De Kuilen Country House is a perfect retreat from the jostle of Johannesburg. Being set among beautifully kept gardens tranquillity descends upon you the second you arrive. There are many comfortable areas for you to sit back and relax from the sheltered veranda in the courtyard, the front terrace and the drawing room. The décor and finishing’s throughout the house including the rooms are wonderful, a great deal of care has been taken for each room to have its own unique touches and the house to retain the character of Cape Dutch manor.
Both of the hosts, Anne-Marie and Charles, are a wealth of knowledge from gardening, wine, history and much more. They have a vast book collection to match which covered every topic I could have wished for. I just wish I was a faster reader!
For those who love their food and wine this will definitely not disappoint, Anne-Marie along with the chefs are extremely good cooks and the meals are somehow always the perfect choice of dish and size.
Overall, the ambiance created by the wonderfully completed rooms, the welcoming staff and the hosts make you feel free to roam and very much part of this grand and welcoming home. I would love to be able to come here on a frequent basis and highly recommend it to anyone who plans to visit Johannesburg.
