The Master Suite consists of a large bedroom with a king size bed, en-suite bathroom with shower, bath and double vanity unit and sliding mirrored wardrobes.

The lower level consists of 3 exquisitely furnished en-suite bedrooms (1 king-size, 1 queen & 1 double). All three have been furnished in a contemporary style using complementary earth-tones, soft cream and white. Padded suede headboards, suede curtains, stainless steel and chrome finishes add to the modern look and style of the house. Two of the downstairs bedrooms have televisions and DVD / CD players. All of the televisions in the house are linked to the PVR dual view decoder in the upstairs lounge.

All the bedrooms have luxurious bathrooms with superb quality Italian tiles and contemporary chrome and glass showers, basins and fittings. Bed linen and bath towels are all of a superior quality and bathrobes and hairdryers are provided.


Large sliding doors open from the lounge and dining room onto a 90m² tiled deck which is perfect for entertaining. The views are the finest in Plett.

At one end of the deck there is a covered area with a 12-seater wooden patio table ideal for al fresco eating and at the other end are two 6-seater suites with reclinable chairs.

A Weber braai with rotisserie and a Cadac skottel braai with gas bottles are provided.

French doors in two of the bedrooms and the dining room open onto a huge 200m² wooden deck with a sparkling swimming pool. Pool loungers and a 6-seater patio suite with a large umbrella allow guests to enjoy the sun until the final rays slip over the horizon.

The enormous 80m2 lounge and dining area is beautifully furnished in a contemporary style with dark wood furniture, cream leather sofas, Italian travertine and glass tables and display units. The lounge features a 50" plasma TV, DSTV PVR satellite decoder, DVD and CD players, and iPOD docking station. A BOSE surround sound system feeds sound to ceiling mounted speakers in the kitchen and both areas of the upstairs deck. Dimmable downlights throughout the upper level and deck add to the overall ambience of the house.

A twelve-seater dining table in the bay window provides a spectacular night view over the houses that surround the lagoon in the oldest part of Plett, as well as the far off lights from houses built on the banks and surrounding hills of the Bitou and Keurbooms rivers.


The main kitchen has everything necessary for the serious cook. It boasts state of the art appliances, including a Bosch electric oven and 4 plate ceramic hob, Panasonic microwave convection oven, Kenwood Chef, Breville grill, cappuccino/espresso machine, deep-fat fryer and electric wok.

Table and servingware is all pristine white and there are plenty of glasses for everyday and crystal for special occasions. A water purifier provides water for drinking and cooking and also feeds the ice-maker and cold water dispenser in the double-door fridge/freezer. A washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher are in the scullery area, and additional fridges and freezers are in the garage, which can be accessed through the kitchen.
