The Purple House in Smithfield, owned by Johann Greeff and uncle of Karen Zoid, is one of the oldest and nowadays most funkiest, grooviest guest houses in the Free State. This Guest House is run by myself and I am always available.  Here I do not pretend to be 5 star, but I do know the importance of offering nice, clean rooms and beds with great service, aircon, wi-fi and friendliness.

We have a generator when load shedding happens!  You will have lights and water to shower!  
I am fairly laid back and will be most happy to welcome you into my home.  
We will part as friends for sure! Come stay where guests like Radio Kalahari Orkes group, Karen Zoid family, Manuel Escorcio, Petronel Baard and many other Groovy singing stars have stayed!

Very good reviews all over the place!


Here’s what Chris wrote

“Very, very highly recommend this place if you’re looking in Smithfield. Johann is a very kind, funny and attentive host who does everything he can to make you welcome. The rooms are outstanding, and the house is every bit as delightfully quirky as it sounds. Showers and kitchen are spot on, and breakfast was outstanding. Really feel like we fell on our feet when we found Johann’s place for an overnight. Highly recommended. Thanks Johann!”

Apparently this was a sea going dinosaur that beached itself onthe beach at Smithfield in ancient times. As you well may know that the Karoo was totally under water for milleniums. That is why there are so many sea creatures found in the Karoo
like Trillobites and fossilised fish. The Americans tell me that they knew of this thing, but has never actually seen a specimen until now!...
I found this

Let Johann serenade you

on the beach in Smithield.  LOL

Manuel Escorcio slept over for 2 nights
