Situated on the N2 National Road midway between Cape Town and George on the scenic Garden Route, lies Swellendam, the third oldest town in South Africa.

This little flat roofed Cape Georgian style cottage with its moulded parapet, was the preferred style of the Muslim artisans of the time. It is reminiscent of the typical Bo-Kaap (Upper Cape Town) houses as they still exist today. The vertical panelled front door with fanlight replaced the stable door of the Cape Dutch style. Typically this fanlight is also the only window of the "voorhuis" (front room).

There are 2 bedrooms, main bedroom have an en-suite bathroom with a Victorian bath. There is also a second bathroom. The outside flatlet has twin beds and shower bathroom which is an en suite. Bo-Kapie sleeps up to eight people and is fully equipped for self-catering including bedding.
There is an open hearth in the living room/kitchen with plenty of wood provided.

The attractive "net curtain" on the small Victorian sash window in front of the house was painted by the well known Swellendam artist, Jan du Toit.

A romantic little hideaway, the cottage oozes charm and nostalgia. Furnishing is simple with pieces aged by life. It is centrally situated from museums, restaurants, shops, golf-course, hiking trails, Marloth and Bontebok Nature reserves etc. With so much to see and do in and around Swellendam, Bo-Kapie invites you for a longer stay.
