Sunflower Cottage

We built Sunflower Cottage for the planet - and for you. It’s solar powered, eco-friendly, madly comfortable, and fully equipped. You’ll want to stay forever.

Sunflower Cottage was designed to capture the spirit of the Cape, and the energy of the sun. With a large, open-plan living area and a wide, covered patio, it’s a comfortable, practical house where you’ll relax completely.

In short:

  • 2 bedrooms - one with a double bed (you’ll go nuts for the brass headboards), and one with two single beds. (We can also move in a double bed or bunk beds on request.)
  • 1 bathroom with bath and shower.
  • Open-plan living and lounge area with wood-burning fireplace.
  • Fully equipped kitchen and dining area with crockery and cutlery for 4 or more people, and gas-powered stove.
  • Covered patio with braai area.
  • We're now off the grid - so no hairdryers, please...

Service:

  • Fresh linen and towels are provided - and we’ll freshen them up if you’re staying longer than a week.
  • We want you to enjoy your privacy, so we don’t provide cleaning services during your stay - but we can arrange them at a fee.

Supplies:

  • Firewood and braai-wood are supplied free of charge.
  • Fresh farm milk and eggs are available on site.
  • We suggest you bring the bulk of your groceries with you, but the Ruiterbos Farm Stall  - 8 km from Blommekloof - carries a range of basic supplies. It’s a general dealer, craft market and restaurant with pizzeria.

Pets:

  • Well behaved dogs, cats, parrots, goldfish - everyone’s welcome here at Blommekloof, but please contact us before you arrive to discuss your furry friend’s requirements. (And yes, we do have our own farm dogs - two friendly Ridgebacks and a little Jack Russell).
  • Sunflower Cottage is surrounded by a low fence (1.2 metres).
