The boutique guest house
with a little extra Mama Mia.

Welcome to Casa di Cattleya, your award-winning place of rest, revitalisation and the North Coast’s warmest hospitality. A boutique guest house that is one part understated luxury and one part ‘La Dolce Vita’, Casa di Cattleya offers simplicity, serenity and a breathtaking setting that’s a cut above.

Each of the five rooms has its own design ethos and overnight experience. At Casa di Cattleya, we understand that true comfort is in the details, from the pristine percale cotton sheets to the subtle touches, like our hand-selected scents and toiletries, that come standard.

Leave feeling enriched

From the deck, the tangle of subtropical greenery before you gives way to sublime sea views in both directions. Zinkwazi offers endless coastline and wild spaces to explore, or you can simply while away the hours around the pool as afternoons drift into the easy rhythm of evening.

Italian fare extraordinaire, made personally by Maree.
Mi casa su casa means you always feel at home.
Masseuse, microlighting or both? You set the pace.


Maree’s breakfasts were awesome and her and Alfie are the hardest working and best hosts. Will definitely be going back. Highly recommended for a lovely coastal getaway in a quiet and peaceful setting.

An outstanding ‘secret’ on the north coast. Upmarket but affordable, a five-star place to relax and be spolit. Excellent food and facilities in a quiet and serene town. A wonderful place to escape to and find yourself again.

Lesleys, July 2018

The guest house was amazing, the beds were comfortable and the hosts were amazing to us. I am already referring my friends to visit the guest house for holidays. The service was absolutely amazing. I felt like I was home.
