An independent little cottage for those that like to self-cater.
Our guesthouse won’t be complete without an independent little cottage for those that would like to self-cater. It is very popular for short term as well as long term stays.
GRANITE GREY is an independent, safe and secure unit with its own little garden, kitchenette and veranda where you can have a traditional braai overlooking the famous Paarl Rock. The name Granite Grey is chosen in honour of the school that formed so many of South Africa’s leaders in business, sport and culture, Paarl Boy’s High, and which is the alma mater of the owner.
HEREWITH THE SCHOOLS’ ANTHEM REFERRING TO THE NAME OF OUR SELF-CATERING UNIT:
Neath the far-famed rock of granite grey
Stands a school the best all people say
Boys and youths to train and educate
Model men to rear for Church and State
Or for tended field, for track and sporting ground
And its name and fame throughout the land resound.
For the school, renowned from Berg to Vaal
Is the Boys’ High School of Upper Paarl.
Of all the school throughout the land
Alma Mater thou shalt stand.
Supreme and great far o’er the rest
Highly honoured, glorious and blessed.
Our guesthouse would not be complete without a room named after the Paarl.
When our village was founded at the foot of Paarl Rock in 1690, it was named Paarl. The name in Dutch means "a pearl" and was derived from the fact that the granite rocks (Paarl Rock) which crown the hillside above our town glistened after rainfall like pearls or diamonds. Pearl in Afrikaans is ‘pêrel’.
The Perfect Haven to Unwind
Our guestroom, TRANQUILLITY, is where peace and quiet become your companions. Indulgence in the elegance of crispy, white linen, an inviting kitchenette, a comfortable seating area and double doors leading to a serene veranda with a garden view. The room is set alongside our established green garden with views of wise old trees and the communal pool to cool off in summer.
Spacious and dreamy.
