Donkerhoek Country Living offers a 12-sleeper, self-catering home in a beautiful bushveld area only 20 minutes from Pretoria. The house has two double bedrooms, one room with 2 bunk beds (i.e. four beds), a sleeper couch and two child beds. With a big barbecue and a lovely deck area, we offer the ideal family weekend getaway. We are proudly fully sustainable with an off-grid solar system and a rainwater harvesting system.

In Room Facilities:

Our house is fully solar powered and features a rainwater harvesting system for water supply that can be supplemented with borehole water. We also sport a fancy composting toilet and make use of grey water for the other toilets. The kitchen has a gas stove/gas oven combination and we do not make use of microwaves due to their high power consumption. Trash is responsibly recycled and our chickens love all scrap food! Come and experience how easy and practical it is to live sustainably. We are happy to answer any questions and give advice on our green systems if you are interested in installing it yourselves.

Guests are advised that the dishwasher, hair dryers (or other high wattage equipment) can only be used during 10 am - 4 pm when the sun is shining. For rainy days when the solar system is not charging we have a back-up generator.
No pets, smoking, parties or events. We do not offer WiFi or a microwave and have no cleaning services.

Area Information:

You will have access to about half the property (12 ha) for hiking, bird-watching, picnics etc. We live with our dogs, horses and bees on the other half and guests are requested to only go there if one of us are with you.

Our dogs, cats, horses and bees also live on the property but will not be in your fenced area. Guests are requested not to enter this area without being escorted by one of the hosts. The house has a camera system which will be off in the immediate vicinity of the house during your visit except for key security points.

In the tranquil environment at Donkerhoek Country Living, one can experience the peace and quiet of nature. A closeness with nature is experienced while listening to the many bird calls early in the morning. Families can get together at the braai area on deck and see the sunset, or at the lovely picnic spot looking over the veld. The house is comfortable and well equipped, truly an enjoyable experience.

Superb. 5 out of 5

We visited Iemke’s place and it felt like home! It is such a lovely farm house and the quiet setting is food for your soul. It is not luxurious but very comfortable and neat. We enjoyed sitting on the stoep for breakfast and braai and to go for a picnic in the bushveld.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5
