After staying in quite a number of places in the Western Cape this one came as both a surprise and a relief. The surprise is the simple charm of the house and its setting - the former delightfully old-fashioned and the latter pleasingly casual - and the relief is the discovery that for once you really do feel at home....

We travelled with our 3yr old son and this was a great place to base ourselves for 4 nights. The place is really relaxed and welcoming with enough to do in the grounds with all the animals to see/ feed, the playroom and the pool. It's well located for visiting the region (but you do need a car) and the... More

A great country house to spend some time in over the wedding weekend. Very good service from the friendly staff, from drinks to the brilliant breakfast. The owner was very accommodating with a late checkout and other queries we had. "Castle" the local labrador is just the best!

This is a beautiful old Cape house filled with furniture of the period. The wood gleams, there is a smell of polish, and the copper, which is everywhere, shines brightly. It still belongs to the family of the Mancunian who was Cecil Rhodes' right hand man in fruit farming, and Rudyard Kipling as well as Rhodes stayed here. The house... More

Unfortunately we were only able to stay for 1night, but was made to feel so welcome. We loved the homely feel and the history of the place. Peacocks nesting and Castle the Labrador were wonderful. My husband made a new friend 😃. Would definitely recommend.

2 charming nights here whilst visiting the wine area. The location (as is so often the case with many things in Franschhoek) is lovely and peaceful. We arrived having made no firm plans for our 2 days in the area and the owner was superbly attentive in immediately addressing this, booking us (in a very busy period in the area)... More

This was a great place for our family to be in preparation for our son's wedding. The house is so interesting with all of its history. The rooms in the house are beautiful. We did not stay in the house, may have had we known how nice the rooms were. We were there in a heat wave so where we... More

We were sleeping there 2 nights around New Year and liked it! We were sleeping in the goat house which was o.k, but who made it was Peter the manager. Not only he fixed a lovely braai on the 31st also he fixed us a fantastic restaurant on the 1st, calling literally many restaurants to fix it. A great place... More

This old Cape Dutch home is certainly a treat. It's a humble yet wonderfully peaceful getaway. Make sure to watch the video on the history of the house which certainly brings the place to life. An all-round enjoyable stay

Lekkerwijn is a delightful heritage property in a wonderful setting. The personnel and service are excellent and provide a very comfortable environment for your stay. Peter and his team went out of their way to ensure our visit went flawlessly. The area has many charms including wineries and nearby communities.
