Guests to purchase, from the caretaker on the property, petrol to run the generator for lights at night as well as firewood. It takes approx. 1 liter per hour. For additional lighting please bring torches. If guests prefer, they can bring own firewood and unleaded petrol for generator (5 litres is usually enough for a weekend), however, tricky getting this across to the house so easier to purchase on site at very reasonable prices.

Pets upon request only. The caretaker and his family live on the same property with their dogs who are accustomed to visitors.

This house is not fenced, however the river provides a barrier so that dogs cannot reach the road unless they swim. Kaaimans Deckhouse backs onto the mountain.
