The Guest House has a luxurious, inviting and warm ambiance. Co-owners, Leo-né and Ruan du Preez were brought up in this house by their parents, Isobel and Leon.
The establishment of the Guest House followed the legacy of the one and only Isobel. Isobel was a woman of stature with a love for life. She was a mother – not only to her children, a friend and a great cook. It was this love for people and life that inspired Leo-né and Ruan to open this beautiful Guest House.
Every part of the house contains her impeccable taste, like her love for perfumes hanging on the door of each room. Those who knew her will remember her memorable slogan: “Ons gaan nog eendag lank slaap.” – meaning: “One day we will sleep long, but for now let us live life to the full.” The Italian words Bella Vita meaning “Beautiful life”; how else could the life of such an astounding mother be celebrated and remembered by her children, than to let it live on in the rooms of this house.
Everyone who has entered this house left as friends. May you too find your home away from home here, and may you make every experience worthwhile. Soli Deo Gloria.
