Calling all golfers to Somerset West, South Africa!

Have you ever thought of visiting the stunning Cape Winelands in the Western Cape for two or three weeks or golfing and holiday bliss? Maybe now is the time! 

Great accommodation rates are available from March - December

South Africa is already a very affordable destination if you are travelling on the Euro, Pound or US Dollar and our lower accommodation rates for these ‘off-peak’ months make it even more affordable! We have Luxury, Deluxe and Standard rooms available at different rates and we also offer single rates in our 'off-peak' times. Included in the daily rate is a delicious and generous breakfast. You are also able to utilise the kitchen in the main house or cottage for lunches and dinners, as well as our outdoor braai facilities.

Why Somerset West?

Somerset West is one of the world’s best kept secrets and great value for money! 

Guests staying with us often say that Somerset West, located in the Cape Winelands near Stellenbosch, is one of the most beautiful places on earth with kilometres of rolling vineyards, picturesque mountains and the sea surrounding the area. Since moving here ten years ago from Johannesburg with our two young daughters, we have been very happy and never take the peace and beauty of the area for granted. Most importantly for your stay with us, Somerset West and nearby Stellenbosch have fantastic golf courses! For example, Erinvale Golf Club, Somerset West Golf Club, Stellenbosch Golf Club, De Zalze Golf Club, Stellenbosch Golf Club, Strand Golf Club and Arabella Golf Club. Cape Town, Paarl and Franschhoek also have lovely golf courses if you’d like to venture a bit further out (see more details below). 

Not only this, Somerset West is well situated for you to visit an abundance of world-class wine farms in Somerset West, Stellenbosch and beyond, most of whom house top restaurants at very good prices. Our guests are constantly amazed at the unbelievable quality and affordability of meals they enjoy at these restaurants in our area. Guests can also adventure into nature for a hike or mountain bike ride on many of the trails near us, or stroll along the beach. Cape Town itself is also only a 30-minute drive away, so you can also take in all the attractions that Cape Town has to offer.

We have great weather in March, April, October, November and December!

We regularly accommodate Golfing tour groups at our guesthouse in January and February months, but in our opinion it’s way too hot here in February. As locals, we actually way prefer the above-mentioned months, where the weather is still lovely and hot, but it’s not scorching hot and overcrowded. The chances of getting a golf booking and a restaurant booking also increases from March through to November and specials are often available at restaurants, golf courses, tourist attractions etc in these ‘off-peak’ times.

Our guesthouse is the perfect peaceful retreat for your stay: Up to 24 people can be accommodated

Our guesthouse is the perfect venue to host your group. It has four stars, is family-operated and the atmosphere is intimate, comfortable, beautiful, safe, secure and accommodating, with ample parking and space to store your golf clubs. Along with this, we are pretty much ‘off-grid’, so we have a borehole supplying fresh water to the guesthouse, and we have a full inverter energy backup system that supplies electricity to the guesthouse in the event of electricity disruptions, so your stay will be comfortable. We also have free wi-fi. We have twelve rooms for single travellers or couples. Eight rooms are situated in the main house and four rooms are situated in the cottage, separated by a lovely big garden and sparkly blue pool. In total, we could host up to 24 players; it’s really nice for the group to take out all the rooms in the guesthouse so that you have the whole house to yourselves and can relax and really make it your own space for the duration of your holiday. We have a combination of Luxury, Deluxe and Standard rooms available for double or single occupants. Please visit: to view our gallery of pictures of our guesthouse and pictures of the rooms etc.
