Ever wanted to sleep in a cave? Here's your chance! The Rock House is an ancient stone age shelter and ceremonial site that dates back 25,000 years. Formed from a giant granite boulder and blended with contemporary architecture, the space is dramatic, unusual, and deeply peaceful. It's also secluded, fully furnished, and cozy with an equipped kitchen, 8-person dining area, spacious lounge with TV, and 2 bedrooms. Spectacular view of Pine Valley from the doorstep.

The space
Situated on a one-of-a-kind property, the Rock House is the perfect peaceful getaway in scenic Pine Valley, Mbabane. Just steps from the Mbuluzi River, waterfall, and accessible hiking area, but enclosed and private. Ample parking. The house has everything a business traveler or vacationer could need - 2 bedrooms (each with a double bed), open-plan lounge and dining area, and kitchen with fridge, double-burner 5-burner range/oven, all crockery, electric kettle, toaster, and cooking equipment. Heating unit and fans provided. Wireless internet included. Housekeeping included and laundry available on request. Note that while all are welcome, this property is not recommended for children under 5 or anyone with mobility challenges due to its cave-like nature (uneven surfaces, stairs, and low-hanging rock formations).
