Very spacious and comfortable accommodation. Conveniently located in one of the most beautiful towns and wine regions in the world. We had a wonderful time, enjoying the hospitality at the restuarants and vineyards as well as visiting the motor museum No service in the units over the weekend.

Located in the heart of franschoek, very close to main road. We got the budget studio and it was more than enough for us. The owner met us on arrival and gave us the brief of everything that we needed to know. The studio is bigger than your average hotel room plus it has a small fridge and some utilities...

Thanks so much for the great review of our budget studio. I am glad that the studio was more than enough for you and that you enjoyed sitting outside on the patio! Thank you so much for alerting me about the open window in your bathroom that attracted moths from the outside garden; it is easy for me to make...

Room is nice and cosy. Small kitchen makes it able to prepare own meals. The cats of the owner come to viset a lot, but leave when you tell them. Room is close enough to the city centre so you can walk there.

Great option in Franschhoek. Fairly priced, with everything you need and we could walk everywhere. We loved the kitties, some might not and the pool was big and cool. Very nice, very private. Would definitely stay there again.

The place is very secured and is located in a peaceful environment. Close to the city center without the noise. Barbara is a very nice person and we will definitely recommend the place to our friends. We did not try the pool as it was already cold but we toured around and we spent a lovely time

We booked the studio unit and were pleasantly surprised by how spacious it was. We were personally greeted by Barbara on our arrival and a personalized information letter waited for us as well. There was also a collection of useful pamphlets and a folder of activities in and around Franschhoek. Loved the effort that was made for this. The kitchenette...

The host is a very kind lady. The accommodation clean and modest, as is the rental price. Extra: swimming pool for the hot days like we had. We could walk to the restaurants in the evening. Own entrance.

The guesthouse is good value for money. It is an easy walk into Franschhoek village, and close drive to many wine farms. The room was neat and tidy. Pool available. Owner very friendly and made us feel comfortable.
