The Monkey Manor

Imagine a life in the country, away from the rush of the city. Imagine waking to the call of birds and the chattering of monkeys. Now bring yourself back from those dreams and make it happen...

Situated on a farm just outside Somerset West, the Monkey Manor offers gracious holiday accommodation with warm hospitality. The central location of our guesthouse makes it the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Helderberg area, including towns such as Strand, Somerset West and Gordon’s Bay.

Relax in our colonial-style home, set in a tranquil lush garden, full of indigenous trees & shrubs with abundant bird life. Our accommodation offers attractions such as our picnic area, our own Cheeky Monkey Restaurant and our primate centre (Monkey Town), all of which are just a short walk away.

Our Home is Your Home

If you feel like inviting a few friends over to have a braai (the South African version of a BBQ for those who are not yet accustomed to our traditions), we have a huge recreational area with comfortable, modern furniture, a bar and a Jacuzzi with a full view of our pond and garden. We also have a television in the recreation room if you wish to follow important sport events. Our communal living room is tastefully furnished with comfortable seats, a fireplace and fine African art. Here you can sit back and relax with a book while a crackling fire keeps the cold night away. Our dining room can seat twelve people – ideal if you want to treat business partners to a breakfast.

Tasteful and Quick Meals

Most of our guests enjoy their meals at the Cheeky Monkey Pub & Grill for a very good reason. The service is fast, the air is fresh and the food is good.

Just a few steps away from our guest house you will run into our open-air, fully licensed restaurant. Our tables are arranged on a large wooden deck in front of the pub and kitchen, overlooking our picnic area, swimming pools and play park.

All our food is freshly prepared from the finest ingredients. On our menu we have breakfast starting from R38, a range of toasted sandwiches served with crispy fries and snack baskets. For the hungry, we have burgers served with fries; salads such as the Chicken Strip Salad, Beef Strip Salad, Smoked Salmon Salad or the Greek Salad; fresh Hake, Chicken Schnitzel, or the Mixed Grill platter.

Roseline & Andre

Always fluttering about, making sure that everyone and everything is alright, this couple will pamper you, amuse you and talk your head off if you even look slightly bored. And do they have stories to tell!

Both have travelled the world extensively in their time, from Europe, the Middle East to Canada. Rose had made it her life's work to look after and care for wild life and was the founder of the Monkey Town Primate Centre. As a young man, Andre was a member of the South African Air Force where he acquired a taste for communications technology.

Now both retired, Rose and Andre keep themselves busy with the Monkey Manor. And they are doing a wonderful job looking after and entertaining their guests.
