Die Rotse Host House Concept


Although "Spykerklip" and "Drie­vis" are separate, stand alone and fully equipped self-catering faci­lities, the hosts are prepared – at special request – to facilitate the guests with typical South African foods like 'potjiekos', bobotie, freshly baked bread in an old style Dover stove, 'snoek' on the BBQ with sweet potatoes and when in season 'waterblommetjie bredie' – a local delicacy – and not to exclude the typical South African 'pap en wors' or a simple meat or fish barbie. A taste of local wines is also possible.

The hosts will also act as guides and sources of information on the greater Western Cape region and are willing to suggest day trips to places of interest such as one of the only mainland colonies of African Penguins in South Africa at nearby Betty's Bay.

Our Host House Concept is a fresh approach to your holiday destination requirements and differentiates us from B&Bs or Guest Houses, where we – your hosts – will demonstrate typical South African hospitality by forming a relationship that could extend to a friendship, between you, our guests and ourselves.

We take special care that your stay at our facilities would be a memorable superior holiday ex­perience.

Die Rotse Host House provides you with absolute privacy and confidentiality when using our self-Catering facilities in which case we shall be passive but hospitable and allow you to do your own thing or with the option that your hosts be a subtle but active part of your stay, through our extended offerings.

Extended offerings mean that we shall guide you to collect seafood (fish, crayfish, Black mussels or periwinkles – subject to permit conditions, and weather and sea conditions), and help you pre­paring the seafood that you collected, or we shall prepare it on your behalf.

We shall guide and inform your children about the eco-system of the kelp forest and inter-tidal pools in front of the house and explain to them how to respect the sea and the little creatures living in these tidal pools.

We shall prepare typical South African meals at your request.

We shall share our experiences through very informative and entertaining stories, as we have global traveling experiences and also knowledge levels that extend to most industries, be it eco­nomics or sport. You lead the way of the conversation and we shall follow.

We shall make available our private home facilities, as a very special request, in particular our sea facing dining room or our "under-glass roof indoors BBQ area", where you can watch us preparing your food of choice and enjoy our hospitality and hope­fully become friends.

Die Rotse which means "The Rocks" Host House & Self-catering would want to leave you with a superior holiday experience that you will remember for a long time and consider it as your next holiday destination again.
