Other things you need to know:

  • No television - digital detox recommended

This two-bedroomed house is deliberately rustic, but homely and comfortable.

Beds are dressed in luxurious white linen and plump pillows with soft, fluffy towels are provided.

The decor showcases the work of The African Queen Studio, the owner's brainchild and which is located next door.

The shared bathroom has a mosaic feature floor in the shower (no bath).

The kitchen has a full gas stove , microwave and a full-sized fridge-freezer. It is open plan leading to the dining and seating area

The private shady veranda overlooks both the back garden and over the nature reserve to the Langeberg Mountains.

Guests also have access to a Weber kettle braai. However, high winds, the large number of thatched homes and the dry, natural vegetation mean that the owner reserves the right to prohibit lighting a fire if there are gale force winds.
