Getaway (South Africa) - - Check In -

Views are largely a given in a vil­lage built on a moun­tain slope, but this apart­ment is one awe­some eyrie. It’s a stiff walk to get to your front door but well worth the ef­fort when you step into an enor­mous hori­zon framed by vir­tu­ally floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows. The main bed­room is sit­u­ated right be­hind the lounge, and slid­ing doors mean you can en­joy the view while ly­ing in bed. Decor-wise it’s a bit ‘stage set’, with quirky an­tiques that are more about mak­ing a state­ment than com­fort, but it’s char­ac­ter­ful and fun, with some great de­tails (loved the ‘hon­esty wine rack’ – a great se­lec­tion of wines, clearly la­belled by va­ri­etal and well priced). There are two bed­rooms shar­ing one fab­u­lous open-plan shower room, but the liv­ing space is fairly in­ti­mate and feels more suit­able for a cou­ple or young fam­ily. It’s man­aged by Chartfield House, so you have the backup of the guest house. ROOM TIP If this doesn’t suit you or isn’t avail­able, take a look at the other self-cater­ing op­tions man­aged by Chartfield House. COST From R1 200 (sleeps four). CON­TACT kalk­baya­part­
