Budget Getaways Review
Having recently enjoyed a make-over, along with the addition of the new Ouwerf Venue, Rondeheuwel now makes the idyllic spot to head for for that big family function or birthday bash. The venue is a gorgeous blend of laid back farm style, with a vintage twist, and is located alongside the guesthouse (40m).
The Guesthouse, has been beautifully spruced up, yet still retains its typical Rondeheauwel charm. Contained within the thick cool walls of this historic home are six bedrooms, two kitchens, two dining areas, two bathrooms and several fireplaces.
The impressive thing about Rondeheuwel is the standard of finish. Generally one finds the bigger the Budget house the poorer the standard, but not here. Every inch between Sonop and Sononder – as the front and back are referred to – reflects Hannalie’s creative style, from the bird detailing in the kitchen to the romantic ensemble of draped four-poster bed and matching white shutter-windows in the main bedroom.
The long shaded patio has an open view of agrarian eternity and is perfect for sundowners after a day on Arniston’s beach. These can be followed by a spit braai under the thatched lapa at the back of the house. The kitchen is well stocked, with everything from coffee filter machine to snackwich maker. Not that you’ll necessarily have use for it as Hannalie is all too happy to cater for you. She does everything from boerekos to sandproof beach hampers.
While Rondeheuwel is a good base to Arniston and the surrounding area, it is also a good destination. There is more than enough to do on the farm – walking, cycling, chatting to the ostriches, and hopping aboard Henk’s bakkie for an evening drive between jackal and ystervark. For a civilised reunion of friends or family, we reckon Rondeheuwel is as good as you can get, short of an identical pad on the beach.
