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

An absolutely unforgettable experience at the Garden House! We (my husband and I) stayed two nights with our 18 year old daughter in early July. The Garden House is situated near the top of the road in a quiet, residential neighborhood, within walking distance from Franschhoek downtown. Even in winter, the garden was lovely and had such a variety of... More

We stayed just one night at this delightful cottage situated in the best part of Franschhoek, up a quiet street. It was warm, comfortable and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed meeting the owners Annette & Barry and their sweet pets. The complimentary mini bar was generously stocked and we devoured the delicious home made muesli, fruit and yoghurt supplied as part... More

Wonderful stay at the Garden House in June 2014. It was cold (by SA Standards) and the beautifully warm room was only matched by the warmth of our welcome by Annette and Barry. A mine of useful local information they happily discussed everything we wanted to know about Franschoek and the local area over a glass(es) of their well-chosen wine.... More

We stayed for just one night, but Annette and Barry really made us feel at home. As soon as we got there, Annette made arrangements for our lunch and dinner and had suggestions for what to do and see. We especially enjoyed sharing a glass of wine with them at sunset. The cottage itself is very comfortable, spacious, and well-appointed... More
