We are a petfriendly establishment!


Mahem is the Afrikaans name for the grey crowned crane. The actual call of the grey crowned crane is “mahem” and you will hear the call from the house mostly early in the morning or evening. Built around 1890, this spacious but cosy home has been refurbished and extended to make a spacious entertainment area with open plan layout from the lounge to the adjacent kitchen. There are 4 bedrooms and a bathroom section that has a full bathroom with shower, toilet and bath, as well as a separate toilet, and a shower room. All bedrooms have wall heaters; bedding and towels are provided. There is a fireplace in the lounge and an old coal stove in the dining room. The bathroom/dining room/kitchen area all have underfloor heating. The farm kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering and has two fridges, a gas stove with electric oven, microwave, washing machine and a dishwasher. There is also a Weber braai available if you want to cook on the patio, which has spectacular views over the wetland. The property is fenced.
