About Malva Huisie

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. Breakfast is a continental breakfast.

We loved our stay at the Malva Huisie. The peaceful setting & the friendly reception of our hosts, making us feel totally welcome & at home was special. Very comfortable accommodation, with everything you need. We will be back!

We had a very pleasant and peaceful stay over at this quaint little cottage and will in future make this our point of call when next we overnight in De Rust. The cottage has recently been revamped but has retained that old world style. There has been an incredible amount of attention to detail in the fittings of the cottage. There is good on-premises parking.The owners were extremely friendly and made sure that we were comfortable.

“Malva Huisie” a small little cottage with a BIG Heart. Warm welcomes, peaceful atmosphere and definitely a must-stay-over on your bucket list. This small town (De Rust) and small cottage is filled with history, stories to be told and allows you time to unwind. It pulls you out of your everyday living and forces you to slow down and get rid of all your stress.  A must…a must….a must! And the Pink Elephant Restaurants fish and chips and curry fish was divine! Thank you “Malva Huisie” for sharing your peacefulness with us!
