Each bedroom faces onto spectacular views overlooking the valley.
The loft is situated above the lounge. Two single beds in the loft provide additional sleeping space. It can be separated from the lounge area, and also doubles as a reading room.
The lounge is tastefully appointed and equipped with a compact disk player and satellite television. Indulge in a decade old bottle of the best South African red wine around the log fire, or cook up a warm dinner - you will find the kitchen well equipped with every convenience.
The braai area - "braai" is the local term for a barbecue - is situated by the pool under the pines. A wooden deck extends over the valley and offers a splendid venue for sundowners, but is not for the faint hearted as it is quite a drop to the river below.
Down by the riverside you may discover the peaceful contentment that has drawn many city folk to relocate to the Knysna area in recent years. The Knysna forest has inspired authors and artists, and is in part a nature reserve. The nearby estuarine wetland and eco reserve is home to over 150 bird species and a variety of small game.
The 120-year-old mining town (now a ghost town) of Millwood is within short driving distance in the direction of Rheenendal. Should you prefer to go out at night, nearby Knysna has many world-class restaurants, a bustling waterfront and exciting nightlife.
