Nature, horses, peace, sauna, wood-fired hot tub, swimming, playground, cycling, hiking, birds, wildlife. We have built an off the grid sustainable living paradise and would like to share the space and if you are keen knowledge. We offer discounts for longer retreats, please enquire
“The Treehouse is incredible. It's obviously not super spacious, but also not cramped. A couple can easily stay there for many days. The bedroom is in the back where it's a lot cooler and has big and comfortable bed. There's a small bathroom with modern appliances. The kitchen allows for some light cooking and is well equipped. WiFi is available inside the Treehouse and worked pretty well. On the property that's shared with the owners, you find friendly horses, shady spots to hang out and a big pond to have a refreshing swim. It's all very peaceful. At night you also get to see a beautiful starlit sky. The property is just a few minutes drive from Swellendam, so although you're in the countryside, you're also not completely away from civilization. Marloth Nature Reserve is also very close where you can go on beautiful hikes. Our 4 night stay was an amazing experience. If you're looking for a peaceful down-to-earth stay, go here!”
Very private and luxurious mountain Cottages with a contemporary design embracing nature and relaxation.
“We spent a wonderful weekend with friends at this magical retreat set in a very beautiful part of the country! It was such a luxury to just hang out at the cabins, take a walk, have a dip in the dam, and just switch off & enjoy. The cabins are very clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated. An unexpected delivery of some delicious farm produce was a very thoughtful gesture hugely appreciated! Communication was seamless throughout too, which always makes the booking process and check-in so much easier. Highly recommended for an extremely relaxing time in Swellendam.”
2 Cottages in a peaceful setting. Crockery, cutlery, bedding and towels provided. Our 3 resident donkeys will greet you & our roaming chickens might pop by to say hello. If country living is your thing & you love animals, you'll love your stay. We intend making our cottages pet friendly but at the moment we are still making sure ours is a safe and happy place for both your pets and ours. If Dolittle is booked, please try Doless which is right next door & idential other than colour of decor.
“Doolittle lodges are a gem for scenic respite. The decor is phenomenal, the kitchen amenities have all your needs, the rooms are so comfortable and fully furnished. We loved the friendly donkeys and lamb that will greet you across the fence. Sitting outside in the evening you can enjoy the fireplace. Lisa is such a gracious hostess and recommended wonderful day trips and places to eat. Truly a highlight of our travels to rest here. Thank you, Lisa 🤗”
