Situated in the heart of the Garden Route, Moon Shine on Whiskey Creek encompasses 14 hectares of unspoiled indigenous forest. With great respect to the environment the owners have created four magnificently handcrafted wooden cabins on stilts, set in the indigenous forest, as well as a garden cottage which looks out towards the mountains and forests.
Sitting on the private deck of your cabin there's a good chance you will spot the elusive Knysna Loerie, Vervet Monkeys and if you're very lucky a bushbuck or a bushpig. Each holiday cabin is fully equipped for self-catering. In addition, the owners have added a small menu of home-cooked frozen meals for you to prepare and enjoy in your cabin. Their 'breakfast-in-a-bag' menu offers a choice of home-bakes, farm-fresh free-range eggs, bacon, home-made jam and complimentary tea or coffee, ordered and delivered the evening before.
10 minutes from the world's largest free flight bird sanctuary, Monkeyland Primate Reserve, The Elephant sanctuary, Wild Cat Sanctuary, unspoiled beaches and fine restaurants and golf courses (nearest one 10km). Moon Shine on Whiskey Creek has its own marvellous range of activities. There is a swimming pool on site where you can take a day off from Garden route sightseeing. There is also a childrens play area. A walk down to our mountain pool is a must and there are lots of opportunities for birdwatching here. Venture a little further afield, and the whole Garden Route will open up before you - national parks, beautiful coastline, whale watching, beaches, great restaurants, wine tasting; you name it, you'll find it on the garden route! We are close to the World's Highest Bungy. There are also a few boutique wine farms in our area now, offering wine tasting and lunches.

Firefly and Bushpig forest cabins were created for 2, but can sleep up to four people on a queen sized bed and double sleeper couch. The cabin has a Queen Ann fireplace and a fully equipped kitchenette.

Both have a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious living area with open fireplace and French doors. Stay in Vervet or Butterfly if only to experience the fabulous showers with glass bottles in the walls finished in creative mosaic. Butterfly garden cottage is quaint and full of character; it has two interleading bedrooms (sleeps up to 5), a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and dressing room. All fully equipped for self catering.
In Firefly and Bushpig, two sets of double French doors lead from an open plan interior onto the elevated deck surrounded by indigenous forest. In Treefrog, a unique approach via a wooden walkway leads you to a wrap-around deck on two sides. The cabin is elevated high amongst the trees offering magical views of the forest and its creatures. Vervet is the latest and final addition to the forest cabins. It is spacious for a family and boasts the finest shower on the Garden Route. Butterfly cottage is set in its own garden and boasts the finest views on the property and a wide veranda from which to enjoy them. There is a BBQ area, treetop forest jacuzzi, and a short hike away a natural mountain pool.
There's a sparkling swimming pool for you to enjoy, a fabulous playground for the kids and a three-quarter hour hike takes you to a beautiful natural mountain pool - a magical place to swim and picnic. The new Tree Top Forest Jacuzzi Spa recently opened. Guests get to enjoy private use of this beautiful space for one hour a day / night complementary - we're happy to share our paradise with you. And best of all, there is NO television to distract you! Moon Shine is not only a place to stay close to all the wonderful attractions of the Garden Route but a place to be when you're not sightseeing or beaching or fishing... A holiday in a cabin is a great setting for "free range" children and grown-ups! Each private cabin has its own braai / barbeque area, bathroom with shower, toilet and basin, linen and towels, and parking spot. Cabins are cleaned before and after occupation and every 7th day of stay.
