10 reasons why to escape to Owls Nest at Inyoni Lodge this season / Overberg, Western Cape

Inyoni Lodge offers peaceful self-catering forest cabin accommodation in the countryside near Wolvengat on Hebron Farm, which is approximately a 3-hour drive from Cape Town (Western Cape`s Overberg District). On offer family-friendly units, cabins, tree houses, and the Owls Nest, the Honeymoon Suite.

We had an opportunity to experience Owls Nest and here are our top 10 reasons why you should choose this unique getaway for your next escape.

No 1: Location – The unit is located at Hebron Farm which is surrounded by amazing views, and pure and thriving nature. Owls Nest itself is set between trees creating a nest-like environment for your stay. So tranquil!

No 2: Owls Nest itself – A fully equipped open-plan, New York loft-style house with a separate bathroom with shower, a private outside shower, and a braai area. A romantic bedroom upstairs with a balcony and large industrial-like windows – creates an amazing vibe in this very, kind-of-elegant accommodation.

No 3: It is a self-catering unit – however you may pre-order some meals from the lodge prior to arrival. Those made with tons of love meals are absolutely divine. We ended up having meals every night during our stay and truly enjoyed them.

No 4: There is so much to explore on the farm – you can explore on foot and enjoy all the facilities: communal boma and lounge (with books and board games and an additional kitchen should you need more space for entertainment and cooking), outdoor splash pool, and a lookout point where you can enjoy beautiful sunrises from. There are also whale bones – an interesting story to be discovered while you stay there.

No 5: There are also many fantastic things to do in the area:

  • Wine tastings
  • Fishing at Rietfontien, Die Dam
  • Art route in Baardskeerdersbos
  • Shark Cage diving in Gansbaai
  • Mountain biking
  • Drive in the fynbos hills
  • Bird watching

No 6: The Owls Nest has its own upstairs and downstairs balcony – the perfect spot to enjoy slow mornings and soak in some morning sun. Bliss!

No 7: If you love animals then you will love friendly furry farm residents visiting you. We looooved Champers! I think he kind of loved us too! (wink!)

No 8: An outdoor wood-fired hot tub is also available to top off the level of relaxation to the maximum. Because who doesn’t like an evening in a hot tub?

No 9: Fireplace at Owls Nest is the perfect option for those cooler evenings. And the setup is just amazing!

No 10: The hosts are super friendly and helpful. Truly warm hospitality on every level. Highly recommended.

These are our top 10 reasons – I am sure you will be able to add to this list after your stay. So do not wait any longer and book your stay today!
