The Property – Self Catering Three Star Grading

Set on 12 hectares of garden and forest at the heart of the Garden Route just minutes from Plettenberg Bay and Knysna, this delightful 3 Star Graded owner managed property welcomes guests seeking a restful getaway. The essence of Masescha is to experience a slower pace of life. Often the only accompaniment is the song of the birds and a gently whispering breeze. A majestic forest backdrop frames an atmosphere of calm, relaxation and restfulness creating an idyllic scene for outdoor enthusiasts, birdwatchers and nature lovers alike to enjoy a rejuvenating break away from the hubbub of everyday life. Masescha means “Hidden” or “Masked” – appropriately named, as we are nestled in a valley free of road noise


We offer a flexible variety of clean, fully equipped self-catering facilities, all with free Wi-fi, Breakfast and Light Meal/Snack options also available, set in an established garden to suit all budgets and Group sizes. Accommodation comprises garden rooms for two, cosy cottages or a large house for sole use all nestled throughout the garden.


  • Guests are also welcome to use our large swimming pool – enjoyable for either a cooling dip on hot days or for an energetic few lengths before breakfast.
  • A meander around the garden and dams leads you through just part of the property. Accommodation comprises garden rooms for two, cosy cottages or a large house for sole use all nestled throughout the garden.
  • Braai facilities


Whilst our accommodation is fully equipped for self-catering, breakfast options, a set menu dinner or light snack can be added as an optional extra pre-booked in advance.
