Our history

Tranquility opened its doors in 1997.

  A dream of Ron and Gill’s to welcome and serve incredible and wonderful people from the nations of the world.  They in turn brought love and friendship and touched their lives.

After 20 years of running this dream guest house they handed the baton over to the new owners, Jan and Bonny Vat, who will have the privilege of meeting their past faithful guests and the many new ones who enter these doors!

Ron and Gill will be moving to an apartment in Simon’s Town early 2018 but in the meantime will be staying close at hand to help with the transition. This will ensure that the true values of Tranquility will remain the same as they will have much time to instill all that they have learnt over the past 20 years.

Jan, who brings his bubbly personality to Tranquility and Desiree who has played an essential role in running Tranquility over the years will welcome you back to experience many more wonderful holidays at Tranquility!  And to the new travelers, welcome to this special place on the mountainside.

Sadly, we have lost the love of our lives, Big Rosie, our beloved border collie!  She was the life and soul of Tranquility and is so sorely missed!

Baby Rosie is still here as are our francolins and beautiful birds.  We have also acquired a family of guinea fowls who make their presence really heard!

We so look forward to special times with you!

“From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another.”

John 1:16
