Noetzie Forest Hideaway may be best suited to adventurous, ecologically sensitive travelers who enjoy being off the beaten track & off the grid. Venture into the heart of nature and explore the boundaries of the ocean & parallel views of the pristine river & valleys surrounding this hidden gem on the Garden Route! It`s so private & secluded that you would never guess you are a mere 16min drive from Knysna Town. This unique 2 bedroom family home sleeps 6 depending on configuration of occupants.
We offer a beautiful setting in which you can relax and shake off the city slumber, tucked away in indigenous forest. Drift off to sleep with the sound of the rambling ocean and awaken to early morning bird calls, a mischievous vervet monkey playing on the balcony, and sunlight filtering in through the roof-to-floor French doors and windows that slide open along the entire front of the house on both levels.
The upper level consists of 2 rooms. The master bedroom has a double bed as well as 2 small beds suitable for children. It`s full en-suite boasts a beautiful bath with forest views, with overhead shower and a loo. The adjacent room sleeps 2 on 2 single beds with a small shower and toilet en-suite. There is a day bed in the lounge as a sleeping option as well.
Good quality bedding can be expected, eco-friendly bath and cleaning products are available, and should be used solely, as the septic system cannot tolerate chemicals.
The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering, minus any high wattage appliances that would deplete the solar. Due to the solar power, it is best to charge laptops and the likes in daylight, and to keep in mind that the power won`t support high wattage appliances like hairdryers or toasters.
The kitchen leads into an open-plan dining area and spacious lounge, both of which open onto the deck overlooking the river and ocean, with a large wooden table and comfortable loungers for sharing mealtimes and good conversations at.
The house is situated in a private Nature Reserve, home to abundant bird and wildlife.
The enchanting 400m forest walk (on a wooden boardwalk) from the car park and the steep stairs leading to this unique home, are well worth it. Please note it is not wheelchair friendly and children will need to be watched, as the steep stairs and balconies on both floors are not child proof.
