Guest Houses and B&B's
From the quirky and stylish to the sumptuously comfortable. This is just a small selection of the places we have to offer.
Kwalucia Private Safari Retreat is the very first 5-Star Bed & Breakfast in the heart of beautiful St Lucia.
Set amongst a subtropical garden, it nestles in unspoilt wilderness and is completely surrounded by the impressive sprawling iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a Natural World Heritage Site.
It combines comfort with charming Zulu spirit. All 4 exclusive units are en-suite, air conditioned and have private patios. And who could resist sitting around the authentic bomba fire area at night, enjoying the attentive service provided by hosts Ann and Alex Belgian-Catalan?
Close to all restaurants and shops and the famous resident hippos who roam the streets at dusk.
Cape Diem Lodge
Cape Diem Lodge is an award-winning boutique style guest lodge right in the heart of cultural Cape Town.
Ideally set in a beautifully landscaped garden in one of the most sought-after positions on the slopes of Signal Hill, right next to Table Mountain.
Don’t expect ordinary from this beautifully converted 19th Century jewel.
It marries old and new design and reflects both local and global influences. Equipped with every mod-con, stylish comfort is its byword and the hospitality at Cape Diem is second to none.
Montusi Mountain Lodge
Montusi Mountain Lodge is an exclusive owner-run guest lodge in the beautifully tranquil setting of the Northern Drakensberg mountains in KwaZulu Natal, a World Heritage Site.
In fact, it is the only upmarket destination with uninterrupted views of the spectacular Drakensberg Amphitheater from each and every one of its suites. There are 10 in total, all with TV, DVD, gas fireplaces and private patios.
The hospitality here is boundless, the cuisine superb and the home-made bread legendary.
In-house massage, birding, fly-fishing, tennis, swimming, golfing and biking are all on offer, but frankly when we stay, we can’t wait to settle down, facing a view to die for and prepare to lose ourselves in idyllic, peaceful solitude.
De Denne Country House
De Denne Country Guest House is a real one-off.
Superbly situated for The Garden Route (and a scenic 4-hour drive from Cape Town), De Denne offers accommodation on a working ostrich farm, just outside Oudtshoorn. It has spectacular views over the Oliphant and Swartberg mountain range and witnesses unforgettable glowing African sunsets.
Comprising of 8 beautiful, well-equipped family-friendly cottages set in luscious gardens and 5 romantic luxury Main House en-suite bedrooms, Cape Diem has something for everyone.
Honeymooners can relax by the pool and gaze at the stars, while mum and dad can take the kids to watch cute (not so) little ostrich chicks hatch. All tourist sites are close by – the Cango Caves just a 45-minute drive and there are great bike trails and walks.
