Romantic Self-catering Cottage for a Couple
Stonehaven is set high on the mountainside surrounded by fynbos and sandstone formations and boasts spectacular views over the valleys and onto the impressive Cederberg mountains.
It was designed to accommodate one couple only. The accent is on romance and total privacy and the setting would appeal to honeymooners and couples seeking a chic bush getaway.
The open-plan design incorporates a bedroom area (boasting a queen-size brass bed), a lounge, kitchen and a dining area. The lounge is furnished around the indoor fireplace to warm guests on cold winter evenings. The bathroom with shower is separate and in the bedroom there is a romantic double bath with a view into the veld for couples who want to relax and savour the mountain ambience from the luxury of their bath.
The cottage is powered by solar energy, except for the stove and geyser which are gas operated. Guests can charge computers, cellphones and cameras and also still use the fan to cool off during those warm summer evenings. Hairdryers unfortunately do not work on this solar system.
The front stoep affords spectacular views into the mountain and has a built-in braai and patio table. A sparkling splash pool is set on the same level for easy access. Pool loungers and an umbrella complete the feeling of laid back luxury and relaxation, with another built-in braai at the poolside.
A favourite feature has proven the be the bath (with hot water) set against a rock in the open air, with views over the valley.
PLEASE NOTE: Stonehaven only accommodates two adults.
