We had a very comfortable and peaceful stay in a lovely bedroom, and our hosts were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. There is proper ground coffee provided in the bedrooms, with a plunger - enough to make me choose one guesthouse over another. There were lovely birds in the garden, including a weaver making his nest in a tree a few...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our lodge. We are always delighted with positive comments, but even more delighted if customers suggest some improvements. No doubt that we will attend to the air-conditioning. Thanks also for your patience during the water crisis. Kind regards Theresa

I stayed her for two nights with family over the last two days. What a special place! It is neat, well run with pool, honesty bar, air conditioning, centrally located and safe parking. And great hosts Jan and Theresa. Must be the best place to stay in De Rust.

Stayed here whilst on a trip along the Garden Route. Jan and Theresa made us most welcome. Rooms are very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast excellent (especially the freshly baked scones!). Certainly a place to recommend.

Our stay was wonderful, Theresa and Jan are excellent hosts, the rooms are beautifully done up and very spacious. I can most certainly recommend Housemartin Guest Lodge, it is well situated with many lovely restaurants within walking distance or you can simply relax at the pool and enjoy a glass of wine. There is ample safe parking.

This is a true gem, a wonderful retreat after travelling a full day. Theresa was at the gate to greet us, the rooms are very tastefully made up, her hospitality is par excellence. I wish Theresa and Jan all the success as they are wonderful hosts

After a very long trip, we arrived late at Housemartin, but our caring hostess, Theresa, had arranged with the next-door restaurant to stay open to give us dinner. Our rooms were stylish and very comfortable, and the next morning we enjoyed an early cup of coffee on our private stoep, while watching the numerous birds in the garden. After a...
