Elizabeth retired from her family business in Wellington (Mischa Wine Estate) to establish Eventide Lodge on the Bitou river. Her dream of being close to the beach and still maintaining a tranquil farm lifestyle came true. Her passion is now to share her dream with you along with her 6 dogs (5 of them rescues). For more about the Lodge please browse the Rooms, Facilities and Attractions pages.
