About Mountain Haven Guest House

Mountain Haven offers self-catering accommodation in the beautiful town of Kaapsehoop, from which to explore and experience the waterfalls, magnificent views, and wildlife that the area is famous for.Or use as a base ,as we are central to most attractions in Mpumalanga.We are here to attend to your needs,whether it be to light your braai,give you directions to the most interesting places or tell you about the History of this fascinating early Gold Rush Town once known as Duiwels Kantoor(Devil s Office) or maybe you d like to go on the Ghost Tour !

Malaria and Bilharzia Free.Safe to walk,day or night.

There is Horse Riding and exciting 6 km down hill scooter rides close by.Walk 10 minutes and you ll find battery Creek Falls ,30 metres high and a great place to cool off in the heat of the day,sit and meditate while the energy of the water drums onto the rocks and the spray gently caresses you,or stand beneath it and let it massage away the weariness of city life.The Pear Orchard (1 km) ,has braai s and a Dam with beautifully clear water around 2 metres deep, you can see right to the bottom and is a great place to swim,picnic,play family sport or braai under the trees.

Explore galleries of gnarled rocks or caves as you make your way to the edge of the escarpment (20 minutes walk) ,where the earth drops a 1000 metres into the Barberton valley below,on a moonlit night the local pass time,tipple and picnic blanket in hand,is to stroll up to the edge where you can see the lights of Nelspruit and Barberton 30 kms away.Or go up to see the sun rise over the Swazi Mountains.

The village itself has restaurants,bars,antiques and craft shops the Colonial style often interspersed with the quirky and esoteric,as many of the 120 or so locals are artists or crafts people.Watch out for the Wild Horses,they can sometimes give you a fright ,especially if they suddenly come looming out of the mist.No Spar or Petrol Station,the one small tuck shop we do have may have bread,milk or your brand of cigarettes so make sure you are well provisioned when you arrive,although the scenic drive down to Nelspruit is only about 20 minutes with no robots or stop streets till you reach the City and it s convenient shopping Malls (almost on every corner lol)

              Restful accommodation in this magical little town. The unit was neat, clean and equipped with all the essentials one would expect from a self-catering unit. Vincent is a gracious host, giving us info on attractions and things to do in the area. A must see is the stunning waterfalls only a few minutes’ walk away from the guest house. Mountain Haven is highly recommended if you are looking for a no frills, no fuss, relaxation spot away from the bustle of the big city.

              Vince was helpful in giving advice about the sightseeing in the town. Lovely view towards the mountains. Nice to sit in the garden if the weather permits. We were only two people in a two sleeper which sleeps four and the place is really small and compact. Although we knew to bring towels it is a hassle. The sleeper is fitted with enough crockery and cutlery to prepare a meal. No safe parking at the establishment.Establishment Response.Thank you, we appreciate your kind review. Although we have a car park on our property, most guesthouses in Kaapsehoop don't, visitors park in the street...

              "Mountain Haven" is a real gem, for an affordable price. Clean and comfortable with all the basic necessities for a self-catering weekend. Vince, the owner, if asked, will share his knowledge of the rich history and does the Ghost tour, very interesting! If you enjoy nature and the simpler things in life, this is the perfect place to stay.
