Part wholesome caravan park, part designer farm lodge, Old Mac Daddy Trailer Hotel is a new chapter in adventure, escapism and pure relaxation. Set on the pine-whispering slopes of a beautiful corner of the Elgin Valley, Old Mac Daddy is a collection of vintage Airstream Trailer Suites, each designed by an artist, designer or creative living and working in Cape Town.
Fully catered and serviced; Old Mac Daddy offers trailer units with themed bedrooms and earth-friendly living spaces. A big designer barn (complete with kid's play park) is the communal area where all meals are served. Visit the Grolsch bar or take a dip in the swimming pool, explore the area or just relax.
Old Mac Daddy consists of ten trailer suites, two lake-side units and a family farm house - Daddy's Villa. Each of our trailer suites is a world of its own. The Airstreams themselves have been transformed into bespoke bedrooms; each with its own theme, style and feeling from the magical to the quirky and a whole range of delicate and wonderful things in between.
All but the lakeside suites, have additional living areas and decks, which allow for light-filled lounging (or use it as a kids bedroom) and time out. An en-suite bathroom with shower adds luxury to the experience making it a camping holiday like no other.
Heated in winter, cooled in summer and cleverly insulated throughout, you will be sleeping way past the first cock-a-doodle-doo!
COMMUNAL AREA, RESTAURANT AND GROLSCH BAR
Old Mac Daddy has a communal area where guests can enjoy healthy, wholesome meals, and treats throughout the day. All the ingredients used in the food are locally sourced, organic and free range wherever possible.
A child-friendly environment, kids will have an indoor-outdoor play area with daily activities and there is a full kids menu for children under eight years to choose meals from. These meals are free. A fenced-in swimming pool keeps temperatures down and adventurous, unsupervised little people out.
Grolsch, the premium Dutch beer behind the sleek, magnetic Airstream, is also the creative force behind the world-class bar at the heart of the park. The large 13-metre bar makes a bold statement with its size and striking finishes. One of only a few to offer Grolsch draught, the bar is fitted with a stainless steel tap imported from Europe.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Old Mac Daddy is for anyone who needs a break from the city. Anyone who wants to breathe fresh air, have apple juice run down their chin and swim in the farm dam and spend star-shot nights melting marshmallows over the fire. It's for anyone who loves to take brisk walks in winter and then curl up in front of a cosy fire. Old Mac Daddy is for everyone.
