Huna House

A river-side cottage in a pecan-nut orchard with a fireplace, two baths, a wood fired hot-tub and a hanging daybed.
The Huna River House is a private two bedroom getaway on the edge of the Melody Hill estate, next to the Magalies River. The house has beautiful high ceilings, large windows, balconies and big sliding doors that open out onto the trees and country-side. With its large living room the house can be used for small workshops and individual retreats.
The house was designed and built using reclaimed materials, with beautiful wooden floors and expansive, industrial windows. The house is a super-comfortable get-away, with en-suite bedrooms, large baths and a wood-burning fire place. The fully equipped kitchen and the long covered verandah are well suited to providing amazing dining experiences.

    Our Location

    Our Surroundings

    MHR has a good 30-45 minute walk, up the koppie (nature preserve hill) just across the road. The well marked footpath takes you up to top of the hill looking out over the Magalies valley. At the bottom of the property is the Magalies riuver with a wide bank and beautiful big trees, perfect for strolling or picnicing.

    The beauty of the Magalies lies in its unique biome of indigenous plants, animals and trees. The transformation from Summer (tropical, luscious and green) to Winter (golden grass, bare trees giving way to long views and sunsets) makes it feel like there are 2 different versions of MHR - we can never seem to decide which we love more.

    Magaliesburg has a variety of activities and adventures, from hikes, cycling/running trails, game drives, balloon rides, historical sites, markets, restaurants and breweries.

    There is a decently stocked Super Spar (grocery store) in Magaliesburg town - 10 minutes away.
