What a lovely place! We stayed in the cottage and it was just super (especially the underfloor heating in the bathroom!). My 9 year old LOVED playing in the huge garden and picking fresh oranges from the trees and enjoyed having the freedom of the grounds! Venita, the owner, was an absolute gem. Attention to detail, pride in everything, nothing... More

Most wonderful guest house. We stayed in the cottage with kitchenette which was beautifully warm with under floor heating seeing that Oudtshoorn can get very cold. It was superbly comfortable and lovely beds made for fantastic nights sleep. Thanks and would definitely stay again if I am in the area again.

We had two weeks of holiday in Cape Town and the Garden Route in May 2014 and stayed 6 different 4* guest houses. This is the best one we have experienced. It is a beautiful complex with a lot of features, lovely garden, big pool. The household quality is in its best. The cottage floor is electrically heated, giving very... More

We spent one night in the cottage adjacent to the Guest House and could not fault anything. The bedrooms are comfortably furnished, the livingroom with kitchen is spacious and well equipped, the bathroom is huge with both bath and shower and the host and hostess were friendly and ready to provide information and advice on any subject. The premises are... More

We were welcomed warmly upon arrival and offered drinks and tips for restaurants. The cottage was charming! The facilities excellent, bed was comfortable, area is very quiet, and it was gated so we felt safe. The grounds were beautifully landscaped. The breakfast was delicious, plentiful and graciously served. Loved talking to our charming, interesting informative hosts! It was a wonderful... More

We had a lovely family cottage and our lovely and very helpful hosts offered excellent breakfast, a pool and a braai area. A very good place which we can only recommend if you stay over in Oudtshoorn.

We were made to feel really welcome. When we first arrived, we were invited to an informal get together over drinks where we met the other guests. The owners were very informative about the area and the best places to eat out and even arranged reservations for us. The surroundings of the guest house are lovely too.
