About Karoo Cottage
Karoo Cottage is a delightful air-conditioned little cottage situated under a giant pine tree in the heart of the village of Loxton. It is fully-equipped for self-catering. The cottage comprises one large living-cum-bedroom with one double bed and one single bed, fitted with good quality linen and bedding.
The main room is wall to wall carpeted and includes a small dining table and chairs, comfy armchairs, and other furnishings. Television is provided, with standard SABC channels. The en-suite bathroom has a shower, basin and toilet. The adjoining kitchen has a full size fridge/freezer, a small microwave oven, and a two-plate gas cooker, no oven, plus a range of cutlery, crockery, and cooking utensils. The air-conditioner unit serves to both cool and heat the cottage, and in winter electric blankets are fitted. Small pets are allowed with prior arrangement.
Karoo Cottage has its own access and is totally private. The lockable car gate leads into a shade net-covered carport and there's a private braai area behind the cottage also ideal for stargazing. Wood and braai packs are available by prior arrangement.
Breakfast is an optional extra - we can put ingredients into the cottage for you either for a light breakfast or self-cook - by prior arrangement. The pretty village of Loxton is small and has few facilities so the owners request that you arrange meals in advance. If you'll be self-catering, it's advisable to bring all your supplies with you from a larger centre.
Loxton is a delightful hamlet situated beneath a canopy of trees in the heart of the Karoo. This is not a destination that speaks of bright lights, but rather of bright stars. Thanks to no light or air pollution, we have awesome night skies and have seen see up to twenty satellites within two hours of star gazing.
There are also lovely walks around the tiny, pretty village with its old vernacular architecture, you can climb our koppies, for never-ending views across the plains, and in spring our streets are a fairytale picture of white pear blossoms.
Regrettably, no children under 12 are accepted.
Small pets are allowed with prior arrangement.
