Nestled in Champagne Valley with breath taking views over the Drakensberg, and a stone thrown from the famous Drakensberg Boys Choir, lies a unique accommodation, complete with private rockpool and boosting wonderoud art work by the owner. The attention to detail and creativity is phenomenal! Well worth the visit.
You are living in a work of art when you stay here. Steve Bull has a native talent and aesthetic that shines everywhere you look. From the waterfall shower to the the tiniest detail like the red "San painting" indicating which is the hot water in the sink, the place continuously unfolds as you stay there. The outdoor setting is just as stunning with the placement of rocks and the pool framing and complementing the unbelievable views of the mountain and valley. If you stay take a look at the book Estelle wrote about Steve to get a glimpse into his joyful contrarian soul. Beyond the "cave" are amazing hiking trails and lots else to do.
We had family visiting from Jersey in the Channel Islands & wanted somewhere that was a bit different & an interesting experience & we certainly had that at Steve & Estelle's place. Quirky accommodation with loads of artifacts & Steve's art adorning the walls in every space!! The views are "to die for" & the facilites are all you need for a comfortable stay. We took all 3 accommodations, including 'Diddly Squat' & they all had atmosphere & charm. As a large family we spent most of our time at the "Cave", as it has the large rock pool & the best views, so we would highly recommend it as a first option. Having said that, the Zulu Hut & Diddly Squat are also comfortable & have there own plunge pools for cooling off. It's not 5 star, but there is every thing you need for a self catering holiday & has so much atmosphere that anyone wil have a wonderful stay. They are sooo friendly & will assist you whenever you need & I would highly recommend their beautiful, interesting place to anyone.…
Steve and Estelle have a fabulous plot overlooking the valley. The fabulous artwork in the units is a great enhancement to the quirky experience. Having stayed in both the hut and cave a couple of years ago I couldn't wait to visit again and have just had an exceptional stay with a lovely warm welcome from them both. F A B U L O U S
You can feel Steve's pride in his work, and his love of San people's art, when he is showing you around in his Inkunzi Cave. We found the cave to be an absolutely lovely holiday home; the views on the Berg are amazing, the private rock pool is stunning and everything has been taken care of. We were afraid it might get cold in the "cave" at night, but to the contrary: the whole structure is surprisingly well isolated, and even without using the heater, we were comfortably warm at night. The bathrooms are luxurious in their own way; too bad we could only try out the shower due to lack of time! The rock bath looked quite amazing as well! There is not too much space inside the cave, so I wouldn't recommend it for two couples, but for us it was perfect in size! We had a lovely time and would definitely recommend this accommodation for your next trip to the Drakensberg!…
We didn't even know about this place until a very friendly guy at the Winterton tourist info site told us about it, and were very lucky to book it on short notice since it's normally booked out long in advance. The cave, and other accommodation on the property, are works of art created by the owners, a semi-underground cave-style dwelling filled with African art and decorations, opening up onto a private rock pool with a backing view of the Drakensberg. It's fabulous, we'll definitely come back here again the next time.
Our 5th year at the hut/cave and I will not change my holiday destination to any other in SA. Best hosts ever, best scenery No crime. It's just a little bit of heaven. Missed Muti this year but he will live on in the famous meerkat painting.
We stayed at Diddly Squat for 5 nights which was fantastically unique. Diddly Squat is living art, every day we found something new in the cave. The view of Cathkin Peak (from the comfort of your bed) is spectacular. We spent many an hour in the small rock pool. Steve and Estelle were excellent hosts. This accommodation is for the young at heart and adventurous. We will be back.
One of the best place ever. Amazing view, Lovely charming, warm peaceful... Fully, fully fully equipped. Estelle & Steve thank you so much for all. We really felt home and spent a great time. The place is better than pictures. I can't say more than See you soon. 100000% RECOMMANDED
My boyfriend and I stayed in Diddly Squat for two nights and we really loved it. The whole concept was neat, Steve is a very accomplished and talented artist, and both Steve and Estelle were very welcoming and helpful. The space is all in one room, so you either have to really love the person you're with, or be willing to spend some time outside if they are doing their bathroom business. The location was very close to both the Drakensburg Boys Choir and Monks Cowl, so we were able to see the choir when we first arrived, and then spend all day hiking the next day. They tell me there was a wonderful view of the mountains, but they spent most the time shrouded in clouds. Still a great place, and I would go back in an instant.
