Neighbourhood

Hilton is the gateway to the beautiful Midlands Meander. Our home is 10 minutes car drive to the Centre of the village which has numerous coffee shops, restaurants and grocery shops. The Meander extends from Hilton to just before the majestic Drakensberg Mountain Range. Along the way, you can experience culinary delights in Nottingham Road, canopy tours at the Karkloof Reserve, hiking, spa’s and many other unique experiences! Our home is set inside a 1700 ha nature reserve with incredible bird and wildlife. You can hike, mountain bike, trail run from our front door. There are 3 swimming pools (including a heated 50m pool), tennis courts, squash courts, hockey Astro and a gym. We have all the sporting equipment you will need so no need to bring anything with you! Our home is contemporary farmhouse and has every modern convenience at your fingertips, including an abundance of toys and kiddies bikes and scooters. Hilton is only 60 minutes from Durban and the East Coast beaches of South Africa and 2 hours from the Drakensberg Mountains. The nearest Big Five Safari Park is 2.5 hours from our door. We look forward to showing you the beauty of South Africa

Getting to my home

The closest airport is in Pietermaritzburg which is a 25 minute drive. You will need a car in South Africa as there is no reliable public transport here. We could possibly assist with a car depending on the details of the exchange. King Shaka Airport near Durban is 2 hours away or Johannesburg is a 4 hour drive from us if you would prefer a road trip.

Getting around

Ther is no reliable public transport so we strongly suggest hiring or borrowing a car.

Sarah

We are an active, adventure-loving family of four- my husband and I adore the mountains and the sea, our little boy of 8 loves anything to do with bikes and balls and our 5 year old daughter enjoys every adventure. We want to introduce our children to the world- people, cultures, scenery, experiences- that can enrich their lives and fill their memory banks. We live in the exquisite region of the Midlands in South Africa. Both my husband and I travelled extensively and lived overseas (Canada, UK, Dubai, Grand Cayman and Argentina) for many years before settling down and having children. Rowan runs an engineering business and I am a marketing professional. We chose the town of Hilton as it is the gateway to the Midlands and is a beautiful little village, very family friendly and surrounded by forests and nature. We are also only 1-2 hours from all the beaches (warm seas all year round), 2 hours from some of the best safari parks (Big 5 Game viewing) and 2 hours from our majestic Drakensberg mountain range. We have a holiday home in one of the most unspoilt beach towns along the KZN coastline called Southbroom and we would be happy for you to use it whilst you visit SA. We cannot wait to pass on the gift of travel to our children and we look forward to seeing them experience new countries and immerse themselves in new cultures!
