the Sani View experience

“Sani View” nestles in a quiet area in a manicured enclosed garden, making this the perfect place to stay with pets and family.

Sani View offers uninterrupted views of the southern Drakensberg mountains and easy access to surrounding areas and activities. The main house accommodates 10 in five bedrooms, and has a cozy lounge with spacious adjoining kitchen and dining area, while the quaint and rustic free-standing cottage on the property sleeps two. Himeville Common can be accessed not far from the front gate, and offers opportunities for both canine and human guests to stretch their legs amid magnificent mountain and farmland scenery.
Small town hospitality abounds, and surrounding coffee shops and home industries are proud of their country cuisine. One can access supermarkets, small antique shops, art galleries, and curio shops filled with the scent of lavender and lime within a 6km radius. Early evening is punctuated by the lowing of cattle as they move through the twilight to milking stations. The sun sets in a kaleidoscope of colour behind Giants Cup and as night falls, clear skies provide incredible star-gazing opportunities.

What makes us different

Sani View combines a self-contained home and free-standing cottage in a fully enclosed garden to accommodate pets. The managers are available 24 hours a day to assist with any needs. Walks from the front gate offer magnificent views of the mountains and farmlands. 

This accommodation is a real ‘home from home’ and allows you the freedom and comfort to enjoy the stillness and quiet of a country environment.  

No surcharges for pets.

Nala and Bashan visited us in November 2014. We hope they enjoyed their stay and they are welcome to return any time.
