Self-Catering Forest Cabins & Garden Cottage

Moon Shine on Whiskey Creek is an enchanting Self-Catering retreat ideally situated in The Crags near Plettenberg Bay.

Accommodation consists of wooden Forest Cabins nestled among the trees, also a spacious Garden Cottage. From mosaic showers in select rooms to other unique features, close attention has been paid to every detail ensuring guests enjoy a most memorable stay.

Moon Shine on Whiskey Creek is the perfect secluded, romantic getaway for couples, also great for families with children or a group of friends. Communal facilities include a children’s playground with swings and jungle gym as well as a sparkling swimming pool. A 45 minute walk leads to a natural mountain pool, not to be missed.

Free Wifi is available in all the cottages and at the beautifully situated Internet and Info Zone.
