Gys du Toit was the previous owner and lived here from 1981 until 2014. When he decided to move to Ceres for his retirement, the family decided to convert this beautiful farmhouse into a guesthouse so that other people can also have the pleasure of enjoying this amazing part of the world.
During the week, rooms can be booked individually on a room only, bed & breakfast or full board option, while on weekends the house is booked out as a self-catering unit.
