Having stayed out of town before, I decided it would be nice to stay where you could walk into the town. You are only a 10 minute stroll into the town itself, with lots of nice distracting shops on the way!
Gwen and Johan are excellent hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Gwen organised a taxi for us on evening to go to Rust en Vrede (a must by the way!), and then organised a oicnic for us during breakfast at a local winery. We stayed in the bedroom at the top of the stairs with a table and chairs outside. What a great room and a very comfortable bed. It had lots of storage space behind the beds, to hide your suitcase, a fridge with goodies in it (ice was readily available downstairs) and space to keep your wine chilled. The bathroom was amazing - great high powered shower, huge cubicle and a claw foot bath. Nice selection of toiletteries and plenty of them.
Breakfast was huge - good selection of fruit, cheese, yoghurt. Then cooked to order - try Johan's poached eggs.
Also a very nice, small pool, and Johan kindly turned ont he water jets for us.
If you don't want to eat out, there is a very good thai/chinese take away just around the corner and your hosts will gladly provide cutlery and plates.
Johan and Gwen are very passionate about their guest house and make you very welcome. The only slight put off for me was the biometric entry system. I always thought Stellenbosch was a very safe town, but this did make me rather wary.
But definitely stay here, if you want great service and position near to the town. Wifi access also very useful
