Desde o começo Micaela foi super gentil, tinhamos um bebê e uma criança e ela... More

From the moment we walked in we were made to feel at home. Great location for the centre of Franschhoek and the owner made some excellent recommendations/reservations for dinner. We would definitely stay here again.

The Corner House has recently been taken over by Michaela and her husband. They have loving redecorated and the rooms are an absolute delight. They are thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and the personal touches that Michaela adds make one feel special upon arrival. It was our honeymoon and as soon as Michaela found this out there was a lovely bottle... More

Beautiful cosy guesthouse with an attentive and super friendly host. Breakfast was a major treat and sleeping in a little longer than usual was comfortable. Your suggestions and recommendations of what to see and where to eat was extremely helpful as we were not familiar with Franschhoek . Your friendly manner will keep us coming back for more. Awesome stay... More

Beautiful accommodation nestled in the heart of Franschhoek. The staff are warm and friendly. The rooms are clean. Breakfast was the highlight, every morning was welcomed in with a fire and a breakfast spread from heaven. The atmosphere is tranquil, friendly, authentic much like the owner and her father Micheala and Rudy. Really felt at home during my stay and... More

The mrs and I checked in the Friday afternoon and were greeted by the warmest and friendliest lady named Karen. Then Michaela, the owner came to attend to all our needs personally. Our room was perfect, from welcome mints and cards. No TV, which was great. I could not ask for a more idealic setting. Everything on point right up... More
