Merwehuis Bed and Breakfast was built in 1938. The current owners are the fourth family to enjoy the spacious old home. During the past years they have restored their house to reflect a bygone era. Their love and appreciation for their own family- history is reflected in the names of all the suites. Names like Visser, Alewijnse and Pieters are some of the surnames of their ancestors.
Although situated in the midst of the vibrant community of Auckland Park and Rossmore, Merwehuis offers a tranquil ambience where you can experience home away from home. For the past three years, since the establishment of Merwehuis, the owners have experienced how guests become friends, who return to experience the warm hospitality that Merwehuis has to offer.
