Soetdoring Cabin

  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

On Kiesseskraal Farm on the Van der Stel Pass, not far from Botrivier, these stylishly converted shipping containers are the perfect off-the-grid stay for an overdose of nature and seclusion (“copia” means abundance in Latin). Owner Lucas Steyn built them himself, with comfort and the unspoilt surroundings in mind, and each cabin contains one luxurious bedroom and bathroom, an indoor fireplace, a customised hammock and a wood-fired hot tub with breathtaking views of the expansive fields and rolling hills. The recently added Soetdoring cabin is slick and super-modern, with a “glass cube” bedroom and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise the views. With little phone reception and no WiFi or TV, there’s nothing to do but unplug and enjoy the hilltop views and nature’s soundtrack.
