Minutes away from Sandton City, and even less from Fourways Mall, lies an unexpectedly beautiful recreation of an 18th century Cape Dutch homestead in an island of green tranquility. Set in 3 acres of landscaped garden, and lovingly filled with treasured family heirlooms and magnificent antiques, it is a place of peace and pampering.
Guests may choose from four large and charmingly appointed cottages:
Birdsong Cottage, Pomegranate Cottage, Arum Lily Cottage with Lavender Loft, and The Tree House - all self-contained and tranquil, set in their own gardens, fragrant with roses and herbs. You may also choose to have breakfast served on your own private garden verandah, or on the Rose- Terrace of the main house in Summer - or at the fireside in our cozy Cape Dutch traditional dining-room in Winter. For other meals you may wish to take advantage of the excellent self-catering facilities. Perhaps indulge yourself with a memorable gourmet dinner, provencal in feeling, preceded by conversation by the fire in Winter, and in Summer, drinks in an alfresco ambience.
All four cottages accommodate two guests but some can be made inter-leading. All have private entrances and offer you a holiday you will remember for the beauty of your surroundings and the calm, courteous, caring hospitality. The highlight of any stay at de Kuilen Country House must be the four-course gourmet dinner. Presenting a Table d'Hote menu, a French-trained chef creates three exquisite options for each course. Served in the Manor House or Courtyard with an intimate ambience enhanced by the glow of candlelight on silver, crystal and fine linen. Your choice from the superior wine list completes an unforgettable evening.
