It was our second time in De Molen Guest House. And we loved it once again! It is a quiet place nicely located on the hill, near all the interesting things we wanted to visit: such as the wine-resorts, golfclubs, beaches, etc.

The 4 days/nights were a good time of relaxing after our journey from J'burg to Cape Town. The house offers nice places for drinks, the breakfasts and for meeting other people living at De Molen's. Excellent position of the pool! The cottage had all the important facilities you need for a quiet and recreative holiday.
