“There's a shower on my stoep!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Arriving in Montagu, on a very hot summers day, and after tasting copious amounts of wine at a nearby wine farm, it was such a pleasure meeting our hosts at the Vinyard Country house. Parking at the guesthouse is located in the Apricot Orchard. Our room on the side of the main house, overlooked the vineyard. The swimming pool is located in the vineyard, with a beatiful view of the surrounding area and the house. And to our great suprise, an outside shower on our stoep under the grape pegoda. What a liberation experience with the town folk passing by and not even noticing you having a shower!

Thanks to Lauren and Louise for a wonderful stay and the best breakfast made "with love" and amazing attention to detail! We will definately be back and will highly recommend this to all.

Don't miss out on staying here if you plan a night or 2 in Montagu. Idyllic setting on a vineyard, great location and the best part....outdoor shower!! (don't worry if the drivers on the road give you a beep!)

Lovely breakfast served by a wonderful Host. Would stay here again without question. Number 1 in Montagu!!

We found this gem on the internet and regret we only booked one night at the Vineyard. It was our first time travelling through South Africa. We covered over 7000km of this beautiful country and must admit that the Vineyard was one of our most memorable stay. My husband, my 10 year old son and 2 friends found the place easily as we entered into Montagu. The property is lovely with the vineyard, apricot trees, flowering wisteria and the view of the mountains right outside of our rooms.The rooms are cozy and well appointed with all necessities, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean and bright. We had a wonderful dinner at the Mystic Tin as recommended by our host and felt safe walking along the road. In the morining, our son was up early playing with Basil, the energetic and friendly PUG. We found our son seated in the kitchen enjoying crispy corn fritters and feeling right at home chatting with our hosts Lauren and Louise. The full course breakfast was amazing with individual fresh bread baked in clay pots, delicious banana loaf, fruit salad with yogurt, bacon, eggs, corn fritters ...what a feast!

Thanks to Louise and Lauren for making our stay memorable and for making our son feel welcomed and special. I attached some photos of our stay and the wonde breakfast..

We only stayed one night at the Vineyard but it was definetely one of the best stayovers during our trip through South Africa!
The property, ideally located in the middle of the vines and nature, though right in the center of Montagu, is absolutely charming, as well as Laura and Louise. Swimming pool, outside shower (incredible experience!) and superb breakfast, every detail made our stay a memorable one.
Would recommend for sure and we'll be back!

Myself and my partner stayed at the vineyard for 2 nights and if we could would have stayed longer. The warm home away from home feeling we both received was very special. The pool is a star attraction which is situated in the vineyards with a breath taking view........ and best of all is being able to fall into a bed made up of fresh crisp white linen after having an out side shower :) the rooms are beautifully decorated and have a unique touch. The breakfast is made up of fresh home baked goods and you leave your stay feeling well looked after and well fed. Thank you so much for the time we spent there - we will be back soon.... And for longer. Steph and Graeme

Well located in the centre of the small town of Montagu, this 4 bedroomed guesthouse is run by its two owners. Loren and Louise look after guests as if they were personal friends; the rooms are of a high standard as is the breakfast (home made breads and muesli etc).

Much nicer than staying in a four star hotel! Thoroughly recommended.
