Akasha Mountain Retreat is a picturesque Cape-Maroc style villa where just one group is hosted at a time. This serene, private setting offers spectacular panoramic views over the Langeberg and secluded Duiwenhoks Dam.
Situated just 12km north of Heidelberg & the N2 - a most quiet off-grid location in which to ‘disconnect from digital & reconnect with nature.’
Your host lives 500m from the villa and is on call 24/7.

Welcome To Akasha

The villa consists of a 3-bedroom / 2-bathroom house (fully equipped for self-catering) and a stand-alone suite as the 4th bedroom, with en-suite bathroom.  By prior arrangement, breakfasts can be served and Delish meals can be delivered.  Free grocery delivery service every 2nd day. Good cellphone reception at the villa. A workspace with Wi-Fi is available in a private cottage 500m away.  The villa is solar-powered, with a standby generator.  Pet friendly. Braai facilities, firewood included.  Outdoor activities include hikes, horse encounters, birdwatching, stargazing.  Bring your own swimming towels & mountain bikes.  Marimbas & drums are provided.  Live instrumental guitar music on request.
Day trips within a 70km radius are tailored to guests’ interests and interweave local history, myths & legends with the best that Eden Country has to offer.

One word – magic! I’ve had the privilege of reviewing some beautiful spaces and this is right up there with the best… at times we felt we were back in Morocco. This is a truly special spot & we just can’t wait to get back.”

The house is absolutely beautiful, not to mention the breathtaking view. It was such a blessing to be here and experience the beauty of nature. Thank you for all your hospitality and making us feel so welcomed, we’ll definitely be back soon!

Highlights include viewing the splendour of the overflowing dam, waking up to the sound of horses trotting outside the window and the sheer unspoilt beauty & serenity.

We were greeted by the most spectacular view and most wonderful host. Our hike with Chris was truly something special, where we were able to appreciate the beauty of nature up close. This place is like a massage for my soul! We will definitely be back, and then for a few days longer, because we can’t get enough of this place of ultimate relaxation.
