About Gentle Presence

Built in the early 1900’s from Sandstone this quaint and cosy cottage offers self-catering for 4. It has exceptional views of Mount Horeb, Maluti Mountains and parts of the Rooiberge of Golden Gate and is a mere 300mtrs from the town square where you will find a variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants and art galleries.

Wooden stairs lead upstairs to the 2 bedrooms, each with access to a private bathroom. The bedrooms open onto the shared balcony which offers superb views of the garden and the mountains.

The large patio offers an outdoor area to relax and braai whilst enjoying the views and the large garden. The open plan lounge and dining room is equipped with a TV (DSTV) and a few board games. 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.

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-story structure in Clarens and the locals affectionately called it “Die Flets”.

It has been declared a heritage home and has a charming history which we would love to share with you.

Golf: Clarens Golf Estate is a mere 2km's from the property.

Family friendly: The patio offers guests perfect views while watching children play in the large garden or having a braai. The outdoor fire pit is very popular for roasting marshmallows.

      We really enjoyed our stay at Gentle Presence. From the moment we first made contact with the host, Pat, she was very friendly and informative. The check in was thorough and we were spoiled with chocolates from the hosts for our anniversary. During our stay Pat made sure that we felt at home. The accommodation is clean and neat and the bed super comfortable. Lovely view from the balcony. Gentle presence is within a short walk of the square. Wish that we could have stayed longer!

      Pat and Colin are most welcoming hosts, supplying wonderful titbits of information before our arrival and during our arrival. The house had everything we needed. Little touches that are not usually found at other similar accommodation were an abolute delight.

      We had such a wonderful stay at Gentle Presence. Our hosts, Pat and Colin, were so welcoming and helpful, we wanted for nothing. The house has such character and is so comfortable, it really feels like home away from home. The kids also had such a good time in the spacious garden! We will absolutely be back!
