The space
The cottage was built by one person, by hand, with lots of love over the period of a year. It is built with special attention to detail and has lots of warmth and charm. Being the first building on the property it is situated on the prime stand with panoramic views into the valley, forests and rock cliffs. When the river is running strongly you can hear it from the cottage.

Location

Waterfall, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Waterfall is virtually a suburb of Hillcrest, lying as it does directly north of Kloof and adjacent to Hillcrest and Forest Hill, barely 30 plus kilometres outside of Durban.

This is the main advantage of a stay in Waterfall - that you are on the outskirts of the city. The other rather obvious one is that one inevitably beats the heat of the city. In Waterfall, one is far enough from city life to 'escape' it, whilst remaining close enough to the pulse of all one still needs for convenience. Subsequently, Waterfall functions as a sanctuary without depriving you of creature comforts. Guests have often commented that they cannot believe they are only 35 minutes outside of Durban.

I run The Waterfall Retreat and Environmental Centre in KwaZulu Natal South Africa and am surrounded by indigenous forests, wild cats, bird life, porcupines and bush bucks. One of my favorite things is walking the dogs through the valley and watching them swim at the waterfalls with passion and delight. I love sharing the property with visitors and feel so much joy when I see guests appreciating and benefiting from their time in the Nkutu valley. When looking for places to stay I love bright, clean homes and spaces with a good flow and feeling and preferably surrounded by nature.
