We travelled the Garden Route from Capetown to Addo and stayed with Charlotte and Ben for the last three days of our trip. As this was the back leg of our journey, we were looking for a relaxed accommodation in the Stellenbosch region and the Sandriff Guest Farm was the perfect choice. All the vineyards are easily accessible by car, yet the estate itself is very quiet and comfortably secluded. Everything was very clean and trimmed but still did not lack a personal note and charm. Charlotte and Ben are excellent hosts, gave us great recommendations and took care of our every need. We can fully recommend this place and will be back soon ourselves!
Excellent location close to wine estates, and less than 10 minutes drive to Stellenbosch CBD. Pretty views, beautiful and green. Prime security. We stayed in a very comfortable unit, 10 metres to the vineyard. Superb beds and bathroom, effective and quiet aircon, nice DSTV although too much to do in the vicinity to devote much time to TV. The hearty breakfasts were really good: tasty, colourful, great attention to detail by hosts Ben and Charlotte. The large swimming pool is a real asset that we used and enjoyed a lot. Well done!
While looking for a last minute stay in Stellenbosch for one night last Friday, I called up Charlotte at Sanddrif based on listed reviews. Well what a disaster! First she told me quite emphatically they were full. When I mentioned that some of the booking sites showed availability, she hesitated. She then told me she had looked in her book and they actually only had one booking, but didn't usually take bookings for a one night stay. In this instance however, if I paid cash to make it worth her while, she would accommodate us. I was told to look at the website and decide which room we wanted and email her on the email address listed and she would confirm. Well I emailed her on the Wednesday and heard nothing back. I emailed her again on the Thursday and again received…
At Sanddrif you wont even find a detail to be criticized. Everything is just perfect. Already while driving up the alley from the entrance to the main building you can feel the owner's dedication. Every spot on the estate is perfectly maintained. We have been living in all six rooms so far, all of them are little paradises, with the riversuites on top. It is really hard to beat the hospitality of Charlotte and Ben. As long as they will be there we will come back. Thanks for your friendship. Thomas and Franziska
We stayed in one of the self catering cottages and it was excellent although we didn't use the facilities. The accommodation was very modern and clean. We had breakfast prepared by Charlotte who is a lovely lady with lots of local knowledge. There are some very nice wineries located within less than 15 minutes drive. Would stay again rather than in town.
