About the property

5 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom, 17 Sleeps

River Queen is situated on the banks of the mighty Breede River in the Lower Breede River Conservancy. Only 250km from Cape Town and the Garden Route, Breede River Queen offers the ideal accommodation to nature-loving groups and families.

The house is a combination of rustic charm and upmarket convenience, tailored for entertainment and equipped to make you feel at home. We rent out the house in its entirety on a boutique styled self-catering basis.

The River Queen is a large double storey house (300m2) designed for welcoming groups of friends, large family gatherings, birthdays, anniversary or corporate getaways…

This beautiful house has five uniquely decorated bedrooms, of which all have queen-size beds (which can sleep 10 people). Four of these rooms have en-suite bathrooms while one makes use of a private bathroom.

There are also two spacious living areas, and sunrooms with extra beds if needed for larger groups (1 double bed and 3 single beds in the sunrooms + 1 sleeper couch in the lounge) which can sleep 7 people.

The fully equipped kitchen is ideal for all of your self-catering needs and meals can be enjoyed in the dining area, as well as in the front stoep overlooking the garden and the swimming pool, and in the lapa with views on the Breede river.

The property encourages guests to unwind by taking a dip in the swimming pool, or by relaxing in the hammock and hanging beds in the garden. Guests can also relax in the sunrooms while appreciating the views of the river and the lush garden below.

The house also has its private jetty, ensuring that water lovers will not be disappointed.

Enjoy activities such as canoeing, kayaking and fishing in the river.

Guests can bring their own boat or rent one of the River Queen boats (additional cost). The village has 2 slipways and a small petrol station.

After a day of adventure, guests can spend some time in the entertainment area by playing a game of pool, foosball, ping pong or darts... admire the breathtaking sunsets on the river, and enjoy a braai underneath the stars in the garden or by the jetty, before having a drink at the bar, or curling up with a good book next to the fire.

The Activities:

Young and old, sporty and chilled, indoor and outdoor... there is something for everyone!

The space is perfect for entertaining, relaxing and enjoying various indoor activities thanks to our entertainment area: billiard table, foosball, ping pong, dartboard, board games...

Many outdoor activities are also possible, from our house, our private jetty on the Breede river and in the area: fishing, wake boarding, whale watching, kite surfing, bird watching, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, picnics along the sandbanks and much more....

The Area:

The Breede River is the longest navigable river in South Africa with a tidal action that reaches 60km upstream. It is recognized as one of the best fishing estuaries in South Africa with an extraordinary abundance and diversity of fish, bird species and wildlife. The Breede Riverine village is perfectly situated for exploring the Overberg as well as different nature reserves like the De Hoop Nature reserve which boasts the largest whale nursery (breeding area) in the Southern Hemisphere. Other charming riverside and coastal villages can be explored in the area. Two pubs are situated nearby, accessible on boat or car: the Boat house and the Bush pub.

Minimum stay: 2 nights.

Guests have access to the entire house on a self catering basis and the private jetty. Services like cleaning, guide tours, fishing and boating can be arranged.
