Chic, cheerfully cheap and perfectly positioned between the Cape and the start of the Garden Route. A hideaway of bright rooms and clean lines, bordering one of the Cape's most charming old towns.

Beautiful place and great hospitality! I can recommend it to everyone!! The owners, Carla en Maarten, do everything to make you feel special. Swellendam is a very pretty city. But also we visited nature reserve Bontebok and the Hoop . We saw a lot of whales with their calves while having a lovely picnic. There is too much to see or do for 1 day! So , next time we want to stay longer in this colorful, luxury place, with the beautiful flowers, birds and very friendly hosts. And I never had such a delicious breakfast!

Top design in a cool atmosphere

Experience a total new type of guest house! On an estate of 2.5 ha there are only 7 beautiful rooms, put this together with 2 very professional hosts, a tranquil surrounding and a very warm, cosy designer lounge and you have the makings of a great stay.

Great fresh breakfast, every day in a new setting. Top spot on the Garden route...
