Wildflower Lodge is dear to the owners, Gert & Melanie Alberts’, hearts. With love and patience, they have transformed an old house into a luxury villa with lots of modern features for holiday stay-overs as well as business presentation meetings. The list of rooms will be expanding over time but corporate facilities and spacious suites already await your visit. The day to day tasks are in the capable hands of the host, Edzard Meyberg, and his team, Mathew and Jack.

Lynnwood and its sister suburbs, like our Lynnwood Ridge, are well-developed areas, lying to the east of the city centre of Pretoria, South Africa. When Lynnwood was first established in the 1960s, it was the most eastern suburb of Pretoria, but the city has since considerably expanded eastwards and southwards. Today these suburbs are known as the old east and boast to have some of the city’s most high-end residential properties.

We are situated in Camellia Avenue, on the corner of Daffodil Street. The other flowery streets in the block are Freesia to the south and Insignis to the East, followed by Mayflower Street, and the list goes on.  Camellias are originally found in Asia, from the Himalayas down to Indonesia. They are evergreen shrubs or small trees and their flowers, varying from white through pink to red, are up to 12 cm in diameter, with five to nine petals.

Some interesting trivia about the property is that when dividing the suburb, the surveyors thought it best to allocate 21 Camellia Avenue to the NG Church to initiate a parish. The congregation, however, declined the small property and chose to establish a big centre in Lancia Str. As the zoning had already been confirmed as non-residential, it was thus no problem for The Sister Lilian Centre to use 21 Camelia Ave for their precious work: helping expecting mothers and offering tips to moms and dads to help achieve a healthier and happier life for them and their babies. The Sister Lilian Centre eventually moved to new premises and the building was used as an office for a while before being completely revamped, rebuild, reborn into the stunning Wildflower Lodge.

We are pleased that our spot on the map has been blessed with such good energy from the very beginning.

 

 

 

 Edzard Meyberg is your host at Wildflower LodgeEdzard Meyberg

 Born and raised as a German in South Africa, he grew up on the flat plains of the Highveld of the then western Transvaal. The closest town was 25km away. After school, he studied photography and was lucky to find a job at the State Theatre in Pretoria, South Africa. He has always had an interest in the performing arts and has been working in the world of theatre for over 20 years, starting off as an assistant to the photographer and working his way up to Chief Photographer and Graphic Designer. In those years he not only spent time with local artists and performers from all over the world but also spent a lot of time backstage to widen his horizon and experience. When the theatre was closed in 2000, he started freelancing as photographer, designer and web-master. He also worked as stage manager for locally based American artist Joseph Clark on numerous corporate and other stages in South Africa and abroad - from Cape Town to Hamburg (Germany).

After the theatre days, he worked at the St.Peters congregation in central Pretoria as office/venue manager. Duties included - amongst others - all the accounting and other money matters, office administration, computer and network maintenance. Toward the end of 2010, he felt the urge to try something completely different and enrolled at a somatology academy to become a Massage and Holistic Therapist.

2013-14 saw him working as a therapist in a day spa where he was soon promoted to manager. These where challenging and educational years but all his clients left very relaxed, refreshed and pain-free when he was done with them.

In 2015 he took a sabbatical time out to travel to Germany where he walked on a pilgrimage from Munich to Berlin to Hamburg and to Osnabrueck - a distance of 1435km. He also attended numerous Seminars to further his massage and touch therapy training.

On returning from his travels, he ran a little massage studio before joining Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa in Hazyview as Spa Manager. Working in this 5-Star environment opened the doors to the hospitality industry. He received formal training as a Butler in Cape Town and then joined Wildflower Lodge where he will be your host.

Come and experience what he has learned on his travels -
be it as part of your visit to Wildflower Lodge
or on his plinth for a wonderfully relaxing massage.
