Ian & Minky

“The Continent of Sulina” is a manifestation of a promise that Minky made to her Faerie and Angel Friends when she was a young child, that one day she would create a safe home for them to live in. When she moved to Swellendam she met the man of her dreams, Ian Sulin! A local potter who introduced her to clay and the Faerie Sculptures came to life!

Minky & Ian Sulin

Sulina is not a “business” or “tourist attraction”, it is a Special Faerie and Angel Sanctuary. Home of Ian and Minky Sulin, lovingly shared, for the sole purpose to re-connect everyone who passes by to the Natural World, and make them aware of her loving Caretakers and Guardians!

Everyone who passes by, ends up returning with a picnic basket and staying a whole day in this healing Sanctuary they now call home.

The humans who look after the Faeries are incredibly fortunate to be part of such a special world. They are passionate people who bring so much good energy to Sulina! The Faeries love these guys!

To protect our living creatures of all kind we are not pet friendly.

Our Enchanted Garden

Our Enchanted Garden is left for the Natural Caretakers to take care of, and the Humans just help with the heavy stuff, watering and composting! No poisons or chemicals are used here. As a result, the Garden runs on its own eco-system and everything lives here! It has truly become a tiny Magical Nature reserve!

Faerie-nuf Gallery

The “Faerie-nuf” home gallery is seen as an “Adoption Centre” for all the unique creations that come through Sulina’s creative family. It runs on Love and Trust and all visitors are left alone to enjoy the experience of being 5 years old again, and everyone shrinks down to enjoy the Magic that goes on in every little nook and cranny!
