaction with GuestsWe will have little to no interaction with you, apart from via email or international phone call as we are currently residing in Sydney, Australia. So we will only interact if called upon to assist. Shanene, our housekeeper, will be available from 8am Monday - Friday (excluding public holidays). Her salary is included in the rental price, but please note that she is only paid to clean the house. If you wish for her to provide extra services, e.g. laundry or ironing, then you will need to agree a price for such services with her. Please let me know if you do not require her services during your stay so that I can make arrangements for her to take leave. Feel free to tip Shanene if you wish to, as she will often go the extra mile for you.
