Beside the lovely house our garden contributes to the special atmosphere of Little Paradise. About 3000 sqm offer sufficient place for breathing and relaxing. A feeling of boundless freedom appears, especially close by to our fountain or to the protea-pavillon.
Except a few rose bushes the whole garden is planted with typical flowers and bushes from the Cape and South Africa. And of course, you’ll also find the well known pincushin proteas and many other acquaintances from your excursions through the nature reserves close by.
It does not matter in which season you’ll stroll around the garden: Some of our plants definitely will be in bossom.
And these blossoms attract innumerable bird kinds. From the small Sunbirds up to the Ibis and the Egyptian goose we have numerous visitors in our garden.
There is also a herb garden close to your kitchen and some lemon trees in the garden. Please feel free to help yourselves.
The area around the pool is naturally one of the most popular whereabouts in our garden. Enjoy the view to the mountain-chain form Chapman’s Peak and Silvermine. The pool itself is almost 12 m long and 6 m wide and offers the possibility, not only to refresh, but also to swim. Relax on our sun beds or at the garden table under the shading. A lilac kind sends a pleasant fragrance and the numerous birds which are lured from the blossoms of the bushes and shrubs offer a welcome diversion. And in the evening you’ll have a braai while enjoying one of the most impressive sunsets ...
Our herb garden is a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast. Framed by palms, close to the kitchen and the espresso machine and warmed by the first sunbeams to come just over the mountains. And if you wake up some hours later and the the sun stands higher, you’ll enjoy the beautiful shadow from our large and colourful Bouganville. In the herb bed in front of the kitchen you’ll find numerous fresh herbs with which you can refine your foods.
Enjoy a cup of tea in the pavilion and gaze at the blossom sea around around you. The colorful pincushin proteas which attract the sunbirds are special attraction in this part of the garden. And if you would like a lemon for your tea: Our lemon trees are also part of this section. The large pond is home of some froggs and colourful water lilies. The gentle splashing of the water relaxes wonderfully.
Little Paradise is an ideal destination for families with children. Your small ones will have special fun at the pool and on our playground with slide, swing, sand pit, play house, monkey bars and trampoline. And in our two walkin cages they come close to our rabbits and guinea pigs. Watching our neighbours horses from our small observing place is especially for girls great fun.
