Holiday Rental House
This self-standing rustic home has a spacious, open-plan kitchen, dining and living room with fire place, a large, flat-screen TV, DVD player and DSTV. Bring your decoder for extended channel viewing. The kitchen is very well stocked including a water purifier for guest use and the 3 bedrooms sleep six very comfortably. There is an enclosed garden on the south side with a spacious, covered veranda, a pool and basic BBQ facilities. The north facing veranda has magnificent views of our highest peak Blou Punt and provides welcome shade on a summer morning. Views on both sides are spectacular and the wonderful thing is you can be up in the hills in just 10 minutes or less!

The generously proportioned indoor and outdoor spaces allow for peace and quiet or, if you prefer, a wonderful party atmosphere! We only ask that celebrations take the neighbors into consideration and volume is normalized by 10 or 11 pm The master bedroom has bay windows, access to the veranda, a king size bed and an en-suite bathroom. The cozy middle room has two 3/4 size beds and shares a bathroom with a larger room with a king size bed and bay windows. There is ample cupboard space in all rooms. All beds in the house are reported to be extremely comfortable and winter sheets are used when the weather cools down. The kitchen is very generously supplied with most implements you would need. Walking has always been one of my favorite hobbies so most days I take a 50 min amble up the hill and around the closest contour path. There are so many variations to choose from. I'd be happy to have you join me if possible or to point out the various routes. The ECO club puts on some interesting talks and events. Just ask if you're interested. I co-ordinate the Montagu Hacking Club - that's removing invasive alien trees which tend to spread like wild fire, choking the rivers and preventing indigenous growth anywhere nearby. If you'd be interested in trying that out for an hour or two I'd be happy to show you the ropes. Talking of ropes, Montagu is world renowned for its rock climbing sites and we're pretty close to most of them. I tried it as a teenager in Natal but left the efforts to my dad and brothers. I far preferred trekking! I belong to The Inner Wheel, an international charity affiliated to Rotary. We work directly with the local community who need extra support, focusing on young children and the elderly. If you're interested in finding out more or touching base with the program please let me know and I'll arrange something for you. I look forward to meeting you. More
