What We Say
Now here’s something special. Your own little stone and thatch cottage nestled under some trees on the crest of a hill, with nothing but the two of you and oodles of tranquility. Paraffin lamps, dimly lit bubble baths in the stone bathroom with freestanding bath and hours spent on the stoep gazing out over the Magalies Mountains. You’re not dreaming, if ever there was a place to reconnect, Dream Lodge is it.
Gecko, Chameleon and Agama cottages at Dream Lodge are redefining the romantic experience. Share a candlelit dinner, a luxurious sunset and good company or discover nature with your kids at Chameleon. No electricity, no TV, no rush, just you, your partner and nature. <br /><br />The Dream Lodge is meant for any two people who would like to spend some quality time together. It is an opportunity to discover yourself and your partner at a deeper level, with the service and privacy directed towards that goal. The space is completely private and very safe. he ideal place to bring down those city stress levels. The cottages are 2km apart, so privacy is still guaranteed.<br /><br />We have three cottages: Gecko is surrounded by acacia bush and a truly magical atmosphere. It can be reached by most normal vehicles. Agama, is on a hilltop with a magnificent view of the Magalies Mountains, but can only be reached by 4x4 or high clearance vehicle. We do deliver guests there if they prefer. There is also Chameleon cottage. No cottages have electricity. Gecko has a gas geyser and Agama uses solar water heating, while both cottages have wood burning fireplaces.<br /><br />There is a swimming pool at the main house which guests are invited to use.<br /><br />Please note the different facilities Dream Lodge has to offer:<br /><br />Children facilities - Chameleon cottage is in a fenced area safe for small children to play in. The farm further offers children the opportunity to ride on a tractor trailer, help to fetch eggs from the chickens and help with goat and duck feeding time. <br /><br />Honeymoon - Dream Lodge offers a two night "wedding night stay". Honeymoon couples will be treated to a romantic reception with sparkling wine, flowers of your choice and even butler service! Depending on your choices, an extra cost may apply.<br /><br />Beauty services - Dream Lodge has a visiting masseuse who can offer massages at your cottage for an extra cost.

"We stayed for two nights at the Dream Lodge and we both loved it. I would highly recommend it to anybody who wants to spend a few days in a beautiful environment and just relax. Not to mention that you can sit outside and become part of nature without any noise and a wonderful view. We enjoyed the quiet evenings and the candles made it very romantic. The room was perfectly clean, well-equipped, everything worked. The food was perfect and Sam went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. I really cannot say any bad thing about our weekend and would definitely recommend the Dream Lodge to any one that needs to relax and kindle their relationship. We had a great time and I will return as soon as it possible. Thank you to Sam for making our stay memorable. Frik and Magda"

"I am so relaxed. I can't even think of a title for this review. Can't remember when last I actually 'heard' silence. What a great getaway it was. A more romantic place we couldn't have asked for. Thank you very, very much!"

"An idyllic find. Clean and simple. We loved not having electricity and the romantic lantern and candlelight, but enjoyed that the place was equipped with solar power for the geyser, fridge and even lights, if required. A real return-to-nature with beautiful views and plenty of rustic charm. The hosts were wonderfully relaxed and made us feel like welcome old friends. We were in Chameleon Cottage with our two small boys who loved the wild veld, local goats, chickens and donkeys, and had wonderful playtime with our host's adorable little girls. A fantastic place to relax and reconnect. We loved the old-school wood fired stove which filled the place with warmth and nostalgia."
