Company Description

Masescha means Hidden: the ?Hidden? valley

MASESCHA COUNTRY ESTATE

Masescha means Hidden: the ‘Hidden’ valley

The experience of Masescha is peace, quiet and tranquillity. Here, guests are assured of a relaxing and restful stay, they sleep well and enjoy the delightful environment in clean, well-equipped facilities.

We are situated 15 minutes from Knysna and 10 minutes from Plettenberg Bay in the Riviera of Southern Africa. Our Country Estate is in the heart of the Garden Route within close proximity to all the many tourist attractions in this world-renowned area.

Set on 12 hectares of land, a meander around the garden can lead you over the Boskop River winding through the Estate and into the cool indigenous forest revealing abundant bird life, ferns, fynbos and flora. The cottages are nestled into well-stocked, established rolling garden and lawn with some lovely specimen trees. Our large swimming pool is enjoyable for either a cooling dip on hot days or for an energetic few lengths before breakfast. For Birdwatchers there is such a huge variety of bird life which would keep any enthusiast content (see separate Birdwatching page) - so don’t forget your binoculars. There are seven picturesque water dams, three of which are stocked with Tilapia for the fishing enthusiast so you might like to try your luck and bring your fishing rod (also available for hire). Baboons are often heard in the forest and we receive regular visits from the Vervet Monkeys. Bushbuck and other deer have also been spotted as occasional visitors through the garden.

The majestic forest backdrop is a scenic delight suitable for families or couples looking for a restful and rejuvenating break. A true haven of tranquillity.

Accommodation

Above by way of a short steep staircase is a bedroom with two single beds leading onto a veranda giving fantastic views over the gardens, dams and forest. The open sunny veranda lends itself to late morning breakfasts and sundowners.

 Our guest cottages are well separated throughout the garden, each having their own individual character and have been renovated to include all the conveniences of your own home. All accommodation is regularly serviced and each fully equipped for self-catering. The kitchens are stocked with crockery, cutlery, glassware, utensils and pots and pans, and the bedrooms and bathrooms have already been prepared with linen, towels and toiletries. A welcome selection of tea and coffee are provided on arrival. Each unit also has its own outdoor braai facility. For those lazy days, upon request, a scrumptious full English breakfast may be served on our main decked terrace overlooking the views.
