Swellendam Family Accommodation

We are so thrilled to showcase our newest contribution to Swellendam’s family accommodation. Months of planning, hard work (and all the other joys that come with construction) have paid off and have turned what was once just an empty shell into a beautiful and spacious family suite.Swellendam Family Accommodation

As per usual, or by now it’s become somewhat of a Schoone Oordt tradition really, Richard took on the renovation of the empty storage space together with our resident handymen (*names of two workers in pictures). From tiling, sanding of doors and ceilings and even building custom bunk beds for the new suite’s spare room – Richard and his team did it all and we couldn’t be prouder.

Construction…it’s never pretty.

Of course no renovation or construction would be complete without its perils. This time Richard very nearly ran out of time and was literally busy with the last of the finishing touches on the first day that the room was booked. As Murphy’s Law would have it, it started pouring rain from the early morning hours that day leaving Richard working out in the cold with his team holding up umbrellas – a sticky (or soggy in this case) situation. I couldn’t help to find a bit of humor in the whole situation and just had to take my phone out to take a picture, much to Richard’s dismay at that moment but we had a good chuckle about it afterwards though.

This family room is perfect for large families, comfortably sleeping up to six people with loads of space for a cot (or two) in the main bedroom area for guests visiting with babies or toddlers. We’re most excited about the separate children’s room in this suite and can just imagine the laughs and delightful stories that’ll be shared between those bunk beds long after bedtime. During the day parents can watch over the kids playing on our circular lawn from the room’s large balcony while enjoying a picnic basket or afternoon tea.

Swellendam Family AccommodationOur goal with this room was to really make it really fit for a family with children by adding a few special touches like an additional, lower basin for our tiny guests, a separate room for the children and a spacious lounging area.

We’re endlessly dreaming about how our guests will enjoy this family room and their stay in Swellendam as an entirety. The possibilities are endless with so many family oriented activities and breathtaking places to see in and around Swellendam, you’ll never want to leave. And if you do, we’re pretty sure that once you’ve experienced the peace, serenity and adventure Swellendam has to offer you’ll always want to return. Spending quality time with family is so important and with this additional family room we’re hoping to facilitate the making of countless precious family memories.
