Voëlroepersfontein* Guest House & Writers’ Retreat lies hidden between magnificent trees in the historical town of Albertinia in the Western Cape. The guest house and retreat is ideally suited for group accommodation (reunions, weddings, family gatherings, workshops and corporate retreats). Aside from the usual facilities of tea and coffee, mini fridges and DSTV in the rooms with airconditioning, access to laundry and ironing facilities, guests have a well equipped kitchen at their disposal to prepare their own food – if they so wish. Free access to internet. Security cameras ensure safety inside and out, also with regard to parking. ​ Voëlroepersfontein is a place of rejuvenation and inspiration, where you reconnect with nature and – enveloped in the shade of the century old Ficus burkei – experience something of your own place in the universe, in harmony with Albertinia’s tourism theme of “Healing through Nature”. ​

We have stayed at this WONDERFUL B and B before and just had to stay again. The host is so accommodating and the comfort and homeliness provided is of the highest order. Set in its own fantastic gardens with the famous “Whispering Tree” it is truly a haven of peace and tranquility. The breakfast provided rates 11 out of 10 !!!!
If you have the opportunity you must stay in this lovely place .

Unfortunately I was only able to stay for one night and had to leave early in the morning. What a wonderful stay nevertheless. Our hostess greeted us even though we arrived late and showed us around the garden with its award-winning ficus trees. The house is vast but very personal and beautifully furnished and with everything provided you could wish for! A beautiful house, a stunning garden, lovely rooms and a wonderful host who even made us coffee before we left at 6.25 am!

My first thought...WOW !!!
Amazing garden, beautiful trees, spacious rooms and very friendly owners.
Very will situated in a quiet area. Albertinia is a great base to explore the area from Hartenbos to Stillbaai.
What more can one ask for? A must if you want to stop over in the area.

Oh my word what a treat to have stayed here, the property is decorated in old world charm with spacious rooms and the food is simply outstanding, not to mention the service. The hostessed are very accommodating and extremely helpfull.

Do they take note, tripadvisor refers to this property as a hotel, however it`s not a hotel, but rather a guest house.We`ll definitely be heading back to this retreat as soon as time allows as i`ts well worth the drive and space and quiet is like food to the soul.

I didn't sleep over at this hidden gem, but would love to go back for a quiet week.
What an amazing place, peaceful, lovely old 60's decor and furniture. Chickens, ducks and geese wandering all over the garden where there were 24? fountains. Very peaceful, and ideal for a reclusive and quiet few days.
A true hidden gem
