Welcome to Sunset View Guest House
        –   your home away from home   –

Sunset View Guest House is situated in the small rural town of Pigg's Peak in the Hhohho district of northwest Swaziland with breath-taking mountain views.

This well fenced, secure property is currently being developed in an eco-friendly way utilizing permaculture techniques, to leave as small a foot print on the earth's surface as possible. The residence and guest house use solar-heated water and rain water from the roof is captured in tanks for garden irrigation. Some grey water is treated for orchard irrigation while other grey water irrigates the banana and pawpaw circles. Chickens and guinea fowl roam free in the fenced, developing, orchard area. Large ponds are under construction to create an attractive environment for the more than 70 bird species found visiting this property.
