Beautiful room in a fabulous quiet garden of a historical homestead. Philda is an amazing hostess with fantastic attention to detail. An awesome breakfast to top it off. I will definitely return on my next trip to George

About
Description
Experience hospitality in a unique and authentic (circa 1861) Cape Georgian historical home. Fairview Homestead is a 5 bedroom guest house in B&B style - that means the owners,Desmond and Philda, live on the ...More premises. The guest rooms are private, but we have a communal lounge/breakfast area for the guests. Philda is responsible for the running of the Guest House and Desmond is the gardener and plant collector (when not in the garden, still working as a medical doctor) We have a large kitchen garden, a small orchard and keep our own chickens. Do consider staying a few days: George is the hub of golf in the Garden Route with many of South Africa's top courses within a 60km radius. We can organize a guided tour of the garden Route wine route, paragliding, bungee jumping, game drives to Bottelierskop Game Reserve and trips to the Seal Island and/or Shark cage diving in Mossel Bay...
