About Gariep Gardens

Gariep Gardens Guest House is located in the Gariep Dam holiday village and is approximately halfway between Cape Town and Johannesburg. It is only a five minutes’ drive from the N1 Highway. Gariep Dam Village was voted tourist town of the year in 2010.

Gariep Gardens consists of three very private, yet different units. Each unit has its own parking bay and access to the fully enclosed pool and lapa area. The units have their own private lapas and braai areas. We certainly believe that Gariep Gardens has the best that Gariep Dam has to offer. It is the ideal place to break your journey and enjoy the most beautiful surroundings.

Gariep Gardens is part of the SunRose Group of Guesthouses. Its name is appropriate due to its lush gardens, vines, fruit trees, stunning pool and lapas. We offer comfort, style and privacy in lush gardens.

The accommodation is ideal for the weary travellers or those wanting to break away from the city rush. Take a minute to look up at the clear night skies, gaze at the trillions of stars and see the Milky Way. Hear the silence and realize that this is truly a special place.

A comfortable, well equipped cottage suitable for an overnight stay. It was neat, tidy and clean with a comfortable bed. The directions need to be updated however.

used this as our stop over on the trip back from CPT. Overall very comfortable, the shower using a low pressure solar geyser made it a bit weak but was ok. dstv would have been great. Ronnie was very friendly and helpful.

Most pleasant stay. Clean , comfortable  (home away from home) and a fruit garden any health conscious person would wish to have.  Will definately visit and plan a long weekends stay with friends.
