ELEGANTLY LAID BACK
Each of our 8 rooms at Gonana Guest House have been carefully designed to promote a sense of calm and tranquility. The decor is inspired by the natural surroundings of sea, sky and sand and gives a decidedly Scandi-African feel. The art pieces in the guest house are made locally from recycled materials, the chairs from handmade Malawi cane.
High ceilings, skylights and huge sash windows let in light, beauty and inspiration from the views of the ocean or the mountain or the pool. Each room has its own private veranda for lazy evenings with a glass of wine.
All rooms are en-suite and are equipped with extra-long and wide mattresses for gentle comfort and wellbeing. A safe, air conditioning system and Wi-Fi are standard.
The bathrooms of this eco-friendly guest house use grey water. Rainwater is collected in tanks and used
to top up the pool. Hot water is obtained from solar energy (and there's plenty of sun in South Africa)
and water-saving showers are installed for guiltless showering.
The heart of the guest house is upstairs in the enormous lounge overlooking the sea. Here a cosy fireplace warms up the room (and your mood) on windy days. The outdoor verandah is ideal for sunset drinks and hot mornings when you need shade. Paternoster is perfect any time of the year with each season offering unqiue contrasts and beauty.
Like the rest of the guest house, the decor is a pleasing mixture of old and new. The driftwood communal breakfast table belonged to the previous owner and is now the centre of new friendships and reconnecting. Here you can eat breakfast whilst admiring the sea views and preparing for another day in paradise. The grey screed cement floors give softness and calm. Access to wifi has been intentionally omitted in this area to promote tranquility and mental peace.
We have 7 double rooms and 1 studio apartment.
We look forward to hosting you!
