About Aanhuizen Guest House

Aanhuizen Guest House lies at the foot of the Langeberg mountains in Swellendam. We are 2 hours from Cape Town and 2 hours from George. Swellendam is the 3rd oldest magisterial district in South Africa.
Swellendam forms part of the Cape-Overberg meander. Overberg means 'over the mountain' The journey to the 'Overberg' three centuries ago was a bone crunching one by wagon - but well worth it for the hospitality and warmth you received from the people of the Overberg. It is truly a haven of peace & tranquility.
Enjoy our old fashioned South African hospitality in this superior Guest House. Tom & Olwyn, your hosts will make you welcome. This is the ideal place to relax as you take in the stunning unspoilt views of the Langeberg mountains. With plenty to do and see in Swellendam be sure not to cut your stay too short.
All our rooms offer percale cotton bedlinen, soft fluffy towels and are en-suite with separate entrances for peace and privacy.
A delicious breakfast is served next to the swimming pool or on the lawns in summer.
Allow us to make your stay in Swellendam an unforgettable experience.

                                      The place is beautiful, its owners friendly and the rooms nice and cozy, the only downer is the absence of a stove in the self-catering room we were in. We really enjoyed our stay, will definitely come back...

                                      The room was fine though rather dreary and dated. The room size was great. The bathroom was clean but the shower needed a bit of "handy Andy" tlc.The breakfast was good but the crockery a bit old and chipped! Limited TV chanels on a rather dated old TV

                                      I enjoyed my night, and wish the weather had been better, to take advantage of the lovely pool. The guest house is pet friendly, and owners are very accommodating. If you have a livewire like mine, the absence of perimeter fencing is scary.

                                      We stayed only 1 night, nevertheless we enjoyed the sojourn as the accomodation was spacious and clean, as well we got good invormations from the friendly host.

                                      The host's were inviting and helpful with things to do and restaurants to try.Rooms were comfortable and cool during the hot days and evening's. Breakfasts had enough variety and the omelettes  tasty. The guest house is close to many restaurants and one of many hiking trails.We will definitely be back to stay there again, when we return to Swellendam.
