Our beautiful Protea villa is only 1km away from the Phalaborwa Kruger Gate. The villa is part of an Estate and lies in a lush tropical garden with a pond filled with water lilies, thereupon you have a nice view from the porch.
Protea villa is called after the national South African flower. The house is an accommodation for up to 8 persons and stands on 1000m2 land. It is surrounded by a tropical garden, so that your privacy is guaranteed. The house has a thatched roof and a covered porch. This is our favorite place of the house during daytime with camera and binoculars, and during the evening for a delicious "braai" with a good glass of South African white wine.
The house is furnished in African Style, where we have tried to think about all your needs and wishes.
The interior has a warm cosy atmosphere making you feel comfortable soon.
On the ground floor are two spacious bedrooms, each with two beds with mosquito net, airco and bathroom. Each bathroom has a walk-in rain shower, bathtub, sink and toilet. Both bedrooms also have their own terrace with outside shower.
On the first floor is a loft with 4 beds, also with mosquito net, and airco. There's another bathroom with walk-in rain shower, sink and toilet on the grounfloor for the guests who sleep in the beds from the loft.
The spacious living has an African look and is a comfortable and cosy place for cool evenings. Here is also an airco and a fan if you prefer. Large French Windows give access to the porch. Because of the large windows the nature is coming inside. The living is seperated from the kitchen by a dining area. The kitchen is well equipped with oven, electric hob, microwave, water cooker, coffee machine, toaster, washing machine and dishwashing machine and a lot of pots and pans. This makes it possible to cook a nice dinner "at home" or to prepare yourself a braai. Of course you can decide to go out to dinner in the neighbour restaurant, it's a 500 m walk from our house, they serve really good food.
From the porch you have a nice view over the tropical garden, which is very crowded by beautiful tropical birds. The reed border of the pond is a paradise for nestling birds. So keep your camera and binoculars ready.
On the porch is a lounge set and a dining table. From the porch a little staircase brings you in the garden where you will find the braai. Here are also the sun beds, so that you can relax after an exiting safari.
A private carport is located at the back of the house, so you can park your car in the shade.
On arrival you can specify how many times you want housekeeping during your stay, there will not be any extra charges. That also counts for linen, guests soaps, energy and water.
You have WiFi access, you can get the code at the reception as well as the code for the phone.

Even voorstellen? Wij zijn Marie-Thérèse en Ben en wij houden erg van reizen. Niet alleen in Zuid Afrika maar ook in andere prachtige landen van de wereld. Ook Nederland heeft natuurlijk schitterende plekken waarvan we op de motor, mountainbike of racefiets genieten. Willen we iets rustigers? Dan vinden we het heerlijk om te lezen, muziek te luisteren of heerlijk te koken.
