Haus Holzapfel

Your German hosts, Marion and Zwingli, have created a charming home with a beautiful garden for the discerning guest who is looking for luxurious self-catering or B&B accommodation in a "home away from home' haven, in a secure and peaceful setting. We are located in one of the most beautiful areas in the Karoo.

Honeymooners and those seeking something special, will delight in the exclusivity that the suites offer. Haus Holzapfel offers two sunny and bright suites, which are beautifully decorated and furnished. Every suite has its own entrance, small lounge area, DStv, wireless Internet, air-conditioning, underfloor heating, plug adapters, a fully-equipped kitchenette with crockery, cutlery, glassware, fridge, microwave, kettle and coffee and tea making facilities.

The bathrooms are modern in style with a toilet, basin and a shower with natural slate tiles. Towels and toiletries are provided. Every suite accommodates two to four people. One suite has two German single beds and a large sleeper coach. The other suite has a German king size bed and a spacious sleeper couch. Our guests sleep on 100% cotton bed linen, as well as anti-allergic duvets and pillows. The newly opened en-suite double room has an extra length double bed and accommodates two adults.

The patio leads you out into the beautiful garden and to the saltwater swimming pool. Enjoy a self-serve Continental breakfast or magnificent sundowners in the privacy of your own patio, whilst listening to the birdsong and revel in the peace and tranquility that the surroundings offer. From here you can also see the Swartberge on the horizon.

For families up to eight people, we offer our newly built Karopa self-catering house with three luxury bedrooms and two beautiful bathrooms. The kitchen has granite tops and there is a dining room with a leather couch. The house is fully air-conditioned, there is a big plasma TV with DStv, Wi-Fi, barbecue and secure parking. The house is just 1.5 km away from the main guest house.

    "We loved the trampoline for kids to help get rid of the extra energy after travelling in the car the whole day... The working aircon were much appreciated in the cold while the ice cubes in the fridge an extra bonus. Thank you very much, our 2nd time staying there and definitely going back!!"

  • "A rest after a long day"

    17 April 2017

    "Marion is a lovely hostess. Unfortunately, as we arrived we were told the geyser wasn't working and we were upgraded to one of the new apartments. There was no breakfast option, which I wasn't aware of as I booked as a B&B. The upgraded apartment was a bit uncomfortable - the curtains are unlined and very see through, so having a light on is not an option unless you want to feel a bit exposed. I think it is quite new, but I was expecting to be at the main house which sounds a lot nicer for what I was wanting. However, this shouldn't put anyone off - we all have different needs and expectations. Certainly very lovely people."
