I spent a perfect afternoon in the lounge listening to the birds in the beautiful gardens and enjoying a relaxing time...

Been there at least 4-5 times during the last years and stayed there always for 4 days. As you enter the yard, you can see already the shady parking lots. Further down the path are the rooms, each with view to the pool and the courtyard with trees and lavender beds. The lounge across the courtyard with fridge (drinks), free...

A place to relax. Carla and Maarten are excellent hosts. The breakfast was fantastic. Beautiful garden with mountain view. Our car was very dirty after going through the Baviaanskloof. We were very happy when our car was cleaned without asking.
