The space
Villa is situated in a quiet no through lane of 7 homes with easy access to the N2.
Parking are free and marked out to the front of the house.
The Villa has a special and unique setting that invites you to relax and let the stresses and strains of life retreat. Old and new have been cleverly blended resulting in a luxurious yet homely feel.

The Villa's entrance hall guides you into the large open plan living space and first sight of the setting, framed by full height glass doors.
This flexible living space boasts a large wood burning stove, bar, choice of seating, dining and access to the pool, decked veranda.

The ground floor also a guest toilet, bedroom No 1, a second flexible living space with Smart 58in TV, full DSTV service, large desk and office chair. Finally, the dining room leads onto a fully equipped kitchen.

Room No. 1 is a lovely bedroom with en-suite facilities and direct access to the pool and decked veranda. No. 1 benefits from a bath and separate shower, drinks fridge and tea tray with Nespressso.

The spacious dining room leads out onto a wood decked veranda and the lush garden. The perfect spot for breakfast to birdsong.
It also benefits from a wood burning Fire Pot made by a local potter.

The kitchen has all that you would need for self catering stays. The fabulous Bosch stove has gas rings and electric oven. Double door fridge freezer with ice maker, dishwasher, 2 sinks, coffee machine, instant hot water, and ample storage all your groceries.

The rest of the bedrooms are on the second floor.
Room No. 2 and No. 3 are similar in size and layout and have the special feature of full height folding doors which lead out to a private balcony, bringing a closer connection with the Lagoon. No. 2 is a modern and light room, with fitted furniture and No. 3 has an ' Out of Africa' feel with calm warm tones and restored antique furnishings. Both have powerful quiet ceiling fans. Room No. 2 can be made up as a King or twin beds.
Room No. 4 is the Master Suite. This room has air con, a roomy shower cubicle, vaulted ceiling and private balcony.
Finally, Room 5, is slightly smaller, again with en-suite facilities, a view over garden and no balcony, making it safer for young children. The king sized bed can again be made up as two single beds to suit your needs.

The third floor is totally given to the fabulous Roof Terrace, for you to enjoy as you wish: for your evening sundowner, lounging in the sun, eating as a group or for quiet reading. The view is simply fabulous.

I have had a love affair with South Africa and especially Wilderness since Gerrit, my husband, and I decided to spend time there after our wedding. We bought the Anchorage in 2015, decided to share this amazing place and despite some major hiccups we opened in Sept 2018. We love spending time here and are very proud of what we have achieved. We trust our guests to look after our home and hope you love your time there.
