Kabbelrus is a 116 year old beautifully restored Victorian establishment dating back two centuries. It is situated in the picturesque village of De Rust, at the foothills of the majestic Swartberg Mountain & at the entrance of Meiringspoort - the gateway to the Great Karoo.

There is a splash pool & green grass for relaxation. Restaurants & novelty shops are within walking distance & tourists have a choice of different walks in & around the village. One of the many attractions around De Rust is the world famous Cango Caves (35km) & the other the majestic Meiringspoort (2km). This quaint little town also forms part of the Route 62 that meanders from Cape Town through the wine valleys, Klein Karoo, Langkloof & beaches of Jeffreys Bay, Port Elizabeth & Addo National Park.
In Room Facilities:
Air Conditioning in all rooms. Fan. Electric Blankets. Kettle. Coffee & Tea. Water and milk provided. Small bar fridge. NO SMOKING IN ROOMS. View of the Garden and the Mountains.

Area Information:
The charming village of De Rust is situated at the foot of the Swartberg Mountains in the Little Karoo. De Rust is a scenic little town with beautiful Karoo houses situated amongst some steep Swartberg foothills. After climbing one of these hills in town, you will reach the top from where you will have spectacular views towards the majestic Swartberg and Kammanassie Mountains.

We like to think that the little Karoo has big offerings. You can reach Oudtshoorn and the Cango caves in 30 min drive. George and the rest of the Garden Route is all less than an hours drive away. The Swartberg pass and the very famous road to the Hell (Gamkaskloof) are both attractions for outdoor enthusiasts. Fishing, mountain biking, birdwathcing and wine tasting are some of the activities available.

Property Facilities:
There is a private splash pool & green grass for relaxation. Restaurants & novelty shops are within walking distance & tourists have a choice of different walks in & around the village.

Attractions:
* Meiringspoort:
With towering sandstone cliff walls, displaying exquisite rock formations, the 25km long Meiringspoort is indeed a wonder of nature. The tarred road winds along the Great River (Groot Rivier), crossing the gorge floor 25 times, and each ‘drift’ has a signposted name. Indigenous plant species flourish on these rocky surfaces, and birds, baboons and smaller mammals are prolific in the protected kloofs.
Take a slow drive to enjoy the scenery, stop and drink the water, pack a picnic and have a swim after a short hike to the Meiringspoort Waterfall. The well-cared for rest and picnic areas are safe and a pleasant way to enjoy the views. For the more active, enter the Meiringspoort Marathon that takes place in October every year.
* Red Hills:
Outside the town towards Oudtshoorn travellers can visit a national heritage site that consists of red- coloured open caves, known as the unique ‘Red Hills’. This is the only spot known in the world where the conglomerate stone Enon appears above the earth.
* Oude Muragie:
The winding and scenic farm road of Oude Muragie (gravel road) will take you to the Cango Caves, only 35km from De Rust.
* The Swartberg Pass:
The Swartberg Pass, a gravel road, was built by Thomas Bain more than 100 years ago, and reaches an altitude of 1,585 m above sea level. The pass links Prince Albert in the Great Karoo with Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo. Its breathtaking scenery demands that you get out of your car and experience the real beauty of mother nature – about one hour’s drive from De Rust. We recommend you drive the Circle Route from De Rust through Meiringspoort via Klaarstroom, to Prince Albert. Take the Swartberg Pass to Oudtshoorn, and back to De Rust. The route is 168km and can take 4-8 hours depending on how many stops you wish to make.

This was such a quaint little guesthouse. Loved everything about it. The decor, tranquility, cleanliness. Host made us feel at home.
Upgraded our room as I requested one with a shower, with no price change.
Would have stayed longer if I could..but will definitely return if on that route.

Heerlik, gasvry, uitstekend vir oornag.
Rustigheid van omgewing met berge as agtergrond skep 'n ontspanne verblyf.

Malvahuisie en die ander eiendomme het elkeen 'n unieke karakter. Die gasvrou en personeel is vriendelik, bedagsaam en dra 'n mens op hul hande. Die vertrekke is ruim, absoluut netjies en daar kort niks. Die tuine is pragtig en alles word mooi in stand gehou. 'n Mens voel sommer tuis. Die eiendom is 'n toevlug vir 'n reisiger. Dankie vir 'n heerlike verblyf!

Daar word duidelik baie aandag gegee aan detail en die huisie was met sorg versier. Al die fasiliteite wat ons kon nodig kry was beskikbaar. Die klein kombuisie was goed toegerus met al die benodigdhede, so ons kon maklik vir onsself kosmaak. Die badkamer het 'n stort en 'n heerlike losstaande bad en die bed was groot genoeg en baie gemaklik. Ons was baie beïndruk met die braai fasiliteit en die feit dat braaihout vir ons verskaf was. Ons was baie vriendelik ontvang en het heeltemal tuis en gemaklik gevoel. Die Malvahuisie bied uitstekende waarde vir geld en ons kan dit sterk aanbeveel.
