Cayley Mountain Resort

Cayley Mountain Resort is located in the Central Drakensberg, overlooking the Cathkin Peak and Champagne Castle ranges. The Bell Park Lake lies stretched out in front of the development offering breathtaking views from the comfort of your unit. It is here where you wake up to craggy mountainscapes coloured with green, blue and orange hues during the warm summer months. In the wintertime the blue mountains meet the oat coloured landscape and misty clouds descend, often treating guests to soft snowfall.

Think time spent with loved ones around a warm fire, enjoying good wine. At Cayley Mountain Resort you come home to a place where you can recharge and create long lasting holiday memories with your loved ones.

Ama Casa Cottages

Magical cottage in the heart of the Drakensburg. Sensational experience.

Reviewed By Lstar7

The best self catering accommodation I have ever booked online! Dave and Les (the hosts) have put tremendous thought and work into this incredible property. A well equipped self catering cottage, with a fire place, renovated bathrooms, outdoor shower and the most sensational hot tub and braai area (very private for each unit) with the best view of the Drakensburg mountains and hillside. The property has access to a beautiful trail for walking, multiple areas with gorgeous flowers and plants and a lake for fishing too. Although well situated for activities, after visiting the area, Ama Casa has the best view and everything else you need for a relaxing, tranquil and rejuvenating stay.
