Tarantula Guest House

From R340 PPS



Tarantula offers the ideal location for both privacy and relaxation. We are situated on the outskirts of Calvinia, with a spectacular view of the Hantam Mountains, yet within walking distance of the center of town.

Nowhere else is the starry sky so clear, the air so fresh and the silence so apparent. We offer you the unique opportunity to break away from your everyday routine and experience a piece of nature up close and personal.

Our fully furnished units features a luxurious king size bed and a couch that can accommodate a child. Baby cots will be made available on demand. Air-conditioning and electric blankets will ensure a good nights rest no matter the weather. A fully fitted kitchen and dining area enable guests to cater for themselves, as well as an open-plan living area with DStv and a built-in braai.

Calvinia is a regional town in the Northern Cape province of South Africa named after the French religious reformer Jean Calvin. The Calvinia district is part of the Great Karoo region of South Africa. The town is just south of the Hantam mountains on the banks of the Oorlogskloof (meaning "War Revine") River. Calvinia enjoys 80% starlight and is renowned for its kaleidoscope of spring wildflowers coinciding with the Namaqualand wildflower spectacle.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. 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.
