Perfect romantic couple’s or small family retreat. This beautiful off grid, luxury cabin has stunning 360 nature and mountain views. It sleeps 4 people (2 adults, 2 kids). 1 Bedroom, and one Pull-out couch. Open space living area and kitchen with luxurious amenities and design. 1 Bathroom with shower + outside shower. Solar Power and Hot Water Gas Geyser. Wooden deck and lounge chairs outside, with Weber Braai and fire pit to enjoy starlit nights. Wood Fired Hot Tub on deck for total relaxation.

The space
The Whitehouse is a unique luxury eco-cabin at Montevue Nature Farm in the Karoo, that will immediately steal your heart. Located out of sight and sound of any other houses or roads, it feels totally secluded in unspoiled nature, but it's located only 12 minutes from the historic Montagu town and the famous Route 62. (The farm is less than 2.5hrs from Cape Town)

The Whitehouse is a very special, beautifully decorated and well designed house, that feels much bigger than it is, offering all the luxury and amenities you need to still have a sense of luxury while being alone in the mountains.

Here you can feel totally at peace, surrounded by nature, 360 views and only the sounds of the birds and the breeze, while relaxing in the hot tub gazing at the stars at night. This truly is what dreams are made of.

If you want to take a break from relaxing at the house with its fire pit, hot tub and deck with 360 views - there are lots more to see and do at Montevue. You have full access to the entire 1050 ha of unspoiled mountain paradise. The hills, valleys and "kloof" beg you to explore them and discover the illusive game that roam these hills, the beautiful look out points and scarce Karoo flora.

A normal car is fine for accessing the farm and the accommodation, but if you have a 4x4, you can explore the 15 kms of 4x4 jeep track that wind through the farm . Take on "Dead man's pass" for the most beautiful views and drive through Kudu's Kloof searching for game. Don't have a 4x4? These roads are also perfect for hiking at your own pace, or take them on with your Mountain bike. Go picnic in the veld and explore!

Montevue is perfect for hiking (follow the roads, or explore your own trails), MTB, bird watching, meditating, game viewing (naturally occurring game like Kudu, Mountain Reedbuck, Duikers, Steenbok etc.), mountain climbing, swimming in the dam and star gazing.

Note that at Montevue we want to take you away from the hustle and bustle of city life, and all its stress, which includes technology. Therefor, we have no phone signal near The Whitehouse. We hope that you can take a break from phones and internet to really appreciate nature as it was supposed to be. (Need to urgently call someone, or upload your instagram pics? You can find signal just 5 mins from the farm on the way to Montagu, or drive (or hike) up to top of our Mountain, "Signal Hill", behind the Wood Cabin, if you have a 4x4. There is good signal there.)

Its an off-grid house, that works with Solar power and gas. The solar power is strong enough to keep the fridge and lights running all day, short microwave sessions and also to charge phones or cameras. Unfortunately no heated elements such as straighteners or hairdryers. Its a bad hair don't care kinda place :)

Guest access
You have the entire Whitehouse accommodation unit for yourself. You also have full access to the entire 1050 ha of the Montevue Nature Farm property to explore at your leisure.

The Farm is less than 12 minutes away from town. Montagu is a small historic town and a big tourist attraction. Here you will find the most beautiful buildings and restaurants. Close enough to drive through every day for a nice lunch and a WIFI fix.
