Luxury Karoo Guest Farm


Built in the 18th century, the old Mirtehof farmstead has its roots stretching deep into the soil and rich history of Prince Albert. It remembers the broken heart of a young CJ Langenhoven. It breathes the quiet magic of the sunny Karoo, looks up with joy to the epic starry skies, and carries the hopes and dreams of those exploring its treasures.

We opened our doors in September 2018 and even though the farm is far from a new kid on the block, we’re a five star luxury accommodation option. We’re perfect for a Karoo honeymoon, a rejuvenating break from the concrete jungle, or a well-deserved romantic escape.

Mirtehof is perfectly located on the edge of town. Guests wake up to the relaxed ambience of a small working farm, with beautiful views of the surrounding landscape, especially from the stoep. Breakfast is an authentic local affair, enhanced by what is crispy, fresh and tasty from our garden.

Whether you unwind on the stoep, take a walk to visit our donkeys or enjoy some breathtaking birding, there’s always something to do. Mirtehof is also a great base to explore the town and surroundings with an abundance of activities and experiences just waiting to be discovered.

Wonderful Hospitality

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and divine high tea when we visited you last week. We truly appreciate your hospitality and pride in showcasing the Magnificent Mirtehof. Thank you and I trust you will have much return business from the operators of actually experiencing Mirtehof for themselves.

Extraordinary beautiful and five star service!

Mirtehof Guest house has one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever experienced and superb location! Absolutely exquisitely furnished, excellently trained staff and an amazing manager, Elouise, made ever moment of our stay memorable. The attention to detail was seen in every aspect of this five star establishment! I fell in love with the most beautiful curtains in the Prince Albert room.

Spectacular five star Guest House

Stunning Guest House, worth the Five Stars they advertise. The garden is spectacular and so is the Prince Albert Suite. The place is worth the trip alone. Breakfast is simply superb, I definitely recommend this spot of paradise on earth.
