The Karoo is an area of South Africa that still offers that unspoilt magic that is becoming more and more rare in the fast-paced, high tech world we live in today. There are few places where you can really escape and find total tranquillity and this home is one of them.
Absolute privacy guaranteed, not a neighbour in sight, the home sits comfortably in its surroundings. Off the grid, solar power and gas provide all the electricity needs.
Packed slate walls, big comfy sofa's, throws and rugs, wicker and wood, all combine to make a most inviting interior.
In the evenings, light candles and lanterns so as not to detract from the huge star filled Karoo sky.
The colours inside are suitably muted and subtle, perfectly echoing the surroundings.
Big wrap around decks with latte ceilings provide shelter from the hot Karoo sun.
The cottage is situated in a private nature reserve. You might well see buck, zebra and other wildlife whilst sipping your sundowner.
Bedrooms are simple, yet luxurious, perfect for a good night's sleep after a hard day doing....well...nothing!
You have the option of taking a bath here, or you might decide to take a dip in a small rock pool and river running next to the house.
So why don't you take some good food, good wine and good company and get away from the city in this perfect bush hideaway!
Till next time
