The space
The Napier Country House was built in 1850 and the house exudes rustic charm offering a three bedroom apartment on the ground floor and a lovely dorm in the loft for the younger generation. Both spaces are self catering with well equipped kitchenettes.

GROUNDFLOOR COTTAGE:
The spaces are rustic and simple, but not luxurious, although very charming and cosy. The bedrooms are not big and roughly 2.9 meter by 2.9 meter in size.
Both the ground floor apartment and loft have access to the large, colourful garden. The ground floor space has a lovely barbecue area looking out over the country garden.
The ground floor space has three smallish bedrooms, a living area and small equipped kitchen with large fridge. The three bedrooms sleep five people. The rooms are cosy, but are on the small side and 2.9 by 2.9 meters.

UPSTAIRS LOFT SPACE:
The upstairs loft can sleep four people in a spacious open dorm space. Access is via a steep staircase. The kitchenette and seating area overlooks the flourishing garden. The kitchenette has a small fridge, two plate stove and microwave oven with pots and plates.
The garden has a couple of hidden treasures.Table and chairs shaded by the huge fig tree. Ideal for lazy summer lunches and warm evenings outside. Further away is a cosy reading nook for some quiet time.
A deck is situated at the top of the garden and overlooks the house and is ideal for yoga or just chilling and drinking a gin and tonic. Two hammocks are available for the lazy at heart.
The pool is located next to the deck area and is 7 meters long and 1.5 meters wide. The depth is consistent at 1.2 meters, It is cleaned regularly and a great way to cool down.

Fleur, our caretaker and her two friendly dogs Thandi and Meimei are available to assist if need be. We are PET friendly, subject to prior consultation and discussion.
We charge R100 per night xtra if you have pets as we put our dogs in a kennel.

Guest access
The ground floor apartment is rustic and leads out to the veranda in the front and the garden to the back. The farmhouse has three bedrooms and share a bathroom consisting of a shower and a toilet, but no bath.

The second space available is the upstairs loft area and shares a small bathroom where tall people would have to watch their heads when moving from the toilet to the shower.Access to the loft space is via a steep staircase, so not appropriate for older people.

The garden,pool and barbecue is available to guests. The garden is big and offers quiet reading nooks and areas to relax or do yoga.

There's nothing like time in the country to recharge your batteries and get you feeling like a human again.

But rustic living doesn't mean you have to rough it. Napier has become know as a "foodie" destination due to its excellent eateries: everything from fine dining and light meals at Pascal's of Napier to pizza, pool table and local Napier beer at the Suntouched Inn. The Suntouched is popular with the young crowd and sport lovers.Weekends are busy and live music is often featured. The bar is always bustling with locals and visitors alike.

Apart from great hikes, horse riding, restaurant bars, the ocean is 30 minutes away in nearby Arniston. Here one can see the undersea cave, large enough to accommodate an ox wagon and relax on a lovely beach with turquoise water.
Napier is only 2 hours away from Cape Town and surrounded by lovely farms and mountains.
The famous De Hoop Whale Hiking trial is less than an hour away and offers some of the most breathtaking ocean views.
