Guesthouse Guest House Esterer
10 Baron Van Reede Street, 6625 Oudtshoorn, South Africa – Great location - show map
Guesthouse Esterer is a precious gem of Victorian times, located in the heart of Oudtshoorn, the capital of the Little Karoo. The semi desert is well known for its prosperous agriculture, ostrich farming and breath-taking landscapes. The guesthouse was founded by the Esterer family in 2009. Originally from Austria, the Esterer‘s are already successfully managing several tourism establishments in Oudtshoorn since 1994. The family renovated and decorated the former residential building with love to detail. The stylish interior of the spacious rooms with its wooden floors, doors and window frames is creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. The private balconies overlooking the historic centre of Oudtshoorn are inviting for a relaxed reading, accompanied by a superb Karoo wine. All rooms are fitted with on suite bathrooms, shower, air conditioning, Satellite-TV, free Wifi and are leading either to a terrace or a balcony. Secure parking is free for the guests. During the scorching hot summers in Oudtshoorn the saltwater sparkling swimming pool in a secluded courtyard is the favourite place for chilling.
Right next door to Guesthouse Esterer guests will find the Montague House where breakfast will be served either in the Garden during summer or alongside a cosy fireplace in the cold winter days in a fantastic Art Nouveau breakfast room, built in 1908 and today a National Heritage site. The sandstone building is a one of the several well preserved “feather palaces” in Oudtshoorn, built from the wealth created by the export of ostrich feathers to the Fin de Siècle in Europe at the end of the 19th Century. Montague House is famous for superb luncheon & wining, fine Austrian pastry, excellent homemade ice cream as well a large variety of South African and Austrian Coffee specialities. The lush garden with its blooming Jacaranda trees is a very popular place in town. Furthermore Montague House is offering luxury shopping in Esterer´s Exotic Leather Boutique as well as offering the Klein Karoo’s only pure Photography exhibition’s featuring amazing Art of some of South Africa’s most accomplished Photographers. The guesthouse is not far away from the many places of interest Oudtshoorn and the Little Karoo has to offer. For instance one of the world's great natural wonders.
