Barnicles was sold for a tidy profit and the owners boarded a sailboat and, quite literaly, sailed off into the sunset.
Since then the backpackers changed hands a few times but unfortunately could not ride out the ression wave that hit Mossel Bay.
Finally, in 2013, the building was rescued by business owners from Oudtshoorn and lovingly revamped into modern, state of the art, offices. Not wanting to waste such a beautiful setting on just office space, they decided to turn the third floor into a luxury penthouse.
And so Mitat was born.
Mitat means ‘Gift from God’ and it literally was.
After its ups and downs the building fell into the right, loving, hands and finally the building has come to its full potential again.
Mitat has its own convenient and private entrance with a double lock-up garage and state of the art security system. The penthouse can make use of the state-of-the-art boardroom and conference facilities situated only a private staircase away and has full wi-fi access, making Mitat the ideal get away for business people wanting to combine business with a bit of leisure.
With its three luxury rooms and two bathrooms it is also the ideal place for families to take a much needed break and is conveniently close to all ammenities like shops, restaurants, hospitals and activities.
