About Fort Wiltshire
Our house is a wonderful place to get away to - whether you a group of friends, a couple of families or just a family on your own. Located near the end of a cul-de-sac and being right on the golf course, one really experiences peace and tranquillity here.
Self Catering Accommodation
The house sleeps a maximum of 12 people in 4 bedrooms (Three Double rooms and one single with cot) as well as a loft area (two double beds and two single beds). Linen is supplied; however you might like to bring something extra for the cold winter nights. There are two shared bathrooms - one with bath and shower, and the other with shower. We do not supply towels.
The lounge, dining room, kitchen are all open-plan under an open double volume roof with lofty windows that bring brilliant rays of sun into the living areas. Being right on the golf course, the large windows and sliding door onto the balcony lend themselves to the wonderful, undisturbed views over the golf course, the coastal bush and the sea beyond.
The lounge has a fireplace which warms the house beautifully in the winter. There is a radio / CD player, but no TV. The house is well appointed with the kitchen fully equipped with all the amenities one would have in your own kitchen. (Dishwasher, microwave, gas stove, electrical oven, fridge and bar fridge).
For the braai (BBQ) enthusiasts we have a personally-built stone boma fireplace (with braai-grid) sheltered by the milkwood tree at the front of the house. There is a double garage with off-street parking and a washing machine.
