About us

Welcome to our enchanting guest accommodation SchoemansRus (“Rus” is an Afrikaans word for “rest”) in the heart of Riebeek West, a hidden gem nestled within the serene beauty of the Riebeek Valley in the Western Cape, South Africa. As you step into our tranquil garden, you’ll be captivated by the charm and warmth that surrounds you.

Our accommodation boasts six tastefully appointed rooms, each thoughtfully designed to provide a comfortable and relaxing stay. With en-suite bathrooms, you can wind down in your private oasis after a day of exploration and adventure.

One of the highlights of our space is the inviting verandah (stoep), accessible from four of the six rooms, where you can savour a delightful breakfast while basking in the gentle morning sun. The view of the garden and its abundance of birdlife adds an extra touch of natural wonder to your mornings.

During the Swarland’s summer days, our refreshing pool awaits you, offering a rejuvenating respite from the heat and in in the winter months you get cozy in our lounge area with a true woodfired fireplace . Adjacent to the pool lies a charming boma, a rustic fire-pit, where you can immerse yourself in the mesmerizing garden ambiance while enjoying a snack or indulging in a delightful braai (barbecue). As the sun sets, the boma becomes the perfect spot to gather with loved ones, savoring a glass of local wine and olives while present in the soothing crackle of the fire.

Our guest accommodation in Riebeek West is a place where time stands still, allowing you to unwind, recharge, and reconnect with nature. Whether you’re seeking a romantic getaway, a family vacation, or a peaceful retreat, our haven promises an unforgettable experience. We look forward to welcoming you to our little slice of paradise in the heart of the Swartland.
