The Guesthouse is located on the fertile banks of the Olifants River, on the famous South African WEST COAST. This gem of South Africa's WEST COAST, has everything and more to offer the battle-weary businessman or adventurous tourist.

On your arrival at Melkboomsdrift, you will be received by the friendly personnel and your hostess and owner, Hilsa Van Heerden who will gladly treat you to a private wine tasting on this beautiful working wine farm.

The Main House

The historic building (c1820) which houses the beautifully restored suites, achieved monument status in 1992 when Hilsa lovingly began the laborious task of restoration on the then run down and dilapidated building.

Today the Guesthouse proudly boasts seven fully serviced double en-suite rooms and four self-catering units for those who prefer it.

There are a total of 13 en-suite garden suites and 4 of those suite can be self-catering suites aswell, each with a unique name, to choose from. The units are able to accommodate from 1 to 5 people.
