We were offered every possible comfort in this beautiful timeless country house. We stayed in the Birdsong Cottage - we are a couple with a 13yo son - and had more than enough room to lounge, have coffee on the porch, enjoy the gardens and pool as well as get a wonderfully restful sleep - all right in the middle...

For people who love all things historical and beautiful this is the place for you. Anna-Marie and Charles are gracious hosts. From the books, to the silverware, to antique furniture every item is quality and has a story to tell. If our throw-away society bothers you then step back in time where things where made with pride and purpose and...

De Kuilen country house is definitely one of jhb best kept secrets.

It is amazing how De Kuilen Country House manages to retain a true country feel. In the buzz and hustle of the city, tucked safely away is the tranquil of true country Guest house in surroundings of mature lavish vegetation, giving an impression of some tropical forest. The garden is beautiful and inviting. Attention to detail, is in every space...

Being a nature-loving group from all over the country, having to stay in suburban Johannesburg can often be a daunting prospect! De Kuilen was a wonderfully refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle just minutes from the property. I loved the greenery, cosiness and charm of the rooms and buildings; and the generosity and attention to detail of Charles and...

De Kuilen is an oasis of tranquility and comfort in the bustling, fast paced city of Johannesburg. The warmth and generosity of the hosts is a rare find and the experience was more like staying with old friends than being just a guest in an accommodation establishment. I particularly enjoyed the authentic decor and gardens, and the dining experience was...
