McGregor Accommodation Photography
McGregor accommodation offers something for everyone. From cute, cozy and rustic to luxurious five star. The lovely Mira from McGregor Country Getaways commissioned us to photograph three of the cottages and homes that form part of the multitude of establishments that she manages.
How lovely to have the wonderful opportunity of heading out to the countryside to do these shoots. There is a certain kind of magic in McGregor. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but get in touch with Mira, spend a few days here, and I promise, you will feel it too!
The first in the series of McGregor accommodation photography shoots was Bougainvillea Cottage. This cottage holds fond memories for me as I used to visit a good friend who used to live here. I kind of felt at home photographing this adorable garden cottage.
What I really love about this cottage, is that no matter which room you find yourself in, when you open up the custom made interior wooden window shutters, you are greeted with the greenest of views. It feels as if the outside has come in. I loved the random visits from guinea fowl and peacocks too. The best place for morning coffee or late afternoon sundowners, is out in the garden. It’s very peaceful. Should you get to visit in the summer heat, there is a sparkling pool in which to cool down.
I love the traditional “lei water” system that is still in operation. You literally get to enjoy the sound of your own personal water feature!
The kitchen is well equipped and tea, coffee and rusks are provided. The bathroom has a loo with a view and a lovely big open shower. The bedroom is gorgeous with a brass double bed. There is nothing better than throwing open the shutters in the early morning and letting in the fresh country air while you pop back into bed with a good book and a cup of coffee.
The lounge and dining area is spacious with a lovely fireplace for cozy winter evenings.
