We have 2 cosy en-suite units consisting of a small living room with a kitchenette, bedroom with a double bed and a unique bathroom. The units are self-catering. We have a large braai area that guests can enjoy. The units are separate from the main house with its own entrance and secure parking. The Guest House is situated on a large plot with a garden to be enjoyed and relax in. Children can bring their bicycles along. We are walking distance from Bokkom Avenue (Bergriver) and 5 minutes from the sea which is still mostly undisturbed, and where you can walk for miles along the beach.

The only place to stay when visiting Velddrif. A beautiful, peaceful and well-appointed room which is well equipped with every amenity under the sun to make your stay great. Attention to detail was perfect and the entire unit was spotlessly clean! The hosts, Braam and Drienette were most welcoming and accommodating. They were great hosts and went out of their way to make sure my two night stay was perfect. I highly recommend Granny Mac's Self-Catering Guest House for your stay in Velddrif. I will most certainly make use Granny Mac's Self-Catering Guest House of when next in Velddrif.

In my opinion this is the only place anyone should choose to stay in Velddrift. Prices are very reasonable, the service outstanding, the facilities amazing and the hands-on management of the owners is the best I have ever experienced.

The unit was spotlessly clean. We have seldom come across this level of cleanliness. It was very comfortable & well & tastefully equipped. Drienette & Braam are on hand when needed & are excellent hosts. The braai area is conveniently situated & there is a large lawn & garden at the back. Granny Mac is in a quiet area, one block from the river & shops are just up the road. We would definitely go back & recommend it to other people.

We stayed in all the units. Each unit was so tastefully decorated. Very comfortable beds. Drienette even supplied a birthday cake for one of our travellers. Very friendly reception on arrival. Can recommend it and will definitely stay there again.

My husband and I recently celebrated our second wedding anniversary and we decided to take a little trip up the West Coast. We stayed at Granny' Mac's with Braam and Drienette and loved it! The lovely lawn at the back was just fantastic! We lazed about with a glass of wine enjoying the sunset. The facilities were top notch and the accommodation nicely decorated and very comfortable. The large stone bath was a treat! We even had a little spoil in the bathroom from our hosts seeing that it was our anniversary. I would definitely go back anytime and the accommodation comes hightly recommended.

Granny Mac self catering units are the best! Thank you for the warm welcome and continuous contact with us. The units we as a family had were beautifully decorated and with such detail. The booklets with all possible places to visit and see was a great help. Location of Granny Mac is quite and small shops are walking distance from there. The only thing we are sorry about is that we has such a short visit in Velddrif.

Clean, spacious affordable and romantic rooms set in a luscious green garden. The charming hosts, Braam and Drienette, rounded the weekend of perfectly. My high-point of the weekend was the hand shaped bath. Thank you .
