Melissa’s Guest House

Welcome to Melissa’s Guest House


The Hart of any home is friendliness, followed with clean and fresh rooms and let’s not forget the great aroma of traditional food prepared with love by our chefs. Our home is your home!

We do not allow any guest to stay with us and have a complaint which is not attended to. Our guest will be attended to at all times, and we are willing to walk the extra Karoo mile just for you!

This beautiful town, called De Aar is established in 1903. The name, De Aar, which means “the artery” is a reference underground water supply. That’s correct, this little town has its own secret oasis underground right in the middle of the Karoo.

It will only be suitable to stay in oasis of your own when visiting De Aar, that’s right we are waiting on your call!
