“Warmest Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

The Guesthouse was beautiful from the area to the grounds to the rooms. It is obvious in every detail that the proprietors have their hearts and souls into the place and into their guests’ comfort. My husband had a kidney stone attack on our first night and they were very concerned and accommodating, beyond what you might expect.

We had the privilege of staying overnight at Thylitshia Villa recently. What an extraordinary experience!
Not only was the accommodation opulent, but the dinner, with ostrich fillet specially prepared by the host, is comparable to any 5 star restaurant. What made the experience memorable, however,was the host and hostess's hospitality -- we could join them for a complimentary glass of sherry before a sumptuous meal. To crown it all, the host, who had the same day been discharged from hospital, following knee surgery, hobbled to the kitchen to prepare the fillet.

A tranquil farm setting, excellent service and warm hospitality -- seldom does one enjoy the privilege of encountering all of these at the same guest house.

Thisis a house where you feel immediately welcome. Lollies the host seems to be a very a very open and friendly guy. Very communicative and supportive although we stayed only one night in Oudtshoorn. You ca see that he and his wife put a lot of effort in garden and the decoration of the rooms. They are fully equipped with very personal vintage styled accessoires. They love the detail.
The breakfast is excellent, to taste the famous ostrich fillet we didn't hve the time.
Even in the garden every chair has its cushion and you can enjoy the wonderful view on the mountains.
We would have stayed longer if the time schedule would have given us more time.

This B&B was probably the greatest surprise to us during our 3 week South Africa trip. It is a bit outside Oudtshoorn (so you absolutely need a car to get to it) in beautiful surroundings with super views onto the Karoo mountains. It's very well maintained and looked after.
The house/rooms are very shaped by the vintage collections of Elzira, which isn't quite our style and felt crowded in the beginning but became endearing very quickly. Lollies was an absolutely perfect host, friendly and helpful while being completely unobtrusive.
Wish we'd read through reviews about his evening food earlier as it sounds lush, but we went into town instead.
Really would stay there again and next time for longer!!

We stayed for 2 nights on our way through the Garden Route and wish we could have stayed longer. The service, hospitality, and meals were all excellent value for money. Lollies and his wife Elzira are a beautiful couple who both work so hard to make each guests stay as perfect as possible. The personal touch meant so much-home from home! The décor of the rooms is of a high standard and the grounds were beautiful and well maintained by the hardworking staff who were all very friendly. Thank you.

Room Tip: Our party had two separate rooms at opposite ends of the property, both of a high quality both peace...

We changed our booking from another accommodation in the area to here when we were offered a better price. This turned out to be an excellent decision. Although there was a wedding celebration when we arrived and consequently a busy time for the staff we were given a very warm welcome. The rooms are gorgeous... spacious, private and decorated with great detail to feel homely and welcoming. The view is beautiful with lovely gardens to enjoy if from. The food and service is also outstanding - we would recommend to all to have a meal here. Good advice on places to visit. The location made an excellent base to explore Oudtshoorn and the surrounding area. We actually stayed an extra night and if ever returning to the area will be sure to book here again. Thank you Lollies and Elzira.
