Annette and Barry have created an oasis in their Garden House in Franschhoek. There are so many pluses about staying there, but the warmth and hospitality of the hosts are the paramount features. We were treated like family, and the hosts had time for refreshments and appetizers with us over convivial conversation, with appropriate recommendations that suited our interests. Breakfasts...

We had a fantastic time at the Garden House. Annette & Barry are wonderful hosts and their guest house is perfect. If you love animals this is the place for you, they have 2 great dogs and 4 cats who welcome their guests into the fold. Annette & Barry know the area well and have great recommendations on where to... More

We stayed at the Garden House for one night on very short notice, and were accepted exceptionally well. We felt truly comfortable and enjoyed the cottage, the animals, the refreshments and the breakfast. Our host, Annette, were very friendly and understanding. I would recommend them to anyone!

It's hard to know where to start because the Garden House hit the spot for us in so many different respects. The Garden House, the garden and the pool are beautiful and the views all round are stunning. Our room was all you could wish for and the bathroom is amazing - loved the heated floors. But the real attraction... More

We stayed in the Garden House for two nights - great memories of smoked trout breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the stunning Franschoek valley, before heading out for a hard day's wine tasting, back to recharge and freshen up in the large and immaculate bathroom .Drinks were again served on the terrace then on to one of the many fine...

Annette and Barry are one of a kind. Charming, funny , quirky, they share themselves with passion, delight and humour.You will be utterly charmed by the beauty of the Cottage, the quality of the finishes, the immaculate attention to detail in the accommodation and the extra lengths they go to. We came as strangers, spent the night, and left as... More

We stayed for one night with Anette and Barry (and their delightful dogs and cats) at their lovely guesthouse. They provided us with bikes to explore the town, drinks before we went out for dinner at the Tasting Room, and fresh croissants in the morning. We can recommend the Garden House unreservedly.

My husband and I had the joy of spending two nights at The Garden House under Annette and Barry's care. Even before we arrived their wonderful hospitality was evident, with Annette going out of her way to book us on a wine tour at the last minute (the wine tour was fantastic btw!). From the moment we arrived we were... More

The garden house is a very special place. Annette and Barry really see after you, and that you have a pleasant stay. You stay in the garden cottage which is really nice (huge bathroom with floor heating which is nice in the winter when it can get cold, comfortable beds). In the afternoon Annette and Barry invite over for drinks... More

For us The Garden House was perfection and this is a combination of location, comfort, but most of all hospitality. The rooms was wonderful and everything you need is available and beautiful, as are the garden and the breakfast. Annette and Barry are however what make a stay here so exceptional as they are the perfect hosts who also have... More
