Lush rainforests and breathtaking views surround Matere Cottage.
You can use the small TV but you will have to bring your own decoder and DStv card. In case of power cuts, the 2.5 KVA generator will power the fridge, TV, decoder and the lights. Petrol consumption will have to be paid for the going rate. The generator consumes 1.5 litres per hour but it does not pull the geyser.
