Interaction with guests
We enjoy interacting with our guests (Desmond is at the helm of the garden and Philda runs the guest house.) Fairview Homestead is a 5 bedroom guest house in B&B style - that means we, the owners, live on the premises. We are led by our guest regarding interaction.

A very homely, comfortable and characterful place to stay. We spent 4 nights whilst touring the neighboring areas on the Garden Route and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Philda is a great hostess! She looked after us well and also recommended some great restaurants for us...More

About the neighborhood
Our property was first registered in 1861 and the suburb of Bergsig developed out of it. We are so thankful that the grounds remained large enough to allow the house a garden it deserves. We bought Fairview in 1994 -the restoration and upkeep has been an ongoing labour of love. We are walking distance to Outeniqua High School and a short 5 to 10 minute drive to the Garden Route Mall,restaurants and hospitals.I always recommend a trip to the Railway museum (less than 2km from us) where there is an interesting display of privately owned vintage vehicles as well as a railway collection. George has a proud forestry/timber history and I strongly recommend a trip to our museum to see the Timber Exhibition hall.
Getting around
A car is advisable. Our guests often make use of a local taxi service to take them to restaurants in the evening (most restaurants are within 6 km from our property)
