My husband and I tried to book a stay at Sunny Lane in December two years ago, but the establishment was fully booked at the time. We're so glad we booked early enough this time round, as Sunny Lane really was the ideal place to stay in Franschhoek.
We chose the smaller of the two apartments because we knew we'd spend most of our time out and about, but it was actually perfect for a couple. The space is small, but because it's been well laid out, it doesn't feel cramped. The large patio space and French doors that open out from the apartment also make the space feel bigger.
The furnishings are tasteful and the kitchenette had everything we needed (from a toaster to wine glasses, and even citronella candles for keeping the mosquitoes away). The room also had an ironing board and iron, as well as select DSTV channels on the TV and a standing fan. Barbara had kindly supplied a file with information on Franschhoek, as well as brochures on attractions in the area.
We had access to the lovely swimming pool (such a bonus in the hot weather!) and enjoyed the company of the most charming black and white cat, Popcorn.
Barbara was friendly and helpful, but was also careful to give all her guests plenty of privacy and space (there was a family occupying the larger apartment while we were there too).
Sunny Lane is within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in town, and we'd really recommend it for anyone looking to stay in Franschhoek. Clean, great value for money and very pretty too.
