Homtini Guest Farm with its stunning views of the Garden Route's Outeniqua Mountains is a 90Ha working farm nestling in the indigenous forest overlooking the Homtini pass. It lies along the old Seven-Passes Route, looks out over the famous Millwood Forest Reserve and yet is only 20 minutes from the coast and the bustling resort town of Knysna. Choose between a forest cottage with its balcony nestling amongst the trees or a luxury lodge tent tucked sympathetically into the fynbos and immerse yourself in the peace and tranquility that only nature can offer. Spend your days exploring the farm's own forest reserve, getting to know the animals, lazing by the pool or take a trip to a myriad of local attractions, many within 'half-an-hours' drive. In the evening why not book a sauna or simply sit on your deck watching the African sun disappear over the nearby mountain range before cooking a meal or having a 'braai', made with delicious locally sourced produce. It is a 20-minute drive to Knysna, 5 minutes from local shops and 15 minutes to the nearest beach. We are surrounded by several Nature Reserves whilst being situated in a friendly rural community.
Forest Chalets: Truly private and yet surprisingly affordable, our forest and farm accommodation consists of three luxury self-catering cottages with their own tree-top' veranda's and one farm bungalow. All cottages have stunning views and offer a great deal of privacy and tranquillity. They sleep 5 in our biggest, and 4 in each other one. They are well kitted for all your self-catering needs. Luxury Safari Tented Lodges: For families and groups wanting a place to relax and 'chill-out' together with evenings spent around a roaring camp fire, then our larger self contained tents are the way to go- 2 family lodge tents (each sleeping family of 4) on a secluded site with a campfire and a separate shared rustic kitchen but your own braai, fridge and tea-making facilities. These tents have what is arguably the shower with the best view in the Southern Cape! If it is a truly relaxed, secluded and romantic experience you are seeking then the couple's luxury lodge tents tucked away on their own on the edge of the indigenous forest are definitely for you.. - 2 private & fully self-contained luxury tents for couples, in the shade of the indigenous forest, looking down the Homtini river valley. Tents are on a large, secluded wooden deck, with en-suite bathrooms and a verandah.
