Planning a long Eastern Weekend in the Overberg?

Well ….. There is this guest room at Studio98 along the main road in Napier. The guest room is known at the Banana House and has its own secluded and safe parking in the back. The Banana House is separated from the main house by a courtyard with splash pool; it sleeps 2 and is minimalistic decorated. But what’s more?

An impression:

Napier Mountain

One of the numerous places off the beaten track in South Africa: Napier Mountain with its magnificent views that even on a hazy day (when the pictures were shot) reach 50 kilometer and further (with a 300mm lens). Imagine seeing 10,000 square kilometer below your toes while making a turn of 360 degrees. That includes the Southernmost tip of the African Continent and places like Elim, Struisbaai, Caledon and Arniston. And at the foothills in the valley is Napier. Another ‘attraction’ in the mountain is a walk to the Bat Cave. It’s a moderate hike but watch out for the bee swarms once you enter the cave.
