Overview of De Kloof Luxury Estate

Situated just a short walk from the old, historic part of Swellendam, De Kloof Luxury Estate is in a lovely, leafy residential street and opens onto an enormous garden with beautiful views of the Langeberg Mountains. Originally built in 1801, the Cape Dutch guesthouse has been carefully renovated by the owners and stylishly decorated with antiques and artefacts from the couple’s travels to the East and time spent living in West Africa.

Spend your days exploring the area, practicing your golf swing at the guesthouse driving range, or relaxing beside the 12m swimming pool. In the evenings, you can enjoy complimentary wine tastings. Head out along the scenic Route 62 to experience the Langeberg Mountains and the route’s stunning wineries. Organise a day trip to the Bontebok National Park, or play a round of golf on the nearby picturesque Swellendam golf course.

        De Kloof Luxury Estate was beautiful and we were thrilled with our rooms in the old carriage house as well as the beautiful dinner delivered to our room late in the evening. We had arrived late and tired and our host kindly brought dinner to us, which was so beautiful we photographed it!

        De Kloof – Upon arriving at this gem in Swellendam, I thought to myself that the owners are going to have to evict me from the premises. I am surprised that I did not barricade myself in my room (Roy and Marjolein put me in the Loft space in the annex building that is separated from the main building). Earlier I vowed not to rank one property over the other, but a small confession: De Kloof ranks the highest of them all. The Loft suite I stayed in is a perfect apartment for a single person like myself. I was completely, utterly, happily at home. Everything about De Kloof is spectacular; the property reflects Roy and Marjolein’s expert attention to detail and exceptional taste in design, room layout, quality craftsmanship, colors, furniture, bedding/lines, towels, etc. EVERYTHING. Simply … the best.
