Jonkmanshof: 30 Bath - Suite 2

  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

Jonkmanshof comprises two 19th-century Cape Dutch-style homes in Bath Street that were lovingly renovated with lashings of design flair – courtesy of Jacques Erasmus of Cape Town’s Hemelhuijs fame and his business partner Hein Liebenberg.

Located in a quiet side street just off the main road, both homes offer spellbinding views of mountains, orchards and gardens. Inside, the owners have given the houses a fresh lease on life, while preserving key features, such as original wooden floorboards and high ceilings, and adding some warm country-style touches, such as exposed river-reed ceilings and a selection of the finest antiques and furniture.

Every room is an immersive artwork, every object and antique considered – but it’s comfortable too, with thick lime-plastered walls, fireplaces, cashmere blankets, underfloor heating, a wood-burning Aga stove in the kitchen/dining area at 20 Bath, and homemade liqueurs such as limoncello, vin d’orange and kumquatcelle from the courtyard orchard. There are magical gardens to explore and farm dam-style pools to dip in, too, but you’re also a short walk from the town’s attractions.


Each of the two homes has two boutique suites. You can choose to rent out the whole house (or both homes to sleep a total of eight) for exclusive use, or book on a per-room basis. Suite Two at 30 Bath is a wonderful sunny suite with a beautiful antique wardrobe and a comfortable reading chair. The extra large bathroom has a double door that leads to the terrace and garden.
