Elly's Place   

About Venue


In the quaint village of DARLING, you will find Elly’s Place, a charming guest house that offers a full bed and breakfast with a DUTCH TOUCH.

Situated 85km from Cape Town, South Africa and 25km inland from the Atlantic Ocean on the Cape West Coast, you will be treated to stunning views and experience true Darling hospitality.


We offer comfortable accommodation in a rustic and tranquil environment. Two double rooms with full en suite bathroom and own private entrance.  One room has a queen size bed and the other  room has two single beds.  French doors lead from your room onto a covered patio with a braai (BBQ) and pool area. Relax in the garden, at the pool and listen to the many indigenous birds.

A wooden hut in the garden has a shower room and is situated next to the pool.  It has a double bed and fridge, coffee/tea tray, ceiling fan.

Full breakfast is served every morning.  Tea & Coffee tray in the room. A fridge on the stoep and the cottage to keep your drinks cool.

Allow me to spoil you with my cooking, which I love. I do home cooking four days a week, Monday through to Thursday and guests are welcome to sit down at my table for dinner.  Just let me know before arrival if you would like to “eat in”  and bring your own wine.

Elly’s Bed & Breakfast was started when your host, Elly Genang, bought this lovely property in 2011 and promptly moved to Darling in the Western Cape. Darling is a wonderful place to unwind and forget about the city stresses. It is surrounded by typical Swartland farms of which the mainstay activities would include: Wheat-, Lupin-, Dairy-, Nguni Cattle-, Sheep- and ofcourse Olive- and fine Wine farming.  Evita’s Perron is a must visit and now we have Darling Brew.

About your host: Elly was born & raised in the Netherlands, but has spent most of her adult life in South Africa. She is renowned for her cooking & baking skills and will make any guest feel right at home, all be it with a touch of Dutch!


Our village has many things to offer.  There is Evita’s  Perron with satirical displays, a restaurant, arts & crafts and regular shows.

There’s Darling Museum where you can revisit Darling’s pioneering days.

Ofcourse a visit to the various wine & olive farms is a must and there are welcoming restaurants down and near our Main road.

In and around Darling there are many routes and reserves where you can walk and see beautiful indigenous flowers and many other Renosterveld fauna & flora.
