Gourits Self Catering Units
In 1998, Org Nieuwoudt started converting the Old Gourits Hotel into self catering units with his bare hands one unit at a time.
Today we know it as Gourits Self Catering Units, under the Gourits Nieuwoudt Trust. Org`s wife, Sanet Nieuwoudt runs the Gourits Self Catering Units,
as well as the Kontrei Winkel (Onsite Shop). We have 16 units in total, but are numbered from 1 - 17,
keeping the "Old Hotel" tradition number 13 as bad luck. Each unit has its own braai, bathroom, fully equipted kitchen, microwave, fridge, TV
and more. Units at the front of the building all have sea views, while the units at the back of the building all have views of the town, the old church and
the famous open field which we know as the "Old Caravan Park". The "Old Caravan Park" is now a public park and is a rocks throw from the building
for fun activities like playing cricket. The building also has a small court yard with washing lines and sinks for laundry.
The Gourits Self Catering Units are situated about 150 meters from the main beach (Blue Flag Status).
The Gourits Self Catering Units is situated in the right spot of the town, as the local shops, bars, river, beach, rocky shore and the tidal pool is
all walking distance away. Gouritsmond itself is a very safe town where children have the opertunity to roam free!
