Situated on a working Protea farm in the midst of the Stellenbosch winelands, this place is very central with beautiful views of the mountains. The rooms are quint and provide you have a mountain facing room - the view from your room is amazing!

You will be hard pushed for a better view from most accommodations. Beautiful. We stayed for two nights. The room we had was spacious and comfortable and lovely to be able to admire the view while lazing in bed. Plenty of wardrobe space and a very large bathroom,(not sure the nude portrait is ideal!) tea and coffee facilities in room.... More

It's a 10 minute drive to the center and the staff is very helpful and nice. I can recommend having the breakfast on your balcony facing the pool (best view). We... More

Renovated rooms with modern bathroom. the guesthouse is in the middle of a plantation, with great views. Amazing infinity pool and landscaping. Unfortunately not all rooms have views and some of the staff members were not very friendly. You must definitely have a car with you, there is nothing close by.
