stonecrop lodge

This earthy lodge knows it's cool to be green, and that saving our precious resources is the right thing to do for our planet and neighbourhood. We're all in this together, so we turn off lights, use energy efficient light-bulbs, use gas stoves for cooking, consider the scarcity of water in our country before replacing towels or taking long showers and recycle glass, plastic and paper. As responsible fellow travelers on this space ship of ours, we know that little things do have a huge impact!

our units 

Stonecrop offers two studio apartments which can accommodate two guests each, two apartments which can accommodate three guests each (the third guest on a sleeper couch in the lounge area) and one which is ideal for a family of three. The original garden cottage (Butterfly) is suitable for a night or two at most as it does not have a kitchen or television set. Each unit has a private entrance, and all are comfortably furnished and boast a homely, welcoming feel with views onto the (in summer) lush sub-tropical gardens surrounding the buildings. The beds in all of the units, except the one in the second bedroom in Stardust, are built in and all the beds have firm mattresses.

Cloud Nine and Stardust are lower and upper level units in the same building while Coppertone, Gold Moss and Moonglow are adjacent to one another in a separate building in a stable-like configuration. All the units are uniquely and eclectically decorated, and provided with crisp white linen and towels.

The units Coppertone, Cloud Nine, Gold Moss, Moonglow and Stardust have fully equipped kitchens/ettes.
All units are equipped with a small library, hair dryer, heater, movable fan and either a fridge or bar fridge, and a microwave oven. Our rates include tea, coffee and rusks. An in-room continental breakfast consisting of muffins, muesli,yogurt, fruit and fruit juice is available on request at an extra charge of R65 per person per serving. Bathroom amenities include shower gel, shampoo, body lotion, air freshener and toilet paper. We provide cleaning material and dishcloths for use in the kitchen.
