I LOVE CULLINAN

CULLINAN IS A SMALL TOWN 30 KM EAST OF PRETORIA, GAUTENG, SOUTH AFRICA. IT IS A SMALL TOWN ALONG THE DIAMOND ROUTE THAT IS HEAVILY RELIANT ON TOURISM AND THE MINE THAT DOMINATES THE SKYLINE. THE TOWN IS NAMED AFTER DIAMOND MAGNATE SIR THOMAS CULLINAN. THE ATTRACTIVE LITTLE VILLAGE OF CULLINAN WAS A PIONEERING MINING SETTLEMENT THAT MADE ITS NAME WITH THE DISCOVERY IN 1905 OF THE WORLD’S BIGGEST DIAMOND, THE 3 106-CARAT CULLINAN DIAMOND.

THE VILLAGE IS PART OF THE DINOKENG INITIATIVE IN GAUTENG “AFRICA IN A DAY” AND SERVES AS THE GATEWAY TO THE DINOKENG AREA WHICH LIES TO THE NORTH OF IT.

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."
