About GHASA est. 1992
GHASA was established in 1992 when a group of establishment owners got together to promote the guest house industry.
In 2000, GHASA became a private company, known as Guest House Association of SA (Pty) Limited, also incorporating the Self-Catering Registry of SA which has its own website (www.selfcateringsouthafrica.com).
Over the past 19 years, GHASA has become well known as experts in quality guest house accommodation, offering many benefits, assistance and valued advice to members, as well as booking opportunities for travellers.
More recently, in order to improve bookings for our members, we've changed our name to Guest House Accommodation of South Africa (acronym still GHASA).
To that end we have geared our website for "realtime online availability", making the process of booking at a participating guest house so much easier for the traveller or Agent.
Look out for the Online Availability button.
PLEASE NOTE: GHASA cannot guarantee that rates quoted on this site are correct & up to date. We do remind our members to advise us of rate changes, but cannot be held repsonsible in the event that they fail to do so.
