Very nice place to stay, wihen it is warm and sunny weather. When it is cold and rainy the heating is insufficient!! You have to buy wood logs at the Spar for the fireplace. Furthermore it’s a beautiful and quiet and scenic place!! Well equipped self catering suite.

My husband and I had the privilege of staying at Sanddrif Guest Farm for a weekend getaway. I am certainly one to give credit where credit is due, so I would like to share a bit of our experience. From the time we arrived until the time we left, we felt at home. We were welcomed and hosted by the owner, Ben ter Huurne, and his wife, Nicole, who ensured we were comfortable, happy and had everything we needed during of our stay. The cottage we stayed in was modern and immaculately clean and neatclean. The property offers stunning views and the meticulously kept grounds host a tennis court, swimming pool, and the opportunity for leisurely walks. Customer service has unfortunately become somewhat of an optional extra these days, but I can honestly say this was not the case here. You could immediately notice that hospitality is more than just a job for Ben ter Huurne, but a way of life, who he is. Always going the extra mile, even with a personalised note in the cottage, it was the perfect balance of being attentive but unobtrusive. Thank you for hosting us, Ben and Nicole, and for a wonderful, relaxing and unforgettable stay! #ourhomeawayfromhome Best, Jenny and Emil Smith

Loved the venue. The place looks absolutely amazing. The driveway alone as you enter the gates sets the atmosphere for the stay. The room looked beautiful, it's very inviting. Ben thank you for your hospitality.

We stayed only three nights but would have loved staying longer. The rose garden room was large with nice modern furniture and all practical equipment. The samt is true for the bathroom. And in addition a large terrasse/balkony with perfect views. The outdoor pool was also large and perfectly fit in a wonderful garden. But the best were our hosts, Nicole and Ben. Hospitality and kindliness can’t be better. Their breakfast was outstanding! All in all: best B&B ever! We’ll come back !

The personalised service, paired with the beautiful surroundings and well-run Guesthouse made this stay worthy of being repeated in future. The weather didn't play along so we missed out on the pool, but that's neither here nor there. Breakfast was tranquil and delicious. Definitely coming back.

We visited Sanddrif for 12 days in March. Charlotte and Ben were excellent hosts. Always helpfull, discret, humoress, just perfect. Our poolhouse was a hidden treasure, the water in the pool smooth an clear, the breakfast a special moment every moment with a breathtaking view. While gambling at the pool we heard the fisheagles in the sky and saw them flying. Exzellent vineyards are nearby and it´s a 10 min drive to the wonderful citycenter of stellenbosch. All together a perfect place to explore capetown (45 to waterfront) and the winelands. We will be back next year! Thank you, Charlotte and Ben!
