“a bird’s-eye view of the peaceful surroundings”
Double Room with a Balcony View
This room is named after the Bateleur, a medium-sized eagle native to Africa and small parts of Arabia. Just like the eagle flies high in the sky, soaring above the countryside, this second-story room gives you a bird’s-eye view of the peaceful surroundings. The atmosphere, like the bateleur, is generally silent, calm and quiet. The Bateleur can produce a variety of barks and screams. However, you will find that you forget the barks and screams of daily life.
With a lock-up safe and a lockup garage, you can spend all your time relaxing and enjoying the comfort of your home away from home. The lush leather look mimics the brown feathers on the bateleur’s back. With wooden furnishings, including a writing desk, you can complete that last chapter of your book. You can finalise that report or journal your way into your stay.
“feel right at home”
Double Room with a Veranda
Named after the Janfrederik bird, who makes his home in places other than his natural habitat, like city suburbs or farm woodlots. This might not be your natural habitat, but you will feel right at home. A room where you’ll unwind in shades of orange, brown and olive green, with luxurious leather accents.
The Janfrederik forages on ground level. You too can enjoy a warm cuppa from your private veranda in this ground level room. Sip your warm liquid overlooking the beautifully kept garden, and behind it the tranquil waters of the dam.
Like every room in the guesthouse, you can enjoy free wifi for the duration of your stay. And a cleverly hidden writing desk makes it easy to finish your work. So you can relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
You may be on the outskirts of Carolina, but here you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away from life’s noise.
“a home comfortable to live in”
Family Room with a Veranda
Bask in the yellow and green colours of the Jangroentjie room, named and designed after this glossy sunbird. Like emeralds feathered in flame, this bird hovers over the flowers of garden and bush. Your room located just above the garden, gives you the perfect view of the flowers and plants, beautifully kept here.
Although the Jangroentjie enjoys spiders and insects, its preference, by far, is nectar. Keep your own nectar cool and refreshing with your in-room fridge. Or enjoy a warm cuppa from your coffee/tea making facility, while you savor the view of the dam.
Perfect for a family of sunbirds, this room sleeps three with a double bed and a single bed. You can also chirp and sing together in the full living room. Lock up your valuables in your room safe, and keep your car protected in the lockup, undercover parking.
Whether it’s just you, or a family stayover, this room has everything that makes a home comfortable to live in.
“waking up to the golden rays of the morning sun”
Family Room with a Balcony View
Experience the enchantment of waking up to the golden rays of the morning sun in the Loerie room.
Situated on the second story, this room features a cosy double bed and an additional single bed for your convenience. Named after the beautiful Burchell’s Coucal, also known as Vleiloerie in Afrikaans, this room offers a tranquil retreat where you can bask in nature’s embrace.
Immerse yourself in the warm and inviting ambience, and let the Loerie room become your sanctuary amidst the beauty of the dreamy garden and peaceful dam.
“fit for royalty”
Double Room with a Sleeper Couch
The Mahem could be considered a royal bird, because of its crown of stiff golden feathers. Likewise, this room oozes royalty in the form of luxury.
Decorated in the silvery greys of the Mahem bird, with touches of red and yellowy gold, it is the perfect place to put up your feet and forget about your worries. Located on the ground floor, you have an idyllic view of the dam from your private veranda.
Did you know that Mahem’s are omnivores? Don’t worry, we won’t feed you plants, seeds, frogs and insects. Instead, you can enjoy a hearty Mpumalanga breakfast, made fresh in the Waterfront Guesthouse kitchen.
You can sleep in the luxurious double bed with your loved one for a romantic night in. Or you can bring the whole family and pop out the sleeper couch to sleep two more. Your royal highness, welcome to your abode.
“a union of peace and comfort”
Double Room with a Veranda
Troupant translates to “wedding band”. This bird got its name due to the use of its feathers in the wedding dresses of the Voortrekkers. In Afrikaans there is a saying of “pushing two beds together”, signifying two people getting married and “joining their beds”. You will see that in action with the 2 single beds in this room, pushed together. It is decorated in the pinks and blues of the Troupant bird.
The Troupant is, for the most part, absent from treeless places. But there are plenty of trees around and in view of your room, not only calming your senses, but providing you with much needed oxygen! The Troupant is extremely aggressive in the defence of its nest, taking on raptors and other birds. You have no need to be so aggressive, because with a lockup safe to protect your valuables, and lockup, undercover parking, we have gone the extra mile to keep you safe. Rarely seen outside protected areas, the Troupant is commonly sighted among roads and paths, an ideal borderline habitat to search for prey.
Luckily you don’t have to go anywhere in search for food.
We serve a hearty Mpumalanga breakfast in the dining room, where a huge window offers a lovely vantage point of the dam and the garden.
In this room, you will experience the perfect union between peace and comfort.
