Pure Bliss! Peace! Kind hospitality. Friendly and helpful. Perfect presentation of food, bedding, stocked kitchenette. Tranquil ponder-garden and crystal lap pool. Astonishing! A "go-at least- once - a - year"!

OVL is simply a perfect place: our room with the lobby, the garden, the host, and - as mentioned before by others - the breakfast. That indeed was absolutely great, thanks to Nicolaas, who also prepared us a beautiful dinner one evening. When we will get once again to the region, we will come back!

Luckily we were able to book the garden room at this wonderful establishment run by our hardworking host Nicolaas. He has handcrafted a beautiful 3 bedroom guesthouse of the highest quality and the surrounding gardens & pool area are exceptional. His breakfast creations take some beating as well. Make sure you spend some time here if you are visiting the... More

We love the guest house because it is small,... More

I arrived VERY late and also it was already dark, Nicolaas attended me with a small and I got a wonderful large room with a balcony opening into his beautiful garden.

Nicolaas is the perfect host ! Nothing seemed too much trouble. We were late in arriving,right in the middle of his lunch... no problem. The well appointed room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our room lead out to an exquisite swimming poor surrounded by a garden full of colour and heavenly scents from roses as big as cabbages !... More

If you are looking for beauty & respite with a gracious host your search has ended. Rooms are beautiful, the pool is sublime, the breakfast is delicious and the gardens brought deep peace. Nicolaas took great care in preparing our breakfast around our allergies - gluten and dairy free. Ahh, just wish we had stayed longer!
