Cabins sleep two people and have comfortable single beds with shelves, bedding & extra blankets for the winter. Single or shared occupation is available.

Our new cabin is suited for couples, containing a double bed.

Staying in a cabin includes:

  • Use of outdoor compost toilets.
  • The opportunity to participate in the different activities and offerings on the land (view calendar)
  • Use of the Darshan hall for yoga and meditation when it is not booked for classes or gatherings.  The Darshan hall has a fireplace.

The cabins are located close to trails through the indigenous fynbos and forests, on and around the land.
