BIDHUISIE

November 04, 2017

ust 42 kilometres off the N1 south towards Cape Town, you will find Prince Albert at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountain Range. Little has changed here since the first settlers founded this idyllic town around 250 years ago.

AT A GLANCE

In the middle of the peaceful Great Karoo in the Western Cape lies a quaint little village set amid beautiful natural surroundings.

On the outskirts of Prince Albert lies a tranquil little gem of a cottage called Bid Huisie (Prayer House). Originally an old church, the exterior of this exclusive two-bedroomed cottage has been left untouched. Wooden shutters and white framed doors and windows offset the lilac grey walls of this delightful old building.

UNIQUE FEATURES

MORE INFORMATION

Bid Huisie offers two beautifully decorated bedrooms with double beds to provide a comfortable stay for four people. A quaint shared bathroom features a shower, washbasin and toilet.

With its floral theme, Bid Huisie’s restful open living space comprises a lounge and dining area with fully equipped kitchenette. Bright scatter cushions, light shades and paintings mingle with the cosy furnishings that include an antique six-seater dining table, wingback chairs and comfortable sofa. The kitchenette has a fridge, microwave and stove. While all cutlery, crockery and bedding are provided, the cottage does not have a TV.

In the living area, guests can laze on the sofa after a busy day sightseeing, have a leisurely meal, or read a favourite book. Leading off from the cottage’s living area is a covered patio overlooking a private enclosed Karoo garden. Alongside the patio is seating, a barbeque and a splash pool – ideal for the hot Karoo winter days. The covered patio with its view of a fragrant lavender rock garden, offers a peaceful spot to enjoy a barbeque, glass of wine or simply soak in the stillness as you gaze at the mountains in the distance and the nearby windmill.
