"Oom Pietjie se Huisie" is named after the old gentleman who lived here with his family in the 1940's-1960's. He was a vegetable farmer who paid his rent to the farm owner with a certain percentage of his yield. He was also the local barber!

The house is situated 300m from the main farm house, so your privacy is guaranteed! Come and sit on the stoep with your coffee/sundowner, enjoy the view of the mountain and fields, listen to the call of the hadeda and guinea-fowls and relax....
