This secluded spot provides an ideal get away in a quiet forest garden, only 700 meters from the beach. The décor of the chalets relaxed garden style and lapa, all add to the real African experience.
We have seven self catering, four sleeper, two bedroom en-suite chalets. Our Chalets are all double story, with downstairs as well as loft bedrooms with beautiful views of the sloping forest garden. Each chalet is uniquely decorated providing interesting variation. The lounges are furnished with luxury couches, and each chalet is fully equipped with TV, stove, microwave, fridge kettle, toaster and other kitchen utensil. The chalets are serviced six days a week, there is no room service on Sundays, Christmas day and New Years Day.
The chalets face the sloping forest garden, pond and lapa, and this garden setting attracts a remarkable number of birds which is of interest to nature lovers, and provides a haven when the wind is blowing along the beach. Relax on the verandah, indulge in a walk in the lush garden or a take a dip in the pool; however you choose to unwind, Honeywood is the place.
