From the owner

Our charming country manor is located in the tranquil peri urban neighbourhood of Chelsea Conservancy with miles & miles of indigenous vegetation & wildlife, beautiful beaches, seaside villages, vibrant birdlife, hiking trails, scenic drives, country eateries & game parks.

A short stroll along the pathway will lead you to Bamboo Cottage tucked away under the trees, a cosy 1-bedroom sea-facing hideaway with en-suite bathroom & secluded entrance & the most amazing views you could wish for.

Bamboo Cottage is a peaceful forest hideaway located in a tranquil position of the property surrounded by Milkwood trees.

It features a kitchenette with a fridge, sink, toaster, microwave and a kettle for tea/coffee.

The shower is a generous size.

The cottage features a cosy bedroom with a window that looks out onto the natural vegetation providing guests with total privacy. The bedroom is furnished with a kingsize bed or 2 single beds.

The living area is relaxing with beautiful sea and countryside views. A glass sliding door opens out onto the covered deck which is equipped with a gas stove and kettle braai.

Ideal for 2 - 3 guest who love nature, vibrant birdlife and spectacular views.
