Leopardstone Hill has two exclusive cottages, both situated privately on the property. Private and secure parking as well as private entrances, separate barbeque areas and individual gardens ensure that you will always feel secluded. The cottages are fully equipped and immaculately furnished, and come standard with panoramic sea and mountain views and one spectacular sunset every day! When you tire of gazing at the scenery, both our cottages have DSTV. A load of firewood is supplied with which to barbeque in the summer and to light the inside fire in winter (Stone Cottage). (Electric blankets are also
supplied in winter).
The Faraday family invites you to their fynbos paradise. We have found heaven…and we want to share it with you!
Situated high on the slopes of the green Noodhoek Valley is Leopardstone Hill. Named for the endangered Western Leopard Toad, we back up our green credentials by providing essential habitat for this endemic species and for other local flora and fauna.
But our relaxation credentials are even more important! With panoramic Atlantic Ocean and mountain views, a sweeping garden filled with sun birds and sugar birds, a natural rock pool for your swimming pleasure and an organic veggie garden, you will find the days slipping away as you tap into the slower rhythms of nature.
The luxuriously appointed Stone Mountain Cottage is a unique home. Handcrafted from local rock, the interior has a warm and cosy atmosphere, complimented by lamps and the jetmaster fireplace. Stone Cottage is a superior self-catering home with the best of finishes. Accommodation for 6 is provided in 3 bedrooms, with the queen loft-style bedroom accessed by a spiral staircase. The cottage has a unique relaxing outdoor shower. With hot and cold water, and gorgeous sea views, you might spend more time there than is strictly necessary!
The charming Pebble Beach Cottage sleeps 4 guests and is delightfully decorated in a coastal theme. Fresh blues and whites dominate the interior, while original children’s art work, a bucket and spade installation and red kitchen stools add whimsical touches. Pebble has an expansive sea-facing patio, with an additional barbeque deck. The main bedroom, with its generous queen bed, is dressed in white linen and opens onto the panoramic view. The second bedroom with twin beds opens onto a private courtyard with a fountain. This gorgeously fun cottage overlooks the garden and on towards the Atlantic Ocean and Noodhoek Mountains.
We maintain a large organic veggie garden from which you can pick your evening greens. The sparkling natural rock pool with a relaxation deck is for your enjoyment. Kiddies can play on the junglegym and trampoline while you relax in the hammock.
Delicious breakfast trays are offered to our guests by prior arrangement.
We offer a ‘basics’ shopping service for guests arriving late or with small children. Items such as bread, milk, cheese, cereals, fruit, biscuits and other cupboard basics can be stocked in your fridge prior to arrival and by prior arrangement.
Leopardstone Hill is situated in the quiet rural village of Noordhoek, which is close to all tourist attractions. In Noordhoek we are not far from anything - 30 minutes to Cape Point and 30 minutes to Cape Town. From penguins (Boulders Beach) to Ponies (sunset rides on Noordhoek Beach); from swimming to sailing; from exercise (golf courses, hiking trails) to eating (many fine restaurants nearby); you will always find that you will have too much to do and too little time. We are right in the centre of the tourist routes, but we feel miles from everything!
