Gecko Cottage Guest House

About Gecko Cottage Guest House

The Guest House is a four star guest house, rated by the South African Tourism Grading Council and situated in Prieska, offshore the Orange river, Northern Cape, South Africa. Prieska is about 230km west of Kimberley (the capital of the Northern Cape) , and 240km south of Upington, which makes it a must stop over when you are touring the Northern Cape. It is also a half way stop between Namibia and the Western and Eastern Cape. This four star guest house is a beautiful restored old house in the old Karoo cottage style and with its old wooden floors, windows and modern decorated interior, it is a home away from home you will never forget.

The guest house has 8 suites, each decorated to perfection. One of them with its own living area and kitchenette, ideal for a family of three to four or for that special honeymoon night. With its four rooms the guest house can accommodate 9 guests – 2 double rooms with queen size beds, 1 room with two single beds and the suite with its queen size and single bed. All rooms are air-conditioned and equipped with a bar fridge, satellite TV, lovely bathrooms and stylish linen and towels. A full English breakfast is served every morning and dinner is also available on request.

De Kalkfontein Guest Farm offers tourists/guests absolute Karoo farm hospitality. It is situated 45 km from Prieska on the Marydale to Upington road. The original farm house was built in 1895 and restored in 2002. The house has 4 bedrooms, sleep 8, bathroom, kitchen and lounge area. Self catering. Also a lovely “Lapa” and “braai” area. Come and experience the Karoo nights in the “veld” around a fire, go for walks, drives or just to rest! Nothing fancy but you will definitely find yourself here!!
