A little gem in Calitzdorp!
Megan Parsley, South Africa - 31 March 2016
We were so lucky to have found Welgevonden Guest House, it is an absolute gem!
Our hosts were warm and accommodating and our room was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and stayed on a little longer to enjoy the beautiful garden and surrounds.

Thank you Briette for a lovely stay!

Wegevonden is a treat of a place to stay. Comfortable and attractive rooms with unfussy décor, lost of shade (not to mention the pool), delicious breakfast, and a warm welcome.

Our overnight stay in Welgevonden was just divine - the sense and reality of the history of the homestead where we stayed -   its natural, farming surrounds, with lucerne lands and tractor and old, huge trees - lovely organic and shady garden - such a sweet welcome, making sure we were happy with everything  - a most delicious pool with just-the-right-temperature- water -for the exceptionally hot, dry days - and  a lovely breakfast to see us into the morning. Thank you!
Lovely relaxing stay over
Alwine Pretorius, South Africa - 19 May 2015
We stayed over at Welgevonden Guest House on Tuesday 12 May 2015 as well as on 18 May 2015 on our return journey. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bedroom decorated with taste.The hosts are very welcoming - we were offered something to drink on arrival. A tasty breakfast was served in the mornings in the breakfast room in the main house while we had a lovely view on the garden and the cows grazing in the fields below the house.We shall definitively stay over here again.
Good, old style hospitality
Roland Bergh, South Africa - 04 January 2015
We used two rooms at the guesthouse and found it very clean and comfortable. The wooden floors and antique furniture gave a very rustic feel. We had a scrumptious breakfast and our every need was well-looked after.
Excellent stay!

First class b&b in Calitzdorp
Jonty Driver, England - 24 April 2014
My wife and I, and our son and his family, stayed a night in Welgevonden Guest House in April 2014; the absence of the owners, the Barrys, made no difference to the quality of the service. We have stayed there three times before and recommend it unreservedly. It is clean, comfortable, attractive, unpretentious.
Mike Larsen, South Africa - 19 March 2014
A lovely stay. Accommodation was great and the owner so friendly and helpful. The breakfast served on the outside verandah was very special. Loved the sound of the church bells from Calitzdorp across the farm.
Enjoyable stay

An absolute gem! Wonderful warm welcome, very comfortable with so many little details attended to.We enjoyed the shady stoep and swimming pool on a hot summer's afternoon.
Nice and friendly stay
Edith Weiss, South Africa - 08 December 2013
You can tell your friends, that this stay is o.k. Friendly, clean, quiet, good dinner and breakfast and the nice garden with the pool. 1 night is not enough to see all things at Calitzdorp.
Very good
