If you take the road from Cape Town in a northerly direction and drive for just under 3 hours, you will discover an oasis of luxury, comfort and warm hospitality on the West Coast, Grootvlei Guest Farm.

Grootvlei Guest Farm is situated 6 km from the charming fishing village of Lambert's Bay with its moderate all year climate. It is within walking distance from the Atlantic Ocean, inviting you to take a stroll down the long stretch of uninterrupted white beach. We offer two luxurious and stylishly decorated bed and breakfast guest houses, the 4-star Grootvlei Guest House and the 3-star Grootvlei on the Dunes.

During the flower season from August to September each year the area is covered with a tapestry of brightly coloured wild flowers.

Conservation of the dune vegetation has seen the return of small game and you will notice their footprints around the buildings. You may even spot a duikertjie or other buck on an early morning walk.

Birdwatchers will have a field day spotting a large variety of bird, and if you are lucky, you may see heaviside dolphins, whales and seals frolicking in the blue waters a short distance from the beach.
