The cottage is separate from the main house, so guests are completely private. It features 2 bedrooms, one of which is a huge loft room, a pristinely appointed full bathroom, small fully fitted kitchen and cosy lounge area. It also has its own private patio. Covered parking near the door makes it perfect for complete privacy, if required.
The property offers a regular sized pool, large lawn and an expansive view over the Prestbury valley.

The space

We built the cottage to our own taste and standards, with the idea of eventually living in it when retirement comes knocking.
We love wood, hence the solid wood staircase and the loft room floor. We both love an attractive bathroom, so we spent a bit of extra time designing it.
And we (I) love cooking, so the kitchen had to be more than just a kitchenette... :-)

Guest access

Guests have exclusive use of the cottage and its patio, so they can be perfectly private if they like. There is a portable braai on the patio as well.

Guests can also use the pool and the main patio with built-in braai facilities - just give us a heads-up!

Interaction with guests

I work from home, so I'm around most of the day, unless I'm meeting with clients. We want guests to feel at home and comfortable to ask anything!

Other things to note

We are animal lovers and have two large Labs. They are quite protective over the property, but once you're in, they will love and protect you as well.
They occasionally make a run for the open gate, so we ask that guests just keep an eye out for them when opening and closing the gate.
We ask that guests give them as much love as they want, but please don't feed them scraps or snacks - we're trying to get the big one to lose some weight!
We provide a light breakfast of snack yoghurts, cereal and fresh fruit. A tea / coffee station is also provided, with milk in the fridge.
Daily "clean-up" can be arranged at a small additional fee.

George's home is beautiful! Very homely and the host was very welcoming. It's clean and in a quiet suburb. Definitely going back

I wrote glowingly about every aspect of this Airbnb experience the first time I stayed and my return experience was just as satisfying. So 10/10 for consistency! George and Hannelie were, again, superb hosts and welcomed me warmly into their home and lives. What lovely people. When I return to PMB in the future I will most definitely try to stay here again.

If you're looking for top notch accommodation in PMB, this is it. A safe, spacious, private, well designed and decorated apartment, with every appliance a person could possibly need. Secure, covered parking for my car was an added bonus. And, what a wonderful view! Was greeted by the smiling and extremely helpful George who couldn't have been more welcoming. I so enjoyed the stay that I didn't want to leave. I will most definitely be back.

The hospitality, kindness and friendliness of our hosts George and Hannelie made our stay all the more memorable. Our hosts assisted us with transport back to the cottage as our car was selfishly blocked in at our Durban accommodation. The cottage was perfect for us and we both got a good night's rest after a stressful day. The view the next morning was breathtaking. We would not hesitate to stay here again when next in the area.
