If isolation and a digital detox combined with insane views are what you’re looking for, this is the perfect getaway for you! From the moment you arrive at the most unique entrance you’ll probably ever see and walk down the beautifully handcrafted stairs, you will quickly realise that this space is one of a kind. Carefully crafted with natural elements from the area, the stone, steel and wood blend in with the surroundings, taking nothing away from the magical views that await.


Bedroom:1 | Double Bed

Bedroom: 2 | Bunk Bed (upstairs)


Enjoy the outdoor shower with double shower heads to take in the stars, a wood fired hot tub with a couples recliner attached to lie back and take in the breathtaking views and sunsets. A cozy fireplace for those colder evenings, double bed, kitchenette and well equipped boma for braais or a bonfire. Aardts is one of those very rare finds. An architect’s dream with so much love and thought put into it. Upon leaving you’ll be wishing you could’ve stayed a whole month or even longer.
