Going to a Wedding in the Stellenbosch area? or simply passing through? This is the place to stay. What a gem! We had a short but truly wonderful stay.

The BnB itself...

We spend the weekend away from the kids. It was a tranquil stay with nice view of the mountain. Cozy and warm home feeling with nice hospitality. The room had a nice view of the mountains and the pool looks so inviting but pity it was during the cold season.
