About Die Waenhuis Guest House

Set in elegant Caledon Street under the shade of age-old oak trees in a landscaped park like garden, this historic 170-year-old residence awaits you to surprise and spoil you with its charm and relaxed hospitality. The magnificent lounge with original yellow wood floors and ceilings also features a Victorian fireplace where guests can gather around the fire on cool rainy days.


The original homestead offers seven cosy bedrooms, furnished in traditional style with antiques and period pieces in character with the house. Whereas the second adjacent house offers four more rooms with an earthy touch and opening to the pool area and garden.

All rooms differ in character and include heaters, underfloor heating, a fire place or air-conditioning, tea and coffee trays, a carafe of sherry, TV with MNet (DSTV in some) and WiFi.


Our luxury breakfasts are served in a sunny cheerful breakfast room with an old Dover stove and views of the lush garden or on the patio. It includes a full English breakfast as well as a buffet table with various fruits, yogurts, bread and pastries and cold meat and cheeses.


Die Waenhuis Guest House is ideally situated in the heart of George for both corporate guests and tourists who visit the Garden Route, Oudtshoorn, Mossel Bay and Knysna.

George also offers a lovely Botanical Garden, as well as forest and mountain hikes and a selection of some of the best golf courses in the country. The George Golf Course is very close by.


Local tours, power van trips up the mountain, and the Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe steam train trips can all be arranged. Surfing, diving, fishing, paragliding and hang gliding are some other special attractions.

Verified reviewexcellent

You find many nice guesthouses and then there are those that are extra special. Die Waenhuis is a gem and just so lovely and special. There was not a single negative aspect. The location is central yet quiet and pretty. The house and gardens are beautiful and lovingly maintained. The rooms are stunning and luxuriously decorated. From sherry on arrival to fluffy white towels, superb white linen, a giant shower in the family room and a delicious breakfast - you can be sure we will be back!

This is by far the most beautiful place to stay, clean, tidy and so comfortable. If you are visiting George you have to stay at the Waenhuis. Definitely a hidden treasure. The owners takes care of your every need and the food and service is above average. The fact that they are always full with come-back customer is testimony of their excellent service. I have gone back already!!!
