We love our garden and bird life which we share with you for your pleasure. We have demarcated areas where new flowers, bulbs and vegetables are growing. Please take care when walking around these beds.

When having a braai or making use of the fire pit, please use water to dampen the fire when done to prevent any accidental fire hazards getting out of hand.

We supply a complimentary pack of dry wood and fire lighters for one braai.

                      We really enjoyed our stay in this comfortable venue on the edge of town, outside of the hustle & bustle. A bit of a walk into town, but quite doable. Note: If you're in town over a busy weekend, be sure to book a spot at your favorite restaurant ahead of time.

                      Unbelievable place to recharge your battery's and to observe nature at its best.

                      Very peaceful, beautiful spot to get away from it all and just relax but clise enough to the village to appreciate what clarens has to offer from art galkerys to cafe and pubs.Hosts Sherene and Roy went out of their way to make one feel at home.
