As it is prohibitively expensive to find a live-in venue for the event, our organizer, Megan Knight has negotiated a great deal with Chartfield Guest House (, which has wonderful accommodation.  They can accommodate up to 36 people (sharing) in their main accommodation and have a few other options in terms of houses and self-catering options that they also manage.  They offer a range of reasonable rates, are incredibly well run, have a swimming pool and very importantly, have more than enough off-grid water should water shortage still be a challenge come October.  Non-resident attendees can join in by bringing lunch with them and have access to the facilities, such as the pool. 

Other Options: 

Kalk Bay Guest House (

Airbnb: There are also heaps of options available for every price range - this is a tourist village, so is set up to accommodate out-of-towners.  

Please Note: A few important points 

1. You need to book directly with the Chartfield Guest House to receive the free breakfast. For people who require accommodation, we suggest you book soon - October is empty of tourists for now due to people’s concerns about water but will fill up quickly; it’s a fantastic time of year weather-wise too.

2. We would like to have as many out of town people book with Chartfield if possible, so we can try to make the seminar a shared experience.

3. All who book accommodation with any options in Kalk Bay must mention that you are part of the seminar Megan Knight is organizing as she is well in the area.

4. If you are staying in Kalk Bay, a taxi from the airport will get you there, and you will not need a car as everything is within walking distance.  There’s a train for trips further afield, and Uber works perfectly and is incredibly cheap.
