About Tamodi Lodge and Stables
Tamodi Lodge and Stables was created by Lynne and Owen Johnston, their inspiration born out of love for horses and the beautiful valleys of the Crags. This passion is reflected in the carefully designed main house and stable buildings which blend with the bush and natural environment. The setting is peaceful and relaxing, offering two luxury rooms and a honeymoon suite.
The property forms part of a natural conservancy area and is also a working equestrian farm with riding school. There are unfenced dams and an rimflow pool, so please take care. There is a hiking trial and mountain biking close by with Keurbooms beaches only three minutes away.
The two standard rooms are luxuriously appointed with underfloor heating, heated towel rail, safe, DSTV, WIFI internet and balcony.
The honeymoon suite is very spacious, 75m2, with walk-in cupboard, underfloor heating, heated towel rail, safe, DSTV, DVD, WIFI internet connection, bar fridge and outdoor shower. We do not recommend children under eight but on application we can make arrangements if the guest takes the whole guest house.
Breakfast and Dining
Tamodi provides a full country breakfast but lunch and dinner can be enjoyed at any of the fine restaurants in Plettenberg Bay, The closest (3 minutes away) is Enrico’s at Keurboomstrand, overlooking the bay, 'Bahia Formosa', beautiful bay as it was originally called by the Portugese in 1577.
There is secure parking on site. The farm is 30 ha, with a large portion indigenous forest valley with an adventurous hike(3three hours) to the mouth of the Matjies River (northern boundary of the farm) and Enrico’s restaurant. Here you will find the Matjies River Archaeologiacl Site and the Matjies River Rock Shelter. This was inhabited by middle stone age man (millions of years ago) for over 100 000 years with the Khoisans leaving a legacy of tools and ornaments.
The rimflow pool is ideal for cooling off in summer or just relaxing in and enjoying the view or relax inside in the library while sipping your afternoon tea.
