Five Assegai’s Country Estate near Machadodorp  offers a single very private and exclusive luxury country house, with 4 double bed rooms en-suit for the discerning lover of country life.

(This home in the country caters for only one party at a time and is not suitable for couples over weekends and holidays as we charge a minimum rate of R2500 per night Friday‚to Sunday. (We will accommodate couples during the week at our normal per person rate)

Originally built in the 1850 by Paul Kruger on the then main route to the goldfields of Barberton, as a place of rest for the wagon trails before they attempted the Hells Kloof Pass‚ this charming home has been enlarged and artistically renovated to again offer a luxury retreat in total isolation on this spectacular estate.

Fully equipped and serviced with wonderful walks, trout fishing on dams close to the house, we allow pets (as long as the owners are well behaved); quad bikes, scramblers, 4×4’s  and mountain bikes are also welcome.The house boasts an open plan kitchen, sitting and dinning room with cozy fireplace, TV, video and DSTV.
