Even though we have travelled the Garden Route often, nothing prepared us for just how beautiful, tranquil and transporting the forested valley and adjacent hillsides of Ballots Bay were.... And Jane's house, in its gorgeous setting overlooking the surrounding hills - and teeming with relentless birdlife, was the perfect place to be based. The house itself is immaculate and elegantly-equipped, and living in it, with its bright thoroughfares of airiness and light, leading out onto the stupendous deck, is like being immersed right in the fragrant and chattering indigenous forest and fynbos of the surrounds. We cannot recommend her spot highly enough!
Loved the position - as if this gorgeous timber house had been dropped into the forest at the edge of the cliff. Beautifully decorated, quirky and very comfortable. Kitchen is a marvel and a red fridge holds pride of place. The deck with its hammock commands an incredible view and the birds visit the birdbath regularly, including the beautiful Knysna Loerie.
Sitting on the deck interacting with the many birds that love this home is the picture of peace and tranquility. The house is furnished beautifully and very personally, with endless spots to settle into and call your own. Ballots Bay is my idea of paradise - I've yet to find a better place in the world. And Jane's house is the perfect home to experience it from. It truly is the place to go to restore ones soul!
