Surrounded by soaring mountains, crisp clean air and gentle streams, Your accommodation, The Kleine Kaap Private Residence provides a cosy retreat for those Ladies wishing to escape the daily burdens of routine & responsibility for just a few days.

Your Hostess is Annari Oosthuysen daughter of the family-owned Kleine Kaap Private Residence and the renowned travelling Karoo Artist. She is an avid Hiker and Nature lover.

“She is a woman with many facets, like the Lady whose name she bears.

Spiritual and Blessed, some say when they see God’s thumbprint on her side.

Others say she is Mysterious when they hear about her Myths & Legends.

She is, all of the above & just the most beautiful village, Lade Grey.”

The food is locally sourced, much grown on the farm, and an honest, homemade, hearty experience. Cooked breakfasts with free-range eggs and fresh farm produce are delicious.  The lunches are light with dinner being traditionally South African.

Guests should feel free to bring whatever snacks, drinks and sundries for their own consumption.
