A truly magnificent one of a kind treasure nestled in the Kogelberg Biosphere mountains just outside of Pringle Bay. This is a totally off the grid upmarket establishment set on 21HA of pristine untouched Fynbos, showing you it is possible to have luxury while looking after the environment at the same time.

This home is fully equipped, modern and totally off the grid, set in the most magnificent surroundings on 21HA of pristine Fynbos for you to explore. You will be in total peace and quiet but with the bustle of the small towns of Rooi Els, Pringle Bay and Bettys Bay right next door, if you need. Hermanus and all she has to offer is a mere 40 minutes away. So whether you would like to immerse yourself in nature, hiking in the mountains, watching penguins and whales, mountain biking, surfing or you would like to do a bit of shopping, delicious dining out or arting, your surrounding area has all of this on offer, making this a perfect base to have a fun filled peaceful break form the hustle of life. The only problem is the property itself is so spectacular you won't want to leave this beautiful spot. You will be torn between relaxing in the beauty of Tranquility Heights or exploring your surrounding area, it has that much to offer.

This beautiful home is well designed to allow everyone their own space whilst enjoying some of the most spectacular mountain and sea views the Kogelberg has to offer. This is a unique property surrounded by a world heritage site of natural and magnificent Fynbos, not to be found anywhere else in the world.

The house has a fully equipped kitchen and scullery as well as a kitchenette and allows for fantastic indoor living, on those windy days, as well as wonderful outdoor patio living for those special windless days. This is a 4/5 bedroomed home which sleeps 10 in total but can also sleep only two very cosily. It is designed in such a way as to allow for expansion for larger parties, or reduction for just two, for a romantic getaway. Two of the bedrooms are en suite as well as there being a large shower room for the remaining two bedrooms (if there are no kids this could also be en suite). All the bedrooms have good quality linen and towels with extra blankets for those cold wintery nights.

Room Configuration

  • 1 bedroom - Queen en suite
  • 2 bedroom - Queen en suite
  • 3 bedroom - Twin, two single beds
  • 4 bedroom - Double bunk bed with a single bunk above and a single pull out bed underneath (recommended for children)
  • Kitchenette/Lounge - double sleeper couch
  • Shared shower

Please Note: This property is not recommended for crawling babies and toddlers due to the height off the ground. Young children will need to be watched and supervised carefully and are the parents full responsibility.

We have really wanted our guests to step out of their lives and come and enjoy the peace of this unique property, so there is no television, however there is a TV with a DVD player for those rainy days when the kids need to be occupied (a few childrens DVDs are on offer and you are welcome to bring your own). There is uncapped Wi-Fi which can also be turned off if you would prefer to be totally off the grid. This is a house that is run entirely off the grid (you wouldn't know unless you were told, that is how fantastic the system is) so it truely is unique.

You will need your own transport or a hired car to be able to explore the surrounding areas. Access to the property is via a 1km long dirt road that will need to be driven on slowly. I have a Fiat 500 and can get up fine however I do drive slowly and carefully.

Absolutely magnificent sun/moon rises/sets can be seen from the patio and house of this special home, the views truly are unsurpassed, so we would love you to come and share in this very special one of a kind gem with us at some point.

We are there personally to check you in and get you settled and after that we will be available if you need us. I am sure you would rather be left to enjoy the peace of your surroundings in this beautifully tranquil spot.

Things to note:

  • As this is in a UNESCO Heritage Site the surrounding environment needs to be conserved and looked after carefully so we ask that you respect your surrounds. No vegetation to be picked or removed at any time. Please note that this is also part of a nature reserve so you do need to be aware of snakes, scorpions, baboons and other wildlife, treating them with respect and taking the necessary precautions. No feeding or capturing of wildlife is allowed.
  • There is a strict no fire policy except in the designated braai and then this has to be carefully monitored and put out thoroughly when you are done.
