To be nestled in the mountains, surrounded by nature with the love of your life = heaven. The view from your bed, the kitchen, the bath is simply breathtaking. A must not just for honeymooners but for anyone looking for a peaceful nature getaway or to rekindle the flame. Absolute privacy.

The setting and location is not only magnificent but very convenient. We had wonderful meals at Totties, drove through the magical Phantom Pass and visited not only Knysna but also Sedgefield markets and local farms with wonderfull produce, all within a 10 minute drive. That however said, the highlight was evenings spend in front of the fire place. This is an ideal setting to find yourself. It feels like home and you will never want to leave.
