Whilst enjoying my weekend at Grootbos, I was offered a tour of the Villa. The most exclusive of their accommodation. Set apart from Forest and Garden Lodge, the six suite Villa is presented as an exclusive rental with private guide, vehicle, chef and butler for the duration of your stay.
The design is modern with opulent finishes, yet from the luxury rises a sense of style and homely comfort that leaves you knowing barefoot living is welcome here.
Unsurpassed views from the top floor bedrooms and lounge area, as well as the pool and outdoor barbeque. The kitchen is equipped with all you could dream of for cooking, or better still, you can just enjoy the space whilst chatting to the chef as he cooks for you.
Downstairs has a media room with games, additional bedrooms that work well for children and a private garden. A gym too. With outdoor showers, which become an essential part of natural living, throughout. But its the wooden decks with views towards Walker Bay that you want to spend most of your time on.
Pool and Wooden Decking.
Media and Games Room.
A fish sculpture I covet.
The incredible collection of art on the walls is by South African artists the likes of Cecil Skotnes, J.H. Pierneef, Walter Meyer, William Kentridge and Walter Battis.

Note that there’s a September Spring Special well worth considering. Take it from me. You need to get there.
