Pet Friendly Accommodation
Pet Friendly Accommodation Durbanville, Near Cape Town
At Rondekuil Estates we welcome all kinds of pets with open hearts! As long as guests make arrangements with us prior to their stay, you are more than welcome to bring your well behaved dogs, cats, or even birds, along. Because accommodation units are routinely fumigated, after being occupied by guests who have pets, a small charge of R150 is made in order to cover fumigation costs.
Rondekuil Estates is like a small spread-out village so, generally speaking, pets do not create a significant nuisance for other guests staying on the property. We also rely on owners to exercise adequate control over their pets.
Our Pet Friendly Accommodation Options Include:
The Valley House is a spacious house with three nice sized bedrooms. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and the other two bedrooms, located at the end of a wide passageway, share a bathroom. There is a large open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room, as well as a guest toilet.
A five metre wide veranda runs along the north-facing side of the house from where there are lovely views of the countryside and the Koeberg towards the tree-lined Diep River. This veranda provides a nice space to relax and entertain and to enjoy a braai/barbeque. The house is surrounded by an enclosed attractive landscaped garden, which is an excellent area for containing children and pets.
The Rondawel comfortably sleeps six and offers a main bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom, and two more bedrooms, which share a family bathroom.

The large garden surrounding the pet friendly accommodation Rondawel, is fully enclosed and offers shaded areas so pets can be allowed to play or exercise safely. This unit is ideal for all breeds of dogs, especially more active dogs that enjoy a romp around the garden.
The Old Farm House has been divided into three separate, comfortable accommodation apartments, each with a double bedroom, a lounge-cum-dining room, its own kitchen and bathroom. These units are usually let out on a medium-to long-term basis, but are periodically available for short-term lets.
Each unit has its own entrance and, being an original old farm house, the rooms are large and the walls relatively thick, ensuring privacy and pleasant room temperatures. The house has plenty of old-world charm and character and offers access to verandas and gardens, which are nice for relaxing and entertaining.
The units are pet friendly, with suitably enclosed gardens and grassed areas to keep your pets comfortable and safe. They don’t call us ‘Pet friendly accommodation Cape Town’ for nothing!

To make sure that guests understand the rules and regulations concerning the pet friendly accommodation offered by Rondekuil, please take the time to read the policy and warning below:
Policy – Pet friendly accommodation:
All dogs, cats, caged birds and any other well-behaved pets are welcome all year round. If pets sleep inside – please bring own pet beds and bowls. Pets are NOT permitted on the beds and furniture and pets must be free of ticks and fleas upon arrival. There is easy access to walkways from all the accommodation units. Dogs must be leashed at all times when outside, or not contained in the enclosed areas surrounding the accommodation units.
There are cows and calves that are kept in camps near the main yard/werf of the farm and guests need to ensure that their dogs do not chase/interfere with these relatively tame cattle. Guests must clean up after their pets. Consideration must be given to resident dogs, cats, and other farm animals. Pets stay FREE, however, guests are responsible for paying for any damage caused by their pets.
Rondekuil is a farm and, like many areas in the Cape at certain times of the year, ticks and snakes are to be found, especially in areas where the grass is long. It is therefore essential that pets are treated for ticks before and after their visit to Rondekuil, and that clients understand that we cannot be held responsible for any illnesses caused by bites from any insect or reptile.
