Wishbone Waters Self Catering Accommodation In The Crags

Wishbone Waters is located 2.5 km north of the N2 in the Redford farming area of The Crags, between Plettenberg Bay and Nature's Valley. Magnificent views of the Tsitsikamma mountains can be enjoyed from all aspects of the farm, which has in the course of the last two decades been cleared of alien invasive vegetation and allowed to revert to fynbos and forest. Birdlife is prolific, and has been encouraged by the extra plantings of indigenous trees and shrubs on the property. There are various paths that can be walked on the farm.

Dragonfly Cottage

Dragonfly Cottage is the fully equipped 2-bedroomed self-catering cottage on the farm, recently expanded and renovated. It provides ample living space for a family of four, or two couples. The main bedroom has an extra-length queen bed, and en-suite bathroom with shower. The second bedroom has twin beds. The larger bathroom has a bath and shower. The spacious living / dining / kitchen area opens onto the patio, where braai facilities are at hand. There is a closed combustion stove for cosy heating in colder weather. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering, and includes a washing-machine and a mini-dishwasher.

General notes –

  • Wi-fi is available, and there is a satellite dish for DSTV – bring your own decoder.
  • Wood is provided for braaiing and the combustion stove.
  • Linen and towels are provided; beach / swimming towels are available on request. There are electric blankets available for colder weather.
  • Servicing is generally two or three times a week, with a change of linen every four days or so in longer stays. Extra servicing can be arranged in advance at own cost.
  • The cottage is fully fenced, and by arrangement is pet-friendly for a well controlled dog – there is a levy applicable.

A glade of trees between the cottage and the main house ensures privacy and provides lovely shady spots to picnic or simply chill out. Guests are also welcome to share the swimming-pool, jacuzzi and entertainment room near the main farmhouse, as well as a boma which overlooks a pretty dam. Fun-fishing for bass can be done in the dam. Walking, cycling and birdwatching are popular activities in the greater area. Many of the local farms are affiliated to the Redford Conservancy, and ascribe to recommended nature conservation principles.

Tourist attractions within 5-7km include: Birds of Eden, Tenikwa, Monkeyland, the Elephant Sanctuary, Lawnwood Snake Sanctuary, Africanyon adventure abseiling, Nature's Way Farm Stall and many more. There are three wine estates in the immediate area for wine-tasting and delicious meals. There are also a few other restaurants in the area. There is usually polo activity with matches at the nearby Kurland Estate in the summer and autumn holiday season. Local farming activities include vegetables, honeybush tea, almonds and macadamia nuts, as well as cattle and horses.

The closest beaches are at Nature's Valley and Keurboomstrand, each approximately 15 minutes' scenic drive from The Crags. Plettenberg Bay itself is 22km from the farm, and has beaches, golf courses and plenty of options for shopping, restaurants and other activities such as deep-sea fishing and whale-watching excursions. Knysna is about 45 minutes’ drive from The Crags, as is Stormsriver, which has various adventure offerings, and the Tsitsikamma National Park with its pristine Marine Protected Area.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
