Welcome

De Kothuize consists of eight lovingly-restored classic Cape Karoo houses in historic Graff-Reinet, Eastern Province. Most are national monuments and have been furnished and equipped in a manner which is harmonious with their historical character.
The De Kothuize units form part of the property portfolio of Graaff-Reinet Historic Properties, which was formed to preserve and restore selected historic houses in Graaff-Reinet, with ongoing activity for over four decades.

All have modern amenities and the following facilities:

Self-Catering
Pet Friendly
Air-Conditioning
Satellite Television
Off Street Parking
Weber Braai

Five of the properties are situated in Parsonage Street, Graaff-Reinet’s most historic street (stretching from Reinet House at one end to the Drostdy Hotel at the other), which is the core of the oldest part of town.

The other three houses are situated in (or adjacent to) Cradock Street, sometimes described as a “one mile and 230 years of history”, being full of historic houses, but close to the town’s museums and other facilities.

All credit cards are accepted, inclusive of Diners and Amex





We arrived in Graaff-Reinet on a Sunday last February without any reservation. Over coffee at Mad Hatters we found out about the Kothuize in the very same street. We moved into nr 6. Initially for three nights, but soon extended our stay to seven. Loved the house, the pool and the fine staff, loved Graaff-Reinet and hope to be back soon for a longer stay.

We enjoyed our stay @ 18 Parsonage Street in August very much. Hopefully we can make this a yearly event. Special thanks to all staff for making our visit special.

This little cottage was just what we wanted. Especially the attention to detail on the little things like wood and charcoal in the braai! The place was spotless and was so cute we loved it!
