About the Property

4 bedrooms, 4 ensuite bathrooms, 1 study/bedroom + bathroom

The Garden Route is a piece of paradise running parallel to the Indian ocean coastline. This magnificent route features lakes, mountains, tall indigenous forests, amber-coloured rivers and unspoilt golden beaches. The richly forested areas offer leafy meandering trails celebrated by hikers and walkers, whilst quaint grassy lanes invite long, leisurely drives, and the lakes and rivers lend themselves to swimming boating and fishing.

Situated on the picturesque Garden Route in South Africa, this Italian villa style guesthouse perches on the banks of Sedgefield’s tranquil lagoon and is positioned 7 minutes walk from the sea. It is ideally located in the heart of the garden route, almost midway between George and Knysna. The George airport accesses the area, and is roughly 40 minutes by car to the guesthouse.

The area offers ample opportunity for all sorts of watersports, hiking, fishing, as well as extreme sports such as paragliding and mountain biking.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband and I bought this wonderful house in 2010 whilst we were living as expats in Moscow, and run it as a guesthouse which we are very proud of! It is a lovely peaceful yet grand and awe-inspiring place. We love sitting on the wide veranda taking in the open spaces, lagoon, sea and mountain views. Or leisurely watching the interesting birdlife and boating activities on the lagoon whilst sipping on a cocktail at sunset.
