About Gentle Presence

Gentle Presence is one of the oldest Sandstone houses in Clarens built in the 1900's and is a quaint and cosy heritage home probably best described as a homely cottage. It offers self-catering for 4 and has exceptional views of the Rooiberge and Maluti Mountains.

Gentle Presence is thought to have been the stables of a larger farm where farmers gathered for Nagmaal (Holy Communion). Due to the exceptional views of the Rooiberge including Mt Horeb and the Malutis, the home was originally given the name Kyk Die Berge in the 1960’s. At the time it was the only multi-storey structure in Clarens and the locals affectionately called it “Die Flets”. It has a charming history which we would love to share with you.

There is a large patio where you can braai whilst enjoying the views. The patio leads directly into the open plan lounge and dining room which has a TV with Premium DSTV. The kitchen is fully equipped with cutlery, crockery, toaster, microwave, four plate gas stove with gas oven, pots and pans, fridge etc and is stocked with limited basics on arrival such as tea, coffee, sugar, milk etc. There is a separate toilet with a basin on this level.

Wooden stairs lead to the upper level where the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are found. Both bedrooms have wooden floors, built in wardrobes and patio doors onto a shared balcony.

Gentle Presence is situated about 300mtrs from the main town square where you will find a huge variety of shops, restaurants and art galleries. It is close enough to walk but far away from the noise of festivals to still provide you with peace when you want to relax.

The hosts Pat and Colin were super friendly, the environment and view was awsome for a quiet and peaceful break away.
