Camissa Farm: Avocado Cabin

  • 4 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

A once-neglected, alien-overrun 60-hectare tract of land in the Banhoek Valley has been transformed by the Lundie family into a thriving farm. Replenished by their “flerd” (free-roaming, grass-reared cattle, sheep and chickens), Camissa’s soil now provides vegetables, meat and eggs for the family, along with olives, avocados and almonds. An array of happy guests keep the Lundie’s four modern-rustic cabins (around the farm dam), as well as the Bed in the Shed (a loft apartment in the barn), very busy indeed. All five options are off-grid and decorated with flair, and have phenomenal views of the Simonsberg and Groot Drakenstein mountains.


Avocado Cottage is positioned right next to the dam at the top of the horseshoe valley. It is an airy cabin with direct access to endless hiking and mountain biking. While it does not have a hot tub (unlike the other cabins) it enjoys the most privileged position, right on the water next to a large gum forest. The deck reaches out over the dam to allow you to jump straight into the water.
