 Close your eyes and picture a double-storied thatch house, situated on the edge of a lake. You can see mountain views from every window. Imagine walking a few steps down to the bank of this Lake Madingofani (also know as Castleburn Lake) and casting your line into the water in an attempt to hook a trout. Lift your eyes up and view the mountain splendours of the Southern Berg range. See the 'Rhino Horn', tall and strong. In winter experience the frozen lake edges and bracing cold as you gaze on the snowy mountain ranges. Return to the warmth of the house with its underfloor heating and wood fueled furnace and enjoy your cup of tea or coffee.

Summertime allows you to enjoy the coolness of the thatch house and refreshing swims in the lake and swimming pool. Relax around evening braai's on the patio and enjoy the sound of birds and geese preparing for bed.

This home is situated in the wonderful Gold Crown timeshare estate of Castleburn and our guests have full access to all the amenities offered on the estate.
