Rouxwil is perfectly positioned in the middle of nowhere. We say "perfectly" because nowhere just happens to be in the middle of everywhere. You couldn't wish for a better, more relaxing base from which to explore the Overberg region, with Hermanus, the Winelands, Greyton and Cape Agulhas all less than an hour away. This enables you to take wonderful day trips, returning to Rouxwil in time for sun-downers and snacks on your personal veranda while looking out on the Eland and Spring buck grazing in the plain game camp.
In Room Facilities:
Each room has a well stocked honesty bar, tea and coffee facilities, a Nespresso Coffee Maker, a little kitchenette, binoculars, hair dryer, soft white cotton gowns, slippers, and electric blankets in winter. Every room has hot & cold air-conditioners, a mini Hi-Fi with a CD player. A swimming pool with therapy jets are there to make you even more rejuvenated, or you can just laze around the pool on the wooden deck with an ice cold glass of champagne - read and relax! If you feel like company, come through to the main lounge where an open log fire, lots of interesting books, invite you to sit back and simply relax. Each morning you will be treated to a full South African breakfast in the comfort of the farmhouse kitchen. You can decide to sample the local fruit or indulge in a traditional cooked breakfast - or both!
Thys and O'nel are both avid wine connoisseurs and will spoil you with sundowner drinks and snacks, either somewhere in nature, or on your patio. At night guests enjoy pre-dinner drinks, with lively and interesting conversations, and have a gourmet dinner together in the main farmhouse. Here you will experience the South African lifestyle, excellent home-cooked meals, or traditional fare around an open fire on the veranda and personalized attention - all this makes for an unforgettable experience and fond memories!
