The Retreat is situated in the quiet village of Aurora, 35 km inland on the West Coast, nestled below the Piketberg mountains. The Retreat is one of Aurora's old homesteads, built in 1928; it has thick walls, wooden floors and high wooden ceilings. The property has beautiful trees and a developing garden, and there are several areas within and around the home and garden for sitting and relaxing.
The house comprises 4 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 8 guests. There are 2 bedrooms with a double bed in each, 1 bedroom with a king-size bed, and 1 bedroom with 2 single beds. These bedrooms have mosquito nets. There is 1 bathroom with a shower and toilet, and one separate toilet. Please take note of this when booking for several guests as facilities are limited.
The kitchen is the hub of the house, and features a long wooden table for meals. The kitchen is equipped with a gas hob, an electric oven, a large fridge, an under-counter deep freeze, a dishwasher, and a washing machine. The kitchen opens to an area with 2 large wing-back armchairs in front of an open fireplace. This area leads to the lounge, with double doors to a long, wide verandah. This is a lovely cool spot on a hot summer morning.
In winter, apart from the open fireplace, there is a Queen Anne stove in the lounge to keep cosy. In summer, relax on the verandah listening to the birds, cool off in the swimming pool, or read a book or snooze in the hammock slung between the trees. Sundowners on the verandah while watching the sunset is the ideal way to spend the evening. The pool is not fenced off, nor does it have a safety net, so children need to be supervised at all times.
Please be aware that Aurora is a small, quiet village; this is to be respected, and guests may not play loud music or party noisily.
