Ester provided good insights and was valuable as a speaker on that day. It was added value to our presentation to have an expert like her at our disposal.

Our weekend at Onze Rust was absolutely magical. We had a room with fantastic views of the dam and the most comfortable kings size bed you have ever slept on. The owner was charming and extremely accomodating without impinging on our space.

The bird life on the property is extensive and we spent a lovely Saturday afternoon under the willows at the dam just taking in the incredible atmosphere. This property is situated right in the middle of the Stellenbosch wine farms which makes it rather unique. it boasts an absolutely stunning garden with rolling lawns and prolific plants life. There is a very special light on this property which gives it an almost magical atmosphere.

Onze Rust on first view provides one of the secrets of the Western Cape. Just outside of Stellenbosch and with easy access to the town itself, this hideaway is the ideal venue for the stressed business traveler or romantic weekend. With the offer of wine tasting and gourmet food at your doorstep the guesthouse could not be better situated. To awake in the middle of an environmental oasis to the sound of the fish eagle or just sit at the dam observing the weavers at work is all that is needed to put one’s mind at ease.

Breakfast is unsurpassed in both quality and quantity and can be enjoyed overlooking the dam from the balcony of the Country house. A night spent in the eighteenth century Victorian house is a night that will never be forgotten, with period furnishings and a feel to match. The warmth and combined local knowledge of the owner Ester Bezuidenhout is unmatchable and consistent with true Cape hospitality. All in all I would recommend a stay at Onze Rust as an absolute priority whether staying in the Winelands or the Western Cape in general.
