Handpicked for you...

This gorgeous home is a real escape to nature. I personally love this style of house with its packed slate walls, big wrap around decks, latte overhangs providing plenty of shade.

While away the hottest karoo afternoons in your favourite spot. The interior of the cottage is a delightful surprise with big comfy couches, beautiful decoration, rugs, throws, comfy cushions reflecting the great style of the owners. My biggest thrill is that this house is 100% off the grid, solar power provides all the electricity and gas heats the geysers and stove for cooking. But don’t let this stop you lighting all the candles and lanterns to enjoy the huge star filled karoo sky – take a bath outside! Heaven!!

The cottage is nestled deep into a private nature reserve off the famous R62. Expect to see buck, zebra and wildlife whilst walking or hiking round the reserve. To cool off there is a small rock pool plus river running next to the house or take a five minute drive to the lake in the heat of the summer. Take your binoculars, walking shoes, good food, wine, company and get away from the city in this perfect bush hideaway!

5 min drive to the lake for swimming, canoeing, fishing and boating – if you bring your own boat (no motor boats allowed).

    We had the most blissful two days at Stoney Cottage, which was a real treasure!

  • Guest

    We loved the location and house being just next to the river. We hiked and used the 4x4 route. The set-up in the kitchen was very luxurious, more utensils than you could wish for. We loved all the comfy spots, couches, loungers and the big table. All it all, great holiday home! Would definitely book again.

    My friend and I highly enjoyed our stay at Stoney Cottage! We felt sufficiently isolated to really enjoy the beautiful nature around us but had some pleasant encounters with other residents at the surrounding cottages as well. So we knew we were not totally alone in the middle of nowhere. The cottage itself is beautiful. It's perfect! We were very happy with our stay and all staff members I was in contact with prior to booking one of your Perfect Hideways and have already recommended you to friends and family

  • Guest

    We absolutely loved Stoney Cottage. It was beautifully constructed and fit perfectly with the surroundings. The rock pool was great, the rooms were excellent, the beds and linens really comfortable and the house really well kitted out. We will definitely consider a return visit next time we are in SA. The park was safe and stunning, particularly the sunsets and the stars.

    A great website to look for gorgeous places to spend some days, without having the stress of owner upkeep and all that jazz. Stoney Cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed. Would recommend to family and friends.
