Elevated room. Ensuite bathroom. Heating provided. Electric blanket. Kettle and complimentary beverages & snack.
Secure, quiet area. Indoor parking. Beautiful views of the Langeberg Mountain and Swellendam village. Pool, BBQ area, use of kitchen on request.

The space

No neighbours next to elevated room. Wake up to the sound of birds and a great view from your bed - may even be snow on the mountain in winter!

Guest access

My living space is open-planned. Guests may use the top patio for drinks at sunset; there is a lovely garden (including backyard) to walk in; there is a downstairs patio and BBQ area next to the pool for summer.

Interaction with guests

I am a qualified registered Tourist Guide, operating in the Swellendam area, at a radius of 150 km with Swellendam as basis. I can offer helpful hints to all my guests, as well as take them on personalized tours ( or walks in town or in Marloth Nature Reserve) or further afield on day trips, with Swellendam as base.
We live in a beautiful area with lots to see and an enormous variety of scenery, from mountains to the ocean.

Other things to note

This is a home, and not a hotel. Guests must be in the right frame of mind to make this a good experience both for themselves and their hostess!
The accommodation is luxurious, and private, and very reasonably priced.

Look forward to seeing you again in the future, at leisure time! I am still in awe of all trailrunners who partake in the Marloth Challenge each year - I admire your courage!

Alice is close enough to town to be convenient for local amenities and far enough away to be quiet. Willemien has a fund of local knowledge and can recommend good places to eat.

Willemien was helpful (made dinner reservation at short notice) and well informed of the events and places to eat. We really enjoyed relaxing with a glass of sherry after unpacking.

The bedroom and ensuite bathroom were great for the few days we were in Swellendam. Our hostess, Williamina, made us feel welcome into her home, as her first guests. Coffee, tea, milk, etc. and a kettle, was provided in the room. The second night we were surprised with a glass of port each, which was most welcome after a long day at our conference. We had our meals at the conference venue or at one of the many restaurants available in Swellendam.

Een hele lieve warme gastvrouw ontvangt je in haar mooie huis. Ze heeft een prachtige tuin met zwembad, een balkon waar je heerlijk wegkijkt en een fijne suite waarin je verblijft. Als verassing open je de kastdeuren en heb je een grote luxe badkamer met bad en douche ter beschikking. Naast dit alles weet ze erg veel over de do en don'ts van de omgeving en kun je haar om allerlei tips vragen voor je verdere reis in zuid Afrika. Een echte aanrader!

Gastgeberin ist super nett und wahnsinnig bemüht. Hat uns sogar ein Frühstück am Morgen zubereitet und war durchgängig aufmerksam. Ebenfalls eine Reservierung in einem Restaurant im Ort wurde übernommen. Lage des Hauses ist sicher und ruhig. Garten ist super schön.
