Simbithi Eco Estate, South Africa
Beverley Homestead is the original, and still family-owned, historic farm house in the heart of Simbithi, once rolling sugar cane fields, now an exclusive and award-winning Eco-Estate. This characterful 5-bedroom house is set in a superb subtropical garden, shaded by massive indigenous trees, overlooking an inviting pool. Created by internationally-renowned floral artist Rosemary Ladlau, it is regarded as one of the great private gardens of South Africa.
Now the homestead has been imaginatively updated to welcome guests seeking a private retreat within minutes of the bustling holiday resort and shopping centres of Ballito, and the KwaZulu Natal North Coast’s famous surfing, diving, whale and dolphin-spotting beaches.
Comfort and style co-habit; every room has its own quirky character; indoor and outdoor living are stylishly combined. Contemporary artworks specially created for the homestead blend seamlessly with pieces by many leading local artists, African crafts, and collections of family antiques. An all-new kitchen (you can self-cater or hire a chef) opens onto a herb and vegetable garden, outdoor fireplace and barbecue.
Completely secure and secluded, guests can relax in this private world, or dip into the amenities offered on surrounding Simbithi Eco-Estate. Fascinating coastal forest walks and birding trails, a designer golf course, mini-golf, fishing, cycling, tennis, restaurants and more...
Family and friends’ reunions; wedding parties; corporate retreats: Beverley Homestead would be perfect for all these and more. It absolutely qualifies for that much-abused description “unique”
