Kalm Guest House

Top choice guest house in Clarens

With an ornate style she calls 'maximalism', interior designer extraordinaire Karen Hickman has gone to town on two guest suites, 'Yours' and 'Whose', festooning them in every colour, material, animal print and knick-knack around. The result is genius, and in 2017 Karen also added wood-burning fireplaces and braais to the cosy units, which are surrounded by Alice in Wonderland–style gardens.

Karen lives next door with her husband in a home that's received an equal overdose of her artistry – she might let you see it if you ask nicely. And you really should see this.
