Homely friendly service from Johan & Jo Anne in a guest house of exceptional standard in a beautiful location convenient to all amenities and close to the stunning wine producing regions of the Western Cape.

Dear GreyBear The word "gravitas" comes to mind when I read your review! Wow! Thank you so much for staying with us again and for this comprehensive review. I know the two of you are extremely busy, but breakaways to the Winelands should be taken more often! Johan and Jo-Anne

Excellent accommodation in a very well appointed suite. Warm hospitality including checkin and a hearty breakfast in a beautiful setting. It's a pity that I could not stay longer. Close to win farms and restaurants.

Although "service" at places is of utmost importance the aura of "pleasantly at ease", is much more satisfying. The squirrels amongst fallen autumn leaves, the African sun on the patio, the smell of hot freshly ground coffee ... I could enjoy that recently with my wife at Blaauwheim ...
