The Venus Cabin

A luxury tiny-home with a stunning view and the sounds of the river.
The Venus Cabin, named for the evening star that follows the sunsets framed by the main view of this site. A double-story tiny-home, special designed for a stunning site - nestled on a slope half in forest and half looking out over the Sima Kade valley. The stream starts ascending towards the rock-pool nearby, giving you the gentle sounds of water falling. The cabin features large sliding doors that open it up to the front terrace with a fire place and outdoor bath. The back door leads to a forest terrace with outdoor shower, daybed and dinning table.
Larger than the Kama Cabin, this one was designed to have an upstairs bathroom and bigger kitchen, while keeping the cozy, warm cabin feel. The wood burning fire-place will keep you warm in winter and the forest will keep you cool in summer. The cabin is also located just 5 minutes walk/hike from the rock pool and high up on the hillside with a perfect view of the Magalies valley. We even built a yoga deck out in the front facing the view for meditations and salutations.

"A relaxation station, peeking out of the forest, with mountain views and river sounds."

    Magaliesburg has a variety of activities and adventures, from hikes, cycling/running trails, game drives, balloon rides, historical sites, markets, restaurants and breweries.

    There is a decently stocked Super Spar (grocery store) in Magaliesburg town - 10 minutes away.
