Luxury Guest House Accommodation on the West Coast

Side view of the guest house.

Welcome to The River House!

Set on the banks of the Berg River in Velddrif, the River House offers luxury West Coast accommodation for up to six guests. Velddrif, which started off as a small fishing community, is a popular destination for family holidays, fishing trips, water sport events and much more. Just off the River House's veranda, you'll find the Laaiplek slipway, where locals launch their fishing boats and often return from sea with hulls filled to brim with the day's catch.


Guest House Facilities

The guest house can accommodate up to six guests, making it perfect for family vacations, or weekends away with a group of friends. Besides the ample sleeping space, this self-catering guest house features two large braais and a comfortable living area that opens up onto a veranda.



The Berg River mouth flows past Velddrif - an authentic West Coast fishing town. The River House is situated between Port Owen and Laaiplek, where one can enjoy the best of both worlds: the wide Berg River and the vast beaches of the West Coast.


Velddrif Gallery

From fishing to diving and water sports to relaxing on the veranda, the picturesque West Coast is the amateur photographer's paradise. Our growing gallery features pictures of the guest house, the Berg River, Velddrif and the West Coast in general.

The West Coast also offers visitors and locals alike some exciting activities. A few that come to mind include sea and river fishing, seeing the beautifully colourful flowers in the Darling area, scenic drives and walks to West Coast destinations such as Yzerfontein, Langebaan and Saldanha, horseback beach-rides, and much more. The Berg River Canoe Marathon ends only a few hundred meters from your Port Owen accommodation. What's more, with prior arrangement you can even dock your yacht right in front of the house!
