Two nights in the Homestead at Farm 215 was a perfect way to end a week-long break with our two young boys. Situated in the Uilkraal Valley between Stanford and Cape Agulhas in the Western Cape’s unspoiled Overberg; a 20 km drive from the fishing town of Gansbaai, Farm 215 is a serene nature retreat & fynbos reserve.

Farm 215 is paradise found! The Fynbos Suites are absolutely amazing, and such good value for money. Imagine waking up with uninterrupted views of fynbos, vineyards and the ocean at the horizon! It's far enough to feel like you are completely isolated, and walks or horse rides in the reserve is a perfect getaway from it all. But it's close... More

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
