Hannes Horn is a friendly host who went out of his way to attend to our needs. Muscadel Room No.1.Bath/shower design is impractical. Needs a grab handle for showering. Taps are out of reach from outside the bath. An electric blanket would be nice in Winter. We would return

Just make 100% sure that your security is excellent-for the sake of clients. Your setting is beautiful and everything is extremely tasteful, flowers to make you feel welcome. Lovely food, friendly staff. Please never lower your standards.

As this was my 5th visit to African Vineyard, I did not expect to still be pleasantly surprised. Every time I visit I can see all kinds of improvements in and around the guesthouse and it is obvious that this is an ongoing process and that no expense is too much to ensure that their guests have a GREAT time...

This must be one of the best guesthouses in SA, and we travel a lot. From the beautiful setting, to the spacious and well appointed rooms, everything was perfect. Do not miss a meal there - it's memorable.

Design of the rooms are just awesome, however, sometimes design results in a lack of functionality (e.g. open showers, that also water part of the room). A small basin next to the toilet would make... More

We stayed at African vineyard guesthouse on a trip to explore the Northern cape. We also celebrated our wedding anniversary there. The rooms are enormous and very comfortable. This spaciousness makes it feel likes one's own home; with leather couches and comfortable bedding. The decor is unique and authentic and the setting is exceptional! On an island in the Orange...
