La Chaumiere Guest House
The original section of this comfortable, charming home was built in 1906 and is surrounded by magnificent trees some 100 years old. The garden has numerous areas where guests can relax at the pool or follow the babbling stream through eighty acres of natural fauna and flora. The African thatch provides a cool haven in summer and in winter the oil heaters in each room, under floor heating in the main entertainment areas and the open fireplace make it cosy and warm. We share our home with our guests – a communal TV room where Mara has a marvellous collection of books, magazines and games. Some of the magazines are from way back……. 1950’s.
Four guest rooms in the main house all with windows overlooking the beautiful gardens. Three of these are bathroom en-suite and the fourth room has a private bathroom at the foot of the stairs:
• ‘Kosmos Kamer’ and ‘Die Bo Kamer’ Two very spacious rooms, one above the other.
• ‘Tuin Kamer’ and ‘Voëltjie Kamer’. Two smaller cosy rooms also one above the other.

• ‘Log Cabins’ on stilts high up among the tree tops situated next to each other. (Our delightfully new additions}
