A very warm welcome awaits you at the family-run Irene B&B, where our main goal is to ensure you feel relaxed, comforted and cared for in a typical South African way. We provide safe accommodation, high standards and good service, adding that personal touch. Take note that breakfast is optional and not included in the rate.
On entering the premises, guests can park their vehicles (one vehicle per room) under shade netting in front of the B&B. For security reasons, guests have to phone us on arrival to gain access to the premises. Guests can rest assured that the high stone walls, electric fence, and security cameras make the property as safe as can be. Guests are also provided with a gate remote and a set of keys for the front door and their bedroom door (one set per room), allowing you to come and go as you please.
Once you’ve entered through the front door, you’ll find the communal area leading to the bedrooms. This is the kitchen/sitting/dining room area where guests can prepare basic meals, sit down to chat or simply enjoy their meals. This area has a fridge, a microwave oven, a small two-plate stove, a kitchen zinc, crockery and cutlery. Outside, guests can sit down and relax at a table with chairs, which is also the spot where smokers are allowed to light up.
The rooms all offer adequate accommodation with private bathrooms. The B&B – communal area, bedrooms and bathrooms – is a non-smoking area.
Room 1 has two single beds, wardrobe, TV, occasional chair, desk with chair, bed lamps, mirrors, towels, freshly laundered bedding, an en suite bathroom with shower, basin and toilet, and basic toiletries. This room has a delightful view of the main garden.
Room 2 has a queen size bed, side tables with bed lamps, an occasional chair, desk with chair, TV, and built-in wardrobe. It also has an en suite bathroom (5m²) similar to Room 1’s. Room 1 and Room 2 are each 14m².
Room 3 The upstairs room has a king size bed (which can convert into two single beds) and its own private bathroom. There is a second small bedroom ideal for one adult or child; when utilising both bedrooms we refer to them collectively as the ‘family suite’. The bigger room is fully equipped with a television, desk with chair, two occasional chairs, small fridge, microwave oven, hospitality tray, hair dryer, freshly laundered bedding and towels.
All rooms can be booked for either single or double occupancy – rates apply. For your own safety, only guests who have booked are allowed on the property – no visitors unless by prior arrangement and consent.
Guests are more than welcome to take a dip in the swimming pool behind the stone wall towards the back of the property, where a table with chairs is available for use by the guests as well. We do provide swimming towels – feel free to ask!
Karin-marié is your caring host; always willing to assist you and help in whatever way she can. On arrival you’ll get a quick self-help tour of the facilities and your room from your friendly host. Paulina is our very friendly housekeeper, who keeps everything sparkling clean and services the rooms making your stay as comfortable as possible
Please note that no visitors are allowed on the premises. If you want to meet a friend or colleagues then the Village Bistro is the nearest restaurant to get together - as well as numerous other restaurants very near to us.
We do have dogs, though not aggressive (more over-friendly) they sometimes want to meet guests although we try our best to keep them out of the guests' area.
Please inform us of any problem in the rooms or on the premises, anything not in working condition, or if they accidentally break something. Keep noise levels down and be considerate when in the parking area, and towards other guests.
