Brutus Suite:
The Brutus Suite is actually more than a suite; it consists of the whole lower area of the main house which contains a stunning Double Bedroom en-suite, a guest toilet, a very spacious lounge with its own fireplace, a large dining room which has a table to seat 10 people, a dream kitchen and an outside patio furnished with a large outdoor table and chairs covered by an umbrella which is optional open or closed; ideal for entertaining or just dining in the evening or even breakfasting in the morning. Add to this the whole private garden leading off this area and its own heated swimming pool with a deck surrounded by tropical plants and the words luxury and leisure spring to mind. The charm of course goes without saying; Olde worlde and totally authentic Cape Dutch - all in all a dream holiday experience.

Cottage Suite:
This absolutely charming suite consists of a kitchen with a table and chairs for dining, a divine double bedroom en-suite with a bath and shower and a lounge area with a comfortable large couch and chairs (all decorated with exquisite taste). Leading off from the lounge is a double door opening onto a picture perfect patio with table, chairs and an umbrella which is yours to use as you please. The patio offers privacy and the option of dining or having breakfast or just perhaps sundowners as you look out at the stunning mountain views! Also of course with the authentic charm of our Heritage home; the cottage is a choice which will please your senses and offer delightful holiday accommodation. A swimming pool is available for guests of the cottage suite ... just perfect!

Nora Suite:
With a charm all of its own the Nora suite consists of a very traditional Cape Dutch double bedroom, charmingly decorated with old style windows that open on to your own private patio with a large shady tree under which there is a table and chairs and umbrella for dining, breakfast or sundowners. The ensuite bathroom is a modern delight with a luxury shower area and double vanity basin. Also in this unusual suite is a kitchenette with a table and chairs for dining and a delightful lounge area. Truly an experience of a bygone area - the Nora suite offers you an idyllic stay! Of course you will also have use of the swimming pool in the main garden area as well.

Loft Suite:
Take a trip up a winding outside staircase to paradise; our loft suite with its unique features, though smaller than the other suites will steal your heart away! At the top of the stairs you will find a large private tiled patio with views over the mountains and the bay - delightful to say the least! A charming teak table and chairs with umbrella set the scene for breakfast, or perhaps dinner under the stars and of course sundowners would be a must.

Pots of Hibuscus and Oleander flowers compliment this idyllic outside setting and two deck chairs and an outdoor shower are the cherry on the top! Now through the double doors to the living area with a pitched white wooden roof with skylights in each room; a uniquely decorated lounge / dining room / kitchenette and a separate door leads you into the double bedroom which is so enticing it will steal your heart away. A double bed under a skylight (watch the stars play in the sky at night as you drift off into dreamland)!

The bathroom has a character of its own; pebbled floors, a shower and also a round bath with a seat in it; perfect for sharing a glass of champagn! Our loft suite may be smaller than the other suites but it more than makes up for size with its charm and stunning patio and views - truly a special place in the sun! Guests in the loft suite have use of a swimming pool in the main garden as well … this suite offers a truly unique experience for the young at heart romantic!
