Toe Jan Braai vir Erfenis De Rust besoek het, het hy by De Rust View Gastehuis oornag. Ben moes toe 'n volstruis-eier vir die program gaarmaak. Groot pret gewees!

Sorry! We are fully booked for the Meiringspoort 1/2 Marathon

About 3500 athletes visit De Rust to run the Meiringspoort 1/2 marathon. Unfortunately accommodation in De Rust is limited to about 300 beds. The next best option will be Klaarstroom, Prince Albert and of course Oudtshoorn.

Your hosts:

We came to De Rust some four years ago. Lanie-Marie is a lawyer that once a month go to her practice in Marble Hall and Ben - a former journalist - then has to keep the fort.

You may also encounter the following at the guesthouse. If you are allergic or have a deeprooted fear of animals, please let us know so that we can lock them up.

We found Coco under a pile of wood one morning. She had 4 legs then, but was limping and so we took her to the vet who told us the break was too bad and so the leg was amputated.

Coco - a loveable three legged cat

Katinkie may be loveable the one moment and grumpy the next.

Moja's favourite party trick is rolling over for a tummy rub. She adores adults, but may-be grumpy with kids.

Moja - an excitable Jack Russel

Inside areas are modern and stylish
