Well positioned within a Security Estate, this Game Reserve styled Rondawel is nestled against a pine forest with views across an expansive , peaceful garden . You are sure to spot duiker, hares and abundant birdlife. Sit on your private verandah to watch the sunrise and to relax in the cool shade . Take a forest walk on the edge of the indigenous grasslands and then sit under the African sky whilst having a braai. The shower is great and you will be sleeping in a very comfortable bed.

The space
Our garden is peaceful, the cottage is comfortable and private. Access from the highway is quick and easy and once you are here, you will feel like you are miles away from the world we live in. This makes it a really convenient and rejuvenating base from which to explore the Midlands. The covered verandah overlooks the expansive garden : the perfect place to relax and have your coffee while enjoying the dawn of a new day. Inside the cottage the space feels cosy and spacious with the high thatched roof wrapping around you. The open plan living generates a sense of holiday ease. You will love to watch the stars twinkle at night from this little haven.

Guest access
You will have full access to explore the garden , the pool and the veggie garden. Our Smallholding offers a safe and beautiful place to wind down for an early evening walk. I am certain you will enjoy the big open skies and the magnificent display of backlit clouds at sunset!

A wifi modem is available on request. Please top up with data according to how much you require. (Please do not remove it from the cottage.)

Location

Howick, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Howick is well known for its absolutely beautiful weather, its gentle scenery and more recently its become famous for its very popular lunch destination, The Farmers Daughter at Yard 41 ! The setting is awesome, it overlooks the spectacular Falls gorge and the architecture is getting rave reviews. What a great new place to savour, with a trendy gift and decor shop, a world class nursery, a hip cycling shop and a busy hair salon to add to the vibe. This is a friendly part of the world! There is lots to do !
The Midlands Meander is popular for all sorts of reasons : The world famous Mandela Monument is close by, Midmar dam is across the road, Steampunk is within easy reach. ( Best coffee in town ) Piggly Wiggly is a great place for a family outing and hosts the popular weekly Park Run on a Saturday at 8am. Children love the putt putt course, the train ride and dipping candles. The Karkloof Market on a Saturday morning also is a great way to start the day. Cycling routes abound in the area.This is cycling heaven! The Karkloof Canopy tour is an exciting experience. And if you enjoy a good hike, the Howick Falls Gorge Walk gives you a really rewarding experience at the foot of the mighty waterfall. The Wessa Umgeni Nature Reserve is right on our doorstep. The zebras are as tame as ever you might imagine! You may even like to volunteer some time looking after wild animals at Freeme... There is more than enough exploring to do in this well loved part of South Africa. Welcome to hospitable KZN.
And remember... our sectet garden cottage has quick access onto the highway, which makes it the perfect stop-over and the perfect base ! We will look after you with good old fashioned hospitality standards!
