Five stylish bedrooms include quality king-size or twin beds, full bathrooms (free standing shower, bath etc), kitchenette (fully equipped with stove / oven, microwave, fridge, kettle, cutlery, crockery etc.) and balcony / verandah with lovely views onto the river. Every unit has a Weber braai at its disposal. Please note: The satellite TV (including M-Net) is a shared one.The balcony and private verandahs invite guests to relax and enjoy the spectacular views and the tranquil surroundings. The sun sets behind the river and the hills which can be experienced from anywhere on the property. Why not have a swim in the river, or catch some fish or enjoy the scenery on one of our canoes?FacilitiesThe Anchorage is operated by a friendly German-South African couple - Annette and Craig Thorne - who have been in the hospitality industry for many years. You can choose between Self Catering or Bed and Breakfast accommodation and delicious breakfasts are served.A swimming pool with spacious outside area rounds up the beautiful setting. A comfortable lounge including a fire place was added in December 2012.The Anchorage is a perfect place to unwind and relax. Braai (barbecue) areas (ie Weber braai's) and canoes available. 9-hole golf course, scenic walks and river and sea fishing. Wir sprechen Deutsch.
