Located in a green pocket, at the foot off the Langberg mountain. This off-grid retreat offers beautiful lush, flora, loads of fauna, waterfalls, rivers and pools right on your doorstep, in comfort and style.

Offering the best of both worlds the area is great for hikes, mountain biking, bird watching, swims or simply chilling. With Swellendam, Barrydale and Heidelberg being only 20 min drive away, shopping and wining and dining is on the menu too.

The space
The house is powered by the latest technology 2 kw solar system and the plumbing consist of a greywater system and septic tank for the loo.

The living swimming pool is an absolute win for warm days and the Mexican volcanic fire place will warm you up for those chilly days and evenings. With an open-feel living area connecting you to the natural surrounds and then of course, there is the hot tub on the deck over looking the mountain... magic!

The whole "Over-The-River" area has become a developed, off-the-grid community over the years and live in harmony with local Suurbraak village (Homeland of the Khoi people) whom still practice small farming as most of the" off-the-gridders" do as well.

There is also a lovely Café in the main road, Paradise Organic, open for breakfast and lunch from Tue-Sun.

Where you’ll be

Suurbraak, Western Cape, South Africa

There is a lovely Café in the main road of the village, called Paradise Organic.

We love swimming in the Tradouw pass, just 15 min away. Not only are there multiple pools to swim in but several caves to explore along the pass for those looking for a bit of adventure.

Barrydale, just after Tradouw pass offers two amazing dining options Mez Karroo Kitchen, a boutique style restaurant and the famous Diesel and Crème, serving the best "old school" dinner burgers!

In the opposite direction we have Swellendam, a small but beautiful town with quaint little coffee shops and restaurant's with plenty of shops to explore.

The hikes I the area are endless, including the magical Grootvadersbosch, about 20 min drive away.

We do also have a few Yoga instructors and a local Reiki and Thai massage therapist just down the road if you are interested in a different sort of relaxation! Please pop us a message for contact details if you would like more information on this.
