Eco-accommodation on the farm
Avontuur offers accommodation for visitors that are seeking an authentic rustic experience. Two cabins are available for rent:
- Fynbos cottage:
- House of the Winds:
Situated close to the Grasberg River in a highly biodiverse area, the two-roomed Fynbos Cottage is equipped with a double bed, a fold-down double futon, a gas stove, cooking pots and utensils, crockery and cutlery and solar lighting and cell phone charger. The restio-thatched composting toilet nearby is unique and inspiring. Rainwater and borehole water are available at the cottage. Easy access to walking trails into the Fynbos area of the property.
Overlooking the immense Hantam River Valley and with vistas of Bushmanland and the Hantam, the House of the Winds is ideally situated for visiting researchers with an interest in the renosterveld parts of the farm. This two-roomed cottage is equipped with a gas stove, basic cooking pots, utensils, crockery and cutlery and solar lighting and cell phone charger. A delightful stone “kookskerm” provides a relatively safe fire place next to the cottage. Water is provided from a rainwater tank, and a composting toilet is situated nearby. Easy access to Dolerite and Tillite Renosterveld parts of the property, including major erosion control interventions.
