TREEHAVEN is a place of peace to retreat to after a busy day at play on the Garden Route, one of those special places sought out by the discerning traveler..... a feeling you’re ‘in the middle of nowhere’ yet around the corner from everywhere.
Your hosts Feo and Carol Sachs are retirees with a difference. Feo’s creativity designing houses for more decades than he cares to remember has seamlessly transmuted to writing zany, witty poetry called Clerihews and making assemblages of various kinds. Carol’s the artist and the guest house has become a gallery where her life drawing and abstract paintings are displayed.
TREEHAVEN’s modern architecture nestles in the indigenous gardens overlooking the Piesang River valley, only minutes from the village and golden beaches. Our discerning travelers are overcome with that special feeling that they are ‘in the middle of nowhere, yet around the corner from everywhere’ TREEHAVEN is a place of peace to retreat to after a busy day at play on the Garden Route. The Zen atmosphere of uncluttered living in this tranquil setting relaxes mind and body allowing the environment to heal the bruised soul. Read our Guests comments on the Accommodation pages
Carol and Feo and their staff take pride in their green policy of recycling everything possible and taking measures to save water and electricity.
Built on a steep slope, TREEHAVEN is not for the physically challenged. Rustic paths wind through exuberant ground covered slopes to link apartments.
The three self-catering units allow total independence. Accommodation is flexible with units sleeping 2 to 4 to 6 adults. The layout is ideal for family groups and reunions for up to 10 adults, with a couple of sofa-beds available for the kids. Most important, each unit offers peaceful privacy with rooms opening on to shady patios with barbecue where you can hear the raucous call and often catch a glimpse of the elusive Knysna Loerie (Tauraco corythaix) and scores of other bird species.
