About Ichibi Lakeside Lodge
Ichibi Lakeside Lodge is set on ten hectares of an old pine plantation. Surrounded by natural bush and fynbos with only bush buck, ‘Turtles’ a crazy peacock, (that thinks he is a dog) and our two ‘real’ dogs as neighbours - the tranquillity is tangible.
The positive of being a relatively small lodge is that we get to spoil our guests by not having a time table. We have the satisfaction of watching our guests unwind and relaxing after either a long journey or just a busy life.
In the interior of the lodge we have continued this tranquillity with simple natural materials to create a luxurious yet Zen like atmosphere. Peace and privacy is a rarity in this hectic modern world. Here at Ichibi our goal is to provide it.
Each of our five rooms has their own entrance and outside sitting area. Each room has tea / coffee making facilities so you can at least have a cup of tea before you face the world. There is ample free parking around the lodge.
Our standard suites sleeps two guests and offer an en-suite bedroom with garden views. All the rooms have en-suite shower, bar fridge plus tea and coffee making facilities. Air-conditioning / heating and free Wi-Fi is also available.
Our Luxury Suite offers you a bedroom in the main house with grandiose lake views from its own private balcony. The room sleeps two guests in a king size bed. There is air conditioning and shared DStv, a bar fridge and en-suite bathroom with shower.
Our honeymoon suite offers a grandiose bedroom and bathroom with 180 degree views of the lakes and direct access to the main deck. The room is furnished with an extra length king size bed.
We serve a continental breakfast either to your room, in the dining area or if you prefer to be outside taking in the amazing views, on the deck. You can choose a time to be served between 07h30 and 11h30 or just let us know when you are awake and hungry.
Just ten minutes away is Wilderness Village with its restaurants and bars, from fine dining to casual pizzas. Even closer is the beautiful Wilderness Beach without a vendor or an ice cream in sight. In the opposite direction lies Goukamma Beach a marine reserve, totally protected and usually deserted.
Should you be feeling energetic there are a variety of outdoor activities in this area; paragliding, abseiling, canoeing, horse riding, elephant rides, safaris and a little further in Mossel Bay, caged shark diving.
