Host Information

Host review score 9.2

Our Guest House was built in 1880 and was the residence of the local Dutch Reformed church ministers for 60 years before being sold to a family who farmed vegetables on the fertile earth. It was renovated and became the first guest house in Riversdale. Since then the rooms have been modernised and en suite bathrooms added throughout.

Monica and I are both active in various ways, she is an excellent chef and provides all our own jams and preserves. My hobbies include ceramic restoration, wood turning and carving. Bird watching has been a passion for many years starting from the years we lived in Zululand.

Our guest house is situated in one of the oldest streets in Riversdale and all the neighboring houses have been lovingly restored. The Julius Gordon Centre which is also in Long Street has an outstanding collection of South African art works and items of historical value. Within walking distance of the town centre it is close to all businesses and yet has the feel of country living.
