About Aanhuizen Guest House

Aanhuizen Guest House lies at the foot of the Langeberg mountains in Swellendam. We are 2 hours from Cape Town and 2 hours from George. Swellendam is the 3rd oldest magisterial district in South Africa.
Swellendam forms part of the Cape-Overberg meander. Overberg means 'over the mountain' The journey to the 'Overberg' three centuries ago was a bone crunching one by wagon - but well worth it for the hospitality and warmth you received from the people of the Overberg. It is truly a haven of peace & tranquility.
Enjoy our old fashioned South African hospitality in this superior Guest House. Tom & Olwyn, your hosts will make you welcome. This is the ideal place to relax as you take in the stunning unspoilt views of the Langeberg mountains. With plenty to do and see in Swellendam be sure not to cut your stay too short.
All our rooms offer percale cotton bedlinen, soft fluffy towels and are en-suite with separate entrances for peace and privacy.
A delicious breakfast is served next to the swimming pool or on the lawns in summer.
Allow us to make your stay in Swellendam an unforgettable experience.

                                          Very good, we enjoyed our stay very much. Would definitely recommend Aanhuizen to friends wishing to travel to Swellendam.

                                          Our stay was beautiful. Unfortunately, there were very severe rains just before we arrived, therefore some of the rooms suffered from water. But this was given as a fact and nobody could alter it. The welcome was very friendly, and we received every help we asked for. Regarding the rooms, one could note that they are already some years old, but more important, they are equipped by a loving hand - we enjoyed it! The breakfast was great. Thank you for all, we had a great time at your place - and in SA in total.Roland, UIrike, Katrin and Felix
