About Farm 215 Nature Retreat

The reserve of Farm 215 is located mid-way on the tar road from Gansbaai to Baardskeerdersbos, Elim and onwards to Cape Agulhas.


Youíll find three, large freestanding suites along a meandering path surrounded by fynbos and birdlife. With 60m between each, your escape can be perfectly private or close (but not too close) to friends or family youíre with.

Sink into your king size bed, with 100% cotton percale linen and goose down bedding. Soak in the ample bath or shower the day away before wrapping up in one of our gowns.

The kitchen has a gas stove and oven, the water is heated with gas, so it is 100% loadshedding proof to make sure you can relax during your stay. Complete the picture with free Wi-Fi.

Watch nature do her thing from the comfort of deck chairs or your private, protected terrace. Kick back in front of the wood-fire stove or enjoy the fresh summer breeze coming in through the sliding doors in your living area.

Spend a summers evening on the deck braaing and enjoying the sunset.Take a dip in your private hot tub or in summer splash pool.

Sweeping views from all rooms and suites in all directions: over the Agulhas Plains towards the coastline, over the lake of Kraaiboschdam and surrounding vineyards and over endless fynbos and rows of Overberg mountains.

Reserve Facilities

On a hot summerís day, thereís nothing more refreshing than visiting our terrace to take a dip in our 25m long lap pool filled with nutrient-rich, golden mountain water. Soak up the sun and take in the views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Uilkraal valley.

Pull on your hiking boots, grab a bottle of water, and set off on our clearly marked, 3 hour long hiking trail to meet the flora and fauna of the Overberg. Itís an easy-to-moderate hike for those with a little experience under their belt.

Of our countless beautiful spaces to meander, a must-see is our forest, one of the official reforestation sites of South African Reforestation Trust. We remove alien vegetation and plant indigenous trees to support a flourishing ecosystem. You can also plant a tree here!

For the adventure seekers, donít forget your trusty bicycle, because our Mountain Bike routes will give you the ups and downs youíre looking for. Expect views. Expect uncharted terrain.

Bird-watchers, rejoice! The Overberg has over 300 species of birdlife from the large Blue Crane, South Africaís national bird, to the small Cape Sugarbird. The rare Cape Eagle Owl and Black Harrier both have raised chicks on the reserve for several consecutive years.

Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.

One of the most magical places on earth. The owner Maarten is an incredible host and together with his team, made our weekend a memorable and exceptional experience. The fynbos suites are maginificent and the horseride through the fynbos reserves should not be missed.
