'Shabby chic' style boutique guest house. Two exceptional members of staff, Stewart and Nabila, make the place what it is. Excellent breakfasts, comfortable rooms, nice garden and small pool with loungers. If you order in a take-away, or fire up the BBQ, mats, cutlery, candles and coffee seamlessly appear. 'Honesty' bar. Bedrooms would benefit from air-conditioning, and some parts a little tired. A word of caution if travelling with small children, the pool is very close to the building and there are unprotected drops (for instance a deep stone stair well and low walls around terraced lawn) of safety concern. Babysitting available but London rates (R500 for 4.5 hours - vineyard grape-picker rates R11.4 an hour) On the plus side, in the main they are very co-operative in use of kitchen for preparing children's tea or baby bottles.
