Lonely Planet review
Behind their whitewashed facades and green shutters, these eight mid-19th-century cottages mix colonial furniture and modern amenities. Yellow-wood floors and beams, insulating reed-and-clay roofs, claw-footed baths and vintage cake tins on the dresser meet electric blankets, radiators and DSTV.
The one- to three-bedroom cottages have kitchens. There's also a restaurant and poolside braai area, where owner Buks leads stargazing sessions.
