Description from owner


In the heart of the beautiful Garden Route in Plettenberg Bay, Hillcrest Lodge Tents are pleased to offer you our very own unique lodge tent named Sandstone. Simply and stylishly furnished it offers a you wonderfully rustic alternative to the usual accommodation options, and the perfect haven in which to relax and unwind.

Our unique accommodation is perfect for singles, couples or families. The tent offers it's own deck overlooking the enchanting Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains, large living/sleeping area, luxury bathroom and, for a true South African bush feel, boasts it's own outdoor shower – the perfect place to start, refresh or end your day. We hope to deliver to you a taste of nature combined with modern amenities so as to create an amazing and unique experience for your trip to Plettenberg Bay.

The tent is raised from the ground, and offers it's own deck, kingsize bed, luxurious bathroom leading to it's own fully lit outdoor shower. It is simply and stylishly furnished, and has tea and coffee making facilities and a small fridge. As this is a family tent, bunk beds or two single beds are available - please let us know if required when booking.

Due to the materials involved in the structures, (canvas and wood), we do have a strict no smoking policy, however you are able to smoke at the braai/firepit area.

Please note that we do not clean or turn down each morning whilst you are in residence. If you would like to include this option, an additional fee will occur. Please let us know when booking.

In order to take full advantage of the rustic and peaceful environment of the tents, please note that there is no Wi-Fi or television in the tent.

You will note that our property is directly adjacent to the local aerodrome, and therefore there is the occasional sky-diving plane and aircraft which take off and land. However, there are no night flights. During peak holiday times, there may be more frequent aircraft traffic and the occasional early flight.

This tent is a brand new structure, and as such the landscape is continuing to be a work in progress. Since the fires in June 2017, we are hoping that the natural regeneration of the indigenous wildlife will take it's form and provide the area with natural and beautiful scenery upon which to look at from your deck.

PLETT RAGE - Please note that letting conditions for this tent will differ if booking for Plett Rage. Please contact Paul for further information.
