This AA Recommended self catering / B&B accommodation is found in the quaint, unspoilt village of Machadodorp, situated just off the N4 Maputo Corridor, an easy two and a half hour drive from Gauteng. Thus Machadodorp is an easy-to-get-to, affordable weekend getaway for Gauteng families, friends and couples seeking quality time. Absolute Leisure Cottages is also an ideal halfway stop between the Cape and Kruger, and between OR Tambo Airport, Johannesburg and the Kruger Park, Swaziland and Mozambique.

Situated in the midst of the Mpumalanga Highlands Meander, the breath-taking mountains, rivers, gorges and grasslands present many opportunities for relaxation; fly fishing, hiking, horse rides, birding, mountain biking, rock climbing, abseiling, motor bike tours, local culture, scenic drives, historical exploration and more. The area is the perfect destination for both nature lovers and the adventurous at heart.

Absolute Leisure Cottages consists of two neighbouring properties in the village of Machadodorp. Machado House is a grand Victorian home named after Paul Kruger's raiway surveyor, General Joachim Machado. The house has been divided into three separate self contained units sleeping up to ten people in double bedrooms.

Units take their names from the history of Machadodorp: BaKoni, Geluk and EnTokozweni.

Machado House is elegantly furnished in the old Victorian style of the late 1800s, and each bathroom has both a legged bath and a shower for the convenience and comfort of our guests. The whole of Machado House can be booked for a group get together, and the locked doors separating units can be opened to make a 10 bed party venue.

Geluk - 2 sleeper
