The place to stay in Vredendal - your "home away from home"

Your hostess is Ronell van Zyl who will welcome you and see to your every need.

Experience the countryside in absolute splendour. Tharrakamma in Nama (Bushman Language) translates to "Rouge River", a river that bursts its bank frequently and feeds a pleasure garden of plants, trees and vineyards.

From this base you can explore the strange beauty and tranquility of Namaqualand and the unspoiled beaches of the West Coast.

Tharrakamma is an 18 room upmarket guest house with modern decorated rooms, specially created for your convenience and comfort (privacy respected). Spacious on the inside, as well as on the outside with garden seating, a swimming pool and barbecue facilities.

Breakfast is served in our mutual dining room or on the porch - wherever it suits you best. We provide lunch & dinner on request, however, for the independent individual, we also offer a self-catering option. With the stamp of approval you can always be assured of the high standards you'll experience throughout your stay.

"neat and clean"

"Stayed over for a business trip. Room is modern, clean and bedding was fresh, Pillows are a bit bulky and need to be softer and thinner. Breakfast was on par with most B&B's. Overall, a worthwhile place to stay when visiting Vredendal."

"Good Stay"

"Staff was great. Room was clean with a great bathroom. Stayed there overnight for a business trip and was very happy with the stay. While Vredendal is not the largest town around, the guest house is located in a nice area and close enough to everything."

"Good stay in Vredendal"

"My colleague and I stayed here for one night on a business trip. The manager Ronel is very friendly and made our stay a pleasure. She went out of her way to assist me when I fell ill during the night (she drove me to the hospital). The room I stayed in (7a) is brand new. It has one double and one single bed. There is a huge bathroom which was very comfortable. The room itself opens onto a small driveway which was quite bland at the time. It looked like they were planning on planting a flowerbed. Stayed July 2014, travelled on business"

"Just Right"

"I stop in Vredendal often for business. The rooms are neat,clean and nicely decorated and today was no exception. Friendly welcome is your first encounter and a nice full belly will send you on your way in the morning. My first choice to stay in Vredendal. Remember to book at least a week ahead as they are almost always fully booked! Stayed July 2014, travelled with friends"
