Halfaampieskraal Farm, Overberg

Halfaampieskraal is just outside of Napier and ‘the perfect place to do nothing at all’. The farm has gorgeous luxury interiors and it produces pure merino wool, down, wheat, barley and canola.

An overnight stay in the Overberg with warm hearted hospitality and wholesome home cooking …the emphasis is on individual comfort.

The farm has converted a string of outbuildings that once housed the blacksmiths forge, a school room and a wind powered generator. Each room has its own private bathroom in a stylish lean-to added to the back of the buildings. The bedrooms are extremely cosy as the walls are solid clay and more than 90cm thick, having been plastered and insulated with straw and manure then white washed. Sumptuous rustic eiderdowns with luxury cotton linens feel Simply Chic!

I love the vast vistas of rolling wheat fields which are constantly changing through the seasons with a kaleidoscope of colours perfect for painting, photographing, hiking or just simply observing.

We visited in winter and we just didn’t want to leave …ever! Love, love, love Halfaampieskraal!

Parties are held in a converted barn, the iconic and revolutionary Club Havana, which is just such fun! Dress up in your best garb, and wear those decadent heels that you have been saving for this occasion!

Halfaampieskraal is available on dinner, bed and breakfast basis.
Lunch on request ….or drop in at the choice of excellent local restaurants in nearby Napier or go to the beach in Arniston or shop in Greyton! Or just stay put and do nothing at all.

Perfect Hideaways RENTAL T&Cs.pdf



We’ve scoured South Africa and further, so that we can bring you only the best places that ooze personality, that are situated in spectacular locations, that make you feel good to be there and that promise an unforgettable escape.

Perfect Hideaways has a portfolio of farms, villas, houses, cottages and boutique hotels – each unique, each with huge character and each handpicked because of their individual beauty, quirks and charm. Perfect Hideaways wants to take you to a place that appeals to your every sense… transport you to a world away from the one you know… and match you to your ideal getaway.

The Perfect Hideaways team travels far and wide to find extraordinary holiday and weekend escapes for fellow escapists. Neverending country vistas, rugged coastlines, pristine beaches and mountain views. These are part and parcel of life in South Africa and what better way to experience them by getting away for two or perhaps ten nights to a beautifully designed, comfortable and inviting space?

The Perfect Hideaways team spends a large part of the year scouting new locations and out-of-the-box havens they know their clients will love. Places where lying in a hammock all day is encouraged, where the kids can run barefoot and free from early till sunset, where nights are about stargazing and the days for as doing as little or as much as you like. All in achingly beautiful surrounds.

Now with over thirty extraordinary holiday escapes on their books, Perfect Hideaways has honed their recipe for success. They love unusual destinations, places like the quaint properties they represent in the tucked away village of Churchhaven or the exclusive stone built house hidden in a kloof in the Karoo - each chosen for their design, location and thoughtfully appointed interiors with all the luxury details to ensure guests’ comfort at every turn. Most importantly the spaces created have a sense of soul –that special something that ensures you’ll want to come back again and again.

Owners David and Helen Untiedt started Perfect Hideaways five years ago and in this time have visited hundreds of properties all over the Western Cape and surrounds to see whether they have that X factor. They love combining easy living with luxe details and their attention to creating places where guests want for nothing is part of their success.

You can be guaranteed that every single property in their repertoire is extraordinary. Visit Waterfall Farm, a working farm with a sprawling farmhouse and accompanying stone cottage and spend your days lolling about in mountain stream fed rock pools. Or book a holiday at the Beach house in Brittania Bay, drinking in the brilliant ocean views from the sheltered stoep. There are city properties, seaside spaces, country idylls and river view escapes waiting to be enjoyed and appreciated. And each of them has the Perfect Hideaways stamp of approval.
