We are a 40ha eco-friendly fynbos farm, situated outside the village of Stanford, Western Cape, South Africa. With only 2 guest rooms, a max. of 4 guests at any time can enjoy this subliminal spot overlooking the valley towards the Atlantic Ocean and Hermanus. We curated the house in such a way showcasing our journeys we had over the years in iconic once-off designer pieces and art collected, spanning over 40 years. HaesFarm has been design to cater for more the adult in mind. A space surrounded by nature to nurture, to re-connect and just be. Where we count the moments not the hours.

We together with our friends, stayed at HaesFarm for a couple of days.
(This farm is not suitable for families with young children).

Each room has it's own seperate verandah to sit quietly and daydream,
watch the birdlife, read your book. Very comfortable bed and lovely
linen. Your own Nespresso coffee machine.

What a delight our time on Haesfarm was. Wonderful views, excellent
accommodation. An indoor lounge with many books to read. A beautiful
verandah to sit and admire the view with an ice cold glass of wine, or a good
cuppa.

Harry and Steyn's food and hospitality were first class. An absolute treat to
all of our senses.

Haesfarm is a great place to chill.
Lots of bird life and walks, wine farms and restaurants in and around Stanford to visit.

Treat yourself!

This was our second visit to the Haes Farm and most certainly not our last. Harry and Steyn are exceptional hosts ! Not only do they treat each guest to a delicious breakfast but they also give you the option to have dinner at the farm. Haute cuisine dining with a view is something one is not likely to forget. Harry and Steyn go to great lengths to help clients in every single way. Their knowledge of the neighbourhood is extensive and they love sharing their passion for this beautiful place on earth.

We stayed with Harry and Steyn for 3 nights in Jan 22. We did expect the beautiful nature and what the surrounding area had to offer. What we certainly did not expect was that we were literally pampered the entire time. Harry is nothing short of a Michelin level chef and the food he made for us was incredible. The setting and accommodation are fantastic too with the perfect combination of privacy, nature, views of the valley and tranquility. We would highly recommend HaesFarm to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway filled with fantastic food, great wines and nature.

We spent two nights with Harry & Steyn at their amazing spot. They are superb hosts and treated us like long lost friends. We sat on the verandah and drank wine , ate cheese and biscuits with them and chatted away watching the sun go down.
Breakfasts were sumptuous affairs with wonderful home made breads and marmalades amongst the offerings.
Our room was extremely comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and can highly recommend them to any one wanting superb acomodation in the Stanford area

What an exceptional experience to stay at HAES FARM. From you moment you arrive until the last minute -you feel totally comfortable, relaxed and ultimately spoiled. We've been on a road trip to a few places in Cape Town, but we have decided that this was the best of them all. The hospitality is superior!

Harry and Steyn were charming hosts at this peaceful retreat offering stunning views over the quaint town of Stanford and surrounding coastline. We were treated to some wonderful cooking using locally sourced ingredients. - the 3 course breakfast will certainly set you up for the day! We would also recommend you have dinner at the farm. The two bedrooms are well appointed with large, comfortable super king beds. The indoor and outdoor communal areas are well furnished, comfortable and spacious. Our only complaint was that we couldn’t take gorgeous Lenny the dog with us. We would highly recommend staying in this unique peaceful haven.

If you enjoy peace and quiet in a stylish house with a stunning view this is the perfect place to stay. Make sure you book dinner 24 hours ahead, Harry’s cooking and Steyn’s desserts are not to be missed!

And take a walk through the beautiful fynbos where you will see thousands of proteas in full bloom.

You will get a delicious breakfast at whatever time you choose and when relaxing after a day out will find yourself surrounded by an amazing collection of books, art and iconic furniture.

Steyn and Harry are wonderful hosts.

We had an absolute divine weekend away. Haes farm has two guest rooms only, which was perfect for our double couple get away. The views from the accommodation are spectacular, which can also be taken in from the outdoor shower, which is an absolute vibe. The attention to detail exercised by Harry and Steyn is on another level. They make a wonderful team, with a passion for hosting and food, which they source from their local surrounds. We definitely recommend this stay and will be coming back ourselves <3

We were on our way down the coast and decided to stop here for 2 nights as a surprise.

From when we arrived Harry & Steyn were amazing hosts, making sure they could do anything to help us enjoy our stay!

The location is amazing, with views for days and is very private.
Definitely recommend eating dinner on the farm, H&S are amazing chefs who kept our bellies happy with tasty meals!

Definitely recommend going here and experiencing the tranquility.

Thank you H & S!
