Amongst the Trees is a  3 story -  open planned cottage,  suitable for singles, couples and families with children.  Access to the cottage is via a private path.


The cottage is situated 50 m away from the Botanical Gardens and 200 m from Emmarentia Dam. I have identified 125 different species of birds within 1 km of the cottage and the species count for Melville Koppies and the Botanical Gardens is over 250. One of our guests described our cottage as an "Oasis in the middle of Johannesburg"
