Gourikwa Reserve is one of the most unique private reserves along the South African coastline. With 5km of pristine coastline, a rich variety of indigenous fauna and flora and facilities ranging from top class accommodation to a beachfront chapel and a state of the art wedding facility. Previously known as Reins Reserve, we have reverted to the original Gourikwa and have made major upgrades to the reserve. Located in the heart of the scenic Garden Route, the 2000ha reserve is nestled between Mosselbay and Stillbay and is only a 30min drive away from the George Airport. This is truly a gem in the Garden Route crown.
Whether you are craving a weekend breakaway or a longer holiday, Gourikwa Reserve’s accommodation will surpass your expectations. We offer three types of units: Gourikwa Cottages, Fisherman Houses and Single Rooms in the Villas. All units have recently been refurbished and sleeps 2 to 6 people depending on the unit size. Each unit has its own unique charm and offers spectacular sea views.
The Cottages are all less than 100m from the shore break, making every morning a unique experience. There are a total of 6 deluxe Cottages all fully equipped with a kitchenette, built-in braai and spacious rooms. Five of the cottages have double rooms that sleeps 4 people and one unit sleeps 2. All rooms have their own bathroom and all linen and towels are provided. Wifi and Dstv are provided in each cottage.
The 9 fisherman’s houses are all freestanding units spread out along the coast. They provide spectacular views of the seafront and the lighthouse. 8 Units sleep 4 people and 1 of the units sleeps 6. These houses are more rustic than the Cottages, yet each unit has its own character. All units have a fully equipped kitchenette, a cozy fireplace inside and a spacious patio with built-in braai facing the sea. All linen and towels are provided. Wifi is provided in each room.
The Villas are each divided into 5 bedrooms with an open plan living area. Most rooms have a kitchenette with a medium sized fridge and coffee station. (Please confirm your room specifications after booking.) The bathroom consists of a Shower, Bath, Toilet and Single Basin. Wifi and Dstv are provided in each room. Patio furniture is available for guests and mobile braais can be supplied.
