We stayed here based on other reviews - and we are so so happy that we did! Although Errol and Venita were away when we arrived we were welcomed warmly by their friend - and bowled over by the accommodation we were given - a small cottage with 2 bedrooms (a family of 4) - a big sitting room/kitchen area...

Vanita and Errol were very warm hosts and they made our stay very personal. The rooms and other guest facilities were excellent. It was a home from home, but better. The gardens around the guest house which were open to guests were beautiful and spending time in them really added to our stay. We would recommend this to our family... More

A most enjoyable visit. Mr and Mrs Pretorius were a charming and hospitable host and hostess. Safe off-road parking was provided. Beds and bedrooms were very comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent. Battery-powered lamps were provided for use during load shedding.

Bedrooms weren't has warm, but we weren't cold. Beautiful large bathroom and well equipped kitchenette. Beautiful garden which my kids, who were made... More

We were warmly welcomed by Venita and she looked after us our entire stay, even arranging for our laundry to be done at short notice and booking us on a Meerkat adventure the following day. The historic stone cottage was warm and cosy (underfloor heating), beautifully renovated with an amazing bathroom and perfect for a family of 4, . Breakfast... More

Most enjoyable stay even though only one night. The accommodation was neat and very clean. In the morning we were served a stunning breakfast. Hosts very friendly and make you feel very comfortable. Good advice on places to go and to eat out.

We only stayed for 1 night in winter because we were travelling to the eastern cape but after one night we wished we would have had more time. The guesthouse is wonderful, with a nice garden, poolsite, spacious rooms and ensuite bathrooms. Errol and Venita are amazing hosts who made our stay so great. They can tell you a lot... More

This is a large property close to the center of town. We stayed in a self contained cottage (converted stable) which was very comfortable, well furnished and spotlessly clean. There is a well stocked bar by the pool (it was too cold to swim) for a relaxing drink after a long day. The owners are very welcoming and full of... More

Loved our stay here- just 1 night passing through with UK friends. Vineta and Errol are so welcoming. Great breakfast. Faultless and very relaxing stay. Would have been great to spend another night to explore all Oudtshoorn and surrounds.

Surprisingly high standard guest house. Welcomed with a drink and information about restaurants. The rooms were the quality of a four star hotel. We experienced whilst out dining 'load shedding' and fortunately the owners were waiting for us to let us back into the property.
