Set in large, tranquil grounds this is the perfect place to unwind. Only 20 minutes drive from the airport, city and various beaches and situated in the heart of the oldest wine producing area in South Africa, this is a fantastic choice for accommodation, conferences and functions. We also have ample secure off-street parking.
This is the view from our front door towards the entry gate, a full 110m away. This helps to isolate us from the noise of civilisation and create this peaceful retreat.
There are many areas for you to walk and explore as well as to picnic or read. You really feel like you've found an oasis in the heart of the suburbs.
You can chill on the back stoep and enjoy the afternoon sun with a glass of something cold and something to eat. Also a great place to sit and read.
The office is on the far left of the front stoep and on those rare occassions when time allows, you will find us sitting on the bench enjoying the soothing sounds of nature.
We have a large open kitchen for the use of all our guests. Each room is assigned fridge space and a cupboard for dry goods. Everyone is expected to clean up after themselves and to respect other guests.
We have two lounges for the use of guests. These each have comfortable seating as well as a television.
On a Wednesday evening we open the bar for members, friends and guests. There are braai fascilities and you are welcome to bring along some meat for a "bring and braai".
Our function hall is ideally suited to smaller, more intimate events. The room seats 62 people at round tables. It has toilets for function attendees as well as a catering kitchen (for heating and plating only, no cooking on site).
Our beautiful conference room can hold up to 30 delegates with comfort. Tea, coffee and meals are served in our function hall.
Basie Smit Suite
Almost all our rooms have single beds. The Basie Smit Suite is the only exception and has a queen sized bed with an en-suite bathroom.
We have 9 rooms in addition to the Basie Smit Suite. Room 1 has only 1 single bed and Room 8 sleeps 4 in single beds, but all other rooms have 2 single beds in them. 6 rooms are en-suite and 4 (situated in the main house) share 2 bathrooms.
The actual Diep River runs through the property and there is nothing nicer than listening to the sound of the water as it dances over the rocks. The river is home to crabs, frogs and is enjoyed by all our wildlife including our resident pair of wild Egyptian geese.
