Masescha Country Estate 

Masescha Country Estate

Masescha means Hidden or Masked – appropriately named, as we are nestled in a valley free of road noise.

The essence of Masescha is to experience a slower pace of life. Our majestic forest backdrop frames an atmosphere of calm, relaxation and restfulness creating an idyllic scene for a rejuvenating break away from the hubbub of everyday life, where often the only accompaniment is the song of the birds and a gently whispering breeze. We offer a flexible variety of clean, fully equipped self-catering facilities within an established garden setting to suit all budgets, all with Free Wi-fi internet access.

We are located at Harkerville only 10 minutes drive from Plettenberg Bay and 15 minutes drive from Knysna in the Riviera of Southern Africa. Here in the heart of the Garden Route we are a convenient base to explore the many tourist attractions, activities, restaurants and beaches in this world-renowned area.

Come and experience our real haven of tranquility!


Our guest cottages are well separated throughout the garden, each having their own individual character and have been renovated to provide all the conveniences of your own home. All accommodation is regularly serviced and each fully equipped for self-catering. The kitchens are stocked with crockery, cutlery, glassware, utensils, pots and pans, and the bedrooms and bathrooms have already been prepared with linen, towels and toiletries. A welcome selection of tea and coffee are provided on arrival. Each unit also has its own private outdoor brick built braai (barbecue) facility. During the winter period blankets, hot water bottles and heaters are provided and during the summer fans are available for use. Free Wi-fi internet access is available.

For those lazy days, a scrumptious full English breakfast may be served on our main deck terrace overlooking the views (weather permitting) and a home cooked set menu dinner may also be available (catering options on request and must be pre-booked in advance).
