Seeking affordable function venues or party venues in Durbanville?
Functions & Parties
Rondekuil Estates is situated near Cape Town and offers one of the best and most affordable function venues in Durbanville. With beautiful views of the countryside, our venue is ideal for corporate and private parties, anniversaries and weddings.
If you are struggling to find affordable party venues in Durbanville and surrounds, Rondekuil might be it! Our venue comfortably accommodates up to 150 guests and this still leaves sufficient space for dancing. We will take care of the positioning and layout of the tables, taking your party and requirements into account. We supply round tables, that can seat 6 to 10 guests each.
If you are having a smaller function, we can also accommodate you! We offer a set of attractive screens that can be used to cordon off a specific area of the venue which is not required for the function. Not only is this a practical solution, it also tends to leave the space looking cosier and feeling more intimate.
How it works
As a premium function venue, we at Rondekuil Estates aim to assist our clients with the planning of their events to make sure that everything proceeds as smoothly as possible. Please read further for more information on what is included in the venue hire fee, and what is not included.
For large functions and parties, food is usually served buffet-style. We present the food on two large granite tables, on the side of the venue near the kitchen, for guests to dish for themselves.
Should a client require food that is not included in the standard menu, it can be arranged in consultation with Rondekuil Estates’ management.
During any function or party, there is a cash bar in one corner of the venue, where two friendly and helpful barmen serve guests. If guests want to run a tab for the duration of the event, a cash deposit is required beforehand to cover the cost of drinks throughout the party or, alternatively, payment can be made using a credit or debit card, by arrangement with the Venue Manager.
Accommodation at Rondekuil Estates
We have comfortable accommodation options available at Rondekuil Estates, for up to 24 guests. Guests can choose between B&B and self-catering options which are available at reasonable prices. Should you or your guests require accommodation during a weekend, then we require that guests book accommodation for a minimum of 2 nights. However, there are 3 units available in our Country Lodge, that can sleep up to six guests, where delegates/guests, attending functions, can stay for one night over weekends.
Other accommodation options are available at various guesthouses in the Durbanville area, which is only a 10-12 minutes’ drive from Rondekuil.
Rondekuil Estates’ highly experienced Venue Manageress will assist you with planning the function and will advise you regarding who to contact for any outside services you may require. Our aim is to make sure that your function is planned thoroughly, in order to make the lead-up to the function as stress-free as possible and to ensure that all those attending the function can enjoy the celebrations to the full.
