Welcome to Kalm Guest House in Clarens. Colourful, stylish, well appointed accommodation spread across two modern homes and a cottage set in magnificent gardens.

Situated in an older more established Clarens “suburb” known as the Swartland, Kalm Guest House is within easy walking distance (1km) of the village square, and also the surrounding hills for the more energetic. Being slightly distant from the centre of town means quiet days and nights away from the hustle and bustle on busy weekends!

We have five rooms : “Somebody’s”, “Anybody’s”, “Theirs”, “Yours” and “Whose ?” which are available on a bed only , or a bed and breakfast basis.


See the “Rooms” page for details, which also gives information on facilities for the disabled.

But please come back to look at the pictures of summer 2016/2017 and the snow of August 2012.

Summer 2016/2017


Snow of August 2012; it was a memorable occasion!!

 Kalm 1 and 2“Whose?” cottage

As you can see in the lee of the grey ball, we had nearly six inches, it was great fun!!!

On the 11th October, we held a birthday party at Kalm for a very special family member who turned 90 on that day. With family descending on Clarens from around the country and abroad, and summer rains forecast, we took the precaution to provide cover for the occasion. A bedouin tent was erected, straddling the garden, which provided a wonderful setting that may well be used for weddings and other special functions.



We’ve had the tent up again, this time for a wedding –
