Stayed there in October after seeing it and stopping by on a whim. Went to some tastings, checked out a few other places, and returned because it had so much to offer. Karin and the girls treated us first class and accommodated our every request, including a late check-out to play a little more tennis after the wonderful breakfast! The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are spacious and private. It was the perfect destination in a wonderful area. I will definitely recommend it to friends who make the trek to South Africa.
