About

Our house in Mbabane, Eswatini is an ancient stone age shelter and ceremonial site that dates back 25,000 years. Formed from a giant granite boulder and blended with contemporary architecture, the space is dramatic, unusual, and deeply peaceful. It's also secluded (with ample parking), fully furnished, and cozy with an equipped kitchen, 8-person dining area, spacious lounge with TV, and 2 bedrooms. With spectacular view of Pine Valley from the doorstep, the property is rural, rustic, green, filled with trees and rock outcroppings. The house has all the basics - 2 bedrooms (lower bedroom with a king bed, upper bedroom with a double bed), open-plan lounge and dining area, and kitchen with fridge, double-burner 5-burner range/oven, all crockery, electric kettle, toaster, and cooking equipment. Heating unit and fans provided. Wireless internet available. Housekeeping included and laundry available on request. Note that while all are welcome, this property is not recommended for children under 5 or anyone with mobility challenges due to the uneven surfaces, stairs, and low-hanging rock formations. The property is located on a side road at the base of Pine Valley Hill, just a few kilometers from Sibebe Rock and steps from the Mbuluzi River, waterfall, and hiking area, but enclosed, secure, and private. Downtown Mbabane is a 10 minute drive away, where you can find grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacies, etc. Day/weekend trips to Eswatini's game parks are easy, with Kruger Park in South Africa only about two hours away. Johannesburg, South Africa and Maputo, Mozambique are each 3.5 - 4 hour drives from Mbabane.
