Situated about 8km from Wilderness village along the Garden Route, this secluded and private chalet lies nestled in and surrounded by forest. Enjoy the peace and serenity of this unique setting while staying close to the sea, beaches and restaurants.

The space
Forest Chalet consists of two bedrooms (sleeps five). The main bedroom has a king-size bed plus a single bed. The other bedroom has two single beds.

The kitchen is well equipped for self-catering, with gas stove and oven, fridge and freezer.

The bathroom which has an outside entrance but is part of the chalet, has a shower, bath, basin, toilet and a clothes washer.

All rooms open onto a spacious covered patio with lovely views. In addition there is a braai (barbecue) area with braai equipment (wood supplied).

The chalet is 15 minutes from Wilderness village with its numerous restaurants (some highly rated), variety of shops, liquor store, petrol station, bicycle and scooter hire, pharmacy and Friday night market with live music.

It is also 20 minutes from the Wilderness beaches and lagoons. The village is located between two picturesque rivers, one of which flows into a beautiful vlei (lake) with associated wetlands. These environments are wonderful for birding. Canoes can be hired to explore these waterways.

Other activities offered in Wilderness and surrounds include paragliding (tandem gliding available), abseiling, surfing, horse riding, mountain biking, water-skiing, sailing, fishing and quad biking.

Numerous nature reserves with a network of hiking trails lie within easy reach of the chalet.

Guest access
You come and go as you like. The chalet is completely private and is booked as a unit.

Other things to note
The road into the valley is steep and the last 400 m of entrance road to the cottage is fairly rough but can be negotiated with a normal vehicle, driven slowly without a problem.

The bathroom has a separate outside entrance, but is connected to the chalet.

Mobile reception at the cottage is limited but there are areas nearby where the reception is better.

There is no internet connection at the chalet. Free WiFi is available at a number of restaurants in Wilderness village. In case of need we have WiFi facilities at our house.

I love travelling and meeting people from other countries. My wife and I used to host volunteers from all over the world - I really enjoyed that and found it immensely satisfying. My top travel destinations? Turkey, Croatia and Finland. I enjoy good, interesting food and these three countries were the best in that area.
