Budget Getaways Review

Looking for an easy weekend escape where you can chill out and enjoy a bit of kite-surfing action? Pumpkin House in all its full-colour glory is a fun place to call home for your stint in Langebaan.

Located en-route to the West Coast National Park, Pumpkin House is nice and close to all the main attractions in town.

With four rooms sleeping two a-piece (two doubles, two twin), this backpacker-style spot is surprisingly homely. Each room is comfortably furnished and suitably adorned with a number of interesting art finds. Aside from the convenience of an en-suite bathroom, each room has its own bar fridge, TV and coffee-making facilities.

The enclosed garden makes for a tranquil artists retreat, and nature lovers will appreciate the abundant bird-life which can be enjoyed from the cosy cane lounger while sipping your morning cuppa.

As far as backpackers go, Pumpkin House is right up there on the Value-For-Money list.

"Hanli has created a beautiful home-feeling guesthouse here. She makes sure you get everything you need and is always up for an interesting conversation, we had a wonderful two days and will definitely choose The Pumpkin House once we're back in Langebaan!"

"Simple,clean accommodation close to the action in Langebaan. Perfect crash spot for our busy weekend in Langebaan. Hanli was wonderfully welcoming and friendly, and even made us breakfast."
