Housed in a town that combines scenic surrounds with a hearty helping of history and class, Jonkmanshof in Montagu comes up smiling with a beautiful backdrop to experience both. This private escape fine-tunes the needs of the modern traveller with 18th century Cape splendour. Jonkmanshof forms part of the Hemelhuijs family and the resemblance and attention to detail are undeniable.
Look forward to a luxe interior highlighted by a touch of understated elegance with four-poster beds, cashmere blankets, and carefully decorated antiques. And the ultimate trump card? A picturesque ensuite bathroom which transports you to a bygone era with stunning views over the manicured citrus gardens and mountain range.
The boutique accommodation consists of two Cape Dutch-style heritage houses in Bath Street, built around 1854 and 1856 respectively. Each venue can be rented per suite, which is suitable for two guests. Alternatively, exclusive use of the entire house is also available, as well as rental of both houses for a large group of friends or family of up to 8 people.
Standard features include access to the library, farm swimming pools, laundry services, and for those who must get some work done, a solid Wi-Fi connection. A variety of activities such as classic car country drives, golf, and rock climbing can be arranged via the accommodation.
Jonkmanshof is giving Capetonians the chance to experience their Visi-level interiors first-hand.
