Be warned, once you walk through the glass and steel doors of this villa, you might not want to leave, except saunter over to Jemimas for a meal…. Rough cast concrete and steel have interesting conversations with luxurious over-sized couches in glorious upholstery. Books and wonderful art and ceramics sing along, the symphony of them all bouncing off mirrored surfaces and the gentle gleam of iron and brass. The kitchen invites even the most reluctant cook to fill the beautiful platters in the drawers with big food and the Bali-esque courtyard lures you and your book to the day bed next to the pool. Velvet curtains cascading on the floor and a svelte bath at centre stage adds to the seduction of the downstairs bedroom, with more art and the gentle sound of water outside the stacking doors.
Luxury, opulence, comfort and attention to the smallest detail.
We honestly didn’t want to leave.

The very spacious house is an artistic landmine to Oudtshoorn. We were 5 groomsmen staying at this house which feels like a mixture between a great karoo house and a futuristic house.
The host (Pierre) greeted us at the venue and he was such a friendly & accommodating host. He gave us amazing pointers on things to do in town and he was social with us after we invited him to sit with us at the onsite restaurant. The area is very safe.
The house has a pool, a Jacuzzi and also an outside living area. We used all the facilities and it was working perfectly.
There is a Springbuck collection book with so much history.
Every person who walked in the house was shocked with awe. The wedding photographer incorporated a lot of the house into the wedding venue and pictures with the groomsmen and bridesmaids. The house was also very clean.
I enjoyed my stay too much and would recommend this stay at the number one spot.
Its is perfect for honeymoon, business & leisure stay or even to catch a break over the weekend. Just make sure you have leave, you might even end up staying longer.

Every little detail is considered and Pierre-personal and professional touch is experienced each and every moment of the day.

A big big thank you for making our stay so special , and to the staff who are true gems

If you love art, books and beautiful elegant decor, you have to visit this Villa. From the moment you step foot into the villa you will be surrounded by breathtaking visions of art, furniture and décor. The lush garden is inviting and the open space makes you feel like you can just breathe and relax. The kitchen is excuisite and if you love to cook you won’t be dissapointed. Plenty of space and great appliances with beautiful crockery. Rooms are fit for a king, quality linen, any amenity you can think of and again, the décor is artful and magnificent. The pool and jaccuzi makes it a complete experience. If you just want to relax and take in the glamorous surroundings, their restaurant Jemimas, is on site and will even bring your food to the villa if you want to dine in. One can easily forget the problems of the world and feel like royalty in The Bright House Villa.

A absolute gem in Oudtshoorn! We were 4 girlfriends that decided we need a mid week break from work children and partners and we had a blast. The house is absolutely incredible! The beds were divine and we needed at least 3 more days there to experience it to its full extend. Piere and his team were so accommodating and amazing and we can not thank them enough, Next door the the bright house villa is the very popular Jemima's restaurant, we had the luxury of eating breakfast there and once again our expectations were blown out of the park. This place is A MUST if you are in Oudsthoorn or actually just a must!!!!!!

This is the place you don't want to leave! And if you have to leave, you keep on going back.... We have stayed at the Bright for various reasons, work, leisure and just because we can and every time was fabulous!
Everything you could possible need is at your disposal and it is offered in style, whether it is sleeping, eating, entertaining, sun bathing or the like.
It also does not end there...... the staff is incredible, it feels like they have known you all your life and it is no effort for them to help and assist with whatever they can. Arriving, staying and leaving the house is effortless and seamless.
Jemimas restaurant is right next door, a restaurant that needs it's own review, the same staff is ready to serve you with the biggest smiles and homely welcome.
This is the jewel in Oudtshoorn!!

We had the privilege of staying at this beautifully nurtured home while being treated like celebrities by all the staff. Every person I had contact with blessed me with friendly smiles and clearly showed their passion for the hospitality industry.

Bright house also provides a little something for everyone. Whether you are an art lover, simply looking for a few good books to read, or a 10 year old just wanting to splash in the pool, Bright House provides just what you need to wind down.

At the end of the day, the quality of one’s stay is almost always determined by the little things, such as comfortable living spaces or accommodating staff. I can truly say that the Bright House’s emphasis on the small things will certainly ensure a wonderful time for anyone who stays there.

The Bright House is a wonderful accommodation in the center of Oudtshoorn, Located behind Jemima's restaurant, it's a very comfortable and modern house (all to yourself), cantered around a lovely courtyard with a pool. The three bedrooms are all beautifully decorated and all en-suite. The house is cleverly designed to provide maximum privacy. My husband and I stayed here for the weekend and were made to feel at home by both owners and staff (we ate both evenings at the restaurant, both the food and staff were lovely!). It would also be the perfect place for a family and/or group of friends, as the cooking/living/entertainment area is large and fun. We will definitely be back!

Such a beautifully decorated and well appointed Villla.
With decor eye candy every where, every little corner of the house and piece of furniture became a talking point.
An oasis in the Karoo, we were either chilling by the pool or cooking up a storm.
With the staff being so attentive, there was no need to venture out.
If there was something we had forgotten , Pierre arranged it for us quick sticks.
Beds and linen were perfect.
Will definitely visit again.

The owners have created a very special luxury retreat in the heart of beautiful Oudtshoorn. The eclectic interiors showcase South African art, antique and contemporary furniture to deliver an atmosphere that cannot be rivalled. I attended a wedding at the Bright House and it provided the perfect backdrop for a very special day. The villa is highly recommended for functions! The staff were warm, friendly and professional and we were treated like royalty. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable and all amenities are of the best quality. As a bonus, one of the best restaurant's in the Klein Karoo, Jemima's, is located on your doorstep. Thank you Pierre and Debbie, I can't wait to visit again!
