About Rainbow Cottage
Rainbow Cottage is situated on Mountain Pass Road, just after the La Petite Ferme entrance and is 2 kilometres from the Huguenot Monument, with easy access to Franschhoek Village. Its position is perfectly placed for those wishing to avoid the nightly clamour of tourists and locals enjoying a “night on the town”.
There is a medium size swimming pool which offers an opportunity to cool down in summer and refresh after a shopping spree along the main road in Franschhoek. When you book Rainbow Cottage it is for your exclusive use and you will not have to “endure” the company of other holiday makers.
Self Catering Accommodation
The cottage was recently completely renovated by combining the old water bottling plant offices with a newly built extension. In the original building we have created two double bed sized rooms with ample wardrobe space and a fully equipped bathroom and combined shower and bath.
There is a separate covered entrance leading from the single vehicle garage which allows direct entry into the cottage, past the two ground floor bedroom and the bathroom and then into the open plan kitchen and lounge.
The new extension houses the kitchen which is fully equipped with all modern appliances, including dishwasher, washing machine, capsule coffee machine, microwave, ceramic stove and under counter oven. All the equipment, crockery and cutlery were selected so as to meet our Four Star rating as provided by The Grading Council of South Africa.
The lounge is furnished with comfortable couches and armchairs eminently suited as a chat area and for viewing Premium Bouquet DStv on a 40” LED Television. A fireplace (with wood supplied) makes for cosy “fireside chats” during winter. Underfloor heating adds to the comfort level in the colder months. There is a six seater dining table in the same area but out of the way of the lounge area. The cottage is equipped with Wi-Fi and allows internet access from any part of the cottage.
Upstairs you will find a luxurious main bedroom en-suite, with heated towel rails, bath and separate shower.
From the lounge you can exit through a set of folding doors and on the right hand side, around the corner, you will find a louvre type cover that can be opened to a vertical position for extra light and sun. There is also a gas fired barbecue. We cannot use wood due to the proximity of the forest. This area is complete with sun loungers and chairs for the concrete table.
The Cottage is enclosed (distantly) by an electric fence and is equipped with an alarm system complete with panic alarms monitored by Pepler Alarms in Franschhoek. The armed response vehicles have access through the two self-closing gates to Rainbow.
Everything that one can think of for a comfortable quiet and relaxed holiday is available for you to enjoy.
