Botha House – Timeless Sophistication Since 1920

Botha House is a luxury guesthouse situated on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast in South Africa. Originally built for the first Prime Minister of the country in 1920, this homestead today welcomes guests from all over the world to enjoy the ambience and opulence of an era gone by. It is, and always will remain, the iconic legacy of a man revered as one of the Anglo-Boer Wars most influential Generals. In a simple request made by General Louis Botha on his visit to the Umdoni Park, Sir Frank Reynolds, the owner and builder of this house, notes in his diary: "General Botha has requested a small tract of land upon which he can build his beloved wife Annie a beach cottage." Tragically, after only 3 months of building, news came of the General's passing, his eyes never falling upon the house he so desired. Throughout it's history however, Botha House has played host to past Prime Ministers, Presidents and Statesmen alike. Located within the Umdoni Park coastal reserve, all visitors can enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the natural coastal forest. Hiking and bird watching trails wind their way through the 220-hectare reserve, offering fantastic up-close-and-personal experiences with the indigenous fauna and flora. Also home to the Umdoni Park Golf Course, a true test of your golfing skills, be sure, when booking your next holiday to the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, that you come and visit the place where history and true relaxation meet. http://www.bothahouse.co.za
