Welcome to Housemartin Guest House.
About our Guest House name.
We are named after the European swallows (called House-martins) that visit South Africa every summer. They make their nests against buildings, mainly near outside doors. We have quite a few nests against the building near entrances, so we decided to name the guest house after them. Like the House-martins, our guests return to us time and time again.
