Sycamore Avenue Treehouses is a family business that started in 2000 and is now owned by Gary Els, of the next generation, who together with his team of hosts and staff will ensure that you enjoy the unique experience with us exploring your childhood fantasies!
Ever since Gary first saw Halley’s comet in 1986, he has been a keen amateur astronomer and member of the Astronomical Society of Southern Africa. Sycamore’s location is blessed with clear, dark skies, with fantastic view of the Milky Way. When he is at Sycamore – and skies permitting – guests can be treated to a guided tour of the night sky, accompanied by eye-popping views of planets and the cosmos through his large telescope.
Visit the Gallery page to view some of the stunning star panoramas, as well as surrounding berg vistas and sunsets photographed from Sycamore.
The day begins with a full English breakfast in our Dining Room.
In the evening, our chef will delight you with a delicious 3 course dinner being table d´hôte (table of the host) tradition.
Breakfast is a selection of yogurts, fruit and cereals to begin with.
We then serve a plated cooked course consisting of eggs prepared to your liking, sausages, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms and beans.
Alternatively, try an omelette. To top it off, enjoy some home-baked scones with your filter coffee, tea or fruit juice.
After this start, you should have plenty of energy to do some Meandering!
You will experience an array of meals during your stay.
Our resident Chef, conjures up the most delightful set meals, from starters to main courses, followed by mouth-watering desserts.
Starters include either a soup or salad of the day. Tomato, butternut and chicken soups can be expected.
For the main course you can anticipate the meat of the day being either pork chops/ribs, roast chicken, beef/chicken curry or mince bolognaise. This is accompanied by starch such as potatoes or rice and a variety of vegetables.
If you have room left, you can try to squeeze in the dessert of the day. This could be any of the many homemade delights: assorted puddings, malva pudding and milk tart.
We cater for Vegan, Vegetarian, Pescatarian and other ranges of dietary requirements.
Unfortunately, we are not a Halaal kitchen, but when needed we can arrange SANHA approved food.
