Weekend Greetings from The ‘Banana House’

From banana shed to ‘Banana House’:
Interior photo’s of our guest room. We refurbished the old banana shed into a guest room. Minimalist style with all essentials in it and with respect for the original century old plastering of the wall.
 
Guest have a view on a new landscaped water wise garden and there is secure parking. WiFi free available in (partly covered) communal courtyard.

Creating a garden

Every now and then we do an upmarket landscaping project with spin off from our garden. Clients are expected to actively participate in the work; just to get the ‘succulent feeling’. We love landscaping minimalism gardens.
