Swellendam Guest House
and Luxury Accommodation
Going from Cape Town over the mountains you enter the Overberg region, a quiet agricultural area bordered by beautifull wild coasts and rough mountains. In this region, at the beginning of the Garden route the charming town of Swellendam is located.
At the top of Swellendam's main road, Voortrekker Street, you see the crown jewel of the towns' legendary, beautiful buildings: the perfectly maintained Dutch Reformed Church.
As you continue you enter the core of the most historic of the Western Cape towns: The Drostdy Complex, once the seat of an independent republic. Behind this building Helpi & Freerk Brandsma own and run an Inn or Guesthouse-restaurant with the magical name of Roosje van de Kaap.
The main building of Roosje van de Kaap was once a part of the Drostdy. Here we created an award winning restaurant.
Welcome to Roosje van de Kaap!
