In 2004 the couple Ferdie and Polla Haefele purchased the 3.2 hectares of property located in the Lydenburg town, ideally visible to all visitors from the Dullstroom and Machadodorp road.
Their goal was to provide a convenient and luxurious stay for both visitors and motorcyclists, especially since Ferdie is an avid motorcyclist himself - the proud owner of a BMW 1100.
Ferdie was a qualified Technical teacher at the Lydenburg High School
He is also an accomplished architect and registered builder.
Ferdie planned and built the entire resort himself.
