Deo Gratia Guest House is located on a Gentleman’s Estate on the edge of Durbanville. The property is 4800m2 in size and the large garden provides a feeling of space and openness. Country style living, right here in town. If you need peace and quiet after a busy day facing the traffic and hustle, bustle and excitement of all that Cape Town offers, then Deo Gratia is your haven. Your Home-from-Home in Cape Town!
Accommodation offered consists of four En-suite Bedrooms on the first floor and a two bedroom Family Unit, with direct swimming pool access, on the ground floor. These units are B&B only and a Light Breakfast is available on request. Communal barbeque facilities are available.
We also have an equipped and private two bedroom flat, which is Self Catering. This unit has a reed enclosed braai facility at the entrance to the unit, providing some shade and wind protection.
We also have a large one bedroom Self-Catering unit, which can sleep up to 6/7x guests sharing and is situated right on the pool patio. It also has a private, covered, court yard on the side of the unit, giving you privacy. For a larger group, you can add the Family Unit, then giving you a 3x bedroom unit with 2x bathrooms and a kitchen.
Remember the parking problems during your last trip? We have LOTS of parking available and your vehicle is safe, as the entire property is enclosed and access at the entrance gate is controlled. And parking is FREE.
Stressed out? Relax and float around in the pool. Start your braai/barbeque fire next to the pool while soaking up the South African sun. Find a nice spot in the shade under one of the trees and read that book that you have been wanting to read for some time now. Go for a stroll to two nearby ponds and feed the ducks.
Our garden is home to a variety of our Cape Fynbos and Protea jewels. A small sample of what can be found in larger Cape Town. If you are lucky, you can pick fresh fruit from a number of fruit trees around the garden. The plants and trees provide the correct environment to attract birds of all types and sizes. Spending some time in the garden will bring joy to the bird watchers. We have a few rabbits who are permanent visitors, adding to the country feel.
For the holiday makers, Deo Gratia provides a central base from where to explore the wonders of wider Cape Town and the Western Cape. An hour’s drive in any direction provides a totally different perspective of Cape Town. Durbanville wine estates, Malmesbury wheat farms, Langebaan (West Coast), Blouberg or Strand’s beaches, Table Mountain, V&A Waterfront, Cape Point…… Be prepared to come back to see all you could not get to during the first or second visit!
Shoppers beware! Be ready to spend a bit more than what you budgeted for. You will find Tygervalley, Willow Bridge and Cape Gate Shopping Centres less than 10 km away. And then there is Century City…. Shoppers’ heaven….
Good food and wine lovers? With twelve wine estates and hundreds of restaurants on our doorstep you are guaranteed to gain a pound or two.
Live entertainment your thing? We are spoilt rotten and a number of local venues will provide a relaxing evening with song and food.
Golfers? With excellent golf courses surrounding us, be prepared to be very busy. Durbanville Golf Course is only 5 minute’s drive away and a quick 9 holes after arriving at Deo Gratia, will definitely wet the golf appetite. Unfortunately some bug got hold of our own putting green and has reduced the Bent Grass surface to Cape Kweek. Smooth putting is therefore out, but you can perhaps practice the short chips before taking on an 18-hole round.
Business trip? Our Wi-fi connection will provide you with the freedom of the internet to do those last changes to your presentation for the morning, get that crucial information from your office server or get the message through to the boss or your staff.
Holiday maker? Paul is a trained Tour Guide and can assist you to see the best of the Cape during your visit, so please do ask if you need some guidance with your planning for your holiday.
