About Shady Acres Guesthouse

Shady Acres is situated in the heart of the beautiful Mooi River Estate area. It is five minutes from the university, hospitals, city centre and all major sports facilities.

We offer four large single, double and family rooms. Each room is furnished with antiques and has an en-suite bathroom, a private entrance, secure shaded parking and DStv. There are tea and coffee-making facilities in rooms, with fridges in certain rooms only.

Breakfast is available on request and there are braai facilities available in the garden. All the rooms overlook a large shady garden with beautiful trees, abundant bird life and a view over the adjacent fields.

Shady Acres is a haven for the nature lover who enjoys being woken by bird song and who likes to take long walks while watching sheep and horses grazing in the distance.

Was baie verbaas met ons aankoms hoe skoon en netjies die kamer was. Ons het defnitief meer gekry as wat ons verwag het. Sal beslis weer van hulle gebruik maak in die toekoms.
