The history of the guest house, and especially Strand, goes back a long way. Around the year 1695 a Corporal Muller, of the Dutch East India Company, set foot on the white sands of Milk Bay. In 1714 David du Buisson, Huguenot, was granted the farm Vlooibaai. In the late 19th and early 20th century the village, with it’s dry sunny climate in summer and mild winter days, became a popular seaside resort. Thomas Wade, who fought with the British in the Boer War, decided to stay after the war and settled in Somerset Strand which changed it’s name to Strand in 1937. In 1904 he had the first wooden pavilion built on the beach and in 1914 laid the foundations for two cottages, which today is Welterusten guesthouse.
With it's gleaming wooden floors, high ceilings and a tiled fireplace in the lounge, it creates an ideal homely, tranquil atmosphere. From the veranda one looks out over the lovely garden with an abundance of birds, flowers and greenery. Since it's opening on June 1, 1997, the guest house has acquired an excellent reputation.
