Protea is a private cottage, centrally situated in a quiet, tree-lined suburb of George in the beautiful Garden Route. The cottage consists of an en suite bedroom and a well-equipped kitchenette. This leads to a private under cover stoep area, next to the pool – perfect for lounging around with a fire and a glass of wine! (The pool is not enclosed – please ensure your water safety!) This cottage has recently been renovated to suit the style and demands of the modern self-caterer.
