This deceptively spacious holiday home tucked away in a patch of coastal Jungle is just a stone's throw from the beach and the perfect pad to unwind and relax in between beach expeditions up and down the vibrant and breath-taking shoreline. Nestled in a valley of green, the modest and pleasant 6 Magai is a perfect place to wake up during the holidays, find a sunny spot for a midday nap and to end the day around the fire, or watching a signature Nkwazi moonrise.
This is me pictured with my husband, actor/writer/musician, Vaneshran and our 15 month old son, Nuan, at the enchanted Rose Garden of Ooty, Tamil Nadu, during our last visit to India. I am a Fair Trade analyst, specializing in Cocoa, as well as an accredited Iyengar Yoga Instructor. Our home is called Kailasa, after the mountain residence of Hindu deity Shiva, and we try to live according to the ancient principles of Yoga, that is, the 'union' of all things, whether in embracing all in spiritual matters or bringing people together socially or creatively, or the way we eat and prepare food. Moderation is also our motto. We are artists at heart, and our home reflects our lives and philosophy, full of character, stories (past and present) and art. In the heart of the city, with Table Mountain in full view to the south and a splendid view of Woodstock and the old Castle brewery to the north, we have created a creative haven for family, friends and like minds, living to the beats of their own music and finding time to make harmonies as often as possible, whether in work or play or simply relaxing at home.
