Verbeel Studio Cottage

Welcome to Verbeel Studio Cottage; the premises where the local municipality once paid out its monthly pensions. This pension building was bought by Liezl Dick in 2003, “with scholarship money for a mere song” to serve as a break-away home. In 2009, she transformed it into a habitable space, when a toilet, kitchenette and porch were added. Imagine sitting on a stoep and watching the sun set or waking up and watching the sun rise behind the Witteberge and the church beckoning you. You can now do this and so much more on Rosendal when you stay in Verbeel Studio Cottage.

A quirky and quaint bachelor studio cottage that sleeps 2 comfortably on a double bed, nestled aside a charming rose garden. This unique guesthouse offers a truly enchanting escape for those seeking a delightful stay. The decor is a medley of vintage and artistic elements, creating an atmosphere that is both nostalgic and eclectic. From carefully curated artwork to quirky knick-knacks, every corner tells a story waiting to be discovered.

The studio itself is cosy yet spacious enough for 2, offering all the essentials for a comfortable stay. The bed is adorned with fresh linens and ample pillows, promising a peaceful night’s sleep. The seating area on the veranda invites you to kick back and relax, complete with daybeds and cosy armchairs and a small coffee table, perfect for savouring a hot cup of tea or cool drinks while enjoying the views.

As you venture out, you’ll find yourself surrounded by the enchanting beauty of the rose garden. In summer the intoxicating fragrance fills the air, inviting you to take a leisurely stroll amidst a kaleidoscope of vibrant blooms to fireplace boma. Whether you’re a horticulture enthusiast or simply seeking solace in nature, our garden is a haven of tranquillity that will captivate and invigorate your senses.

The cottage features a well-equipped kitchenette with all the features you need – small fridge, microwave, electric kettle and gas burner. You can whip up delicious meals using fresh ingredients from the monthly market or local shops & deli. Enjoy your culinary creations at the cosy dining nook, overlooking the rose garden, or even take them outside and have a picnic amidst the fragrant blossoms.

In the evenings, soak up the magical ambiance of the garden as the sun sets. It’s the perfect backdrop for a romantic dinner or a quiet moment of reflection. At Verbeel, you’ll experience a unique blend of comfort and a touch of whimsy. Whether you’re seeking a peaceful retreat or a romantic getaway, our guesthouse promises an unforgettable stay amidst the charm of the rose garden.
