Shepstone Villa is perched in a natural forest above Leisure Bay on South Africa’s Kwazulu Natal South Coast. As an extension of the exclusive Shepstone Gardens venue in Johannesburg, the Villa is the ultimate coastal hideaway for international visitors, honeymoon couples or local holiday-makers. Visitors find the experience unforgettable. At 50 000 sqm, Shepstone Villa offers ample room for your mind to float free and for your tropical island fantasies to become a stylish, spacious reality.
The sheer volume, scale and luxury of this secluded villa are unimaginably beautiful as it spreads out across multi-tiered gardens and streams, cascading down to the warm ocean below.
For the casual gardener, there is the aesthetic beauty of taxonomically arranged and well-documented tropical plants — especially palms, cycads, flowering trees and shrubs and vines — showcased in both classic and natural landscape design by owners Christopher and Lorna Rayner. For the more serious plant enthusiast, these documented botanical specimens, which have been collected or cultivated since 2000, are a resource of world significance. Of special mention is the recently begun 3000 sqm Japanese-inspired indigenous South African garden with a 45m lake reflecting the brilliant African sky, Samango monkeys and exotic birds.
There are many activities in the area including golf, scuba diving, tennis, dolphin and whale watching, deep sea fishing, biking and hiking. The lodge is a mere 25 minutes from the Margate airport or 2 hours from the King Shaka (Durban) Airport.
