Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.

Wishbone Waters Self Catering Accommodation In The Crags

Wishbone Waters is located 2.5km from the N2 in the rural farming area of The Crags, between Plettenberg Bay and Nature's Valley. Birdlife is prolific, and there are lots of possibilities for walking and cycling in the local and greater region, to access stunning fynbos and forest areas. Many of the local farms are affiliated to the Redford Conservancy, and ascribe to recommended nature conservation principles.

Self-Catering Accommodation

The Cottage (sleeps 4) is set in a fynbos and garden area of the farm, with an uninterrupted view of Peak Formosa and the Tsitsikamma mountains. It has 2 comfortable bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with twin beds. The living and dining area opens to a patio. There is a fully equipped kitchen, and an outside barbecue. The bathroom has a bath and shower, with a separate toilet. There is a perimeter fence at the cottage, and a well-controlled pet is welcome by arrangement.

The Farmhouse (sleeps 8 comfortably) has an equally stunning view of the mountains. It is on a part of the farm that has cattle camps used for grazing and for growth of feedcrops. Approximately 4 hectares of land around the farmhouse is sectioned off and has groves of indigenous trees and plants - the area around the house itself is kept mowed with some indigenous garden. Eight guests can be accommodated in the 4 bedrooms, and one more guest can be accommodated on the sleeper couch. There are 3 bathrooms. The large living and dining area opens to an outside patio that has fine views of the Tsitsikamma mountains and Peak Formosa. The main bedroom is downstairs, with an ensuite bathroom. There is another bathroom (shower and toilet) off to the side of the kitchen. There are three twin bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, as well as another small and quiet living room. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering, and there is an outside barbecue area with picnic table.

  • A swimming-pool and spacious pavilion near the main farmhouse are available for guest use.
  • Regular servicing is included, usually 3x per week. Extra servicing can be arranged.
  • Sheets and towels are changed every 4 days within longer stays.
  • Personal washing and ironing can be done by arrangement within longer stays.
  • Beach towels can be supplied.

Deep-sea fishing and whale-watching excursions are also available. Knysna is about 45 minutes drive from The Crags, as is Stormsriver with its adventure attractions - the Canopy Tour, Blackwater Tubing, etc.
