Somserset West Guest House Accommodation - Lourens River Guesthouse - Helderberg, Western Cape

 Our family-run guesthouse is situated in the heart of the  Helderberg tourist area. Only 18 minutes to and from  Cape Town International Airport and only half an hour  from the pulsating downtown centre of Cape Town.

 Our guest house is the perfect base for touring as wine  farms, golf courses, beaches, restaurants and shopping  malls are all nearby.

Have you always wanted to travel to South Africa but had nobody to ask for advice? Are you looking for a special place to spend your holidays with fun and different activities?

Are you dreaming of water-sports or golfing, flying of radio-controlled aero planes, trips on a motor bike or hiking in beautiful mountains and happy gatherings around the Braai-fire?

Do you want to spend a memorable day with your children or spend quality time as a couple without them? Do you want to relax at the pool and read an entertaining book?

Or taste the delicious South African food and the excellent wines and thereby meet the people of the country?

Then we are the right place for you! Our aim is to bring you up close and personal with South Africa – the place we call home!

Come on holiday from your busy lifestyle and unwind at our home. We offer a very friendly atmosphere, generously sized warm bedrooms and an 11 m sparkling swimming pool. We believe that on holiday you want a good night’s rest on comfortable mattresses, freshen up with a shower and enjoy a sumptuous and delicious breakfast. Then you go off to a good start of travelling around the coastal region and return to relax in the comfort of our garden and pool area.

Become part of our family or enjoy your privacy. All rooms have their own entrance. Small and run by people with dedication – that’s what makes Lourens River Guesthouse an ideal destination.
