Where memories are made.

Well-known artist JanHarm Vorster welcomes you to his latest creative venture: the exceptional Gastehys JanHarmsgat, a very affordable upmarket Bed & Breakfast guest house that is "Grênt with a difference".

Situated close to beautiful wetlands and next to ZAU Spa in the charming village of Cullinan, Gauteng, this guest house was redecorated in July 2010 in true JanHarmsgat style and in conjunction with renowned local interior and antique shop Rust in White. It has already been very positively featured in Elle Decoration, SA Garden, Beeld and Pasella, amongst others.

Not only will your charming hostess, Annah Msiza, make your stay as comfortable as possible, but guests have the option of four unique rooms, so you can choose the one that best fits your lifestyle. Each has a private terrace where you can enjoy a magical sunset with a complimentary sherry, or be greeted by sunrise with our complimentary tea, coffee and rusks.

Every room is provided with mineral water and a minibar, and breakfast (pre-booking essential) can be served in your suite at 09h00. For dinner, we recommend some of the numerous eating establishments in the village, including As Greek as it Gets (book with Stavros at 012 734 0707), The Cockpit Brewhouse (book with Andre at 012 734 0656 or 082 902 9669) or Piacere Pizza (book with Jan at 082 829 6797).

Guests, both new and loyal regulars, are welcome to experience the grand new White House! Booking is essential, so please call Sonja on 074 3 225 225 or email info@gastehys.co.za.

Just some of the feedback we have received:
"Every visit to Cullinan brings so many surprising discoveries, beautiful friendships and magic memories that guests just cannot stay away for very long. It is hard not to share in JanHarm Vorster's passion for this picturesque village when he shows you why this historic town was one of the three Gauteng finalists of ‘Kwêla/Rapport Town of the year 2013’ competition." - Beren Bauermeister, Decor Editor SA Garden.

“We had a wonderful stay at your guest house on Saturday evening. We LOVED every detail of the room - especially the bathroom! You must be thrilled with the end result - you have totally transformed the guesthouse into a brilliantly creative and wonderfully welcoming space. Of course it is completely wacky - but fabulously so!!! Love the bedside lights! We really wish you loads of success with all your ventures and wonderful ideas. You have amazing vision - you see potential in things that most people would never see and you have the talent and energy to transform things into something that really uplifts the soul - always with a sense of humour. Thank you for sharing that talent with all of us!! I think Cullinan runs on your energy and vision!” – Louise

"It’s a bit like falling down the Rabbit Hole; such is JanHarm Vorster’s ability to create fantasy with plants, space and food. Jan’s extraordinary garden and fairytale décor inspirations suffuse every detail of the four guestrooms, from the zany door in the roof of Leka Room’s bathroom, to the suspended
chairs that double as bedside lamps in Fansy Suite, it’s all bewildering, but in the best way possible. Lush art punctuates the walls and I am thrilled to have a Walter Battiss silkscreen in my room. Bags deposited in my appointed ‘Leka’ room, it’s Beer O’Clock time."
