Easy Weekends helps you to search for weekend getaways anywhere in South Africa, with an exact location in mind using Google Maps.
Zoom in on an area that interests you and see which guest houses, self-catering accommodation or hotels pops up. On the flip side, if you have no idea where you want to go for a weekend getaway, use the map to discover that little farm cottage, mountain lodge or beach house that you never knew existed. It’s also a great office time waster… Good times!
We can also filter the accommodation according to how much you want to spend, be it budget, luxury or somewhere in between. So if you click on the R 201 – R 500 button, it only shows you accommodation in that price bracket on the map.
It’s a great way to find those “off the beaten track” gems.
