Hestea the incredible hostess of Jakaranda really looked after my friend and myself on a one night stay passing through Oudtshoorn.
We slept in comfortable rooms with gas panel heaters and Hestea further warmed the house by burning wood in the living room fire.
It felt a bit more like visiting a favorite Aunty than staying in a guesthouse which was really nice.
When we enquired about taxis to enjoy a bit of a night out she refused and rather introduced us to her son, Seabastion who was kind enough to drop us off in town and meet up with us after dinner to enjoy a beverage or three at the local taverns.
The breakfast was out of this world set on a carefully prepared dining room table along side the pool and in the morning sun. Every part of the 2 course breakfast was enjoyed.
Whenever passing through Oudtshoorn in the future we will be sure to drop in again on Hestea.
