About De Kuilen Country House

A stone's throw away from Sandton's business districts, set in 7 acres of country side, and lovingly filled with treasured family heirlooms and magnificent antiques, it is a place of peace and pampering.

Minutes away from Sandton City, and even less from Fourways Mall, lies an unexpectedly beautiful recreation of an 18th century Cape Dutch homestead in an "island" of green tranquillity. De Kuilen combines the warmth and graciousness of traditional Cape Dutch hospitality with all modern comforts in one of Johannesburg’s most convenient northern suburbs – perfectly positioned for a peaceful setting and a spacious venue for relaxation. Your hosts offer you a warm welcome with security, privacy and tranquillity.

ACCOMMODATION

Guests may choose to stay in either of the three large and charmingly appointed cottages: Birdsong Cottage, Pomegranate Cottage and Arum Cottage. All the cottages are very large, self-contained and tranquil, set in their own gardens, fragrant with roses and herbs.

You may also choose to have breakfast served on your own private garden veranda, or in the rose-filled courtyard of the main house. For other meals you may wish to take advantage of the excellent self-catering facilities. Perhaps indulge yourself with a memorable gourmet dinner, Provençal in feeling, preceded by conversation by the fire in Winter, and in Summer, drinks in alfresco ambience.

Another pleasant option is to stay in one of our two smaller, 4-star, (TGCSA Graded) bed & breakfast suites called "The Tree Houses." Spacious and romantic, The Tree House has a roof garden and fountains. Elegant Dovecote (single cottage) has a small study, a garden and a covered veranda.

Arum Cottage
Arum Cottage consists of two en-suite bedrooms, a cozy lounge, with fireplace, a beautifully equipped kitchenette and private veranda for outdoor dining. Sleeps family of 4. Can also be divided into 2 separate cottages: Lavender suite has an upstairs bedroom and cosy lounge with fireplace and covered veranda. Arum Lily suite has a magnificent romantic four-poster draped bed, a kitchenette and a conservatory lounge with fireplace.

Birdsong Luxury Cottage
Birdsong Cottage consists of one bedroom, a full kitchen, a large private lounge/dining room leading on to your outdoor living area.
