I've been visiting Fynbos Estate for many years, and it is truly an annual highlight for my husband and I. Winter visits are filled with beautiful mountain walks, loads of relaxation and fireplace and red wine evenings. Summer visits are all about lazing under the great trees, splashing in the pool and enjoying nothing but birdsong from the veranda. We... More

I had the privilege of celebrating my 50th birthday at Fynbos Estate with family and friends, and it could not have been a more perfect weekend. From initial contact, through to accommodating a group varying in ages from 4 to 79, including 2 Jack Russells, Diana, Johan and Gail quietly and efficiently facilitated the festivities - resulting in a superb...

Our group of friends have been to Fynbos estate a couple of times and it is great! It is very spacious with plenty of bathrooms. It is quite hard to find a house with 7 double rooms to cater for a large group of people so it really is one of a kind:) The owners are very friendly and the... More

We had a lovely week long stay at the Fynbos House. It felt like staying in our own farm house with exceptionally lovely views from sunrise through to sunset. The children loved the animals that could be fed any time of the day and the very relaxed atmosphere.

I have recently had my second retreat at Fynbos in the company of a group of meditators from all over South Africa. The relaxed atmosphere, the wonderful gardens, the almost tame owls, the delicious food and wine.....everything combines to make this an unforgettable experience in a unique place. Hosts Diana and Johan catered for our every need, and we felt... More

This will have been the fourth or fifth extended meditation retreat Shambhala South Africa has held at Fynbos. We keep coming back because we consistently get everything we need, and then some. Diana and Johan really understand what we're about: meditation and the practice of being an authentic human being. So they make us extremely comfortable, and then seem to... More

I too feel privileged to have had 5 wonderful nights at the farm. The natural beauty of the... More

I have had the privilege of staying at Fynbos Estate three times, and am planning another visit for early February 2014. Each visit has been wonderful. The owners, Diane and Johan were amazing and went out of their way to make sure that our rather specific requests were met. Each time I have been to the Estate and spent time... More

We've recently returned from another wonderful stay on Fynbos Estate - a place as extraordinary for its natural beauty as for the facilities it offers its visitors. We know the Estate well, having visited it with family and friends a great many times during the last 16 years. We think of it as ‘our’ corner of Paradise; so we’re always... More

14 of us booked the Farm House for a long weekend getaway from Cape Town. The setting was absolutely beautiful with stunning views through the valley. We enjoyed the wide open spaces and the peaceful setting. There were however a few blemishes in the overall experience.. The website advertises a capacity of 16 people, however the house does not have... More

What a pity that you didn’t enjoy yourself, and a bit surprising as we got a very positive response from the person who organised the weekend. I suspect there were some communication breakdowns, so you weren’t aware that we gave you the dining room (without all mod cons) as a favour so you could all be in the same house.... More
