Description

Kapteinskloof Guest Cottage is situated on a smallholding in the West Coast region, between Piketberg and Velddrif, approximately 180 km north of Cape Town. The cottage is nestled in the beautiful valley of Kapteinskloof, and is one of the oldest original homesteads of this area.

Accommodation is offered in an original, charming sandveld cottage. Furniture is kept simple and uncluttered so as not to distract from the vernacular architecture of the walls and the windows. The smell of thatch as you walk in completes the earthy feel. The self-catering cottage can accommodate 2 to 6 guests, and is rented out as 1 unit to ensure guests privacy. The cottage is detached from the main house. Cutlery and crockery, bath towels, linen are provided. Please bring your own swimming towels. Firewood is available at R50 a bag.

The cottage comprises a separate room with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom with 2 single beds and an en-suite bathroom, and a lounge/bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, and direct access to the kitchen. The cosy kitchen is equipped with an old Dover stove, a fridge, a microwave, a small oven, and hot plates. Please note there is no TV or radio in the rooms, and no cell phone reception. Guests can cool off in the spring-water swimming pool set in a grove of citrus trees.

In 1988 the playwright Pieter Fourie started to renovate the houses, which date back to 1831. Through his love and passion for old architecture and his dedication to detail, he managed to retain the sandveld character of the homestead, which is both simple, yet charming. Guests are invited to enjoy the country lifestyle; go for walks, bring your mountain bike, go for a drive off the beaten track, admire the spring flowers, or simply take a good book and find a spot under a tree and let time pass you by.

Pet policy: Pets are welcome (strictly by arrangement) as a guests need to take into account the other animals on farm. All dogs, horses and caged birds welcome all year round. Pets sleep inside; bring own pet beds, bedding and bowls. Stables are available for horses. Consideration must be given to resident dogs, cats, birds, horses, farm animals and wildlife.
