The space

Rose Cottage is a very comfortable fully-equipped "home away from home". During the summer months, the house stays wonderfully cool and in the winter, there is a open fireplace to warm you up. The undercover outdoor braai (bbq) area is great for family entertaining. You will see beautiful sunbirds & sugarbirds flying around the garden.

Guest access

When you stay at Rose Cottage, you and your guests will have the entire main house to yourself, with your car for the door - A private and secure parking area.
Maid-service will be twice a week - as well as the gardener, maintaining the garden....
The big, well maintained garden invites you to admire the roses,the palm trees or sit under the mature trees (American ash and eucalyptus)and enjoy our outside area.

Interaction with guests

I have a separate flat on the property which I sometimes make use of during the summer months (Oct-Feb). My daughter (who manages the property) lives nearby and is only a phone call away. She & her husband are a great source of information about "things to do - and places to go" and especially about the walking and rock climbing areas in Montagu.

Other things to note

We ask guests to please not smoke in the house. You welcome to do so outside.

Very relaxing. Nice to have 2 ensuite bedrooms, one with a bath and 1 with a shower. Lovely view of mountains from the garden and easy walk into Montagu.

We were a group of 4 friends looking for a wine-focused getaway and the Rose Cottage was a great choice. Montagu is a cute town with easy access to great wineries. It is a really large house: easily sleeps 2 couples plus a few others in a 3rd bedroom. Plenty of space, multiple bathrooms, well-equipped kitchen, nicely decorated. The house is super clean and with excellent attention to detail: everything we could want for was there, from extra towels to hair dryers to coffee filters. Christa is kind and enthusiastic; she gave great tips for the area. Be aware of early checkout time (10AM). Really excellent stay, highly recommended.

The Rose Cottage is a beautifully decorated hideout near the small town centre of Montagu. There is ample space in the cottage's large living room and under the big tree in the quiet garden. Braai facilities and a well equipped kitchen cater for all those who chose not to dine at one of the local restaurants. The host Christa made us feel extremely welcome, we really felt at home, and provided a range of great ideas for activities in the area. We hope to have a chance to visit again!

Lovely, comfortable cottage, luxuriously big for the two of us. Houses easily 6 persons. Everything very well organised. Montagu is a beautiful Karoo village, worth visiting. Thanks Christa and Reiner, for your super-tip: a tractor-ride on Langeberg, including the very tasteful potjieskos.

Born in Vienna, Austria, Christa emigrated from her home country in 1975. Her ambitions and expertise have always been in the area of self-improvement and “helping people to help themselves”. With her PhD degree in Philosophy, she had a private practice in counseling in Cape Town. After her retirement she became the owner of a self catering upper class guesthouse. She renovated an old building (1903) and created a most beautiful "home away from home" in historic Montagu.

As a "people-lover" person, she makes everybody welcome to share this special self catering place with guests all over the world!
