Jan and Susanne are wonderful hosts. The 3 bedroom 1st floor apartment that they give to guests is very well maintained. The rooms are spacious and allow for families with kids to stay comfortably (they have bunk beds in addition to the double beds in some of the rooms).
We reached there on christmas and Susanne had thoughtfully placed christmas crackers on the beds - the kids were absolutely delighted.
The view all around is like a picture postcard. You can sit for hours on the terrace outside the living room and watch the birds come to feed on the fruit laid out for them by Jan. The mornings especially were lovely - with a hearty breakfast on the terrace, and a telescope to watch the birds on a distant tree.
The place is just off the main road, and easy to reach. We used it as a base for our trips to Pletternberg Bay (1.5 hrs drive), Bloukrans (bungee jumping - 2 hrs drive) and Knysna. George airport is barely 30 mins away. The place has a grocery store close by (we actually cooked one dinner in the well supplied kitchen) and several restaurants too.
Jan knows the region very well and gave us good tips on planning our short 2 day trip. Wish it was longer!
Highly recommended for Garden Route!!
