Situated about 8 km from Wilderness village along the Garden Route, this secluded and private chalet lies nestled in and surrounded by forest. Enjoy the peace and serenity of this unique setting while staying close to the sea, beaches and restaurants. The chalet surroundings are beautiful and as a retreat one could spend all your time relaxing here, or use it as base to explore the Garden Route. All rooms open onto a spacious covered patio with lovely views. In addition there is a braai (barbecue) area with braai equipment (wood supplied). The kitchen is well equipped for self-catering, with gas stove and oven, fridge and freezer. The bathroom which has an outside entrance but is part of the chalet, has a shower, bath, basin, toilet and a clothes washer.

Enjoy the peace and serenity of this unique setting while staying close to the sea, beaches and restaurants. The chalet surroundings are beautiful and as a retreat one could spend all your time relaxing here, or use it as base to explore the Garden Route. All rooms open onto a spacious covered patio with lovely views. In addition there is a braai (barbecue) area with braai equipment (wood supplied). The kitchen is well equipped for self-catering, with gas stove and oven, fridge and freezer. The bathroom which has an outside entrance but is part of the chalet, has a shower, bath, basin, toilet and a clothes washer. The chalet is 15 minutes from Wilderness village with its numerous restaurants (some highly rated), variety of shops, liquor store, petrol station, bicycle and scooter hire, pharmacy and Friday night market with live music. It is also 20 minutes from the Wilderness beaches and lagoons. The village is located between two picturesque rivers, one of which flows into a beautiful vlei (lake) with associated wetlands. These environments are wonderful for birding. Canoes can be hired to explore these waterways. Other activities offered in Wilderness and surrounds include paragliding (tandem gliding available), abseiling, surfing, horse riding, mountain biking, water-skiing, sailing, fishing and quad biking. Numerous nature reserves with a network of hiking trails lie within easy reach of the chalet. The last 400 m of entrance road to the cottage is fairly rough and a pickup or SUV is recommended. However some guests have used normal vehicles, driven slowly without a problem. Mobile reception at the cottage is limited but there are areas nearby where the reception is better. If you don't feel like cooking, meals at extra cost can be arranged with us. My wife is an excellent cook! She is also a reflexologist - treat yourself to a session in the peaceful surroundings of the chalet.. We are pet friendly. More
