“Central, But Away From It All”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Thys and O'Nel have created a wonderfully peaceful place to stay with easy access to the coast or to the winelands. We stayed for three nights and our room was comfortable and well-appointed. The food served was of a very high quality and the wild game in a paddock and varied birdlife a bonus. Thys' informative farm tour was a memorable highlight allowing us to pick apples and pears for ourselves. Also special was the birthday cake served up for our son, who really enjoyed feeding the elands every afternoon. This was our most expensive stay during our two weeks around the Western Cape, but well worth it. The warm hospitality of O'Nel & Thys made a great farm stay even more memorable.

Last year we stopped off at Rouxwil on our way back to the airport. When we decided to come back to the Cape we knew we had to spend longer with Thys and O'nel as they had made our brief stay such a pleasure. We weren't disappointed. The breakfasts and dinners were special. Local produce and an excellent variety. Especially good was Thys's braai.We met some really nice fellow guests and thoroughly enjoyed our time with them. We loved the raft trip on the river and once more the dogs were great company. We visited some different places in the area and particularly enjoyed our visit to Greyton on market day. Thank you O'nel for helping us with our airline difficulties!

Our stay at Rouxwil will stay long in the memory. Thys and O'nel were fantastic hosts providing wonderful freshly cooked meals and 'entertainment'! We loved the house party atmosphere and our comfortable Hillside Suite looked out on to majestic views of the surrounding hills and mountains. We hope to be back!

I vowed many years ago that since there are so many wonderful hotels and guest houses to go to in the world, that I would never revisit the same place. So why you ask is this the 4th or 5th time Maggie and I have stayed at Rouxwil?
You know the answer from the other reviews. It is majestic, and has everything you could wish for to make your stay truly memorable.
Read the reviews and believe them. The accomodation is superb, the care and consideration to your every need (that's two wonderful people and their staff making you feel very special) is second to none, and I swear the food gets even better every time we visit. (Is that possible)?
Same place next year? Certainly. We've already organised our visit for 2014.

Our 2nd visit and there is simply no where to match the hospitality and overall experience that O'nel and Thys give their guests.
Everything just superb - our lovely room; views; the fantastic food; the overall feeling of relaxation and peace. Our expectations were exceeded in every area...once again!
Making every tiny detail of such a personal service look so easy takes some seriously good planning and hard work!! Thank you for another fantastic stay.
Loved the raft trip!! Great fun.
See you all soon.

I love this place - its amazing.
So relaxing with fantastic views across the valley.
The rooms are superb with all the extras you need plus extras.
Great hosts - O'nel and Thys know exactly what to do in running a b&b that's why they win the best Farm Stay every year.
Only 20 mins from Hermanus allows you to relax but still enjoy the area.
Evening meals are superb and the breakfasts are amazing.
See you in 2014 hopefully!

Room Tip: All very good
