A quaint hideaway in Swellendam, Augusta de Mist is a Cape Dutch homestead surrounded by beautiful gardens, indigenous bush and an overwhelming sense of peace.

The property is a National Monument and boasts traditional yellowwood shutters, iron work, reed ceilings and mud and clay structure. Six luxurious suites enjoy personal touches, private patios and the comfort and historic style of this estate. Interiors and guest areas are vibrantly contemporary and feature dashes of vintage items and antiques. 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.

Enjoy delicious meals lovingly prepared in the kitchen – lazy breakfasts in shaded outdoors spaces, or beside a blazing log fire. Owner run and infused with the warmth and hospitality of a bygone era, guests arrive at Augusta as a stranger and leave as a friend.
