Worth a visit, clean and comfortable with extras like aircon, small pool to cool off in and exceptionally welcoming and friendly staff. Although there is a restaurant on the premises it is not always open and a room service menu would have been great.

We are enjoying a relaxing and comfortable 5 night stay. Candy has been very hospitable - port in the room; underfloor heating; good quality linen; all in beautiful surroundings. Can really recommend Housemartin Guest Lodge.

Stayed at Housemartin Lodge on our way to Addo Elephant Park. This was a very functional, clean and homey place and the owner, Candy, was very helpful at both check in and came in early to prepare a hot meal before we left the next day. De Rust is very small with only one restaurant open for dinner.

Had a really great stay, very relaxed and comfortable- only comment is that the road is quit noisy specially with the bikes in the morning and think there should be a small roomservice menue with drinks and snacks. Will come back Thanks

Excellent stay & welcome. Bill is an engineer so everything works with extras like power adaptors all wired in. Wine on verandah watching wild birds. Good breakfast. Local waterfall well worth a visit, stunning drive. Characterful town. Good homemade pizza in local pub on Friday. Little Karoo so different and interesting. Perfect half way stop between Franschhoek & Shamwari/Addo. A... More

They did and we were shown to a wonderful guestroom which was perfectly clean and had a really nice feel to it. It had a veranda and we... More

We enjoyed our stay with Dave Martin for the one night. However It can be noisy due to the proximity of town and traffic. This is a nice period home to stay in, with lots of history of the area. Thanks dave
