Hoopoe Haven is a small and peaceful country guest house, situated in beautiful Chartwell, but it is just a stones throw away from Montecasino leisure complex, Dainfern golf course, 3 shopping malls, Lanseria and live theatre just to name a few highlights.

Hoopoe Haven is positioned on 2 acres of landscaped gardens in the countryside with Horse trails and a beautiful view of the Magaliesburg Mountains. It is a place to relax and unwind in the peace and quiet of the countryside. One can watch the magnificent birdlife while you have a sundowner or a braai on the patio or a cooling swim in our crystal clear pool, with a beautiful sunset in the background. If you decide to stay up late on a clear evening you may even be lucky enough to hear the roar of the lions from the lion park.

We have a variety of self-catering accommodation available to suite groups from 1 person to 25 including our 5 bedroomed Lodge building, luxury cottages, budget cottages (also pet friendly) and ultra luxury tents.


The lodge building consists of the 5 rooms sleeping up to 11 guests which are let out on a bed and breakfast basis normally (please view our web site on Wheretostay under bed and breakfast for details) however we also let it out on a block booking of the whole lodge on a self catering basis.

Please note there is a two day minimum stay for this option

Luxury self-catering cottages

The three two-bedroomed cottages in the lodge grounds are absolutely magnificent and ideal for large families or groups from four to 15 guests.

Guinea Fowl 5-6 Sleeper Self-Catering Cottage:

A lovely two-bedroomed self-catering thatch cottage, which sleeps up to five guests. The downstairs area of the cottage consists of the main bedroom with either a king bed or twin beds, a comfortable lounge with TV and DSTV feed from the lodge and a DVD player, a spacious dining room, a bathroom which conforms to our normal luxurious standards and a fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs is a spacious loft with up to three single beds or a king bed. It is next to the swimming pool.

Bokmakerie and Piet-My-Vrou:

Back-to-back self-catering cottages (4-6 sleeper). These cottages are identical and have an inter-leading door which can effectively turn them into one 12 sleeper cottage they each have:

Upstairs: an open plan TV lounge and 3-4 sleeper dormitory

Luxury Tents

We have jumped on the bandwagon of a new concept called Glamping - "GLAMorous camPING" and have recently completed our very first luxury tents The Spotted Dikkop (Sleeps 3) and The Eagle Owl (Sleeps 6). However, these are not just any tents - they combine the luxury you would expect from Hoopoe Haven with the atmosphere of being outdoors, sleeping in a tent and enjoying the spectacular afternoon sunsets and evening stars while sipping on sundowners or enjoying your braai. It is Hoopoe Haven in a tent!

Spotted Dikkop (3 Sleeper) and Eagle Owl (6 Sleeper) Each of these ultra luxury tents consist of the following:

Built under a large thatch lapa so that you get maximum protection from the elements Tiled bathroom with both shower and bath (hot and cold water) Carpeted bedroom Carpeted lounge with TV (piped satellite) Outside fully equipped kitchen including gas stove under the thatch patio. Eagle Owl has Serengeti flap doors can be opened out in summer or enclosed in winter. Spectacular braai area looking out onto a secluded expanse of lawn and landscaped gardens.

Please be aware that we are not allowed, by municipality regulation, to hold loud parties.
