About Peter Bonney Clarens Studio Lodge
Peter and Janis Bonney's Studio Lodge offers quality self-catering accommodation at its very best in the quaint village of Clarens. The lodge is located in the heart of the village. It is owned and operated by well known South African artist Peter Bonney and his wife Janis.
Studio Lodge is an annex to Peter's studio so you have the opportunity of enjoying your accommodation in Clarens all but in the studio of one of South Africa's recognized contemporary hyper-realist artists.
Self Catering accommodation
The lodge sleeps four people in two rooms, one with double bed and the second with two singles. Both rooms are cozy warm in winter with under carpet heating and beds with electric blankets and hot water bottles provided. All linen and towels are provided and, in addition to quality duvets on the beds there are additional warm blankets available for those cold Clarens winter nights.
The two rooms share a cozy well-appointed bathroom with toilet, bath, and spacious shower. There is a built in three bar infrared bathroom heater for your winter comfort.
The living area is comfortably appointed and beautifully warmed in winter by way of a cast iron slow combustion wood burning stove. You will never miss super rugby, your favourite football team, cricket or golf, nor your favourite doccie or soapie, because you have full DStv at your fingertips.
The stylish open plan kitchenette is part of your living area and is well equipped with superior appliances including microwave oven, counter top hob and under counter oven, toaster, kettle, two cup and six cup coffee plungers, dishwasher and fridge / freezer. All come as standard features. Good quality crockery, cutlery, glasses, cooking appliances and utensils are provided, as well as complimentary tea, coffee and creamer.
Through the sliding door and outside you will find a delightful little patio equipped with quaint patio furniture and a braai unit in an attractive treed garden. In spring and summer this garden patio is a tranquil haven in the heart of the village. The white-eyes and bulbuls are a dime a dozen and from time to time spot the resident black collared and crested barbet families, not to mention the occasional visiting sunbird enjoying the sap of our spring succulents. If youre lucky you could enjoy the unusual experience of one of our local Clarens gymnogenes gliding in and perching in the bluegum tree in the bottom of the garden. From September till March the roses bloom in spectacular profusion and are a sight for sore city eyes.

Peter's working studio and his Studio Lodge self catering establishment are located just one street off the Clarens town square, so if your intention in Clarens is the village, the shops, the galleries and the restaurants then you simply park, settle in and have no further use of your car for the duration of your stay.
The very unique aspect of Peters Studio Lodge is that on the street side all the shops, restaurants, galleries and facilities you need are no more than an easy few minutes walk away while on the garden side it is as if you were far from the madding crowd and in the mountains.
