About Sky Lodge

Welcome to the Sky Lodge, a unique self catering stone lodge on the side of the mountain overlooking the Hartbeespoort Dam and surrounding Magaliesberg mountains.

On top of the hill we have the private Sunset Lodge (4 to 8 guests sharing), Blue Sky Lodge (4 - 18 guests sharing) and Red Sky Lodge (8 - 14 guests sharing), each with private pool decks and boma overlooking the valley. For larger groups of 20 guests or more we recommend booking both the Blue Sky Lodge and Sunset Lodge as these two lodges are closest together.

Lower down the valley we have the private Stone Lodge which can sleep 4 - 8 guests also with private pool and boma. This is the original homestead on the farm and has lots of character.

For smaller groups we have the two bedroom 4 sleeper Butterfly cottage with spa bath and Wild Monkey Tree cottage with Victorian bath.

For 2 guests the best options are the one bedroom Valley cottage or studio Stone Suites, both with spa baths.

We have something for everyone!

Units are serviced daily except Sundays and Public Holidays.

The 4 Private Lodges have the DSTV Hotel Bouquet Package including MNet, certain movie channels and sport channels (including Supersport1). The smaller cottages have a dish but you need to please bring your own decoder. We have 2 x spare DSTV Hotel package decoders that you are also able to rent at R 200 per weekend (subject to availability so please advise us early to avoid disappointment).

Even though the lodge is located in a remote bush area, it is still considered good practice to promote social distancing. To promote further privacy and social distancing, units are only serviced when the guest has vacated the unit. Guest's may also request that housekeeping does not service a requested unit. The reception area / tuck shop will be closed during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) period and credit card payments will not be taken. Our staff is still on hand to assist where necessary.

Golf: We are popular with golfing groups due to our close proximity to 4 courses within 15 kilometres - Pecanwood Estate, Magalies Park, Sandy Lane and Seasons Eco Estate.

Family friendly: The larger private lodges are suitable for family gatherings and reunions.

Romantic: The Stone Suites are perfect for romantic getaways. Our views will melt her heart!!

Covid Safety Approved: We pledge to implement a high standard of hygiene and cleaning protocols to ensure the safest environment possible for our guests. We adhere to the industry safety protocols set out by the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA).

Day visitors or unbooked guests above the number of guests booked into the particular cottage will not be granted access to the lodge.
• On check in the main guest will be required to provide the names of all guests in the group. Unidentified guests will not be granted access to the lodge.
• No loud noise or music that can be heard by other guests please. We would rather have multiple happy guests that enjoy the peace and quiet of the bush instead of one guest that disturbs everybody. If you are planning a noisy gathering or party then we are NOT the right place for you. Should noise continue we reserve the right to switch off the power to the cottage and in extreme cases we reserve the right to evict the disturbing guest without refund of deposits. If it becomes necessary for the lodge to call out the security duty manager to deal with unruly guests then the guest agrees that a fee of R 1,000 will be charged to the guest’s credit card.
• Bachelor parties are not permitted.
• Sorry pets are not allowed.

• Please no damages or theft of lodge items (including towels and cutlery). The guest agrees that damages and missing items will be charged for at double the market price due to us being far from shops to replace missing items.
• The lodge is situated on a mountain, therefore there is a 3km dirt farm road from the main road to the lodge gate. The road is fine for a regular sedan or smaller car and a 4x4 is not required. We don't recommend that you use a sports car or car with very low suspension or tyres as it is a dirt road.

                              Great place to stay, it was my 2nd time going there. The place needs a bit of cleaning but overall we had a great experience.

                              Could you kindly work on getting Wifi for your guests, and then the number put on google/invoice for the establishment just rings so I was unable to contact anyone there to find out if I could check-in earlier to avoid the heavy rains
