He also prepared us a truly delicious three course meal which we enjoyed on the deck. As a B&B it is very well equipped, comfortable, impeccably clean and cosy. With a... More

We had a super nice stay at Boven Villa. Sumptuous breakfast (and delicious dinners prepared on request). The owners are stunning people and assisted us with fabulous information around the area as well as surrounding areas. Nice hiking trails, horse riding and lots of site viewing - not too far from the caves and various other places of interest. Thanks... More

The place is really beautiful and a relaxing break from hectic city life. Sean shows a lot of concern for his guests. I liked the fact we were able to be as noisy as we please. The rooms were really beautiful and in a very clean state.

We spent 3 nights at Boven Villa this December. Sean was a gracious host and was on hand at all times to sort out any issues. Sean and his support lady, Joyce, provided a professional service. We were given free reign to use the kitchen which is normally reserved for staff only. He made us feel completely at home. We... More
