About Bidhuisie

In the middle of the peaceful Great Karoo in the Western Cape lies a quaint little village set amid beautiful natural surroundings. Just 42 kilometres off the N1 south towards Cape Town, you will find Prince Albert at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountain Range. Little has changed here since the first settlers founded this idyllic town around 250 years ago.

Walking down tree-lined streets with their lovingly preserved Cape Dutch and Victorian buildings, you hear the gentle murmur of water flowing in the village’s irrigation furrows. Here, rural life is peaceful and unhurried, where friendly townsfolk greet friends and strangers alike with a smile and a wave.

Nominated for Town of the Year in 2012, Prince Albert has no less than 19 national monuments, making it a treasure for those who value South Africa’s rich historical and architectural heritage. On the outskirts of Prince Albert lies a tranquil little gem of a cottage called Bid Huisie (Prayer House).

Accommodation

Originally an old church, the exterior of this exclusive two-bedroomed cottage has been left untouched. Wooden shutters and white framed doors and windows offset the lilac grey walls of this delightful old building. Bid Huisie’s modified cottage interior offers homely self-catering accommodation for people seeking quiet, yet still wanting to be within walking distance to explore Prince Albert. Just a few days in this serene rural village with its hospitable inhabitants and you’ll understand why so many people escape here to renew their spirits.

Bid Huisie offers two beautifully decorated bedrooms with double beds to provide a comfortable stay for four people. A quaint shared bathroom features a shower, washbasin and toilet. With its floral theme, Bid Huisie’s restful open living space comprises a lounge and dining area with fully equipped kitchenette. Bright scatter cushions, light shades and paintings mingle with the cosy furnishings that include an antique six-seater dining table, wingback chairs and comfortable sofa. The kitchenette has a fridge, microwave and stove. While all cutlery, crockery and bedding are provided, the cottage does not have a TV.

In the living area, guests can laze on the sofa after a busy day sightseeing, have a leisurely meal, or read a favourite book. Leading off from the cottage’s living area is a covered patio overlooking a private enclosed Karoo garden. Alongside the patio is seating, a barbeque and a splash pool – ideal for the hot Karoo winter days. The covered patio with its view of a fragrant lavender rock garden, offers a peaceful spot to enjoy a barbeque, glass of wine or simply soak in the stillness as you gaze at the mountains in the distance and the nearby windmill.

What makes Bid Huisie special?
• Relaxing self catering getaway for small families or friends in the tranquil Great Karoo

• Historic two-bedroomed cottage within walking distance of Prince Albert's CBD
