I have stayed over several times now, but am always in awe of the peace, tranquillity and nature that surrounds Equleni farm. It is difficult to leave this haven of peace by the water, but once you do, one’s body and soul is replenished and fulfilled. Not only is the location and nature of the farm outstanding, but the cottages are out of this world. They are spacious, luxurious and well maintained and have all the creature comforts that are unexpected. This includes a braai on the huge elevated deck, which offers an amazing view over Rondevlei and even more astounding sunsets. A pit fire next to the cottage is also present, from which sundowners and a braai can be enjoyed. Once the braai is over, marshmallows are provided to roast over the fire. The walk-in shower is perfect, with a view out over the lake. The double bed is huge and comfortable. The cottage is decorated and furnished with one-of-a-kind things and further provides a free spirited atmosphere.
The early morning walks around the farm through the fynbos is just the best start of the day and sets the mark for the rest of the day, with a stroll down to the Rondevlei Parks Board bird hide and relaxing at the farm pool located near the cottages. There are many other places of interest to see and visit near the farm, such as a beach walk to Gerrickes point, forest walks in Wilderness and MTB rides.
The owners, Ant and Dianne ensure that all one’s needs are met and that the stay is pleasurable and stress free.
What a place! Will stay over at Equleni Guest Farm time and again!
