What We Say
How about some tree top romance? Sycamore Avenue near Mooi River has seven creatively appointed tree houses, perfectly suited for a high altitude week end away. Now here's a recipe for a bit of fun!
Sycamore Avenue Treehouses; dinner, bed and breakfast.

Live life out on the limb and stay in one of your eccentric and romantic Treehouses to relive your childhood fantasies on the Kwa- Zulu Natal Midlands Meander.

"If we cant fly with birds we can at least nest with them."

Our Unique artistically designed Treehouses will inspire and encourage you to relax and unwind in a romantic setting. Come and enjoy yourself or by either soaking in a private Jacuzzi Spa bath in each one of the treehouses, warm yourself by a cosy fire or indulging in a glass of wine on the patio high in the trees whilst watching the sunset over Giants Castle in the Drakensberg. Or stay in one of our Country Cottages, just off the avenue of Sycamore trees.

We are a dinner, bed and breakfast establishment, serving a mini buffet for supper and a full English breakfast. All our accommodation has small fridges for wine and beer, kettles, teas and coffees

We are not self-catering but braai facilities are available at the Cottages, please note this is a non-smoking establishment, but there is smoking areas. We have secure parking and electronic gates.

"Loved our stay at Sycamore. Comfortable, quirky accommodation with the luxury of a fireplace and jacuzzi to make for a perfectly cosy (and lazy) escape from reality. The food was delicious, particularly our special-request dinner- absolutely superb.I am sorry that we booked for one night only and will definitely go back."

"If you are looking for 5 star hotel accommodation - give this a miss --- This establishment is where dreams; fantasies and fairies are revisited. You would expect to see elves; gnomes; fairies and goblins frolicking in the gardens; such is the ambience created by the treehouses.As you arrive you are likely to be greeted by Tammy and Tommy(the resident sheepdogs), who will insist upon the obligatory kick of their rugby ball. Immediately upon arrival, Martin (manager) Gary (owner) and Florence (the culinary wizard) will make you feel part of the family --- nothing for them is too much trouble and if you twist Garys arm ever so slightly --- He will whip out his telescope and he will take you on a tour of the Galaxies way beyond our comprehension provided the sky is clearThere are 6 treehouses and each one is different and unique from Romantic to Bottle... You can never be bored! Romantic lives up to its name It is quirky; rickety, lopsided and full of little hand carved treasures; from wooden door hinges to door locking mechanisms everything a treehouse should be. The house in spite of being a treehouse is so warm and amazingly comfortable. You can relax in the Jacuzzi with a glass of your favourite drink and watch the sun set over Giants Castle or sit on the deck and watch the sunrise What more can a King and Queen want of their very own tree castle!!!The food which is served in the main dining room, is 5 star plus a lot more and there is plenty of it Highest quality.This is the ideal place to spend 2 or more days It is not a typical B&B --- This is for people who still have adventure in their soul and a child in their heart. I am already planning my next escape to the world of make believeOnly one small drawback -- A little bit of traffic noise from the N3."

"My husband and I had the most enchanting anniversary weekend in the Faraway Treehouse, with the quite setting, beautiful view and unique decor we felt like we where in a whimsical storybook. Sycamore really went the extra mile to make our stay extra special with the romantic set up. We will defiantly be recommend this spot to others."

"My wife and I spent two nights in the romantic tree house as part of our honeymoon tour. The accommodation is quaint, the food is excellent and the atmosphere is so relaxing. Cannot understand why it's only a 3 star. I could not find any faults and have to highly recommend it for anyone who is still a child at heart!"

"We stayed in the Bottle Treehouse on the last night of our honeymoon, and was extremely disappointed that we did not get there earlier!The treehouse is beautifully decorated with handmade woodcarvings!The mist rolling in from the mountains and the surrounding trees makes this the most romantic place I've ever been!We had a lovely dinner with our hosts, and the breakfast was brilliant!I'll recommend this place for everyone going on honeymoon, or just looking for a romantic weekend getaway! Just make sure that you have enough time, because as soon as you get there, you will find it hard to leave!"
"Totally relaxing....."

"We found the venue and room incredibly relaxing, to the extent that we feel more relaxed after two days than a week in another establishment. To hear the birds in the tree's canopy (instead of a TV) was extremely peaceful and it was great to leave the city stresses behind. It's location is convenient within the Midlands Meander and we thoroughly enjoyed driving the quiet roads as opposed to the busy toll road - one easily forgets the traditional lifestyle that exists just meters from the "fast lane". The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and we thank them all for their incredible hospitality."
