Nestled at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountains is the quiet and serene village of Prince Albert. Here time is suspended in the dry and crisp Karoo air. 

With its thatched roof and wooden floors, Onse Rus (circ 1852) has the character and comfort of an old farmhouse. 

You will immediately feel at home as you slow down to the relaxed pace of country life and take time to experience simple beauty. 

Follow the menu to discover more about our Guesthouse, 

the village and the spectacular scenery which surrounds us.

“It has been a privilege to come for two nights. We will hold these memories forever in our hearts. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.”
