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.

MacFarlanes Country Retreat

Self Catering in Harrismith

..Set on the banks of a large lake and surrounded by beautiful countryside in the Harrismith District, Macfarlanes offers self catering accommodation for up to 14 guests. Two downstairs bedrooms and two upper deck bedrooms all have beautiful views. There is a cosy lounge area with fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen with a huge antique dining table brought out by the garrison that was stationed in Harrismith after the Boer War. It is an ideal opportunity for de-stressing in utmost tranquillity and peace, and the renewal of family ties that will forever be fondly remembered. The picturesque setting of this self catering accommodation outside Harrismith allows for idyllic days of birding (120 species), bass fishing and canoeing. It also offers imaginative opportunities for mountain biking and long walks and climbs, and the discovery of some small game sighting gems. The latter abounds on the farm. An otter family splashing in the water, mountain reedbuck wandering down to water occasionally and fish eagles calling reminds one why Africa is so special. Whilst the hunting and mating calls of jackal, and the nocturnal sounds of birds make the campfire (traditional lapa) experience under our stunningly clear sky unforgettable. The large man made lake provides for several recreational options. No charge for either fishing or the use of canoes, but please bring own life jackets. A proper bass-dinghy powered by battery can be hired on site. Macfarlanes self catering accommodation is situated 37 kilometres from Harrismith via the R74 and is an ideal getaway for a large family gathering or group of friends.
