Nestled on a small farm in beautiful Magaliesburg, only an hour away from Johannesburg and Pretoria, The Lazy Lapa offers a true, self-catering farm experience.

The house, which is semi-detached from the main house, offers unique and quirky antique furnishings and decor.

A home-away-from-home. We have a small farm dam ideal for cooling down, sipping cocktails or listening to the nature around you. Nearby resorts welcome day visitors where you can swim laps and dive abundantly.

The space
The uniquely decorated open-plan house offers:
• A main bedroom, with double bed, wardrobe and desk, with big barn doors for privacy.
• Three single beds in the open-plan lounge/ dining area.
• Down one step, a passage leads to the three bathrooms, one with a bath, one with toilet and washbasin, and the other with a shower. Bath towels are provided.
• The kitchen is fully-equipped with a large fridge, a microwave, 2-plate gas stove, 2-plate electric stove with rotisserie, electric wok, toaster, and a tea and coffee station.
• The dining area contains a 6-seater dining table and chairs.
• The lounge area features a quaint wood-burning stove.
• There is a TV that plays DVDs (large selection of dvds also provided). There is no DSTV.

The outside area offers:
• The spacious outdoor thatched lapa features a long rustic table that seats 12, and comfy sofas that seat 8.
• Bar fridge and food warmer provided.
• A small lovely farm dam (2.5 x 2m) ideal for sipping cocktails or listening to the sounds of the surrounding nature.
• In addition, there is a large braai/barbeque area with adult as well as kiddies seating.
• The hosts live on the premises, privacy for our guests is ensured, and you have exclusive use of the yard and dam area. The only things shared are the main entrance gate, the carport and the rooster, chickens, and tortoises.

I love entertaining and attention to detail. I do quite a bit of art and crafts, my favorite is bookfolding, examples are also on display at our airbnb. Mosaics are fun too, come see for yourself!! Whilst there is a gravel road of approximately 600m, and is shorter than many other farmstays in the area,it can be negotiated slowly with a small car. We use a small kia picanto which is normally loaded to the roof with supplies.
