This place offers great personalized service from the friendly management. It is small scale, and offers only bed & breakfast, which was excellent, and served on a beautiful terrace. The Guest House is in a great location for wine-tasting tours (book in advance during peak periods), with proximity to e.g. Thelema, Tokara, and Oldenberg. There are also nice lunch and... More

Admittedly we really should have done our research before booking this guesthouse as it was too far out of Stellenbosch for us as we weren't driving. Completely our mistake. With next to no taxi services willing to drive out to Kylemore we were completely dependent on the shuttle service of the owner and when he was able to drive us.... More

My second time at this guesthouse, and they will definitely see me again. You can't get better value for money. Peaceful and super relaxing with awesome hosts. Seriously can't think of anything that wasn't perfect

The guest houses are run by a nice friendly gentleman and his wife and they really went out of their way to assist us.... More

We were looking for some reasonably priced accomodation for a wedding in Zorgvliet and were lucky enough to find this still available. The host was SO accomodating, and really went the extra mile, including shuttling us back and forth to and from the wedding well past midnight - although it is very close to Zorgvliet, I wouldn't think it is...

My girlfriend and I recently visited Stellenbosch on our trip to South Africa. We stayed at this bed and breakfast over the new year and we enjoyed our stay (except for all the gunfire at midnight!!). There was two pools to relax at and to do a spot of sun bathing at and the gardens are very nice. It was... More

A great, quiet place with comfortable lodges, a huge garden with 2 pools and stunning views. Breakfast is on the veranda of the friendly ( German) owners house with a great view on the estate. A bit far away from Stellenbosch (10 min by car). Good wifi and safe parking.

Made a booking at this place for March 2015 and the confirmation indicated that a deposit of 50% was payable and which was due at least 14 days before arrival. On Sunday I received a bank SMS advising that an amount had been debited by Booksure. I immediately thought it was fraudulent (had 2 instances before) and phoned the number... More
