Can hardly believe such a stylish, welcoming, tranquil guest house exists in the small village of Calitzdorp. We stayed in many lovely places on our Garden Route/R62 trip but felt at our most relaxed here thanks to Andrew & Nell. We arrived later than anticipated after a long day & despite not having pre-booked dinner, Nell saved us having to... More

A haven of peace and tranquility just off the beaten track. Nell and Andrew could not have made us more welcome. Our room was spacious and clean, and Nell's cooking was outstanding. Dinner was exceptional and breakfast beautifully presented. If only it hadn't rained!! Highly recommended and would love to go back for more than one night.

Lovely place to stay. The hosts were most welcoming and friendly and the food was great, especially breakfast. Unfortunately we could only stay one night, but It was one of the best night's sleep of our extended holiday.

We were delighted to find this guest house and were rewarded by a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. This is a beautiful area and a worthwhile stop on the way around the garden route. We had an excellent meal despite the power cuts.

For a place like this the scale 0-10 is insufficient. This is absolutely the best place we visited during our (two couples) three week trip in South-Africa. Nell and Andrew show overwhelming hospitality. Rooms are large and with everything you want or need. The swimming pool is a delight and is in a wonderful panorama. The guesthouse is at the... More

We had the dowstairs room which is large and well-appointed with a large shower, bath and double sinks. Andrew and Nell go a long way to make you feel welcome. The swimming pool and surrounding area is defintely appreciated on a hot summers day and extra towels were left for us to use by the pool. We were also able... More

Thank you for a great review, it was lovely having you stay with us. I take note of your suggestion and will be adding a free ironing service to our list of services, which is hopefully better than providing an iron in each room. We look forward to your next visit. More

We enjoyed our stay very much. Beautiful room with everything we needed, delicious food and lovely hosts who provided great tips on what to see in the area. Excellent! Remember to select the dinner option when you book - you won't regret it. Loved the local cheese.

What a stunning guesthouse. Set amongst the vineyards with views across the Swartberg. Beautiful and most comfortable room and the house itself was stunning. Nell and Andrew are lovely hosts and we strongly recommend staying home for dinner. Nell is an outstanding cook.10/10.

A tranquil, really comfortable and spacious house with long views of the typical Karoo farm landscape and a genuine feel. Nell's cooking stood out as one of the best meals we have had - it had been a hot day, we did not feel like a large many-course dinner and she produced a snack platter of various delicious vegetables and...
