Guest House De Rust
Gat Guest House, a farmstead and historic monument, is situated in the
valley of Middelplaas ("the farm in the middle"), near De Rust. It has been
in the hands of numerous generations of the Schoeman family since the early
1800s. Characteristics of the old homestead, such as the paint of German
origin on the interior walls of the "voorkamer" (lounge), the original
architectural form of the house and the picturesque environment have ensured
that many a South African film has been shot here.
Supper is enjoyed with your host and hostess, Anton and Susan, in the "voorhuis" (dining room) or under the pergola and under the starry night skies. You will be treated on traditional "boerekos," regional dishes that Anton and Susan themselves prepare. The guest rooms in the outbuildings, previously the school where the Schoeman children were educated, the cart shed turned winepress, or even an ox wagon used by earlier generations, have been suitably furnished to give you a unique experience of the outdoors.
*All rooms equipped with air-conditioners.
A visit to the farm and the daily routine, where you get to know the ostrich with its fatal kick, and a visit to the labourers and their families ensure that you get to know the people and life on a typical Klein Karoo farm. You can also relax at the special pool of Die Gat, with its beautiful view of the majestic surroundings.
