Two additional guest rooms each sleep 2 (also in 2 adjacent single beds), and a fourth room (study) has a bunk bed. The guest rooms are supported by another full bathroom (bath, shower, loo, basin) and another private loo accessible from the outside. Crisp 100% cotton linen, sumptuous pillows and bath towels are provided but please bring your own beach towels. Other facilities include a lounge with bar, flat screen TV with DSTV (Family Package), pool table, ADSL line with wifi, two secure garages, a large fully equipped kitchen with stove top, oven, fridge, microwave and dishwasher. The separate laundry has a washing machine and the veranda has a Weber (no open fires please). The home is on a flat service (wooden floors, wheel chair accessible) and is surrounded by a wooden fence so pets are welcome. Serviced once a week for long stays, or more often by arrangement. Kayaks, paddles and life-jackets are provided. Bring along your fishing rods for bass fishing off the Jetty. Great beach, lake and forest walks and cycling routes are literally on your doorstep. It’s a nature lover’s paradise and we promote sustainable living (solar geyser, rain water, recycling, ethical tourism). Otters Creek is 4 km from the village of Sedgefield, an hour from George Airport and 20 min from Knysna (co-ordinates: 34°2'1.58'S 22°50'39.38'E). More

Stayed here for two nights en route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, wish if had been longer as excellent roomy property with superb views and many opportunities for walking, kayaking and general relaxing enjoyment. This place really is a hidden gem, very highly recommended!
