Heartwood Homestead

Heartwood Homestead is a comfortable space which is completely off-grid, boasting our awesome dry compost toilet system (which is very different to a long drop), solar electricity, rain water harvesting and grey water management. Many of the furnishings utilized reclaimed timber, the Yellow wood and Oregon close to 100 years old. The house has a mezzanine floor with a double bed and there is a single sleeper couch in the living room. The bathroom is equipped with a shower. The kitchen is equipped with a hob and a fridge. There is no oven. The comfortable living area leads onto a balcony with magnificent views. The braai / fire pit has a great sunset view over the valley and former neighbouring reserve.The farm borders the meandering Gonubie river, with secluded pools, accessible via forest paths.We provide recycling and composting facilities. As well as farm tours, where children can help collect eggs, feed the animals and try their hand at milking a cow.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why do I have to pay a deposit?

    This is a sign of good faith. Properties hold rooms for you, which they could sell to someone else, so if you don't turn up, they lose revenue. By paying a deposit of 50% (industry standard) you show the property that you are intending to arrive and they will accordingly turn others away.

    Can I pay the deposit at month end?

    That depends on the property. Many have real time booking calendars, allowing people to book instantly online. If that's the case, bookings are first-come-first-book, and no rooms will be held provisionally unless specifically arranged. Send a request and ask for a specific payment date and they'll get back to you.

    What is 3D Secure?

    This is a security layer which checks that the person making the payment is the authorised cardholder by way of a one-time pin delivered by SMS or a secret code, ensuring the safety of your card.

    3D secure is a legislated prerequisite for all online purchases in South Africa.
