The coolest farmhouse to rent in South Africa

Located in: Montagu
Jonkmanshof is a beautifully-restored 1854 Cape Dutch heritage house, recently featured by Condé Nast Traveller as the coolest farmhouse to rent in South Africa. Nestled in the small, picturesque Klein Karoo town of Montagu, it s the perfect luxurious escape.

The space:
The historic interior features contemporary South African art mixed with 18th century Cape furniture.
The entrance hall features a collection of old turtle shells, gleaming wooden floors and shutters to keep the interior cool. The library has midnight-blue walls off-set by art and antiques, curated ceramics and a wonderful collection of books.
The lounge is painted oxblood red and furnished with comfortable sofas, antique chairs, a wall-mounted Cape-Dutch cupboard and an antique green marble fireplace. Firewood is provided in winter.

The farmhouse-style kitchen has a beautiful herringbone brick floor, marble-and-wrought-iron work surfaces. A glass conservatory, filled with indigenous succulents, links the kitchen and dining area with the walled vegetable and potted citrus gardens. The raised swimming pool resembles a farm dam and overlooks the pretty chicken coop.

Both bedrooms have king-size four-poster beds dressed in pure Italian linen and goose down and can be set up as twin beds. Classic Karoo shutters and ceiling fans cool the bedrooms in summer and in winter there s cashmere and heating.
The en-suite bathrooms have deep cast-iron bateau tubs, hotel-size guest amenities, hair dryers, cotton bath towels and under floor heating.

Guest access:
Private use of the property excluding the guest cottage in the citrus garden.

Interaction with guests:
We respect our guests privacy but am available when needed.
