The first time we arrived at Away with the Fairies, we instantly fell in love, My sister and I are avid road trippers and have seen many hostels around the country, but there is something truly magical about this one.
Situated right next to the indigenous forrest one often get to see the Knysna Loerie , Cape Parrots and Samango monkeys right in the garden. They have a misuse on the property, who herself have magical healing hands... The best day ever; Go for a hike in the forrest, a massage followed by a hot bath at the edge of a cliff and a cold one form the bar.
The kitchen cooks lovely meals made with love, staff are super helpful and a great way to get insight into local spots as well as a few laughs and interesting conversations around the bonfire. There is a tree house which is great for sundowners and sunrises. Lovely view of the mountains form there.
There are a lot of activities to do, we did the Abseil down Madonna and Child waterfall, an exhilarating experience. Mountain biking and horse riding is also highly recommended, as this is a great way to see the area.
We have been on various occasions, defiantly a must see destination.
