“An easy stay. Ammie’s communication is excellent. This is hands off the best self check-in I’ve experienced. There were clear, hassle-free instructions to enter the apartment. The apartment is spacious. The two rooms have wonderfully comfortable beds and pillows. The apartment includes all the basics you need for a comfortable stay. Very effective aircon installed in both the main bedroom and the living room. We had a wonderful stay.”

– Veynell Airbnb Guest February 2019

“Staying with Ammie in Lichtenburg was perfect for us. Ammie communicated superbly with us right from making the booking and onwards. Check in was swift and the room was immaculately clean with a lot of thoughtful touches. We had everything that we needed and more. We had a great night’s rest as the residential area is really quiet. We felt very safe and had secure parking for our vehicle. The host is so kind, friendly and helpful. He went out of her way to make sure we had a comfortable stay. This place is also a fabulous value for money. We can highly recommend Ammie’s Farm Stay to other Airbnb guests. Satisfaction is guaranteed here! We will be back.”

About Us

“Attention to detail is the differentiating factor when setting out to create something special in overnight accommodation.”  Ammie Rootman, Founder.

Modern Farm Guesthouse’s definite aim is to challenge traditional accommodation offerings to create an exceptional hospitality experience for guests. Our distinct unit layout, a clever composition of cozy farmhouse aesthetic, contemporary design and country-living hospitality, has had many a guest gasping “Oh wow”.

The vision for Modern Farm Guesthouse was born from one of our Co-Founders’ regular and often lengthy travel.  Whilst working in the corporate milieu, he stayed in hundreds of different hotels, guesthouses and the like and found most traditional accommodation offerings to provide standard apartment spaces with basic amenities at best.  In his mind’s eye, he envisioned the perfect accommodation prototype and teamed up with his family to create it.

Modern Farm Guesthouse opened its doors in January 2019 with one unit and, within one year of operation, expanded to four. The guesthouse received a 100% rating across all measuring categories from its first 20 guest reviewers on Airbnb and earned 4 Superhost badges along the way – an early testimony that we strive to be perfect in every aspect of an accommodation offering. Modern Farm Guesthouse is set towards creating the ultimate space for anyone – from the weary overnighter, tourist or holidaymaker, contractor, business traveler and CEO.

Modern Farm was cofounded in 2018 by brother and sister, Ammie and Loureze Rootman. The name Modern Farm was chosen by their mother, Retha Rootman.
