About this listing

Built in 1833, Bo-Kapie is one of the oldest houses in Swellendam. It is also the last of the houses dating back to the slave history of Swellendam which ended with their emancipation in 1834. Situated on the N2 National Road midway between Cape Town and George on the scenic Garden Route, lies Swellendam, the third oldest town in South Africa.

This little flat roofed Cape Georgian style cottage with its moulded parapet, was the preferred style of the Muslim artisans of the time. It is reminiscent of the typical Bo-Kaap (Upper Cape Town) houses as they still exist to-day. The vertical panelled frontdoor with fanlight replaced the stable door of the Cape Dutch style. Typically this fanlight is also the only window of the “voorhuis” (front room). The attractive “net curtain” on the small Victorian sash window in front of the house, was painted by the well known Swellendam artist, Jan du Toit.

A romantic little hideaway, the cottage oozes charm and nostalgia. Furnishing is simple with pieces aged by life. There are 2 bedrooms, main bedroom en suite with a Victorian bath. There is also a second bathroom. The outside flatlet has twin beds and shower bathroom en suite. Bo-Kapie sleeps up to eight people and is fully equipped for self-catering including bedding. There is an open hearth in the living room/kitchen with plenty of wood provided.

The cottage is centrally situated for museums, restaurants, shops, golf courses, hiking trails, and Marloth and Bontebok Nature Reserves. With so much to see and do in and around Swellendam, Bo-Kapie invites you for a longer stay.
