About Old Mac Daddy

The Airstream Trailer Park idea was originally inspired by a natural rural setting, so when The Daddy Long Legs Group discovered a little piece of heaven on a private farm in the apple-growing Elgin Valley, they went to work immediately. The Old Mac Daddy Park is the nostalgic camping holiday of childhood with added luxurious touches, designer trailer suites, slopes of whispering pines, lakes, endless nature-inspired activity, wholesome farm-grown food and all of this just a 40 minute drive from the Cape Town CBD.

The park consists of ten trailer suites with a separate lounge, viewing deck and en-suite bathroom. Each unit will accommodate two adults in the trailer and the lounge doubles up as a kiddies room. Another two Airstream trailers overlook the bottom dam and will accommodate two adults. Whilst these trailers are a little smaller, they are still en-suite and make the perfect nest for romantic couples or those wanting to contemplate life from a serene perspective. Daddy’s Villa, is a three bedroom forest cabin for larger families and wedding parties.

Old Mac Daddy has a communal area where guests can enjoy healthy, wholesome meals and treats throughout the day. All the ingredients used in the food are locally sourced, organic and free range wherever possible. A child friendly environment, kids will have an indoor-outdoor play area with daily activities and there is a full kids menu for children under eight years to choose meals from. These meals are free. A fenced in swimming pool keeps temperatures down and adventurous, and unsupervised little people out.

A brilliant venue for conferences, meetings, pow-wows, celebrations and weddings, The Old Mac Daddy can be rented entirely for functions or partially for meetings. A boardroom and conference area is located on the property. Wireless broadband is available for those needing to get some work done.

                          We had a lovely time. Will definitely go again. We were in Milks and Boon. Wonderfully decorated. The staff are very friendly. The scenery is magnificent.

                          We would really recommend this place for a weekend stay! One night is certainly not enough. Such a fun atmosphere with the themed trailers and swimming area - a real family spot. The trailers have an added on lounge and bathroom, so it's really spacious. The restaurant makes the best pizza I've ever had and the surroundings are beautiful.

                          What an amazing setting - so so beautiful and tranquil! The swimming pool was to die for and very very relaxing atmosphere. Our airstream trailer was lovely but in need of a bit upkeep, paint chipping, lights missing, speakers taken out leaving a giant hole and generally not kept in good repair. Restaurant food was great but staff a little slow and not on the ball as such. We arranged a picnic for two but it really wasn't up to scratch - the area was smelly and flies everywhere! We had to send food back was a bit of a disappointment for our anniversary. I would recommend this to anyone who...
