In the little hamlet of Irene, lies the Gem built from the stone unearthed from the ground on which this magnificent house was built.

The rustic Dolomite walls ensconce the perfect marriage of wood and stone, perfectly harmonising, creating a warm and inviting interior where you can feel the history enveloping you.

Lavish in the omnipresent earthy essence and enjoy exquisite service while being treated like a revered family member. With rooms offering equal parts relaxation, and facilitation of creativity, this Avant-garde wonder is the ideal home away from home.

  • Very friendly owners provided me with an option for dinner which was great. Breakfast was one of the best I have had in a guest house in years.

  • I travel extensively and stay in many hotels. The Bastion House is the best kept secret in SA! I have never felt more welcomed, comfortable and at home anywhere.

  • The breakfast was totally out of this world, nothing I ever experienced before. The rooms were absolutely stunning and the most comfortable beds! We are actually going back in 2 weeks' time.
