The Evertsdal Guesthouse is situated on the land that previously belonged to "Evertsdal", the original historic wine farm, about 20 kilometers north of the City of Cape Town. “Evertsdal” was an old Dutch reference to the wild boar found in this valley. It has since become Eversdal, an upmarket Cape Town residential suburb. Whilst no wild boars are seen any more, the area has retained many features of its original character. Wild geese and guinea fowl have made the various dams and streams their nesting place and give Eversdal its tranquil, almost rural atmosphere.
Eversdal is situated just outside the village of Durbanville. Durbanville is renowned for its wine farms, and the estates along the Durbanville Wine Route have won many acclaims in recent years. Eversdal is furthermore ideally situated halfway between the City of Cape Town and various other historic wine route towns of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Wellington.
The Evertsdal Guesthouse is a luxurious guesthouse comprising ten large double bedrooms all with designer en-suite bathrooms and kitchenettes. The rooms are superbly appointed and all have balconies with views of the lovely Hottentots-Holland mountain range or the designer gardens of the Guesthouse.
Guests can enjoy a choice of full English or continental breakfast.Dinner is provided on request and includes traditional cuisine complemented with local wines from the Durbanville area.
