ABOUT AVONDRUST GUEST HOUSE

 

In the heart of Graaff-Reinet lies Avondrust, an imposing Guest House. Built in 1911 it offers you 4000m2 of gracious living as its philosophy. History Of Avondrust Guest House: Avondrust - A Home from Home in the Karoo Cradled in a loop of the Sundays River, the Karoo town of Graaff-Reinet is home to some 200 national monuments.

 

Around every corner a piece of history is revealed to the visitor. And it is here, in the centre of town, that Merino sheep farmer and breeder, Jan Stephanus Minnaar, built his dream house during 1911. Avondrust ("evening rest") was to be his retirement home. He lived here with his wife, Maria Magdalena Smuts, "Ouma Smuts". After he passed away, his daughter, Cora Luckhoff inherited Avondrust. Cora did not want to live in the house and sold it to her brother, Eduard Smuts (Eddie) Minnaar. After his and his wife's death, Cyril Minnaar bought Avondrust from the estate. His grandfather was Jan Minnaar's brother. All rooms boast space, privacy and comfort plus the use of a large pool overlooking the mountains.

 

 

 

Avondrust is within walking distance from all shops, museums and restaurants.  During the 1990's, the Van Hoffen Family converted the house into a guesthouse. It is still a home away from home for guests today with Wilfred and Valerie Cawood as the current owners of the guesthouse.
