About Ouma Se Huis

Ouma se Huis is an original farmhouse where one of the pioneer families of the Boegoeberg Water Scheme has lived since the 1940's. It has been lovingly restored to a self-catering facility for a relaxed and quiet farm stay. The farm still belongs to the family and it produces grapes and lucerne.

Ouma se Huis is situated approximately 75 km from Upington and 45 km from Groblershoop on the way to Namibia, Augrabies, Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park or Namakwaland. It has two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and two bedrooms which share a bathroom. Clean linen, soft towels, tea, coffee, milk and home-made rusks are supplied. The comfortable lounge includes a TV and a fireplace. There is a dining room and a well equipped kitchen for preparing your own food or to enjoy a sociable braai at the outside braai facility. Lots of wood is supplied.

The property is only 500 m from the Orange River where you can have a picnic under the trees, fish, canoe or just enjoy the tranquil surrounds. You can also cool down in the dam on a hot day. Relax in the large garden on a beautiful evening with large trees and lawns with ample space for children to play and enjoy the outdoors. The house can be rented for individuals or as a whole for a family.

                  We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The guest house is crisp clean and very comfortably furnished.Linda and Koos made us feel very welcomed. She prepared and excellent dinner for us on request as well as "padkos" for our trip the following day. The farm is beautiful and we relaxed on a lovely stoep. We were a group of eight and there were enough rooms and bathrooms to accommodate us all.The Orange river flows through the farm and my husband enjoyed a few minutes of fishing. I can highly recommend Ouma se huis.

                  Great stay in this lovely old house with tons of character. It was clean and well equipped. Also had a warm welcome from both Linda and Piet. Thanks, we will be back some day.

                  It was a pleasant stay for the one night that we have been there. Kobus and Linda welcomed us very friendly and were very helpful. It is relaxing and quiet. A tasty meal was waiting for us which we appreciated after a long drive.
