About Us

The Viljoen family, originally from Pretoria , Gauteng, fell in love with Clanwilliam and bought the grand old Victorian lady at the end of historic Park Street in January 2015 and their love for both is growing stronger by the day. The lovingly restored and converted Victorian house is a truly hidden gem worth searching for. The house, over a hundred years old, boosts thick sturdy clay walls, high ceilings, old Oregon doors, original sash windows and shutters. The numerous antique pieces which were collected over the years, paintings and family heirlooms all found a special place here. This serene retreat only takes a maximum of ten guests and is personally run by the Viljoen family and assisted by their loyal staff, Audrey and Annie.
