Imagine yourself with your feet up, sipping a coffee and staring at the play of shadows on the slopes of a beautiful mountain - because you can be there in no time at all! Mount Rose is a self-catering house in the picturesque town of Clarens, Free State, South Africa.

Mount Rose is rented out as a unit, not on a room-by-room basis. Therefore, even if you are only 2 people, you do not share the house with anybody else. However, if you pay for a couple, only one bedroom is left open for you - if you want to use all the bedrooms and bathrooms, you need to book and pay for 8 people.

We consequently charge for a minimum of 2 people per night, with every additional guest charged on a per person basis, up to a maximum of 8 guests in total. There is no charge for pets.

A plus point is that the house has a double lock-up garage with access directly into the house, so your vehicles are secure and do not have to be parked in the sun and rain. Also, you do not get wet running from the car to the house! Clarens often has hail storms, which has the potential to damage your vehicle severely if not under cover. We think this convenience provides the extra value that you will notice in our rates compared to some other establishments.

The house has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and one guest toilet with a hand basin. The smallest bedroom has 2 single beds and they have to share a bathroom with the second-largest bedroom for showering.

The living area is open-plan, divided into lounge, dining and kitchen. As you enter the front door you first move through the dining area with a table seating 6 comfortably but capable of seating 8. There is also a sideboard where place mats, cushions and candles are stored.

Next is the lounge with three large couches, side tables, central coffee table and TV cabinet (BRING YOUR OWN DSTV DECODER, CARD & CABLES). WiFi is free, and the access code is supplied in the house. There is a radio/CD player with a small selection of CDs.

The couches are arranged in front of a large wood-burning fireplace. Firelighters and matches are provided, and in winter, some wood. Books, magazines, information brochures and games are available in the living area.
Large double doors open from both the dining area and the lounge onto a spacious roofed verandah with unobstructed views of the Maluti mountains, Golden Gate peaks, Mount Horeb and the mountains in the Nature Reserve. A hexagonal patio table with 8 chairs are provided for guests to enjoy sundowners or alfresco meals (tablecloth in a drawer in the sideboard). There is a built-in braai (barbecue) with utensils in the kitchen drawers.

The large kitchen is equipped with double oven, 4 plate electric hob, microwave oven, kettle, 4-slice toaster, 2 coffee plungers, fridge/freezer combo, dishwasher and tumble dryer. The kitchen is provided with cutlery, crockery, pots, pans, and cooking and eating utensils. There is a selection of glasses. Although you do not get an actual welcome basket, the kitchen will be stocked with coffee (instant as well as grounds), tea, longlife milk, and sugar, as well as dishwashing liquid, cloths and scourers. Clarens sometimes runs out of water, so there are also a few 5 liter bottles of water next to the fridge for emergencies.

The double garage opens with a remote control and there are alarm touchpads in the garage as well as in the main bedroom (Peace). The code that deactivates the alarm will be provided in your letter or confirmation of the reservation or when you pick up the keys to the house. There is also parking for two more vehicles on the paving outside the garage.

Except for the entrance to the garage, the rest of the garden is fenced or walled, with three gates. Keys to the gates are inside the house and enables you to take a short cut when walking to town. The garden is small but lush with roses.

Small to medium dogs will enjoy the garden and will probably not be able to escape. Very large dogs may be able to jump over the fence but it is devil's fork and we have not had such an incident yet. Cats will definitely be able to squeeze through the gaps. Pets are welcome but not specifically catered for (there are some bowls, newspaper, and one pet blanket) and are brought to stay here completely at risk of, and under the responsibility of, the pet-owner.
We assume that pet-owners will control and protect their pets and also protect the property against damages caused by pets.

Legislation prohibits smoking inside guesthouses. Please smoke outside and take care to extinguish butts and matches.

Clarens is a beautiful quaint little town. It has everything you could possibility need, gorgeous gift shops, restaurants with delicious food and a craft brewery all set in the majestic mountains. It's the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Must visits : The Purple Onion, which is a deli kind of store. Clarens Brewery is a must, the beer & ciders are great and the food menu is limited but fantastic. Also Red Stone Distillery has a great range of gins and there cocktails are also great. The Art Cafe is fantastic restaurant if you have kids, as they have a nice big play area for them and the food is delicious. And there cakes are to die for.

Loved everything about Clarens - people, restaurants, cherry bier (amazing), shops. Only the road to get there was bad with lots of potholes at a stage.
