@245 has been renovated to a higher standard and is furnished with many works of art and antiques. It was an old house restored with total respect for its innate simplicity. In the main house there is a fully equipped open plan kitchen with a cozy electric fireplace and a build-in dining table, a living room with an office space ideal for the business traveller. 3 rooms available in the main house. 2 with a double bed, and 1 en-suite bedroom with a king size bed. Every room is individually decorated with its own unique charm. There is also a separate self-catering open plan en-suite flat let with 2 double beds. On the outside there is a 5x3m cocktail pool for the exclusive use of the guests, with a beautiful array of succulents, trees and plants. There is a dining space in the courtyard for those preferring to dine underneath the trees. Ample braai facilities available for the use of our guests. Occasionally the hosts will spoil their guests with traditional South African braai (BBQ), or Potjiekos, with the best meat from the district. @245 is situated in the main road of Nieuwoudtville. With easy access from the R27. The position is perfect as it is in the heart of the Namaqualand region, known as the bulb capital of the world. The town lies on the Bokkeveld Escarpment. Nieuwoudtville is extremely popular tourist destination in South Africa especially during the wild flower season. The hosts, Johan & Liezl has a passion for gardening and being outdoors. Johan’s family roots in the Namaqualand district dates back almost 100 years. In 2018, Johan & Liezl came to the Namaqualand to visit family and friends, and they fell in love with the town and its people. Everything in the residences was personally selected by them: the furnishings, decorations, colors and every detail. “This is a special place we love to share with our guests & friends. Our desire is to bring you into our home to share our culture and our style of life so that you experience the best of Nieuwoudtville… an experience we are sure will be one of your best memories of your time spent in Namaqualand” As a “thank you for your stay @245” each guest receives a small ‘spekboom’ as a gift. The guests can take the small potted plants with them and plant them wherever they want. The ‘Spekboom’ (aka Portulacaria afra) is a succulent that helps fight air pollution. It has the ability to capture 4 -10 tons of carbon per hectare!… Excess carbon in the atmosphere is responsible for global warming, so the more carbon we can remove from the air and return to the ground, the better. We look forward to meeting you soon!
