Very cold and unfriendly. The accommodation advertised with heating. The single oil heater was not enough to even remotely heat the bedroom. We had a sleepless & cold night. The owner was not friendly.

Such a tranquil, relaxing getaway destination in the heart of beautiful Stellenbosch/ Somerset West Winelands! A place where we were able to recharge our souls from the busyness of fast paced city life! Our room was so comfy and the fireplace and heater added to this special holiday experience! Would LOVE 💕 to come again..... not to far from our home but far enough to feel super rested and spoilt! The owners are also so kind and hospitable. Couldn’t wish for more. Surrounded by gorgeous wine estates which are worth popping into. Highly recommend this homestead!

I absolutely LOVED everything about this place. Will definitely be back soon :-) If you are looking for a serene, tranquil, rustic, neat place to just break away from the hustle and bustle of City life then this is definitely the place to be! Requesting a private tour of the collection of AMAZING Classic cars was AWESOME! The staff there are Super friendly (including the watch dogs). See you again soon ;-)
