About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 15

At River Queen, we are constantly redefining the self-catering accommodation experience, with an eclectic blend of fun and function. We renovated this holiday home to share with friends and family. After many happy years on the Breede river, we have decided to let you in on this unique and exclusive holiday rental.
The house is a combination of rustic charm and upmarket convenience, tailored for entertainment and equipped to make you feel at home. We rent out the house in its entirety on a boutique styled self-catering basis.

River Queen is the original old house in the Breede Riverine Village, located on the banks of the mighty Breede River in the Lower Breede River Conservancy. The Breede River Estuary and its surrounds are one of the Cape's best kept secrets. The area is home to the De Hoop Nature Reserve, Witsand, the Whale Trail and the Bontebok National Park.

The River Queen is situated 250km from Cape Town and the Garden Route. This un-spoilt piece of paradise hosts the largest Whale Nursery in the Southern Hemisphere, one of South Africa’s longest navigable rivers and largest estuary.

Creating the perfect backdrop for fishing, wake boarding, boating, kite surfing, bird watching, mountain biking and hiking or perhaps you just want to relax and enjoy!

The River Queen is a large double storey house (300m2).
There is a large central open plan kitchen, fully equipped with gas stove, scullery with dish washer and laundry.
The space is perfect for welcoming a group of friends, a large family gathering, birthdays, anniversary or corporate getaways…
There are 5 double bedrooms (4 en suite) + 1 extra guest bathroom (upstairs) + 1 guest toilet (downstairs), 2 lounges each with a fireplace, 2 sun rooms (with extra beds) with views on the river and the dam, a balcony and a patio.
There are 2 fireplaces, a large bar, and an entertainment area (billiard table, foosball, dartboard, games...)

The House has a large swimming pool in a lush garden.
It has a direct access to its own private jetty on the river. From the house, you can enjoy various outdoor activities (like fishing, wake boarding, kite surfing, boating, bird watching, hiking and swimming, canoeing, cycling, picnics along the sandbanks and much more...)

Its all here for the cold & rainy days, the evenings and those hangover days...
You can do anything you want in this cosy house: relaxing by the fire, watching movies or sport games on the large screen TV, playing board games, pool table, table tennis, foos ball, darts or spend your time cooking in the open plan kitchen or drinking with your friends in the bar overlooking the river...

For the sporty ones there is the river, swimming pool, petanque, volley ball, etc...Or you can chill in the sun rooms, by the pool, in our hammocks, in the garden... there are many places dedicated to doing 'nothing'!
