Locals like to tell the story of Ronnie’s Shop, which Ronnie was fixing up to be a farm stand. During construction Ronnie’s friends played a prank on him by painting the word "sex" on his sign. Instead of a farm stand, he left the sign as it was and opened this pub.

We were heading towards Franschhoek having driven from Kynsna. It was recommended that we took route 62 the more scenic route versus N2. We did just that and Ronnie's Sex Shop was on the list of places to see which I read about! Let's just...More

What a cool place for a quick drink! Seems to be in the middle of nowhere, yet busy! Great atmosphere and great service. Enjoyed it and added a NZ $5 to their wall.

We sometimes drive along Route 62. Not the best road in SA but OK. The biking community seem to really like it. However, R 62 takes one through beautiful towns of a bygone era. Then after Barrydale during the journey north east on the right...More

What a name for a place. It has absolutely nothing to do with the name. It's a simple bar, on the motorway. Very clever to name it Ronnie's Sex shop😉

Ok, the concept and the name are great. We were there in the morning so not up for libations of any kind. In those circumstances it was nothing special. Mainly just a.tourist trap to sell t-shirts . I can imagine arriving at 4 or 5...More

We knew we would be travelling between Oudtschoorn and Swellendam along Route 62 and every time we looked at a map one name would stand out - our eyes were drawn directly to it. Ronnie's Sex Shop! Fascinated, we looked it up on the internet...More

It's an eye catching gimmick which makes Ronnie's a must stop location on the R62. Well worth a visit.

Hi Hannah O, unfortunately they do not offer accommodation. Your best bet is to stay in a nice B&B in Barrydale. Barrydale is a nice artistic town with good accommodation and restaurants.
