Akasha Mountain Retreat: Part 2

So firstly, if you missed Part 1, here it is! Akasha Mountain Retreat is a Moroccan love affair – Cape Moroc style!

It’s amazing how this little fire place really heats up the large, spacious living area! With a lovely cupboard full of wood!

I took along some mint tea – but we picked some fresh mint from the garden and enjoyed our tea, Moroccan Style!

I loved the sky lights everywhere. The reeds keep the light soft during the day and at night you can see ample stars.

Wherever you are in the house, there are spectacular views to be enjoyed!

photo 1 (7)The house was originally the dam watchers house, and they’ve left some of the original wall exposed which adds to the charm. All the doors and a lot of the windows, decor etc are from Morocco. photo 1 (2)photo 4 (4) copyphoto 3 (9)photo 3 copy 2

A great example of how Moroccan decor can so easily be mixed with contemporary design. Sjoe I was in my element!

There is one en suite bathroom (Below) with a shower and bath looking over the valley, and this main bathroom (Above) with shower.

Love the large, ornate mirrors in the bedrooms.

Found this book in the house. It pretty much sums up our weekend! Thank You again Chris and Elana for your warmth! We’ll definitely be back!

The main house sleeps 6 with an outside unit containing a bedroom,  small kitchenette and bathroom! Here you can open a side door in the shower, overlooking the vista. There is just so much thoughtful attention to detail. For more info, follow Akasha Mountain Retreat on Twitter @AkashaElana and on  Facebook .

    1. Perhaps with kids you want summer to run around outside / trampoline / walks / go on river (age dependent) but winter is pretty cosy – mostly been in winter and the fire place is gorgeous.. there’s a great outdoor area with table and day bed to lunch/braai – so leaning towards summer with kids!
