Dei gratia house


About Us



Dei Gratia is a vision that Charmaine and Gavin started, evolving from an idea to make their property a home away from home for others.

Dei Gratia means “by the Grace of God” and was named after Charmaine’s childhood home to promote to a future generation for the benefit of their children, Alyssa, Keegan and Helene.

It is therefore a place for others to experience the blessings of peace and comfort when travelling and on holiday.





Enjoy great rates with complimentary beverages, cereals, parking, and WiFi.

All five rooms have air-conditioning, en-suites, smart TVs,  Bar fridges, Coffee & Tea facilities, Finest down pillow and duvets as well as pure cotton bed linen.
