About De Kuilen Country House

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.


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.

Verified reviewexcellent

My Secret Garden Living in a busy city is always a draining task, i was pleasantly surprised however, when i discovered this magical little piece of heaven hidden in the middle of the chaos. My husband and i were able to steal away a few days of peace and happiness in the forest like environment of the De Kuilen Country House, complete with friendly staff, welcoming and intellectual hosts and delicious food equivalent to any five star restaurant. We were woken up by sounds of nature and enjoyed discovering the breathtaking garden view from our suit. In addition to natural forestation, we enjoyed the decor which complimented the surroundings well, beautiful prints and textures, perfect for snuggling to an afternoon movie. I highly advise this establishment to many of my peers and thank Anne for the personal touch and constant communication with me in the month leading up to the trip, she was extremely hands on with colour preferences, menu planning and special requests to ensure my husband and i were well satisfied and happy. In-light of our experience we fully intend on returning soon.
