"Pearl" derives from the German word "Perlhuhn," ( pronounced pell:hoon ) which is a guinea fowl. Direct translation - English : pearl chicken ; Afrikaans : pêrelhoender.

Pearl Guest House lies 20 km east of Pretoria, in Donkerhoek close to Rayton and Cullinan. We are near the N4 highway and several popular wedding venues and function/conference centres.

The guest house is situated on a portion of the original farm Kleinfontein which was owned by David Botha, the Pioneer who built the Pioneer Museum homestead in 1846 in Silverton Pretoria. The vegetation is typical highveld open savanna dominated by Sweet Thorn trees ( Acacia Karroo ).

Our guest house consists of one cottage and one en-suite room:

Pearl Cottage has two bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and one with two single beds, sharing a full bathroom.  It also has a lounge with DSTV, a kitchen which is fully equipped for self-catering, a braai area, and tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Our Studio Room has a king-sized bed (or two single beds), a full en-suite bathroom, a small sitting area, DSTV, a small fridge and tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Both Pearl Cottage and Studio Room have separate entrances and their own patios overlooking the swimming pool and garden with a peaceful bushveld view towards the Bronberg.

Here you can relax before/after a wedding, conference or other event, or just come for a relaxing break in the countryside.

We offer an "on the go" breakfast as an optional extra. You can enjoy this breakfast on the patio or take it with you when you leave.

Pearl Gastehuis,
Ruim, skoon en bekostigbaar. Fantastiese atmosfeer en die klein dingetjies soos blomme en sjokoladetjies laat gaste "alte welkom" voel.
Doen so voort!

Never did we imagine that a chance encounter at a non descript petrol station would lead us to such an attractive and comfortable guest house.
We can't thank you enough for making us so welcome at such short notice.
The room is very comfortable and we had everything we needed.
We very much enjoyed our last breakfast in South Africa sitting in your lovely garden.
With very many thanks
