The Beautiful South was our first B & B in South Africa and we were not disappointed. Peter was there to greet us and we found him to be very accommodating and extremely helpful with ideas for visits. We had a gorgeous room with all facilities and a substantial breakfast. We found a lovely restaurant, L'Olive, which turned out to...

It feels like you have returned home as Peter and Katarina greet you. They were the saving grace of our trip as we cancelled another B+B to return to The Bueatiful South for another night. From the thatched roof in the rooms to the pool area to the amazing breakfast, it was a perfect stay. I would rearrange any trip...

Regretfully, we only stayed one night in Stellenbosch, which is a fantastic college town. The Beautiful South is conveniently located in a quiet, residential part of town, and only a short walk to campus, restaurants, etc. The house is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, with a wonderful garden and pool. We stayed in the Austin Powers room, which I suspect is...
