Do you want to spoil yourself and your partner, if so look no further. At last, a guest house with a difference.

On arrival a welcoming sherry and a huge log fire in the lounge. Each bedroom has its own romantic four-poster king-size bed draped with a silk mosquito net and of course, a log fireplace. Each also has its own bathroom with an old-fashioned ball and claw bath and lots of candles. After settling in, why not drop down onto one of the many overstuffed couches in front of the fire for liqueurs and a good book.

We are on a lovely protected cove on the south western shore of St Helena Bay; one of the only three natural bays on the mainland coastlines of the world, where one can see both sunset and sunrise over the sea with wonderful views of the Piketberg mountains which is often snow covered in winter. Though only 150 km from the Cape Peninsula, St Helena Bay has a milder and warmer climate providing ideal conditions for your stay.

Even Vasco dea Gama, the Portuguese explore/sailor who visited these fair shores in 1497, realized the peace of this quiet haven; as do calving whales who come from August to years end. Also spot large schools of dolphins often seen leaping and chasing close by.

Well situated for day visits to the West Coast National Park, Cape Columbine Nature Reserve and the quaint fishing village of Paternoster or join a tour of the internationally renowned Pala ontological diggings at the nearby Fossil Park. A birdwatcher's paradise with more than 200 species, visit the hides at Rocher Pan, the Berg River Estuary and Saltpans of Velddrif, as well as the golf club in Vredenberg.

A botanist's dream with spring flower veld displays every year or visit the annual Darling and Hopefield flower shows.

Stroll the white sands and cool off in the safe waters of the bay, the ideal place for water sports. Explore the seafood route or dive to the many wrecks and at the end of a perfect day, raise your glass to a spectacular sunset and the promise of yet another breathtaking day. An ideal rest stop for weary travellers during the week.

The Wesley is an upmarket guest house that caters for the more discerning guest. As one of the oldest farm houses in Bryanston, the property is situated on the highest point in the area and has been occupied by multinational CEOs and Heads of States.

Set in idyllic surroundings, there are few experiences that can rival sipping sundowners on the deck, listening to the gurgling of the waterfalls, basking amongst the unique bird life, and watching the setting of the magnificent South African sun. Exclusivity and privacy are key, and each room is designed with this in mind. The entire area is covered by cameras, electric fencing, electric beams, and 24-hour guards for peace of mind. A backup generator is also available should there be a power failure.

The rooms vary in size, boasting antiques dating between 100 and 250 years old. The focus and design is a fusion between French Provencal, with touches of ancient Colonial Asia. Each of the 11 rooms has a sense of conformity with the detail presenting total individualism, and the majority of the décor has been specifically imported. Features include the Cigar Bar and African Bar, as well as a beautiful swimming pool with waterfalls and palm trees.

The guest house is situated in the heart of Bryanston and Sandton, surrounded by beautiful gardens and a natural bird haven which has been cultivated over decades opposite the Bryanston Golf Course. The Wesley is conveniently located near many popular venues such as Fourways, Cresta, Rosebank, MonteCasino, the highway, and the Gautrain.

Forest Creek nestles within a gorge of the Steinkampburg Mountains. It is only when one gets to the gate of Forest Creek Lodge that the rock-strewn grassland is left behind, one climbs up, and up, and enter this little enchanted world. The mystique of the place is tangible. A strong feeling of peace will overwhelm you. A question often asked is where are you. Our reply is if one were in Dullstroom and jumped off the mountain, you would land in our gorge.

This cosy, rustic wooden cottage is situated 0.5 km away from the main lodge area next to the indigenous forest and is totally private, within earshot of the stream, and with stunning views of the mountains. The cottage features a fireplace in the lounge and is fully equipped for self-catering.

The cottage comprises one queen-size bedroom with an en-suite bath and toilet, a second smaller bedroom with a single bed, and a double sleeper couch in the lounge. The unit is suitable for couples with small children, or a romantic hideaway, as the bathroom is open-plan, with candles and bubbles. There is also a large outside braai area with a table for a lazy breakfast, lunch or supper.

Bird-watching is amazing and there are many rare species here. We have built a tree house in the ravine forest for bird-watching and picnics, set high up in the canopy of the large trees and offering superb views of the forest canopy and gorge. Some of the more exotic species of interest to birdwatchers include the Knysna loerie, Cinnamon dove, Grey cuckoo shrike, Blue mantled flycatcher, Black eagle and the ultimate tick, the Narina trogon. This inter-zonal malaria-free habitat also allows tree enthusiasts the opportunity of identifying many uncommon species of trees, shrubs, orchids and ferns.

For the international traveller Forest Creek Lodge is an ideal place to relax and unwind after a long flight, a mere 130 km from the Kruger National Park. Enjoy treatments in the private Forest Spa, or simply enjoy the tranquility of the bush. Please note that the last 4 km of dirt road require a high clearance vehicle, however we can collect you at the bottom of the hill and leave your vehicle in a safe place.

If you take the self-catering option you are welcome to book meals and activities at the lodge, we supply firewood.
Dinner is a 4 course meal R250.00 and breakfast is R120.00 per person.

Activities include; Bush bath - set in a secluded spot, enjoy a 'bath' in the bush, with lots of bubbles.
Forest spa - indulge yourself in our private spa overlooking the gorge, go home feeling relaxed and stress free.

Gazebo romantic private dinner - spoil your loved one for a totally private candle lit dinner under the gazebo. Many a proposal of marriage has been accepted in this lovely setting!

Hiker’s picnic; a picnic packed in a rucksack, get ready to hike to the waterfall!

Lazy picnic; a picnic set out for you in a private spot, with champagne, a good one for the romantic at heart.
Hiking; marked trails through the forest, along the stream on the way to the waterfall.

Bird watching; we have a prolific variety of uncommon species of birds that can be seen, including a resident pair of black eagles.
Horse riding; 4 km down the hill, book a ride in our scenic valley.

Trout fishing; good clear water with rainbow trout.
Clay pigeon shooting; an interesting and testing range for the novice and experienced shooters.
