Lovely rooms with private veranda looking out to a shaded garden with pool. Off road secure parking, warm welcome and safe to walk around to numerous restaurants. Excellent home prepared breakfast with fresh fruits, yoghurt, muesli and home made bread etc, with hot options too. The host kindly offers a glass of Muscadel port wine too. Try it. It's lovely

The property is easily found right on the main road, but no road noise whatsoever. There are just a few rooms set in a lovely garden, with a small but very adequate...

Friendly hosts, great atmosphere, spacious room, charming pool area in a little town on South Africa's route 62. The breakfast is served by the host and extremely delicious. A visit in the restaurant Simply Delicious (350m) from the Guesthouse is also recommended strongly. Kathrin & Martin
