An awesome destination, or perhaps an awesome 'retreat' within a private nature reserve. The eco-friendly units overlook a vast expanse of natural fynbos, mountains and the ocean in the distance. Well-appointed units with luxury furnishings and absolute privacy.

After driving a farm road for few miles we arrived to a true retreat of serenity and pure nature. We stayed at one of the Fynbos suites which provided even more privacy and amazing views to the valley that we had hoped for. The suite was really high-quality and naturally with eco-twist. It was lovely to just sit on the... More

Fabulous 2 days - amazing views, staff, food, accommodation. Even a wine tasting organised right here by locals Lomond Wines. Breakfast honey was so special and love the local and organic produce that you use to produce all the meals. Thank you!

As a returning guest at farm 215 it’s about time I wrote a review. I love the place, it’s tranquillity, the views, walks in the nature reserve, the rooms and suits. Maarten keeps upgrading the place and one can tell he takes the feedback of the guests at heart. The suites now have design chairs and desks to sit and... More

we ended our 3 week South Africa holiday at Farm 215 staying there as part of a two day horse trek with the African Horse Company. So starting with Farm 215 we spent one night in a room in the main house and upgraded to a Fynbos Suite for our last night. The room in the house was wonderful -... More

Having visited the farm twice now, I can say that it offers a wonderfully quiet breakaway for those wanting to get out of town, or even those visiting the region for the first time. Staying in the chalet's are a must. They are well equipped, have exceptional views and enough privacy for those weekend getaways with the loved one. The... More

We ended up at Farm 215 through a friends recommendation. And we are so happy that we followed up. Farm 215 is a totally amazing place. Me and my friend had not planned it, but we ended up staying much longer than planned, hung out, went for long walks, read some books, took pictures, drank some excellent wines, had great... More

This is our second visit to Farm 215. We stayed in one of the Fynbos Suites again which have beautiful views across the Farm and down to the sea. The retreat is a lovely place to unwind - we walked and went horse riding as well as taking time out to explore the local area. The service is thoughtful and... More

Set against a hill amongst the fybos, Farm 215 is the perfect getaway spot for people seeking some peace and tranquility. This was our third visit and we stayed for 3 nights in one of the Fynbos Lodges, which are perfectly set into nature. With a huge window front all along the building, the design of the Fynbos Lodges facilitates... More

Although Farm 215 is actually fairly close to Gansbaai, you really feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, with gorgeous views and no shortage of peace and quiet. The Fynbos chalets are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the meals, nice variety for breakfast and both the set 3 course dinners were fabulous but let them know... More
