If it's too chilly to sit outside, stay warm and cozy inside with under floor heating wall mounted heaters and a gas fire, while still being able to enjoy the mountain views. You can also unwind by watching premium DStv or bring your favorite DVDs which can be played through the home theater centre with surround sound in the loft room, which over looks the open plan living area downstairs. The spacious, comfortable lounge / dining area has large windows and patio doors allowing the sunlight to enhance the ambiance.

When you do not want to eat out at one of the varied restaurants in the area the kitchens are well equipped. The utensils, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery are all of a high quality. The main house has a dishwasher, microwave, large electric stove and a full upright fridge. A chest-freezer is available for use in the automated double garage.

Verified reviewvery good

We had a wonderful time at The View once again. There are a few items in the house that need some TLC- I have mentioned these to Kerri already. Light switches tripped, the kitchen sink was blocked, the fire place switch was faulty. The kitchen cooking utensils could do with an upgrade, as some of the pans are burnt and there is insufficient dishes to cook in. The oven and stove top are also quite temperamental. Unfortunately due to the weather we were in doors quite a bit and these things were bought to our attention as we mainly ate at the house. Nevertheless we had a really wonderful time!
