Our hosts, Yves and Valerie, owners of Carmichael were helpful, warm and friendly. Their Victorian house is in a tranquil setting, with easy access to everywhere via Rhodes Drive/De Waal Drive, which is conveniently nearby but can't be heard from the guesthouse, which is quiet. We had secure parking in the grounds. Can't wait to go back! Thank you for...

If you are looking for a quiet and cosy place then Charmichael Guesthouse is IT.
