* The Carraighs:
This lovely two-story cottage has a main bedroom downstairs, with a double bed. The large dining and living area, has DSTV and Wi-Fi. There is a couch/single bed in the lounge for a small child to sleep. Also a camp cot for babies. The upstairs loft, with separate entrance has a double bed and two single beds, as well as a coffee table and couch which can also be converted into a sleeper couch. The loft has a wooden deck with a beautiful view. However, there is no bathroom upstairs so it is necessary that those sleeping upstairs use the bathroom in the downstairs part of the house. (Naturally we never rent them out separately.) There is also a fully equipped and modern kitchen downstairs, a full bathroom, and braai facilities available next to the swimming pool, as well as a Weber if you would prefer to braai at the cottage.
