The Destination McGregor will happily get your McGregor home ready for you by, among other things:
- cleaning and dusting, and putting fresh linen on the beds

- arranging for the pool and garden to be spruced up ahead of your arrival
Just get in touch and we get your home from home ready so that all you need to do is arrive from Cape Town International airport - and even that we can facilitate for you.
For establishments, their owners and managers
- A collegial and reciprocal referral system for establishments in the village if they have overflow and/or if they are unable to meet guests' requirements
- Bespoke accommodation management services
These services arrange from basic accommodation management - guest liaison, set-up, turnaround to a more comprehensive service that includes marketing and maintenance of the accommodation.
Services are available on either a retainer or an ad hoc basis and rates are dependent on the level of service.
We are committed to using local providers for all our services, beginning right here in McGregor. Where possible we support emergent and micro businesses. This includes
- supporting an emerging female entrepreneur to build a business, Clean It!!! which provides cleaning and laundry services to our establishments
- concierge services and food providers are all local, using ingredients that are, as far as possible, sourced in the village or from the Robertson valley
- starting in McGregor to source artisans and workers to service our properties, to our standards, before looking in Robertson and further afield
