My husband and I visited The Garden House in January as part of our honeymoon and couldn't recommend it enough. Annette and Barry are fantastic hosts! On our first day staying there, they kindly allowed us to borrow a couple of bikes and we cycled up to a winery. This is the kind of added extra you just wouldn't get... More

We had a great time here when we visited in 2013, and we decided we would come back for a longer period to use as our our base in the winelands. We were not disappointed. Hosts were fantastic, helping us in deciding what to do, booking our restaurants for us, even taking us on a mountain bike ride and generally... More

We stayed in the cottage which was very spacious, pretty and private. Staying with Annette and Barry was like visiting with relatives (the ones you actually like!). They are lovely people – welcoming, informative and went to great lengths to make our visit special. Barry not only lent us bikes but took us out in his car into the mountains... More

The Garden House was recommended to us by friends, and well deserves its #1 listing on Trip Advisor. Annette and Barry were wonderful hosts and helped us get the best out of our stay in the area. The Garden House is one of the oldest houses in the town and a beautiful home. We loved its mountain views, delightful garden... More

We stayed at The Garden House for the last three nights of our holiday. I had a feeling we would be saving the best 'till last and I was right. The warm welcome from Annette when we arrived to our sad goodbye, everything was just lovely. We stayed in the cottage which had everything we could wish for. A nice... More

The Garden House from Annette & Berry is the place to be / stay for us in Franschhoek. We stayed 6 nights in the cottage, did not want to leave and booked again for next year - that says it all. Playing with the dogs and cats (still missing Lizzy), chilling at the pool in that so beautiful garden, taking... More

A beautiful House in lovely surroundings just a ten minute stroll from the main shops and restaurants. Very convenient for the Wine Tram pick-up. We stayed in one of the the well equipped and tastefully furnished cottages. Hosts Annette and Barry were wonderfully hospitable and a great source of help and information. Annette even gave us a lift one day... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at the end of our stay in South Africa. Annette and Barry are charming hosts, nothing is too much trouble and all our needs were met. The accommodation is clean and well thought out. If you are animal lovers, then this is the place for you - a couple of dogs to... More

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend away with Annette, Barry and the animals. We had the most delightful trip. Welcoming hospitality, a clean beautiful home with lovely feng shui, appetizing breakfasts and good company. What a pleasure. We look forward to our next trip.
