Moringa Cottage

Tropical Villa with Sunset view, sleeps up to 4

Moringa is our newest premium accommodation offering 2 separate studio apartments in a concrete and hardwood 2 story building. Each apartment offers a king sized bed with large mosquito net, bathroom, seating area and kitchen. The downstairs apartment has a spare single bed, and a larger kitchen, as well as an outdoor shower. The upstairs apartment has a smaller kitchen but an additional veranda with sunset view.


The kitchens are equipped with an under counter fridge, gas or electric cook top, toaster oven, hot water kettle and french press. Floors are tiled throughout. Tall ceilings and concrete walls help to cool the building. Both bedrooms, through open to the tropical breeze, can be securely locked. There is solar hot water in the kitchen and bathroom,  and wifi throughout both apartments with a signal repeater system.

The apartments can be booked separately or together. For families with older children, or friends and couples traveling together, Moringa offer more comfort and separation than our original two and 3 bedroom cottages built in the early 90’s (Almond and Banyan). However, for families with young children, or couples wanting more privacy, our other cottages are more suitable. Overall, in terms of architecture, amenities and decor, Moringa cottage is a favorite among our guests!

The story of Moringa

Moringa is our newest and grandest addition. Like all our vacation rentals, it was designed and built by owner, architect and interior designer Uta herself, with a small crew. Because it was a bigger and more costly project, it took several years and various helping hands to complete.

We decided to use mostly concrete and sustainably sourced hardwood (some of it reclaimed as well), to ensure durability and ease of maintenance.

The end result is a very elegant, tropical yet modern structure, offering perhaps the greatest comfort and enjoyment to our guests.

One of the best features of Moringa is the view from the top apartment, which overlooks the historic grounds to the East, and the sunset to the West.
