The place was very clean, beds comfy and the facilities looked very well maintained. As part of our experience we were treated to a delicious traditional dinner and breakfast. The...

Stayed for 2 nights here to explore the area and we could not have been made more welcome by Theresa and Jan. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean with very efficient air conditioning. The gardens and pool area are tranquil and relaxing. Delicious homemade quiche for breakfast. On Jan's recommendation we drove over the Meringspoort pass and back over...

We had a very comfortable and peaceful stay in a lovely bedroom, and our hosts were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. There is proper ground coffee provided in the bedrooms, with a plunger - enough to make me choose one guesthouse over another. There were lovely birds in the garden, including a weaver making his nest in a tree a few...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our lodge. We are always delighted with positive comments, but even more delighted if customers suggest some improvements.

I stayed her for two nights with family over the last two days. What a special place! It is neat, well run with pool, honesty bar, air conditioning, centrally located and safe parking. And great hosts Jan and Theresa. Must be the best place to stay in De Rust.

Stayed here whilst on a trip along the Garden Route. Jan and Theresa made us most welcome. Rooms are very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast excellent (especially the freshly baked scones!). Certainly a place to recommend.

Our stay was wonderful, Theresa and Jan are excellent hosts, the rooms are beautifully done up and very spacious. I can most certainly recommend Housemartin Guest Lodge, it is well situated with many lovely restaurants within walking distance or you can simply relax at the pool and enjoy a glass of wine. There is ample safe parking.
