About Karoo Cottage

The tranquil, arboreal village of Loxton is a tiny settlement of sixty-five permanent residents living in the town itself, and is a destination that speaks of silence, sunsets and stars. Set in a landscape that offers natural beauty year-round, each season brings something.

Come and enjoy tranquility and our vast open spaces that allow one to relax, breathe deeply, and experience true peace of mind. Spend a few days, experience the pleasures of Karoo living, and discover why Lawrence Green called this ‘the land of the stoep’.

ACCOMMODATION

Karoo Cottage is a single-unit renovated cottage situated beneath a giant pine tree in the tranquil Great Karoo village of Loxton. It consists of one main living/bedroom that’s air-conditioned, and there’s an en suite bathroom and separate kitchen. The tiled bathroom comprises a basin, toilet, and shower plumbed with copper pipes.

Karoo Cottage is fully equipped for self-catering (fridge, microwave, 2-plate gas stove, sink, crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils etc).

The large bedroom / living area is wall-to-wall carpeted and has one double bed, one single bed, a table & four chairs, and other small furnishings, which are in the most part in keeping with an ‘old Karoo’ atmosphere. The cottage has a TV.

In summer, a mosquito net, suspended above the double bed, keeps those Karoo mosquitoes away. Linen is pure cotton percale; duvets are down & feather; blankets are fleecy; wall heaters, electric blankets, and the split-unit air conditioner keeps you snug in winter. The air conditioner also keeps you cool in summer, but if you prefer more natural airflow, a mosquito screen-door allows breezes.

FACILITIES

Due to popular demand, there is no TV in the cottage. This may be a culture shock to some, but once our guests spend their evenings stargazing and reading, they claim to relax more as they re-discover the simpler things in life. There is a selection of magazines in the cottage, and we have a good range of fiction available on loan for those spending a few days.

Parking is alongside the cottage behind a lockable gate and beneath a shade-net carport. At the rear of the cottage, a table and chairs are set out alongside a small stone braai area. We can supply wood and firelighters at a nominal fee. Braai packs can also be supplied by prior arrangement.

DINING & MEALS

As Loxton is somewhat isolated in terms of accessibility to shops, we request that all meals are arranged in advance. If you are self-catering, we suggest that you bring your food along. There are two tiny general dealers in Loxton but they sell only the barest of essentials and are closed from 13h00 Saturday until 08h30 Monday.

There are no restaurants to dine out at in the evening, but we do have a small coffee shop that’s open 9-5 Monday to Fridays, and 9-12 on Saturdays.

NOTES

Please note that fuel is only available from the farmer’s co-op, which operates according to Karoo business hours i.e. 8-5 on weekdays, and 8-12 on Saturday. It is closed over weekends and on public holidays.

For those who enjoy beautiful sunsets overlooking never-ending plains, we direct our guests to various sites ideal for sundowners. Our village is full of interesting architecture and we can also supply a small map on which we point out buildings of interest.

Karoo Cottage was the perfect start to the holiday. Great hospitality of the people at Karoo Cottage makes Loxton a fantastic over night experience. Fully equipped for cooking and braai adds to the awesome experience of money well spent. I will highly recommend taking a detour via Loxton to experience the peacefulness at Karoo Cottage!! Thanks Steve!!!

The Karoo Cottage took me back to my youth when we spend time on the farm. It felt like home and every detail has been thought of and provided for. Immaculately clean and comfortable, I recommend it to any descerning traveller. Steve was the perfect host and Loxton, a beautiful gem in the heart of the Karoo. Well done!
