DE KOM COTTAGE
Self-catering Cottage in an exquisite natural setting
Take the winding road through citrus orchards and natural fynbos along a stream deep into the mountains and you will discover romantic De Kom self-catering cottage. Set in a natural mountain basin 2 km from the other cottages, it is truly private and isolated from the stresses of the outside world.
The charming self-catering accommodation has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, and the other with two ¾ beds, plus a double sleeper couch in the lounge. (maximum 6 people).
The kitchen is well equipped with a stove, fridge and microwave.
The sitting room has an indoor fireplace and double French doors, leading out onto the undercover stoep with spectacular views over the plunge pool to the valley below.
The pool, filled with spring water, overlooks citrus orchards in front, with the majestic Cederberg Mountains providing a dramatic backdrop. Pool loungers complete the feel of bush luxury and relaxation.
The open-air bathroom built with local sandstone is another favourite feature. It has a bath, shower and toilet.
De Kom is set in a 2000 ha wilderness area where guests can hike through the veld or to the Rooibos tea plantations, take a 4x4 drive, and swim in the secluded mountain dam approximately 300 meters from the cottage. Small game abound around De Kom and, during the late afternoons, guests can watch as eagles hunt for basking dassies on the cliffs in front of the cottage.
