About Die Malvahuisie

Malva Huisie is situated in the charming village of De Rust, at the foot of the Swartberg Mountains in the Little Karoo. De Rust is a scenic little town, with beautiful Karoo houses situated amongst some steep Swartberg foothills. De Rust is also surrounded by deep green valleys, large and fascinating rock formations, many kinds of animal and bird life, rivers, streams, farms, typical Karoo vegetation, and interesting people.

We invite you to spend time here and share some of the country goodies and relaxed atmosphere which is not to be found in city life. Oudtshoorn and the Cango Caves are just a 30-minute drive away, with the Swartberg Pass and the very famous road to Gamkaskloof both attractions for outdoor enthusiasts. Fishing, mountain biking, bird watching and wine tasting are just some of the activities available nearby.

Children under 13 years are unfortunately not allowed at the establishment.

Loved the old world charm. Riaan and Sjaan were very hospitable. The garden is beautiful with a lovely view.The only negative is the noise of trucks coming past but it is a National Road so understand that nothing can be done. De Rust is a pretty little town and Meiringspoort Pass was the highlight.

The Sunbird unit is well suited for a family of 4. Two rooms and bathroom were neat and clean. The hosts give personal attention to guests and the details of the unit. Kettle and fridge available in room and the hosts made their own kitchen available for use. Quaint cottage lifestyle with a view of the mountains. Establishments response:Thank you for your stay at the Malvahuisie... you were excellent guests ... and such good behaved children.... The buzzyyyy one stole my heart... and the quiet one touched my heart with her little note/letter she left me. Thank you for your good review ......
