Disappointment was soon over come by meeting the relatively new owners Wilma and Des. This lovely Cape Dutch style house has magnificent rooms, aircon, crisp white cotton sheets and we had a delightful veranda to...

An excellent stop on our way from Cape Town to Knysna. Desmond and Wilma have been running this B&B for a few months now and are doing a great job. Would highly recommend this place, especially if you are a foodie.

It is set back from the road and is very quiet with...

Amazing experience from the moment we arrived. A very warm welcome from our hosts Desmond and Wilma. Delicious breakfast, the room was beautifully decorated, comfortable, and well appointed with everything one could possibly need! Especially a proper hairdryer! Well done! Thanks, Desmond and Wilma for a lovely stay.

The hosts came out and met us at the car. The room was well equipped, they thought of everything. Beautiful surroundings. Wilma and Desmond are fairly new to the B&B thing, but they are naturals. We enjoyed talking to them so much over a glass of wine that we invited them to o our house if they where ever in...

Desmond and Wilma overtook the guesthouse couple of month ago and they hosted us perfect and very friendly warm and kind. They made us feel like at home in this wonderful house and the wonderful room. We stayed one night and they gave us a perfect recommendation für dinner and organized also the table just 2 min. walkway away. Awesome!...
