We had an amazing time at Annette and Barry's place! It was our first stop for our honeymoon trip and we couldn't have picked a much better place to start. They are amazing hosts, and take the time to make everyone feel at home - from helping to set up daily itineraries, to booking dinner reservations, and offering suggestions for... More

We stayed for two nights in early January 2015. Annette and Barry are the consummate hosts referred to in earlier reviews. The garden house itself is a very generous size, with all that we needed: a comfy bed, strong shower, big bath and aircon. Breakfast was taken on the terrace of the main house, as were pre-dinner drinks - with... More

We spent a couple of nights in Frankschhoek (should have stayed longer) and thoroughly enjoyed Annette and Barry's company, such wonderful hosts, easy to talk to and very entertaining. A younger couple on honeymoon they quickly took us under their wing and made us feel right at home. Beautiful setting, very good breakfast and even better company for evening drinks... More

We spent two nights in this B&B as part of our trip to SA in early December. We booked the cottage which is very charming. The hosts, Annette and Barry, will go out of their way to make you feel at home. And what about the views? Having breakfast (which was delicious by the way!) on the terrace whilst enjoying... More

Because we love the Garden House SO much. Annette and Barry are the perfect hosts - and the house is beautifully located with a stunning view of the valley past the banked white roses and pink hydrangeas. The thing that Annette and Barry have mastered is the knack of making you feel completely at home (albeit a luxurious home where... More

I have stayed at the Garden House many times now and each time it is impeccable. The hosts could not be more welcoming and the place could not be more ideal. The accommodation, the view, the breakfast, the location, the service ALL cannot be surpassed. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. And believe me, I am picky.

We had three nights to spend rather by surprise at the end of our Cape Town trip, and chose The Garden House. We are SO GLAD we did! We felt like "insiders" to Franschoek from our very first night here. Annette and Barry took us to Le Quartier Francaise cinema night our first night, and wangled us a table at... More

Quite simply a beautiful home in an idyllic setting. Annette & Barry (plus the resident cats & dogs) provide a warm welcome and we felt instantly relaxed. The location is great, within a short walk of all amenities in town and our only regret is not staying longer! We were lucky enough to stay during Annette's surprise birthday party, where... More
