About Stellendal Guest House
Stellendal Guesthouse offers accommodation in en-suite double rooms in the Cape-Dutch style guest house or fully equipped self catering cottages, within walking distance of shops and restaurants.
Owner-managers Kine and Damian have lovingly refurbished the interior of this 90-year-old Cape-Dutch style house with a touch so sure that the air of serenity remains virtually undisturbed. Garden greenery, secluded nooks under burgeoning oak trees and an idyllic pool, create a haven of peace amidst the bustle of daily life, where you have time to tune into the song of birds, the croaking of frogs.
The seven en-suite double bedrooms offer guests a taste of Africa, the Bushman room and the Ndebele room, for instance. The accent is on simplicity and comfort; so, for example, the beds are extra-long, and low-level heating keeps the indoor temperature pleasant.
Wooden floors, padded sofas and a large fireplace accentuate the elegance of the lounge and the library. Here guests can gather for a drink and read their own book or a book out of the libraryr. The three self catering cottages offer all the conveniences the traveler needs for a comfortable stay, and children can there also be accommodated.
All these benefits, and affordable rates mean that Stellendal Guest House really does offer good value for money.

Attractions & Activities
Somerset West, nestling in the valley below the Hottentots Holland mountains, is ideally placed for energetic pursuits such as cycling tours and mountain hikes of varying degrees of difficulty. For the less athletic, there’s the Helderberg wine route with excellent estates close to the town, and a selection of beaches nearby - only 10 minutes to Strand, for instance, and 15 minutes to Gordon’s Bay.
Historic Stellenbosch is a mere 20-minute drive away. Kine and Damian can assist you with the selection of your activities and with your program.
