The Bolt Hole – Quaint And Quirky

Situated in a shady garden, The Bolt Hole sleeps four in two large double rooms. There is a spacious open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. The ensemble is completed with an outside entertainment area and small splash pool.

Living Quarters
The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area opens onto a sunny veranda in the front, and a secluded garden to the side. Cushioned window seats and sofas face the large wood-burning Morso fireplace, making a relaxed living area.

The kitchen is fully-equipped with a SMEG fridge, gas hob and oven, dishwasher, and everything you need to prepare your favourite culinary delights.

The large, pool-side dining area under a canopy of mature vines is perfect for long, lazy alfresco meals. Wood and charcoal are supplied for the built in barbeque, or, as they say in South Africa,  ‘braai’. Lounger chairs and a shady umbrella provide a relaxing spot for reading a book or falling asleep.

The main bedroom suite is located on a mezzanine level, in the bamboo clad eaves of the house. This super-spacious open-plan room is fitted with a king-sized bed, plenty of cupboard space, a claw-foot bath and vanity, and skylights for letting in lots of natural light.

(Please note that the toilet for the main bedroom is located downstairs)

The second bedroom is found on the ground floor, with double doors opening out onto a private garden. With a queen-sized bed, and an en suite safari-style shower and vanity, this cosy room is separated from the living area by a writing nook with a desk and cushioned window seat.
