Our home

Our charming cottage is situated on a small game farm in Tulbagh 1:30 hours from Cape Town. It has spectacular views over the mountains and the game grazing area. There is an upstairs section with two en-suite rooms, each uniquely decorated. In the centre of the open-plan living area is a big fireplace, the meeting place of many during winter - a glass of red wine in the hand and good company! The downstairs section has a double room, small living area with sleeper couch and a kitchen and bathroom. There is no TV reception, so this is the place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the countryside (there is a TV and DVD machine however!).

We also have a 1 bedroom cottage in Natal should you prefer to be close to warmer seas rather!

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a family of three (Callie, Monique and Luc - 10 years old) and we love traveling the world. Us (the parents) have been to 40 countries and Luc has just logged his 12th. We love meeting new people, eating great food - and adventure! We are keen scuba divers - which got us into big trouble when we were kidnapped and held hostage for 4 months by terrorists - that has however not cured the travel bug. Callie works as a corporate banker, Monique runs a national charity and is also a motivational speaker, author and the co-host of a radio travel show. Luc is a budding author and swims for his school team. Then there is also Red, our very "people loving" red staffie. He is a real man - loves eating, walking and sleeping!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Eland's Rest cottage is located on a small game farm at the foot of the Witzenberg Mountains. It is nice and hot during summer and cold in winter. It is surrounded by some of the best wine estates in South Africa. Cape Town is just over an hour away and within 2 hours you can drive to the spectacular West Coast, see our famous Bushman drawings, go to a game park where you can see the big 5 and view our famous wild flowers during season. You can do short hikes on the farm between zebra, eland or springbok , or longer ones up in the mountains. There are two swimming pools on the farm. Visit many of the wine estates, go horse riding or just chill out in front of the fire.

There is also a small sports car or a 4x4 for possible exchange. We also have a small cottage in Marina Beach on the East Coast of SA in Natal that sleeps 4. For more info on Natal -
