How would you describe Jonkmanshof in a nutshell?
It is a haven of peace and tranquility the moment you step through the front door. It takes you back to a bygone era where life was slower and there was no rush. The houses have been taken back to what they would have been to live in in 1856 when they were built, but with all the modern amenities required.
What is the story behind Jonkmanshof, what was your inspiration to create it?
The houses were bought and renovated as country houses for private use and for the owners to get out of the city. It evolved into becoming a guesthouse as the owners only spent every 2nd weekend there.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Jonkmanshof?
The interior design reflects and honours the heritage of the houses with touches of contemporary furniture and South African art. All the modern amenities such as underfloor heating, WiFi are cleverly hidden to fit in with the design.
The atmosphere the houses create is calmness, tranquility and total relaxation.
To you personally, what is so special about Jonkmanshof?
The heritage of the houses and the feeling of living in a bygone era.
We have the 2 houses that are both Cape Dutch heritage houses and are 80 meters apart in the same street. Both houses have 2 bedrooms with full en-suite bathrooms, entrance room, lounge, dining room, kitchen, private garden and swimming pool.
20 Bath (built in 1854) is a larger house as it also has a library, succulent greenhouse and a larger garden and swimming pool. 30 Bath was built in 1856. The finishes, quality of furniture, art and amenities in both houses are the same and these houses form the Jonkmanshof portfolio.
Each suite is an unforgettable experience unto itself and are furnished with a mix of carefully selected antiques and contemporary furniture and art. All the bedrooms have remote ceiling fans for the hot summers and down feather duvets, underfloor heating and cashmere blankets for the cold Karoo winters.
Both houses can either be booked on a per room basis or exclusive use or both for exclusive use, depending on the requirements and number of guests.
