Atikhama is a spacious home set in a large garden and is situated in the quaint village of McGregor. It's a fusion of Zen luxury and elegance, making it a perfect out-of-town getaway for families and friends (2 hrs from Cape Town).
Atikhama has three spacious bedrooms and three bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have king size beds and are both en-suite. The third bedroom has 3 beds and its own bathroom across the passage. Two of the beds are often pushed together to make a third king sized bed with appropriate linen. There is a kid's camp cot in the laundry. The house is well equipped with luxury white linen, down duvets, feather pillows and fluffy towels.
There is a large lounge with an open fireplace leading onto a fully equipped kitchen which has 2 eye-level ovens, stove, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge and freezer. The laundry has washing machine and tumble drier (not that one would want that for a weekend).
Kids love this house as there is a large garden to play in with swings and a sandpit. Take your favorite ball sports and bikes with you. There is a 4m diameter plunge pool above ground with retractable steps making it difficult for toddlers to venture in. There are kid's videos and lots of board games to occupy them and give you a break. There is a DVD/VCR unit and mini CD stereos in the lounge and 2 bedrooms. Major DSTV events are usually viewed in the pub on the main street.
Atikhama also has wonderful outdoor entertainment facilities:
For dining "Al Fresco" there is a long veranda, with tables, running the full length of the house and a lounging area in the corner where one can take tea, read books, chat, and simply relax.
The open-air "Boma" was designed for enjoying the magnificent night skies of the Karoo. Its addition to Atikhama was an inspiration from many safari adventures. This outdoor circular fireplace is the perfect evening gathering place for sharing fireside stories. There is also a braai area and a Weber.
