Moon Shine on Whiskey Creek Self Catering Accommodation In The Crags

The Setting:

10 minutes from Plettenberg Bay, 1000 miles from reality, in the very Heart of The Garden Route and close to all it's attractions.

Moon Shine encompasses 14 hectares of unspoiled indigenous forest. With great respect to the environment a small and enchanting venue has been created for you to appreciate all the natural splendours. Experience the forest from the comfort of your stunningly hand crafted wooden cabin nestled among the trees.

The Cabins:

There is a queen size bed, fireplace in the living area, and kitchenette with small fridge & stove. Both the living and sleeping areas have French doors opening onto an elevated and private deck. At a squeeze 1 small kid can be accommodated on an additional mattress on the floor. "Bushpig" has a flat screen TV with select DSTV channels. Free Wifi is offered in both cabins.

"Tree Frog"

With easy access via a wooden walkway "Tree Frog" is elevated high amongst the trees offering magical views of the forest and its creatures.

French doors open onto the deck. The cabin has free Wifi


A spacious 2 bedroom cabin, Vervet is special in many ways. Most notably is the superbly mosaic "shower tower" - reason enough to check-in to this cabin. Both the main bedroom and the lounge open onto the large, private deck. The second bedroom sleeps 4 on 2 generously proportioned sets of bunk beds. The living area is open plan to the kitchen with a fireplace in the lounge. "Vervet" has a flat screen TV with select DSTV channels. The cabin has free Wifi.

"Fly Me to The Moon"

Kick off your heels and walk down a 50 meter foot path from where you park your car. Hidden in the forest canopy you will find a unique romantic hide-away.  Lots of light, with bold colours and small details, the cabin has everything 2 people might need to escape the crazy world for a while.  The cabin has a fabulous Queen size tent-like bed with drop away sash window;  a private mosaic and glass shower with a view on the deck and an en suite bathroom with toilet & basin. There is a cosy fire place inside & braai area outside, a kitchenette with undercounter fridge, 2 plate stove with small oven.  The cabin is fully equipped with crockery, cooking utensils, cutlery and all you need for self catering.

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.
