About Us

Green Gables Guest House has been developed to provide a high level of comfort and privacy. At the same time a conscious effort has been made to retain the character of the property. Our aim is to provide our guests with good comfortable accommodation and a high level of service.

In accordance with the Section 9(1) of the Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment Act 53 of 2003, Green Gables is classified as an Exempted Micro Enterprise (EME) and is therefore exempted from being measured against any BEE scorecard. This gives you a BEE recognition level of 100%.

The Guest House

The 4 bedrooms and 2 self-catering units, which have fully equipped kitchens, are all en-suite with private entrances. The dining room and the residents’ lounge are situated next to the pool and are totally separate from the accommodation.

Historical Significance

The residents lounge is situated in the building that was originally Schull's trading store. Constructed in 1906, the store stood in front of the original farmhouse. The building unofficially served as Rivonia's first post office until 1912. A later owner, Mr. Miller also provided a taxi service to the residents of this old farming area. Some older residents of Rivonia still refer to this building as 'the old post office building'. The original building was lovingly restored, urbanized  and tastefully renovated to catch today’s feel!!
