About our home

During 2014 I came across and purchased an isolated plot with the most magnificent views of the Sneeuberg Mountains. I felt that this would be a perfect location to establish an upmarket guesthouse which doubles up as our home!

From a Karoo farm, hidden 53 km away in the Sneeuberg mountains I sourced all the necessary poplar beams for the thatch structure, as well as the reeds which were used for the ceilings of the rooms. All the gravel and sand was trucked in as well from the dry river beds. Finally in July 2016 the Whyte House was completed.

I would especially love to do a home swap any time between the beginning of May and the end of August as our busy period is between 1 October and end of April. I am, however, more than happy to swop for points if dates don't match. Please enquire about availability! * Cleaners can be arranged (a fee to be agreed upon).

I look forward to giving all our guests a very warm welcome and endeavor to make your Karoo visit unforgettable!
