This was the last step of our journey and it was so beautiful, a lovely and extraordinary guest house. Also the owner and the staff were excellent. This location is highly recommended and a unique end of our trip.

Beautiful gardens and we were well catered for and spoilt. The rooms are neat and the largest shower I have seen for a long time. The management team deserve to be in the hospitality business. Will definitely recommend to friends and family. All the staff are friendly and smile when they greet you.

This was our first stop on a 3 week trip around the Cape. It was lovely to arrive to such beautiful gardens and thoughtful, warm hospitality. Our room was perfect - very very spacious! Breakfast on the terrace was a perfect way to start a day. Loved listening to the varied sounds of the birds. Highly recommended!

The grounds, primarily orchards, have lovely trees, flowering shrubs and lawn...
