“Another great stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Thanks Heather and John for another great stay at Mana!! Breakfasts once again superb and sitting around the pool in your beautiful garden - most relaxing!! Early morning walks were most enjoyable in such picturesque surroundings. A great location with a short drive to so many wineries and town just ten minutes drive away - what more could you ask for? We will be back to enjoy your great hospitality.
Jimmy, Karen & Kim

The plus points here are spacious stylish rooms, a very beautiful peaceful garden with fantastic views, a great pool, excellent breakfasts and great hosts.
The minus points are it's remote so you have to drive a long way to eat and if you are in one of the cottages on the edge of the property you might feel a bit isolated.

Room Tip: Note the comment about the isolation of the cottages on the edge of the property.

Dear Heather & John, thank you for a lovely stay at your fantastic place, not only is the rooms absolutely fantastic ( Merlot & Pinotage) with space plenty and a beautiful decor.
If that was not enough the garden - the pool and the stunning views was breathtaking, and to finish it all off every morning for the 3 mornings we were with you we got fantastic well-prepared breakfast, hope to come back.
Love from Else - Aase - Kjeld and Finn

Room Tip: go and see for yourselves, fantastic!!!!!

I cannot improve on all the comments made by other guests.
The location, service and friendliness of the owners Heather & Jon made our stay a joy and Mana will definitely be on our list of places to stay when we return to South Africa.

Room Tip: We stayed in Shiraz and would recommend it, large, plenty of space and an enormous wet room with dou...

We spent 5 nights here with our 4 teenage sons. Perfect location, accomodation, views and service resulting in a happy family. Its not often you can achieve that, but Heather and John did so with ease. Other residents were regulars and adopted the same relaxed approach. Accomodation is luxurious and food delicious. It's hard to let this cat out of the bag!

I you want to relax and be comfortable Mana is the place to be. We had a studio room which was spacious with a hall entrance and a large bathroom with superb views over the country side. Our hosts could not have been more helpful and, as other reviewers have commented, the breakfast is just superb.
The location is a little way out of Stellenbosch but the drive in is easy (once you get the hang of it). The town is really pleasant with plenty of shops and restaurants and a gentle atmosphere.and nice people. Apart from Stellenbosch many beaches, Cape Town and other places of interest are within easy driving and, of course, the vineyards are very available.
If you are thinking of a holiday in the region then Mana is the ideal

Room Tip: All the rooms looked good

One word, three syllables - fab-u-lous. Stay number three at this beautiful luxury retreat hidden in the midst of undulating vineyard views in the heart of wine country. I think this may be South Africa's best kept secret for anyone of taste - wanting somewhere truly special to stay when visiting the Cape. Position and views that'll knock your socks off (tick); Huge rooms decorated and furnished with exceptional taste, plus fridge plus generous tea tray (tick); massive bathrooms with showers big enough for two (and a stand-alone roll-top bath-a-dieu if you stay in Pinotage) all complete with thick towels, bath robes and Molten Brown products (tick); private swimming pool with stunning views, shade and big comfy sunbeds (tick); breakfast cooked by amazing chef/co-owner (Jon) who is UK trained, globally influenced and uses many ingredients he's grown himself (tick); other co-owner (Heather - and also a chef) knows everything you'll ever need to know about the best places to eat, drink/taste wine, visit, shop (tick); I can't wait for trip number four.

Room Tip: If you want something romantic - go for Pinotage. If you are there for a while and would like even...
