Imagine sitting back on the verandah while you share your garden with zebra, impala and the occasional giraffe before taking a dip in your own private pool. Sun facing fantastic elevated views across the gorgeous 'Valley of a Thousand Hills'. Superb value when considering security, location, wildlife, views, space and a truly African experience living under a thatch roof.
Curved walls give a cosy uniquely African feeling to this magnificent home. At over 400m2 and open-plan with private bedrooms, there is plenty of space for everyone to relax.
Our home is in a very safe Estate with 24hr security. We have well maintained Mountain Bike and Walking routes in the Estate which are a wonderful way to experience nature. Bothas hill (5 min) and Hillcrest (12 min) have many curios, shops and restaurants. There is a lot to explore for shoppers and gourmets alike. Guided game drives (into the game park by 4x4), Zulu dancing, crocodile park, snake park and curios are all available next door at Phezulu Safari Park. They hold talks and courses from time to time on wildlife in our area, feel free to contact them and get involved in what they are hosting. We are midway on the Comrades Marathon route and we are well positioned for lots of other sporting events including:- rugby, football, cricket, cycling, sani-to-sea, iDube race track and the Dusi Canoe Marathon. Only 6 minutes drive to Kearsney College, making us an ideal stop-over for sports events. This property is superb as a base to explore the greater Durban and Pietermaritzburg area as well as the Midlands and Drakensburg. We are roughly halfway between Durban and Pietermaritzburg. We are the ideal base point before heading out to visit the battlefields of KZN. The beach in Durban is a little over 30 minutes drive. King Shaka International Airport is less than an hours drive. Tala Game Reserve is 30 minutes away. The Midlands Meander is a fantastic day out with lots to see, do, buy and eat.
  • Hi, We had the most pleasant stay at this property. The view was absolutely amazing, it is worth the travelling from Durban. The pics don't do the place nearly enough justice. We will definitely recommend this property to our friends and family for future stays. Thank you again. Kind regards, Dani

    A lovely 1 bedroom cottage with a beautiful, landscaped garden. We also have a sofa bed in the lounge area, if needed. 20 minutes away from Durban Beach.
    We like to think our home and garden is a tropical wonder. A little piece of heaven on earth. We have the most beautiful bird life ranging from Loeries to listening to the cry of Fish Eagles in the valley. We also have our own troop of monkeys.
    Our neighborhood is a family orientated and a popular cycling path. It is safe a secure with neighborhood watch and street cameras for extra peace of mind. We are extremely privileged to be one of the few areas in Durban Metro where you are likely to see and hear the beautiful Narina Trogons (bright red breasted bird), the majestic Crowned Eagles and cute, bright eyed Bush Babies.
  • This is my second stay at Paperbark! It was just as great the second time as the first. My only regret is that I am always busy catching up with friends to actually enjoy the serene atmosphere of Tarryn and Art’s place. One nice feature is the beautiful landscape, and can’t forget the water pressure in the shower.

  • Lynne gave us a wonderful warm welcome and we knew our stay was going to be great! Her flatlet upstairs was perfect for us, a couple with a toddler, for 6 nights while we caught up with friends in Kloof. Lynne checked in with us regularly to make sure we were ok. Lovely spacious bedrooms with plenty of storage and large comfy beds. Spotlessly clean with a generous deck area overlooking her beautiful pool and garden. Our toddler loved exploring Lynne’s garden as well as the nearby Makaranga Lodge gardens which Lynne recommended to us and is well worth the visit!

    Annie2019-12-18T00:00:00Z

    We love this space so are naturally biased 🌸However, read what the guests have to say in their rave reviews. This is a truly unique experience. Sleep in a pimped caravan with a clear and elevated roof to watch the night sky. Set in beautiful yellowwood trees with your own private bush lapa. A deck extends into and around the trees. A beautiful place. A beautiful experience. A place to rest and restore. We care about the details and offering you a beautiful space to just breathe.
    We offer tag on services: * Travelling therapist offering Aromatherapy. * Pre-order a stunning private dinner from our resident chefs. * Local markets & the village of Hillcrest nearby. * Tourist attractions if you have the energy to leave your hammock. * Durban's beaches are a 25 minute drive. * We can arrange airport transfers. The gym is nearby and not on the premises.
    The Shongweni Saturday morning market is divine. Tourist attractions nearby if you feel so inclined. The Kloof gorge offers beautiful walking trails. Giba gorge - the same, as well as stunning mountain bike trails. The Hillcrest village offers a host of stunning restaurants. The Durban beaches are about 20 minutes drive away or, head up the North coast with a picnic for the day. Having said all that - once you arrive, you may never want to drag yourself up and off the daybed suspended in the beautiful Yellowwoods 🌸
  • Had the most amazing time! Such a cool place, great to sit back and relax. Lynn and Tana were so friendly and helpful with tips of nearby places to go. Highly recommend for a fun weekend away.

    Roger2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Lynn, for making our too short stay a most pleasant and memorable one! From the moment we arrived, your warm welcome made us feel like we were visiting a long lost friend! Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of your home with us, along with the very interesting stories and insight of how it all came about. We were blown away by the clever use of space, the well-thought through ideas, that you didn't skimp on anything - some really luxurious delights, from essential oils to bath sheets and lotions, assorted teas and coffees... The caravan is beautifullll!!! The deck and kitchen / lounge is amazing, with every convenience - who would expect an espresso machine (among other things), and also some very quirky touches, when glamping! Despite the open space, everything was super clean! The peace and tranquility, the greenery, the wooded area, mist enveloping us as night falls, it's so romantic and soul-soothing (understatement)...Whoever is reading this and considering visiting Masinga, do not even think twice! Just do it!! You have to experience this for yourself. No short review is going to do justice!!! We love it :-) :-) Hats off to Lynn & Tana.

The beautiful views, and vintage living areas exceeded our expectations and the great touches such as the working arcade games, breakfast in the fridge, hammocks, wood for the fire and more really added to a relaxing stay. The bnb was private and quiet and we would recommend it for any person or couple wishing to have a relaxing stay.

My room was beautifully decorated, super comfortable and spotlessly clean. My bed was so comfortable that I overslept on both mornings.

All in all one of the nicest places I have seen and I will definitely be staying here often.
