“Just don't know...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

... why untill now this B&B is only No. 36 in Stellenbosch. But perhaps this is a good thing, since this seems to make it a quiet hideaway. Heather is a very nice and caring host, the rooms are spacious, modern and comfortable and the garden with its views are not less than paradise.

We have stayed for only one night in Mana Guest house but we would have loved to stay longer. It is absolutely wonderful there, a beautiful house, nice rooms, very quiet and the most gorgeous garden with pool and a stunning view over the wine mountains. Heather is very nice and provided us with all information and help we needed. We will definitely come back next time we travel to SA, that is absolutely sure. It is the perfect place to stay to discover and enjoy the wine region and to relax in the sun in this beautiful and huge garden.

Wow, what a place !
Wow, what a view, certainly one of the best in Stellenbosch, & possibly one of the best in the world.
Wow, what rooms, especially if you book either Merlot or Shiraz which are nestled right on the edge of the vineyard. Extremely spacious & beautifully decorated, very private with their own terrace & garden.
Wow, what a breakfast, Jonathan certainly knows his way around the kitchen. Served on the terrace overlooking vineyards & mountains, it's just totally the best way to start the day. If you've never experienced the breakfast muesli crunch you should put it on your bucket list.
Wow, what hosts. Heather & Jonathan are great at what they do, nothing is too much trouble, & both have a great knowledge of local restaurants & wine, they always know what's new & happening & they always manage to find some hidden gems.

We've made Mana our base in the winelands twice in the past year. It's at the end of the Devon Valley road hence little passing traffic. The boutique guest house has comfortable rooms with all the usual comforts. Sitting outside you have a view of the surrounding vines and probably the most gorgeous winelands in the world. Breakfast is taken on the terrace (weather permitting) and makes you wish that owners Heather and John were still running a restaurant. No tired old fry up this but a splendidly put together, mouth watering start to the day.
There are plenty of restaurants nearby for lunch and dinner and the J C le Roux restaurant is withing walking distance as is the Devon Valley Hotel.

We could not fault anything about Mana. John and Heather were great hosts and a fantastic source of local information especially the wine routes. The setting is stunning, the individually styled accommodation is first class as are the breakfasts. We will definitely be returning and would recommend this to anyone. David and Helene.

Thanks Heather and John for another great stay at Mana!! Breakfasts once again superb and sitting around the pool in your beautiful garden - most relaxing!! Early morning walks were most enjoyable in such picturesque surroundings. A great location with a short drive to so many wineries and town just ten minutes drive away - what more could you ask for? We will be back to enjoy your great hospitality.

The plus points here are spacious stylish rooms, a very beautiful peaceful garden with fantastic views, a great pool, excellent breakfasts and great hosts.
The minus points are it's remote so you have to drive a long way to eat and if you are in one of the cottages on the edge of the property you might feel a bit isolated.

Room Tip: Note the comment about the isolation of the cottages on the edge of the property.
