We stayed at The Garden House in early December with some relatives who were visiting from overseas. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Garden House is beautiful. The grounds are impeccable: lush and green with a great pool area for hot days. The rooms are very nice and a great value for Franschhoek. We stayed in the double room... More

The best welcome in our tour of the garden route came from Annette and Barry as they called to us that the gate was open and we entered to meet Benjie and Lizzie (dogs) and three adorable cats – she works very hard to help with rehoming cats but inevitably cannot let go of them all. The situation of this... More

We were made welcome by the entire family as soon as we arrived at the wonderfully situated Garden House. Annette and Barry could not do enough for us and Benjie, Lizzie and the cats all made us feel at home. The cottage has everything you need and more, is very comfortable and well appointed. It's a pleasant 15 minute stroll... More

We arrived at the Garden House hoping to stay there, only to discover it was champagne festival and every room in Franschoek was booked, including the wonderful Garden House. Regardless, Annette set about to do the impossible using her contacts and find us accommodation, which she did, managing to book us in at the lovely Ashbourne House. When we decided... More

Our two night stay here was like being in a family home. Anette and Barry took great care of us, greatly helping with which restaurants to go to and which vineyards to visit. The fact that there are only two guest rooms meant that this was a very personal experience. My wife and I really loved the rescued dogs and... More

We spent five wonderful days in the cottage. It is on a quiet street five minutes from the centre. It is a five star place run by five star owners, Anette and Barry make you feel so much at home, Whether its advice on where to visit or the booking of restaurants, of which Franschhoek has many,nothing is too much...

Spent two wonderful nights at the garden house stayed in the Garden Room, accommodation great attention to detail. Anette made sure we wore sun tan lotion and made sure we had water for our day out! Great breakfast, don't be put off by the fact it's not a cooked breakfast. Just one complaint - the stay was not long enough!... More

I can only agree with what everyone else has said about spending time at the gorgeous Garden House. We felt like very welcome house guests, and were able to relax totally. I arrived with a bit of a cold, and Annette provided an excellent and very effective cold remedy (not available in Ireland, so we bought some to bring home... More
