Janet gave us a very warm welcome. Our room was adequate with French windows to the garden and pool area and had a spacious and modern bathroom. Lovely swimming pool with very comfy sunbeds. Delicious breakfast with tables beautifully set with lovely cloths and napkins arranged around the pool. Great location with secure parking. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely, comfortable place to stay in a quiet residential area. Plenty of space for guests with their own sitting room, sun beds and pool bar. Menus for local restaurants are available, and some offer shuttle service free of charge, but if not then taxis are plentiful and cheap. Excellent breakfasts.

We stayed for a single evening in mid December. The grounds are gorgeous and the rooms are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. There is a beautiful pool area, that we spent most of our time around. The hosts are also an absolute pleasure and make for a very positive experience all round. We will definitely be returning.

if you like to stay in Oudtshoorn this is the best place to be. The guesthouse is ideally located in a quiet neighbourhood, on a walking distance from the village centre (shops and restaurants). For daytrips to the caves, the Swartbergpass or oistrich farms it is an excellent place. A day at the pool in the lovely garden is defenitely...
