Both Elfen House and Elfen Cottage take their names

from our dear friends Dr Jan and Elf van Heerden  

and are dedicated to them. 


Dr Jan was better known as the prolific writer, Dr Jan van Elfen.

He and his wife Elf lived in the house

   and the cottage was his last consulting room until his retirement in 2007,   

after which Elf transformed it into a guest cottage.

While we have added our own decorative touches to the premises,

we have retained the name.


Elfen House is an elegant Karoo house which offers self-catering accommodation for four guests in tranquil surroundings
