Illuketia is a secluded haven of colourful flowerbeds, undulating lawns, mazy paths and tranquil waterways, a botanical wonderland that attracts over 150 species of birds. This is where its true attraction lies. The main plantation bungalow sits on at the top of sloping gardens and courtywards and verandahs, comfy sofas, wicker chairs and ornate wall hangings. This elegant villa houses four suites. A stroll down the gardens is the Pond House, an escapist spot with exclusive views of a large lily-pond loved by wildlife. Illuketia can be rented exclusively or by the suite.
Illuketia is the sister property of Apa Villa set on the picturesque beaches of Thalpe just five kilometres away. The two properties are owned by Hans Hofer, founder of the Apa Guides - later to become famous as the Insight Travel Guides.
