Phil & Linda
Gumtree GH is located on a riverbank with a view of the Swartberg Mountains in the distance. We are in the centre of town, only a 2 minute walk from the nearest restaurants. We offer plenty of space, but with the convenience of being located within walking distance of restaurants and town attractions.
Phil & Linda arrived at Gumtree in early 2011 after 25 years spent living around the world in Germany, Asia and USA. Linda hails from England, Phil grew up in Cape Town. They both love to travel and enjoy sharing travel experiences with guests at the bar. Guests at Gumtree have the convenience of being in the centre of town, but have a sense of space from the property with views over the river towards the mountains. There are many places to relax in the mature garden, at the pool, or in the pub.
Oudtshoorn is the largest town in the Klein (Little) Karoo but it retains a small town feel where people are friendly and eager to assist. The surrounding countryside is very beautiful with the highlight being Swartberg Pass and Meiringspoort which has spectacular rock formations.
