We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed our stay. Rosa and Larry are warm-hearted hosts and very helpful! We will definitely remember this guesthouse with its absolutely wonderful garden. Thank you very much for your hospitality! It was one of the best guesthouses we stayed at during our whole trip.

Spent 2 nights at The Secret Garden. Rosa & Larry are great hosts and have lovely house and garden set right in the heart of Montagu. We stayed in the loft apartment which is both spacious and well appointed (stairs on the steep side though). Breakfast was served in the beautiful garden. A real gem, thoroughly recommended .

We have just spent 3 weeks in SA, staying in a variety of B&Bs. This was the best. Larrie and Rosa have renovated the whole place in a wonderfully stylish way from the bedroom to the garden. We stayed in the loft room which was spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were great and again the food had that style component....

Everything was great! Rosa and Larry are a fantastic couple and the room they offered was equally fantastic! We especially loved the bathtub and the breakfast in the garden (the secret one ;)). We wholeheartedly recommend this accomodation to everyone!

Our hosts, Rosa and Larry, could not have made us welcome when we arrived at the Secret Garden. We stayed in the Loft room which is up a flight if stairs but well worth the effort. It is a lovely, bright and airy room with real character. The real gem in this property is the garden which has been brought...

We only had one night in Montagu before our stay at Jan Harmsgat, but it was a very nice night. Our host, Larry, was extremely congenial-we even ended up going out for dinner with him and then back to his place for dessert. The suite is on the top floor and is very clean and quiet. The beds are the...

Rose and Larry were wonderful hosts and we spent a great (although short) time here! Lots of inputs for travel, restaurants and nice chats in the stunning garden. Are you looking for a lovely spot in Montagu, then look no further - here it is!

The owners were so very friendly and helpful to us, they booked us in around the corner at the Kookermans kitchen and it was delicious. Good location for some wine farms and the Avalon springs. If I had to nit pick our room didn't have a tv but we had free roam of the lounge tv and played chess. Lovely...

I spent a night at this B@B in the beautiful and delightful town of Montagu. I loved everything about it. The rooms are so tastefully decorated with warm wood and splashes of burnt red - a pleasant change from the "all white" in so many establishments. The attention to detail is noticeable in the comfort and welcoming feel immediately evident...
