My wife Nancy and I visited here in May 2014. It is a place to stay more than one night. It starts by an warm greeting from the host who is resides here with her husband. They are not, however, the owners. We were greeted with scones and cappuccinos, but tea would have been standard if desired. As the name indicates, this community reflects the Dutch period of colonization. The breakfast had three courses with eggs cooked to order and a nice selection of fruit and pastries. It is a leisurely experience that should not be rushed. Our room was one of several units attached to the main house. They provided turn down service with hot water bottles in the bed to keep your feet warm. It was a bit chilly late in May there. It is considered a safe area and we walked a few blocks to an excellent dinner establishment without feeling the need to take a cab. This was a rarity in South Africa. This was simply a wonderful experience and is worth paying a bit more than the typical B&B in South Africa along the Garden Route.
