About Elfen House
Absolute privacy, luxury and comfort.
The house is tastefully decorated in cool Karoo shades. The reed ceilings provide a touch of the old Karoo, while the modern high windows and glass doors allow light to flood the rooms and air-conditioning maintains a comfortable atmosphere in Summer.
There are two spacious en-suite bedrooms. The main bedroom has a king-sized, extra length bed and a full bathroom. The second offers twin beds and a shower. Both open onto a covered veranda which welcomes the morning sun. You will find feather duvets, electric blankets, white percale linen and luxurious towels. There is an additional guest toilet. The lounge is a haven of comfort with a wood-burning combustion stove, a flat screen TV with selected DStv channels and a study alcove offering WiFi. The book collection is fluid - a “take one, leave one” library.
Cooking and dining are well catered for: the kitchen has a gas hob and oven, a microwave oven, a full fridge/freezer and a view of the hills and Karoo sky to make cooking a delight - and there’s a dishwasher too! A selection of coffees, tea and homemade rusks are provided.
Glass doors open into the enclosed courtyard with its daybed and loungers, a splash pool surrounded by wooden decking, and an outdoor shower. With its view towards the foothills of the Swartberg, this is an ideal place to while away the lazy Karoo days and enjoy a braai. The night skies are spectacular.
An additional 2 persons can sleep in the secluded Elfen cottage, also on the premises.
