Karoo Khaya

Karoo Khaya has 4 cottages on a small-holding within the beautiful town of Prince Albert. Your hosts, Pete and Megan, would like you to feel that this is a relaxing home away from home.

Share our passion for the Karoo and our property! Feel free to wander through our huge fruit and veggie garden and olive orchards (and pick from it for your dinner!) The kids will love to visit our animals in their free range home and are welcome to help at feeding time. There are no streetlights or town noises to spoil that special Karoo tranquility…

We look forward to welcoming you to our part of heaven and hope that your visit will be fun and memorable.

There are 4 spacious cottages set in a peaceful garden. Each is decorated with a touch of the old Karoo with attention to detail and interesting rustic little touches.

Special care has been taken to give you home away from home comforts – quality linen, comfy beds, extra blankets, hot water bottles and heaters for those chilly winter nights and fans for the Karoo summer.

We spent only one night, much too short in this beautiful countryside. We really enjoyed our stay with Megan’s family, the rooms were perfect for us with kids, with a garden just in front and farm animals behind the house. And we enjoyed a nice chat with our hosts, and a good bottle of wine. We had a great time!! Be sure to stay longer as there seems to be lots of stuff to do around!  – Claire Tournebize (South Africa)
Heerlik, skoon, gasvry. Baie dankie. –  Fritz and Daleen Oosthuizen (Augrabies)  
Thank you Pete and Megan for a magical stay at your guest house. It is a bit like stepping back into history with its olde world charm. Your home made apricot jam is beyond delicious and all the veggies bought at the market were wonderful, a whole new cooking experience for me. The Karoo Kombuis also served us the most incredible dinner in the most beautiful old fashioned little restaurant. These 2 establishments are sooo worth visiting again. Many thanks for your hospitality.  – Fred & Beverley Jenkins (South Africa)
