We could only spend one night here and a few hours before and after sleep time.
The carved workmanship was evident in every detail of these rooms, including the hinges on the doors. The rooms were small and the stairs steep, but with a Jacuzzi on the top with a view, who cared.
I was amazed, and slightly intimidated at this shower that was sorta out there in the middle of everywhere, but the good news was that the house itself was in the middle of nowhere. The only thing out there was nature itself.
Since it is so far out the family offers a light supper. We chose a cauliflower soup with bacon bits and bread. The texture throws you off for the first couple of bites, but from then on it was delicious and filling. The carrot cake with vanilla sauce for dessert was worth the trip. Just check out this beautiful table and the unique chairs. And how about the wearing of the jackets while inside, and the roaring fire in the background in the middle of July? Those are the joys of being South of the equator in the winter.
Too soon we had to be on our way, but you can be assured we were headed for some excitement. I am pretty sure we left there to spend the entire afternoon ziplining, but that is another blog.
This guest house is in East London, built and designed by father and son, it is unique and a lovely place to relax and refresh after a long day’s drive.
Fruit and cereal on the porch of this safari tent B&B near George SA. From the main house, where we had our first taste of Nando’s chicken for dinner the night before, we walked to the tent after dark and could hear the ocean pounding on the shores of the bottom of the continent.
In 2005 this beautiful guest house was immaculate and a great place to stay. We had fun with the charming owner of this wild and wonderful Victorian house on a South African farm setting.
Our daughter spent 4 years in South Africa and we are so happy to have been able to visit there twice. We love the people we met there, marveled at the places we stayed and were happy with what each one had to offer. South Africa is a country to be celebrated, with so many diverse and beautiful people.
