This is an excellent stopover on the garden route 62. Very charming host and hostess, every comfort and a delicious dinner, and breakfast. A real treat to sit on the veranda and enjoy the views out over the surrounding countryside. The pool and gardens are a delight. Highly recommended.

Beautifully equipped in a serene location overlooking Calitzdorp and the hills behind which the sun sets. The hosts Andrew and Nel are charming and friendly and looked after us. Nel is a very good cook and our dinner was worth a Michelin star. The room was comfortable, spacious and well equipped. We felt that we should have stayed for more... More

Unfortunately, we arrived late and had to leave early to pick up a flight from Cape Town. Although we'd planned to eat before arriving this wasn't possible but Nell promptly rustled up meals for us, which included one of the best steaks ever. The room (No. 2) was both spacious and comfortable, with a large and well-equipped bathroom. Breakfast was... More

one of our best accomodation during traveling across SA. You have to take the dinner from the Country House and enjoy a glas of wine on the patio. The scenery to the mountains and the calm is fascinating. We will come back a.s.a.p.

This was one of the highlights of our Route 62 journey. The House is out of town with great views of the countryside. The room was very comfortable and our evening meal (booked before arrival) was excellent.. Five star quality.
