General description

  • Main home
We live in a rural Xhoza village in the old Transkei ,Wild Coast , South Africa. Situated 30 km on a dirt road from the nearest Town, and 4 km from the beach, Very quiet and tranquil. We built the house ourselves right from the making of the bricks. Its an easy walk to unspoiled, un-populated (except for the local cows) beaches. We have 5 chickens and two dogs. My mother also stays on the property but keeps to herself . Safety has never been an issue and the locals Xhoza people are very friendly. There is a small tuck shop about 500m down the road for emergency goods eg bread, milk ect.
We use rain water and septic tanks . We also have a small veggie garden for salads.
Ive also built a Lapa (entertainment enclosure) with a Braai (BBQ) and fire stoked bread/pizza oven.

Needs and Animals

  • My property
  • 2 dogs
  • Farm animals
Our two dogs Max (Maxwells hammer), and Suzy (Suzy Quatro) are of unknown stock and Sire nor Dame is known, ( mongrels in the true sense), They are lovable and need love and scratches, rubs and cuddles.The chickens are fed by my mother so no need to worry about them. The garden is quite big #200 sq m. You do not need to do any garden work unless the desire overwhelms you. then you are free to work in the veggie garden or cut the grass. We try to live close to nature and not fall into the rat-race trap so there is no tv. Internet is via your own 3g cell phone connection. We need someone here so the house is not empty and to look after our dogs for us.

We like to classify Luxurious as sitting on the veranda with a sundowner or glass of wine watching the ocean in the distance and the local herd boys herding their cattle home in the afternoons. We also have the most amazing sunsets and sun rises and the sky at night is to be beholden
