About The EcoTreehouse

The EcoTreehouse is a fairytale-like wooden eco cabin situated just outside Swellendam's historic centre in the beautiful Hermitage Valley of the Western Cape. This scenic cabin, perched atop a 1.4-hectare smallholding, offers a truly idyllic retreat where guests can revel in the unspoiled beauty of nature while enjoying exclusive access to the comforts of home, including a sauna, wood-fired hot tub, outdoor shower, braai (barbecue), and a lush garden.

The EcoTreehouse comfortably accommodates three people, with a main bedroom and a cosy built-in sofa bed in the living area. The kitchen, dining nook, lounge, and outdoor deck blend perfectly together, creating a perfect space to enjoy the farm's natural surroundings. The decor creates a cosy and rustic atmosphere, striking a balance between sophistication and simplicity. The property offers a range of extras for a truly enjoyable stay, including a double hammock, lilo, artist's easel, baby cot, and stroller.

The EcoTreehouse Setting

Located on the fringes of Marloth Nature Reserve, The EcoTreehouse offers panoramas of South Africa's majestic Langeberg Mountain range, where guests can wake up and soak up these incredible views right from their bed. The surrounding area is teeming with diverse wildlife, including various bird species and frogs creating an oasis for nature enthusiasts. Guests may also encounter the friendly horses that graze on the property, ducks enjoying the natural pond, and the delightful crowing of roosters.

At The EcoTreehouse, you can take a dip in the farm dam, unwind under the shade of trees, greet the horses in their paddock, or even book a trail ride. For the more active and adventurous, the property is encircled by dirt tracks, ideal for walking, mountain biking, or horse riding. The charming town of Swellendam, with its restaurants, shops, and market, is just a five-minute drive away, and nearby berry farms offer a taste of local delights.

  • Amazing hosts

    We had the most amazing time staying at the The EcoTreehouse. It was a blissful, quiet, and relaxing place to stay, very closely connected to nature. Even during bad weather, it was extremely cosy staying there. Johan and Jenni were amazing hosts and always had the best tips on the area. We would definitely stay with them again! review


  • A magical stay

    Absolutely amazing. Johan and Jenni are awesome, attentive, present hosts. The space was so well-thought out and you could feel and see the love that has gone into it. The sauna and hot tub are just magical. We travelled with our 12-month-old who loved the swings, the animals and the garden. We will definitely be back! review
