Accommodation in Jongensfontein
Little Rock Guesthouse is situated off the beaten track, where the road ends, a mere 10km’s from Stilbaai on the Garden Route towards Cape Town. A true gem in the small, charming town of Jongensfontein. With unrestricted views of the Indian Ocean, lovely sunrises and sunsets, Little Rock epitomises serenity on your doorstep.
Our family owns a holiday home just three houses down the street from the guesthouse and having spent many happy childhood holidays in Jongensfontein, it just seemed like a sign and a dream come true, when the guesthouse came into the market. With its proximity to the seaside, as well as the amazing views of the ocean, it was a no-brainer to start extending our current portfolio.
Having been involved in the hospitality industry, with Elephant Plains Game Lodge for the past 19 years, we have become known for our unpretentious hospitality and warm, friendly atmosphere. Little Rock Guesthouse, being situated in the unspoilt, rugged nature of the Garden Route, lends itself to this same hearty, home-away-from-home feeling. What better way to start your day than with the smell of freshly brewed coffee, home-made rusks and unspoiled oceanic views? Step over the street and you are on the beach, or go on an adventure with various activities in the area. The sound of waves, crashing just outside your bedroom window, will lull you off to a deep night’s sleep.
Whether en-route to Cape Town, or as a holiday destination in itself, Little Rock Guesthouse is sure to allure you into returning again and again.
The guesthouse will ultimately sleep 14 guests in total, with seven en-suite bedrooms, six of which is currently in use. All of the rooms have sea views, either from private viewing decks or balconies. The rooms include the option of a king size, or twin beds. They also include a mini bar and tea / coffee station, electronic safe, a flat screen TV with a DSTV hospitality bouquet, a fan, as well as bathroom amenities. Two of the bedrooms also include sleeper couches for smaller children. An extra single bed can be added in some of the rooms, if space permits.
Little Rock currently operates as a B&B. Breakfast consists of freshly baked pastries, served together with continental options and a hot breakfast, ordered from the kitchen. We are also offering guests the option of “braai” packages for the evenings. These packages include meat options, a side dish selection, as well as a garden salad. Utensils, crockery, cutlery and spices are provided. Guests have a choice of indoor or outdoor braai facilities, weather permitting. Other home-made dinner options would be introduced over time. Jongensfontein also has a restaurant and Stilbaai has a wide selection of eateries, to suit every taste. We are planning to start serving light lunches, as well as catering for small, intimate functions in the near future.
