Die Stoep offers comfortable self-catering accommodation in a charming Karoo-style farmhouse built with Victorian detail around the year 1860. This was one of the first houses in Calitzdorp. As the name suggests, Die Stoep features a large wrap-around verandah with doors opening onto it and features Oregon pine floors and sash windows with shutters.
The ceilings are high and the walls were constructed out of unfired mud bricks. The building style was typical of the period, and the result is a cool house in the hot summer months and a warm house in winter. The shutters are still used to regulate the indoor temperature.
The typical farmhouse can accommodate up to 10 guests and comprises 3 bedrooms with percale linen and bath towels. The main bedroom, Ostrich, has a king-size bed, a bunk bed, a cupboard, and a dresser. The second bedroom, springbok, has a double bed, a cupboard, and an en-suite bathroom with a shower, basin and toilet. This room leads through the bar into the courtyard. The third bedroom, Meerkat, leads onto the wrap-around verandah and has a double bed, a cupboard, and an en-suite bathroom with a bath, basin and shower. There is a double sleeper couch in the dining room. There is also a separate bathroom with a toilet, basin and a shower over the vintage bath.
The large dining room is in the centre of the house and can seat 10 guests, this is the ideal place to entertain. The lounge features a fireplace and is equipped with a TV and a Hi-Fi system. The lounge leads onto the verandah. The kitchen has a cosy seating area and a fireplace for those cold winter nights. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, a stove, a microwave, a coffee machine, a steamer, a dishwasher and a washing machine, as well as cutlery, crockery and glassware. There is also a braai grid, tongs and potjie pots.
The courtyard is accessed from the kitchen on the one side and the bar on the other. It is fully enclosed by a high wall. Here, guests can enjoy the star-filled night sky from the built-in seating area, with a fire pit. The house also offers an undercover braai and entertainment area, and is equipped with an alarm system, Wi-Fi, and selected DStv channels. Guests also have access to off-street parking.
A perfect place to star-gazing is situated next to the splash pool in the garden, where there is also an undercover seating area with an outdoor Dover stove.
