If your loft is anything like mine it’s a dark and dusty dumping ground for old junk. Caroline’s loft, I can enviously assure you, is NOTHING like mine. It’s enormous. Walls are whitewashed and go up forever, floors are tiled to keep it cool in summer and there’s a lengthy, decked verandah, of which more later. Actually no, I can’t wait. The verandah is great, accessed from both the living- and bedrooms it peaks through the trees and across the city from its hill-top look-out. The stunning view stretches right up through the Umgeni Valley and gorge, which transforms into a starry, bright-lit cityscape by night. Back inside, the bedroom is cavernous and calming with (besides a bed of course) caramel armchairs and a beautiful old writing desk. The living area too is dotted with mahogany antiques and separated from the kitchen by a breakfast bar. For the chef, there’s all the cooking kit you need and Caroline will supply the essentials to get you started. This is a great base from which to explore KZN. The Drakensberg mountains are a few hours inland, the game reserves a short drive up the coast and there are excellent beaches and golf courses.
