She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. It’s our wedding anniversary next month and would soooo love to win this! Would have to go with Birdy – beautiful views!

  2. I just entered to win a night at Old Mac Daddy from Becoming You blog 🙂

    Was just enquiring about rates through reservations yesterday, so can’t believe that this deal came up 🙂
    We so desperately would love to win this as we have been wanting to go for the longest time ever!!!

    We would love to stay in either;
    Life before Colour,
    Give Bees a chance or
    Dirkie Sanchez – yip, we’d love to get our boxing on! Lol!

    Shared with Friends via Facebook, Liked (have been members of both Becoming you and Old Mac Daddy for some time)

    Love, love, love!!!! <3

    Holding fingers and toes and any other body part possible 😉

    Here's dreaming and wishing upon many, many, many, many stars 🙂

  3. This place has always been one of my top 10 things to do in Cape Town,

    And how fab is the “Yellow Submarine” especially since Yellow is my fave colour!

  4. Yellow submarine, give bees a chance or birdy.

    What a lovely competition! Shared on social media and holding thumbs.

  5. We stayed in Life before Colour the last time we were there and it was stunning – would love to return to the exact same one.

  6. LOVE Old Mac Daddy and have been dying to go for ages!!!! Have liked, shared, liked, shared, tweeted, posted, wished and hoped! (Couldnt possibly choose which caravan – they are allllllll amazing!!!)

  7. I just entered and would love a weekend away. The Yellow Submarine sounds like allot of fun and the idea of a periscope would be great for my kids….. and husband alike.

  8. Would love to be in the sweet little birdy or mills and boons. But being a new mom in need of an amazing break, any trailer would do!! Lol.

  9. aaah they are all so lovely! birdy is very cute though but they all look amazing!!! I would love to win this pleeeeeaaasse!

  10. I would love to be able to wake up and look out over the dam…and a little Birdy told me that trailer number 11 would be the perfect one for me 🙂 x

  11. Dig it and For better or for Boerewors look so cute, have shared on facebook… would love to spend some quality time with my husband <3

  12. Looks amazing, how relaxing does those hammocks look with the view of the lake. Crossing fingers.

  13. I love the “Life Before Colour” Trailer – so romantic! This would be the PERFECT prize to celebrate my 5 year anniversary! Holding thumbs!!! xxx

  14. It’s the love of my life’s 30th birthday next month. I am always so broke even though I work my “ass” off. This would just be the ultimate gift for him without me having to put my car up for sale. He is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet . . so the staff at Old Mac Daddy will love to have him visit 🙂 It’s a win win situation for everyone.

  15. I’d love to stay in Life Before Colour 🙂 but they are all super interesting and creative – love it!

  16. They all look so interesting – I like the “Life before colour”, “Birdy” and the “daddy’s villa” 🙂 . Shared on Facebook

  17. Dirkie Sanchez looks like sooooooooo much fun! I’d actually be happy with any of them- they all look AMAZING!

  18. I think I’d like to stay in Dig It or even Dirkie Sanchez, since I was definitely a Mexican mathematician in a former life!!!

  19. I would love to stay in Yellow Submarine…looks like such a laugh. But they all look incredible so I don’t mind leaving it to chance if, FINGERS CROSSED, I did happen to win. Good luck all!

  20. One of my fave places! Would love to take the kids back there!
    Liked and shared… I never win anything but this would be AWESOME!

  21. The Dream has the attention of both my eyes.. like Bambi in the headlights! shared on twitter and Facebook (but selfish me secretly wishes i didn’t have to share this wonderful “dream” so i can keep it all to myself) #Smeegal-MyPrecious



  22. Oh! Pick me, pick me, please! Waiting on the arrival of our long-awaited baby boy and couldn’t imagine a better ‘babymoon’ treat than a night in any one of the amazing Airstream trailers!

  23. This looks like the kind of place where my soul can just expand and expand! Speaks to me in a big way. Please let my partner and I come to experience a weekend of nature, love and meditation after 8 months apart from each other…. I LOVE “The dream”… Please give us a chance! Amazing, this is….!

  24. I would love to spend a night in Metalmorphosis.

    Looks like the perfect place to get away from it all

  25. Give Bees a Chance looks absolutely gorgeous – what could be better than gorgeous yellow for spring 🙂

  26. This is such an awesome competition! I have shared on Facebook and I am holding thumbs.

    Both THE DREAM & THE YELLOW SUBMARINE look amazing!!

  27. Ah, I couldn’t possibly pick just one! They all have something I want to experience! But, since you’ve asked, I love the red accents in the Mills & Boon trailer… This is SO my idea of the perfect camping trip! 😉

  28. Hi Kathryn

    I’ve shared this amazing competition on FB and although all the trailers look pretty awesome to me, if I had to choose I’d go with Birdie. It’s my birthday on the 23rd Sep and what an awesome present this would be! 🙂

  29. I shared the competition on Twitter, and am dreaming of life before colour.
    Here’s hoping and wishing!

  30. Would love to stay in the Love Cake..? Me too! trailer. I’m a keen baker and maybe this will inspire me to become even more daring. Holding thumbs!

  31. OH GOODNESS!!! Honestly…I love ALL OF THEM!!! Have always wanted to go! My favourite would probably be the YELLOW SUBMARINE because it is soooooo different!

  32. Oh my word! I was going through all the pics of the trailers, trying to find one that would be ideal for a romantic getaway, but then I stumbled upon ‘For Better or Boerewors’ and although it definitely isn’t to my taste, I KNOW that The Husband would absolutely LOVE this trailer. Must, must, MUST!

  33. Heard so much good stuff about this upmarket trailer park!! Wish I could experience it first hand! As s spring has sprung and the bees are buzzing, I’d love to try the birdie one!

  34. All the pictures just looks amazing! I would love any ‘trailer’. As long as I have a bed and a bathroom, I will be over the moon!!!
