Overview

Our 500 ha property, which is now a Stewardship Contract Nature Reserve, is situated 40km south-east of Oudtshoorn on the southern slopes of the Kammanassie Mountains.

The guest-house is a comfortable and spacious self contained house consisting of three bedrooms each with en suite bathrooms, a lounge, a dining room, a large verandah and a fully equipped kitchen. The Kammanassie room has a double bed, the Swartberg room has two single beds, and the Outeniqua room has a double bed plus two bunk beds suitable for children. The house, with a view of the mountains, is surrounded by a large, well managed garden. It does not have TV due to a poor network in this area; however there is excellent cell phone reception.

A broadband internet connection is available in the farm office.

Your options at Rolbaken are either dinner, bed & breakfast; B&B; or self catering. Our accommodation rate is R390.00 per person for adults and R200.00 for children 4-14. For three nights or more there is a 25% discount on accommodation.

If you would like to have meals, I can do that for you with pleasure. I charge R175.00 for a three course dinner which includes a bottle of Cape wine and R60.00 for a large farm breakfast. Our menus are South African with local and home-grown ingredients.

We personally serve our guests and will join you for dinner either on the verandah or in the guest-house dining room, depending on the weather. This gives us the opportunity to get to know you and tell you about the Klein Karoo's natural history, culture and places of interest.

For self-caterers the kitchen has all the makings for tea and coffee, a filter coffee machine, fresh milk and home-made rusks for you to enjoy at any time. There is also a sheltered barbecue area where we supply fire-lighters and kindling but no wood or charcoal.

Our book shelf has a variety of books, including some bird guides and binoculars.

The farm provides great scenery, numerous walks and scrambles, over 100 bird species, mountain fynbos, rare wildlife and irrigation dams to swim in. A guided hike to a large rock art site in the vicinity is available by prior arrangement. Maybe a sighting of the endangered Cape mountain zebra. Bring your mountain bike and enjoy the peaceful country roads. Sit on the lawn at night under the breath-taking Karoo sky, with more stars and meteorites than you have ever seen before and enjoy our rural tranquillity.

This is a strictly non-smoking establishment.

You are welcome to go to TripAdvisor to read what other guests have to say about us. We are currently rated in the top 4 under Oudtshoorn.

This will not be your average guest-house stay. Mary and Dick personally service and manage the guest-house and prepare and serve all the meals. There are no servants, so you receive our personal attention.

We look forward to meeting you - Mary & Dick Carr.

Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Wow!!! I couldn't believe it was for real!! In future all my bookings will be done through sleeping-out
- Susan Steinbach

Rolbaken is a beautiful farm nestled in the mountains outside Oudtshoorn. Dick and Mary are amazing hosts who exceeded our expectations in every way. Mary' s New Year's Eve meal, free range chicken and lamb, was delicious. The lemon meringue tart and death by chocolate cake, hot out the oven, were thoroughly enjoyed by all. The children had a wonderful farm experience , collecting eggs with Mary and meeting the 2 donkeys KD and Mopsy. All were sad to leave and we wished we could have stayed a few more days.

Great experience!
- Susan Steinbach

I would like to recommend Rolbaken B&B. Excellent accommodation, delicious food and friendly hosts. The farm is set in the Little Karoo with beautiful views all round. I wish I could have stayed longer!
