Rooderandt Hillside Lodge is situated in the picturesque Schoemanshoek Valley near Oudtshoorn and is surrounded by the enchanting Swartberg Mountain Range.
Rooderandt’s raised location offers a spectacular view accross the valley and is abundant with indigenous fauna, flora and birdlife on its 3.5 hectares of unspoilt land.
Definitely unique with its mixture of nature, culture, 19th Century World Charm & true Klein Karoo hospitality.
One is totally lost for words when trying to describe the feeling of contentment in sitting, at sunset, on the terrace overlooking the Schoemanshoek Valley. Especially if this rare experience is accompanied by a glass of good South African red wine recommended by your knowledgeable hosts, JP and Marojéan.
Another of the major advantages of staying at Rooderandt Hillside Lodge is the fact that it is situated in the heartland of attractions of the area - making it an ideal location from which to explore the world famous Cango Caves, Ostrich Show Farms, Wildlife Farms and a vast number of other tourist attractions.
Although the atmosphere at Rooderandt lends itself to relaxing in good company and interesting conversations, the cottages offer the ideal "hide-away" conducive to relaxation and a bit of soul-searching.
The House is a trove of African culture – stylishly decorated with attention to detail, furnished throughout with genuine antiques, complimenting a true South African atmosphere. Here décor is character, stretching far back into history with its poplar beam reed ceilings, an original 1897 Bolinder cast iron stove and the manor's imposing front door, originally from a 17th century hunting lodge of Simon van der Stel.
