We visited Sunny Lane in Franschoek for two days! We were in the Small Self Catering Unit and really enjoyed every minute! Everything was spotless and SL is walking distance from the town centre which made it very easy for us! We also enjoyed the cats!

Sunny lane is a lovely self-catering facility in the heart of the Franschhoek village. Close to nearby restaurants and shops. The rooms are set in a secluded private courtyard setting. Spacious, light and airy. Would definitely recommend it if you want accommodation which gives you the flexibility of choice to eat out for every meal or to have a quite... More

Sunny Lane was great!! Barbara was very friendly and we were even upgraded to the bigger room at no additional cost! The room itself was very comfortable and cosy. Ideal position off the main road in town!! We will definitely go back for our next trip to Franschoek!!

we stayed 2 nights at Sunny Lane while visiting the wine country. The studio was on a quiet street within walking distance to shops and restaurants. It had a patio set in a nice garden and a very friendly cat who was always there to greet us. The kitchenette was small, but well equipped to prepare small meals. The owner... More

We stayed in the larger apartment for a week in March. We were very impressed with the space, comfort and tranquillity. The apartment is furnished to a high standard and the daily service was a bonus. The apartment is set in a pretty residential area but just 10 minutes walk from the centre of Franschhoek with all its restaurants and... More

We stayed at a Sunny Lane for two nights and can't recommend it highly enough. We had the smaller studio, but it was more than adequate for two of us and very nicely decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, cutlery etc and we loved the table and chairs on the terrace outside. The location is fabulous and,... More

Barbara was friendly and helpful. I stayed for 30 days. The location was the best. Short walk to the center of town. I loved having my morning coffee on the veranda after a great and comfortable sleep in a very comfortable bed. I stayed in the small unit which was equipped with all of the necessities for self catering. Plenty... More

We enjoyed having Katherine to stay for a month and are so glad that she enjoyed her stay as well! Popcorn, our family cat, befriended Katherine and seemed to enjoy her company. However, if guests do not like Popcorn, it is quite easy to make him keep his distance. He does get the message! More

Had the smaller apartment for 2 nights & really enjoyed our stay. Weather was very good so weren't in the apartment much, but slept well! Enjoyed relaxing round the pool after a day out & about. Short walk to the main road with excellent cafés and restaurants. Would definitely stay again & recommend.

My husband and I tried to book a stay at Sunny Lane in December two years ago, but the establishment was fully booked at the time. We're so glad we booked early enough this time round, as Sunny Lane really was the ideal place to stay in Franschhoek. We chose the smaller of the two apartments because we knew we'd... More
