About Desert Rose Guest House
Desert Rose is an up-market Guest House, situated in the heart of Namaqualand, Springbok, offering superb B&B and self catering accommodation at reasonable rates.
Spectacular views of surrounding granite "koppies" and the picturesque town are visible from your room. The guest house was built by the owners Piet and Maralynn van Zyl in 2004, who took the necessary steps to ensure that the guests have all amenities.
Situated in a quiet residential area, Desert Rose is a very central place to stay during the flower season; July to September. We are also within walking distance to restaurants, shops and banks. Enjoy a braai (BBQ) in our lapa, and gaze at the cloudless heaven.
