About Old Mac Daddy

The Airstream Trailer Park idea was originally inspired by a natural rural setting, so when The Daddy Long Legs Group discovered a little piece of heaven on a private farm in the apple-growing Elgin Valley, they went to work immediately. The Old Mac Daddy Park is the nostalgic camping holiday of childhood with added luxurious touches, designer trailer suites, slopes of whispering pines, lakes, endless nature-inspired activity, wholesome farm-grown food and all of this just a 40 minute drive from the Cape Town CBD.

The park consists of ten trailer suites with a separate lounge, viewing deck and en-suite bathroom. Each unit will accommodate two adults in the trailer and the lounge doubles up as a kiddies room. Another two Airstream trailers overlook the bottom dam and will accommodate two adults. Whilst these trailers are a little smaller, they are still en-suite and make the perfect nest for romantic couples or those wanting to contemplate life from a serene perspective. Daddy’s Villa, is a three bedroom forest cabin for larger families and wedding parties.

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, and unsupervised little people out.

A brilliant venue for conferences, meetings, pow-wows, celebrations and weddings, The Old Mac Daddy can be rented entirely for functions or partially for meetings. A boardroom and conference area is located on the property. Wireless broadband is available for those needing to get some work done.

Bookings effective 15 July 2010.

                              The accommodation was really nice and the staff was hospitable. We enjoyed it so much and would definitely stay there again.

                              The area where the venue is situated was nice, with beautiful surroundings and a lovely restaurant. The food was enjoyable and taking a run up the mountain was fantastic. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.

                              The setting of the units was beautiful and something different. Loved the service and the activities that was available and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. We had a one night stay and will most definitely be staying there for more days.

                              We had a really fantastic stay, I was happy with everything at the Resort, there was nothing I didn’t like. What an absolutely outstanding place.

                              We had an absolutely great stay at Old Mac Daddy`s. We stayed in the trailer called Life Before Colour, the trailer was really beautifully done and it was wonderfully comfortable. The one thing that stood out for me about our stay was the staff, they were really great, super helpful and friendly. Also the resort is located in a beautiful setting and surroundings. We had an amazing time. Thanks!
