If Prince Albert is off-the-beaten-track is, then Brakdakkie is a back alley of that track. You won't find a listing of this tastefully and uniquely decorated guesthouse in any guide book. Brakdakkie is situated on the border of the settlement (about 4 blocks away from the center), In a lovely surrounding of farmland and the wilderness of the karoo. You have a splendid view of the mountains from the cottage.
Normally since we are traveling with a 1 year old we usually look for something with restaurants within the range of our babyphone. The cottages are fully selfcatering, unfortunately we arrived on a sunday late in the afternoon. The owner Lance showed us the rooms and we felt at home immediately and didn't want to look any further.
The interior is functional-creative where very old items have found a new life; the chamberpot held the toiletroll, an old cast-iron stove doubled as a barbeque, weathered windowframes served as headposts of the bed and so on.
Our little one especially fancied hammering on the Underwood-black typewriter, an item she would never see in our household for sure. The bed slept lovely and we woke up with the sound of the roosters greeting another sunny day in the karoo.
The little private garden has a lovely grape-vine shaded spot to have an easy breakfast outside; a real treat. Highly recommended!
