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

I spent a very pleasant 3 nights in Sunny Lane in December 2013 in the smaller of the two self catering rooms. It was simply equipped with everything I needed. Loved the small patio overlooking the garden and the company provided by the family cat. Barbara was friendly and helpful. 2 min walk to the centre of the village. Good... More

We choose one of the most dreadful weekend weather wise to go away for a weekend but the minute we arrived at Sunny Lane felt at home! We had a most comfortable stay with cosy under floor heating in the bedroom, comfy bed, hotel package DSTV in the lounge where my husband could enjoy watching sport and every other amenity... More

Highly recommended! Perfect accommodation, a culinary feast on your doorstep or if you want to, you can cook at home! Short pleasant walk to shops & restaurants. Underfloor heating in winter is great! Lovely little cottage and friendly cats! Will definitely book again at Sunny Lane next time we treat ourselves to a break in Franschhoek!
