“Utopia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We would not hesitate for a second to recommend this "home away from home" guest house. From the minute we arrived, our children felt at home and thought we were visiting old friends. The warm hospitality of this delightful family goes way above expectation. The villa is decorated with a very stylish vintage feel...warm colours and beautifully thought out moto's painted in gorgeously decorated cosy corners. You almost feel cheated if you have not sat down in every comfy spot and allowed yourself to unwind. Amazing meals prepared by the lovely Elriza and Lollies who cater for your every need, superb location and excellent value for money.....what more could you ask for? Thanks guys for an outstanding stay!!!

Lovely, well appointed country house, close to all the sights of Outdshoorn and the Swartberg. Lollie and team are friendly and hospitable hosts. The ostrich fillets were delish thanks Lollie.

Highly recommended for a country stay

Room Tip: The garden rooms are beautiful

A truly refreshing break-away from Cape Town city-life. Service was efficient & friendly and the owners were warm and welcoming! Meals were exquisite, created by the owner, himself with care and pride! Decor is fresh with a vintage touch and inspirational wall-hangings & paintings in all apartments! Complementary port & chocolates sweetened our stay even more. Only 10 mins drive from Oudtshoorn, I will definitely visit again.

Our hosts Lollie and Elzira are enthusiastic and determined to make their B&B one of the most sought after in the area and despite only being there for a little over a year they have improved the establishment enormously and will go from strength to strength

My husband and I have just had a beautiful experience, being spoilt and pampered during our two day stay at this immaculate guest house, where nothing was too much trouble for our delightful hosts. We appreciated the many unexpected ways in which they expressed their warm hospitality. The attention to detail is reflected in the comfortable, stylish accommodation, perfectly maintained surroundings,as well as the exquisitely prepared and presented meals. The genuinely kind and caring ambiance made our visit a truly uplifting experience. We enjoyed the sophistication of the guesthouse, combined with the interest of being on a working farm.Lollies and his wife Elriza, have combined their many gifts and skills to perfection!

Room Tip: all rooms are lovely

Of all the places that we gone to and stayed in,one place will be forever be high on my list of guesthouses.
Thank you Lollies & Elriza for opening your home and your hearts to us. Your room were sparkling clean with spaces bathroom and so much energy that it was such a honour to meet two lovely individuals. It felt like we were visiting family, instead of a guesthouse.
Your food was of the highest quality

Room Tip: all room equally good
