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

Annette and Barry made us feel that we were staying with friends. They are the most charming and informative hosts one could hope for. The Garden House is well run and is in an excellent location as it is a short walk into the town where there is a veritable smorgasbord of places to eat. The only regret was that... More

We very much enjoyed our 3 night stay in the Garden cottage and found Annette and Barry to be hospitable and welcoming. Annette offered good recommendations on restaurants which we followed and concurred with. We enjoyed pleasant chat and debate on a wide range of issues with them accompanied by a large Gin and Tonic served each evening on the... More

My boyfriend and I visited Franschoek in October 2014 and were lucky enough to get a room in the fantastic Garden House. It had outstanding reviews and now I know why. Our hosts Annette and Barry were warm, helpful and welcoming from the second we arrived. The room was stunning - clean, homely with a beautiful en-suite. Breakfasts were delicious... More

We stayed at the Garden House in October and had a great time. The cottage is set in a beautiful rose garden, is spacious, with a huge bathroom, drinks fridge, cookies, local guides and a very good DVD collection if wine tasting gets the better of you! My personal highlights were the numerous pets and breakfasts on the patio overlooking... More

Thanks Annette and Barry for another stellar weekend in Franschhoek. I was delighted at the sight of the sea of white roses in full bloom, the marvellous breakfast on the patio with the most gorgeous view; and no-fuss wifi even at the pool-side in the garden so that I could steal a few moments of work (without it feeling like...

Our weekend was to spend time in the Open Gardens on display in the Franschhoek valley. This cottage is in a magnificent garden . Annette and Barry are great hosts and very caring of their guests' comfort. The cottage has everything you need and is very comfortable with a bar fridge containing drinks and water that are complimentary. There is... More

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...
