Tiny home in Joubertina
Birch Cabin, Twee Riviere
Birch Cabin is a one-of-a-kind. A perfectly romantic delight... Part tiny house, part lakeside cabin, part treehouse - lovingly crafted Birch Cabin occupies a domain all its own: Overlooking both the Tweerivier creek and its own, tree-lined lake, this shingle-roofed hideaway offers unexpected refinement. The cabin has a delightful, jewel-box quality, finely finished, authentic craftsmanship, massive timbering, a piano, fireplace, jetty, library & more... (Fully backed up power: No load shedding)

Cottage in Dargle
Beautiful Breeze Cottage
Beautiful Breeze Cottage sits among the stunning hills of the Dargle Valley. It overlooks 3 tranquil dams, rolling pastures and an indigenous forest. There are cattle and horses in the fields, abundant bird life to enjoy and peacefulness to breath in. It's the perfect place to recharge while escaping the pressures of city life and with the Midlands Meander on our doorstep you can be as busy or as quiet as you choose. The farm is now fully off Eskom power so load shedding is a distant memory.
