Had an "apartment" in the garden. Very comfortable and in an excellent position for central Franschhoek. We were made to feel very welcome and wished we could have stayed longer. Sharon was very helpful recommending where to eat etc.

Franschhoek is absolutely beautiful! Spotless and very comfortable accommodation. Sharan a very friendly host. Great breakfast! Little Smiley the dog is a delight- I wanted to take him home :)! 1-2 min walk into the Main Street. Great base for our 3 day wine tour! Thank you so much much! We will return!!

This most friendly of B&B's with a relaxing atmosphere was the ideal place to start our South African adventure. A group of four (2 couples) we stayed three nights. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts including being woken at 05.00 a.m due to our early morning balloon flight (thank you Sharon). I would not hesitate in recommending or... More

Our party of 4 adults from N. Ireland stayed for 5 nights. We all had a wonderful time enjoying the friendliness of Sharon and her staff. Nice garden area in which to relax and enjoy the sun and drink wine of course. Lovely breakfast served every morning by Sharon herself. Easy 5 minute walk into the village. We are already... More

This was the perfect location for us. Just off the main road and walking distance to all the restaurants in the town. Sharon and Charlie were great hosts. Rooms were spotless overlooking the garden and pool. I don't think we could better this spot and would certainly return. I Accidentally left some clothes in a drawer and Sharon kindly posted... More

We moved to the couch house after a night elsewhere in franschhoek. We were delighted with the move. This provides great value - clean decent room, lovely garden to sunbathe in with a pool, a few minutes walk to the Main Street, comfortable bed and Sharon was so hospitable and lovely. A very warm welcome and stay. Thanks!
