Our Story

Founded by Cees Hopstaken, Threebees Guesthouse reflects his vision of sharing South Africa's allure with the world. Cees, originally from Belgium, discovered his love for this vibrant country and set out on a mission to showcase its beauty. His dedication to providing travelers with an immersive and memorable stay led to the creation of Threebees, where comfort and adventure intertwine seamlessly.

Your Host

Cees Hopstaken made a life-changing move to South Africa from Belgium in 2006, driven by his aspiration to embrace the African experience. Fascinated by the allure of Pretoria – its favorable climate and natural beauty – Cees envisioned a way to introduce the richness of South Africa to global travelers. With two decades of successful business expertise in steel construction in Belgium and the Netherlands, beginning at the age of 17 alongside his father, fate steered a new course for Cees following a tragic car accident that led him to manage the business independently at 19.

Drawn by the allure of a fresh challenge, Cees sought a new beginning, initially considering establishing a business akin to his prior endeavors. However, upon arriving in South Africa, the country's remarkable beauty ignited a new purpose within him. Determined to share this magnificence with the world, he founded Guesthouse Threebees. Today, Cees has made South Africa his cherished home and transformed this remarkable guesthouse into a refined haven for travelers seeking comfort and genuine exploration.

With an extensive understanding of the country's nuances, cultures, and captivating attractions, Cees stands as an invaluable resource for all travelers. His profound insights guide guests to discover the most breathtaking destinations, arrange bespoke day excursions, or even lead them on safari adventures. Upon your return to Guesthouse Threebees, Cees eagerly awaits, ready to treat you to the delightful flavors of Africa with his masterful preparations at the traditional "Braai."
