Spacious & Tranquil Escape






As we are fully self-catering, we currently operate purely as a residential establishment with minimum leases of one week at super low Covid19 budget rates.

We cannot offer any hospitality services as per SACoronavirus and SATSA websites:

We have remote controlled gate access and residents have their own remotes so will not have contact with anyone else.

Entrances to these units are approximately 20 metres apart and residents are not in close contact whatsoever.

We undertake extensive cleaning and disinfecting for preventing the spread of COVID-19, before and after every stay, with a full 24 hour break between bookings.

Our onsite staff wear gloves and face masks as well as face shields while cleaning, and use alcohol hand rub before and after wearing gloves.

We will supply handwash and sanitizers in units.
