“Most Welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

We enjoyed four very comfortable nights stay with Kerstin and Rene. Breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the Jonkscher valley, perfected by the skill of 'The Egg Manager.
Kerstin even managed to sort out our parking ticket!! Hows that for service?

We stayed at Keren's vine for 7 nights at the beginning of February 2013. The house is situated in quiet part at the border of Stellenbosch near the woods and the valley.
It has 5 rooms, a wonderful view in the Jonkscher valle and the mountains. Kerstin and Rene are the hosts, a couple from Germany, very nice, they help you finding your places and activities around Stellenbosch and it is always nice to have a chat with them.
We will go back there!

Keren's Vine is an excellent guesthouse. You will find your hosts Kerstin and Rene to be very friendly and accommodating. They will have all information on all activities in the area and are sure to book you into any restaurant you could want.
The decor of the guesthouse is contemporary African style. Rooms are equipped with aircon and our room (Winelands) has a private access to the garden. Wifi signal in this room is weaker due to construction so if you are really desperate for it, you may want to consider one of the other rooms, which are most likely as good as this more secluded room in the lower level.
The guesthouse is located in a safe residential area and offers secure off street parking. the infinity pool is compact but very clean and attractive. Breakfast is served on the deck and is of excellent quality. The views of the mountains are most charming.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in January as part of our honeymoon. The guesthouse is beautiful with fantastic mountain views. Keren is extremely helpful in recommending restaurants and organising wine trips. Free wifi is included in he stay. The room was a little bit small but had amazing views from the balcony. Guesthouse is located out of walking distance from town so a car is recommended.

We stayed 2 nights at Keren's vine and our room was "Twin Peaks" (all rooms have the names of surrounding mountains and each is different), nice design, very tastefully decorated and furnished (dark wood) with a balcony and a view of the mountain, the garden and the pool. The bathroom was beautiful too, and we liked the rooibos toiletries. Everything is very modern, new and clean (you can tell the owners are German! :-) )
Breakfast was good and plentiful. The place is quiet, but to get to the city center you do need a car.
The hosts give excellent advice on where to go for lunch, dinner and wine tasting.
The prices for the drinks (you take them yourself in the living room and they trust you to write down what you consume) were cheap, which was a nice surprise. All in all, a great experience, and a nice place from which to explore the wine country.

Karen's vine is a fantastic place to stay. The owners are very nice and know what to to in and around Stellenbosch. The provide a lot of information and tell you where the best places around are.
The rooms are very nice and the pool area great to relax!

We had a room with a garden, and a shower under the stars. Romantic, fun, and a great place to have a sip of local vino. Kristen and Rene were wonderfully accommodating, and breakfasts were so hearty fulfilling and abundant. My only complaint was that it was a far ways to walk when we wanted a night on the town and taxis are hard to come by.
