Fortunately we have had good rains in our past summer and our provincial dams are in a much better state than 2 years ago.
By now it is well known that Cape Town has a need to look after its water supplies much better than we've done in the past. We still encourage our guests to use water wisely. That means every shower has 2 buckets beautifully tailored by our creative friend Sheena that can be used to flush your toilet or used for watering the garden.
We kindly ask our guests to still keep showers short and sweet ( 3 mins. showers are the 'international' norm nowadays) and in general understand our water-situation. In the Honeymoon suite and in the Silvermine Room the jacuzzi and bath can be used again.
Our pools are fully operational and we do have a 'borehole' in our garden that gives us 10.000 l. per day.
