At the back is a braai (BBQ) verandah and a fire pit. A fire place inside for cold winter nights and air conditioning in lounge. Full wifi.

The space
The cottage is in a quiet street, walking distance to the well known Village Trading Post restaurant and the main street with its curio shops and eateries. Many tourist attractions on your doorstep, Meiringspoort, Swartberg pass, Ostrich show farms and hiking trails. The house and garden is kept in a tiptop condition by our caring neighbor who will attend to you during your stay. Ideal for couples, families and groups during events such as marathons, cycling events and the annual KKNK art festival. The house is furnished with period furniture reflecting the era of nearly a 100 years ago. There is a lock-up garage and a carport for vehicles and additional parking space. In summer time the lovely braai (BBQ) verandah with a fire pit ensures for relaxing evenings in the clean Klein Karoo air. For the chilly Karoo winter nights there is a fire place (Kaggelkamer) and for hot summer days also an air conditioning unit in the lounge. Two living areas in the house ensure enough space for everyone and the kitchen has a four burner with oven gas stove and everything needed to prepare home cook meals if you do not want to eat out in one of the village's restaurants.

All the surrounding houses in Hoop street was build before 1910 and it is a historic street with beautiful architecture as is the town itself. We guarantee total silence and peace and safety. There is a few very good eateries and a coffee shop in De Rust and art and curio shops. The Meiringspoort and Swartberg area offers a number of day trips and visits to popular tourist sites. But for those into nature the area boasts plenty of hiking and cycling trails. Day trips to Prince Albert, Swartberg pass, Cango caves, ostrich show farms, Klein Karoo wine estates and olive farms are all in close proximity.
