My African experience in Rye

African themed room

Hilltonia homestead not only comprises of a luxury B&B but also 5 themed cottages that will transform you getaway experience into another world. I couldn’t go past the African theme cottage which looks like a shack form the outside when you first arrive but when you open the door you walk into 5 star luxury. To make your experience African style the couch and matching coffee table was made out of zebra print and sat on top of the tiger printed rug. Another tiger rug on the canopied king size bed and pictures of elephants and African carvings on the wall complete the décor for the room.

The one room cottage opens up to a decking overlooking the countryside to the sand dunes. The same view can be seen form the two double spa in the bathroom which is positioned right next to the window. But don’t worry no one can see in and the wooden giraffe animals are around the spa to keep a look out for you.

The room is so intriguing and different to any other place I have stayed that it will just draw you in and make you not want to leave. That is why my night was spent relaxing on the couch by the gas log fire with take away food. You wont even need to worry about breakfast in the morning because its gets delivered right to your doorstep. Included in the stay is a breakfast hamper full of eggs, bacon, toast, tomatoes, fruit, croissants, juice, coffee and tea.

At the back of Rye Hilltonia homestead is directly across the Peninsula Hot Springs and day spa , which offers massage and other pampering facilities. It is also a short drive from the main strip of shops in Rye to do some shopping, walk along the beach or have a coffee in one of the many café’s.
