Perfect base for day trips in the Cape Town/wine area. Good beds, quiet and safe. Very nice to have your own garden with swimming pool. Try this accommodation when you tired of hotels and want a more everyday living.

The location of the place is very practical as you have everything in walking distance. The room.was well equipped and comfortable. The host is not really helpful which was ok for us. Very good value for money.

We really enjoyed our stay.The reception was quick and friendly. The location is very central to all the wine farms. Everything was nice and clean, only the kitchenette area could do with some serious upgrading

Magda stayed in our budget studio, which has a small kitchenette (it has a hotplate, bar fridge and microwave and everything one needs for a cozy stay). I am sorry she found it inadequate as most of our visitors have been pleasantly...

I loved this place, very conveniently located and very comfortable. A wonderful hostess and friendly kittys made it a memorable stay. Underfloor heating made it really pleasant in the cooler evenings and there is a pool for those hot summer days. I would highly recommend it.

Best hostess ever! Very accommodating. On my arrival it was rainy and cold but the underfloor heating was a true blessing and welcoming surprise! The room is very private and overlooks a beautiful enclosed pool area. Quiet and peaceful neighbourhood just a short walk to central town. Absolute value for money!

Excellent Studio flat for a visit to Franschoek. Close to all the wineroutes of Paarl, Franschoek and Stellenbosch. Also close to the wonderful Franschoek restaurants - make sure you book! I can recommend Sunny Lane if you're going to be spending most of your time tasting, sightseeing, eating and experiencing the area.

A lovely cosy place to stay in Franschoek! The underfloor heating is a real blessing in the cold winter nights. The bed is warm and very comfortable. Sunny Lane is within walking distance from restaurants and shops. Will definitely stay there again!
