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.
