Dorie and Johan are super friendly hosts, very helpful and great care takers. The view is amazing and you get a variety of sightseeing spots close by. Lounge evenings are legendary, playing cards with a nice glass of wine. Quite and very relaxing!

A fantastic escape with views forever. Easy check in, very accommodating with our weird requests, and friendly service. A little bit off the beaten track, and Google Maps had no idea on how to get there, but well worth it. A word of warning - the wind can blow, but if you're lucky enough to get a rare windless day,...

We spent 10 days at Colourful Manor, just outside of Gordon's Bay during February and it is a truly special place to visit. The most amazing personal service from Johan and Dori, at all times - day or night. (Dori makes the best scrambled eggs for breakfast ever) Magnificent views, peace and tranquility, yet close enough to beautiful Stellenbosch and...

I give 6 stars out of 5 to my hosts. They are welcoming, flexible and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The owner could remove the word luxurious our of the name.

It was a very short stay (one night) but we had everything we needed. Hospitality was excellent. Bed was very comfortable and was glad for the pool to cool off on the extremely hot Friday afternoon. Breakfast was perfect for both us - fresh fruit, cold meats, cereals. Lovely stay all round.

This is a beautiful guesthouse with stunning views. The rooms were well presented and the hosts were very friendly and attentive. Two small criticisms were the lack of fridge in the room and the pillows were very hard. It is very clear that the owners have take on board previous feedback from guests and made improvements. Overall I would recommend...
