WHAT IF THERE'S ONLY TWO OF US? We try to keep Yondah affordable, so we offer a special rate during low season that's any time that's not school holidays or a long weekend in SA. At these times, you will only pay for the number of bedrooms/bathrooms you’ve booked. You'll still have exclusive use of the whole 300 acre property and full access throughout the house - we don’t like locked doors either - but this means that if you’re a couple, you'll simply choose the 1 Bedroom Rate. If you want to invite another couple to join you, then choose the 2 Bedroom Rate. Too easy
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Low Season Rate - Low Season is any time that is not a long weekend or school holidays in SA - 1 Bedroom Rate sleeps up to 2 guests in 1 x queen bedroom with ensuite from $300 per night, 2 Bedroom Rate sleeps up to 4 guests in 2 x queen bedrooms with ensuites from $380 per night, 3 Bedroom Rate sleeps up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms from $440 per night
