During the most difficult time of the year Stephan, Fabiano and Monique were the most incredible hosts!! The villa is beautiful and immaculate! The service, food, hospitality and charm is second to none! You all made us feel so relaxed, happy and nothing was too much trouble!! You helped us so much with our baby and accommodated our needs to another level!! We hope to be back very soon! This place is a must stay ***** 5 starts!!!

Excellent service from Stephen and Fabian, the food was incerdible and the wine selection is admirable! We had a lovely private room (almost a suite) that was really comfortable with a great bed, spacious bathroom and our own outside shower (always a bonus!) The only very slight criticism is that the cables on the bedside lamps were too short, which made reaching the switch rather difficult as it was about 1m away from the edge of the bed. The location is great on the edge of town, so while you're in Oudtshoorn you're not really in Oudtshoorn, ie. away from traffic and noise.
