Annette and Barry were fantastic hosts and made us feel like we were a part of their family. Our plans for the arrival date changed and we arrived a day earlier than expected. They welcomed us with open arms. Staying with Annette and Barry was one of the best travel experiences we've ever had. We cannot recommend a stay at...

What can we say that hasn't already been said? Beautiful house, lovely accommodation, great location, fabulous breakfast, we could go on but what really makes the Garden House special is the wonderful hospitality you receive from Annette and Barry (and of course Benjy, Lizzie and Marmaduke) - we stayed for three nights and left feeling as though we were saying...

We loved everything about the Garden House. The cottage is really spacious with a wonderful bathroom (heating floor system, so comfortable!) The breakfast was delicious and very generous and we understood it s only their winter breakfast!! We have to come back for the full summer one!! And most importantly Annette and Barry were extremely friendly and helpful! Despite the...

We have stayed the second time at the beautiful Garden House and are definitely going to return - again. Why? Because of the beautiful cottage we stay in, the wonderful garden with a great and very private pool area, the perfect location in Fanschhoek (walking to the restaurants for dinner), the view, the bikes we can borrow for free, complimentary...

Beautiful house, comfortable room, immaculately presented inside and out. Both are a source of useful advice for ideas re days out , meals or wineries etc. We even had a quiz at breakfast - great fun. Look no further if planning a trip to Franschhoek.

I don't normally write reviews but the Garden House is really something special. If you want great and relaxed hospitality then this is the place. I love chatting with the knowledgeable hosts over sun-downers surrounded by large ginger cats and a couple of dogs. The room is lovely, continental breakfast is sumptuous so no need for a cooked one and...

Annette and Barry are a joy to spend time with in their beautiful home and garden. Look no further if you would like to sit back, relax and be made a fuss of.
