Although the Corona virus in South Africa fortunately does not spread quickly within the country, the restrictions to travel are increasing. If you are unable to come to our Guest House due to these restrictions, you can reschedule the reservation to a later date free of charge.
South Africa is regularly in the news because of crime. Recently, there have also been negative reports about Cape Town. Unfortunately we cannot say that these messages are not true at all, but journalists are often indiscriminate in their reporting and have an interest in sensation. We understand very well that all these messages scare people away. I remember all too well that when I went to South Africa for the first time, I thought it was pretty exciting. We have now been living in South Africa for 3.5 years and I (as a woman) never feel unsafe. Of course there are certain things that you should and should not do (as in most major cities). Below you will find two articles with the most frequently asked questions and the do's and don'ts.
Our guest house is an hour's drive from Cape Town in a quiet area, so book a room with us if you prefer not to sleep in a big city. We are very centrally located half an hour from the airport, half an hour from Stellenbosch and 45 minutes from Hermanus. If you have other questions, please let us know..
As from 1st January 2018 we don't have a large conference room anymore. However we can do small conferences up to 8/10 people but only when you also stay the night. Our lounge area will be available as conference room.
Our guesthouse has its own water supply and we are therefore not dependent on the municipal water supply.
Update August 6, 2019: Good news !! The dams are 76.8% filled. In Cape Town, restrictions on the use of water remain in force but have been brought back to level 3, which means that 105 liters per person per day may be used without incurring additional costs. 'There has always been plenty of drinking water everywhere and you can simply shower everywhere. We have our own water supply and therefore no water restrictions!
Cape Town had a water crisis due to a serious water shortage. South Africa and in particular the Western Cape, was experiencing the worst drought in more than 100 years. What are the consequences and what does that mean for my stay in South Africa?
