Accommodation consists of 6 luxurious suites in different locations on the estate, each one with its own unique atmosphere. The garden suites are unique with total privacy and intimate setting. Suites have fireplaces (wood supplied), modern comforts, air-con, Satellite TV or DVD players in 2 others, a small movie library, music stations with a few jazz and chamber recordings supplied as well as boardgames.

As you step inside the suites, you discover even more country romance in the stylishly appointed interiors, which mixes the eclectic African, South African and European heritage. In reflecting the architecture, each of the suites features subtle and unique decor. The finishes are chosen for comfort and have a lived-in feel. Vintage pieces and antiques have been selected with care, adding to the homegrown spirit that pervades.

Unique African art punctuates throughout. Crisp yet plush bedding comforts you through the night while the bespoke lamps provide a source of warm and cosy lighting.

What really is important when you travel is character and originality. Augusta de Mist has that all and more. The owners have made ever detail of this gorgeous cluster of cottages outstanding. From the lush gardens, to the stylish decor, from the knowledge of the area and the many cultures that make up South Africa, to the home baked muffins – everything is done with an eye for detail and attention to your needs as the guest. We honestly felt “at home” and would recommend anyone spending time in the Western Cape to put this on the list.
