Breathtaking views surround and nature feeds your soul

The space

The log cabin is situated in a private estate perched high in the Phantom forest the views are breathtaking even after the fires of June 2017. Catch 22 – so named for the miracle of engineering that facilitated access yet ensured seclusion – is about as home from home as you could hope for. Crockery & linen are quality & the little kitchen perfectly appointed. There are 3 comfortable bedrooms downstairs and a loft bedroom ideal for two kids. Bathroom has shower and sit bath & we encourage our guests to be mindful of water conservation. Knysna, a popular tourist destination is just 12 kms away with world class restaurants, shops, waterfront and beaches. This place is the perfect spot to unwind and take in nature and very popular with cyclists and hikers alike. The beautiful Simola Golf Estate and Spa can be seen just across the valley and day guests are welcomed.
