Situated on the banks of the Kowie River - this 'heritage' home, sheltered from the prevailing wind, is within 500m of the centre of town and 150m from a number of good restaurants.

Our well-appointed self-catering apartment is separate from the main residence and located in the garden of the property. It features 2 double bedrooms (both en suite), with a combined kitchen and lounge area. (Access is via a short stairway , therefore not convenient for a disabled person or wheel chair). The apartment accommodates a couple, a family or party of 4 persons (maximum) as a private (solo occupancy) facility. A camp cot is available for a baby at no charge.

Of the 2 en suite bedrooms , one has a double bed and the other 2 single beds. The unit has a modern and fully equipped kitchen including bar fridge, microwave, counter-top oven / hot plates, electric frying pan, toaster and kettle. Cutlery, glassware and crockery are provided. A portable braai is available for use in the garden or at the water's edge. The lounge area is comfortable and has satellite T.V. (with full DSTV bouquet), as well as a DVD player.

Rooms are fitted with efficient / silent ceiling fans. Oil heaters, a digital safe and a hair dryer are provided. . Bed linen and towels are supplied (not beach / swimming towels), also a starter pack of essentials for refreshment, as well as soaps and toilet tissue. Guests have the use of a laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer, also a large fridge and freezer. Off street parking is provided behind a locked gate and within a well-lit area for one vehicle and a trailer.

The area hosts an abundant variety of bird life, both large (Crowned Hornbill, Knysna Lourie etc.), and small (Waxbills, Sunbirds, Orioles, Canaries and more). A variety of Water Birds are always present, as well as a number of Kingfisher species - very busy along the riverbank in their quest to catch a fishy snack.

With easy access to the river , the accommodation facility offers a variety of boating and riverside activities including good fishing, pumping for bait and related river pursuits. The mooring of a guest's boat (at no charge) is also available. Guests have unlimited use of a fibreglass dinghy, fitted with an electric trolling motor. A complimentary river cruise is offered, either up river or through the Marina canals (applicable to a min. 2 night stay). Guests have private use of the large, sheltered verandah , 22m from the riverbank, and the expansive front lawn.

In a recent competition run by GUEST REVU for the SUNSHINE COAST TOURISM ACCOMMODATION EXCELLENCE AWARDS - we won FIRST PLACE in the self-catering category.
