Travellers' Choice
Experience hospitality in a unique and authentic (circa 1861) Cape Georgian historical home. Philda is responsible for the running of the Guest House and Desmond is the gardener and plant collector (when not in the garden, still working as a medical doctor) We have a large kitchen garden, a small orchard and keep our own chickens. Do consider staying a few days: George is the hub of golf in the Garden Route with many of South Africa's top courses within a 60km radius. We can organize a guided tour of the garden Route wine route, paragliding, bungee jumping, game drives to Bottelierskop Game Reserve and trips to the Seal Island and/or Shark cage diving in Mossel Bay...

Had a lovely peaceful stay. I enjoyed the breakfast and dining area and the service in general. The garden is immaculate with lots of variety and walking paths. I also felt very safe and enjoyed the host.

I particularly planned by stay at Fairview based on my previous experience. This is a wonderful, authentic and unique experience for those seeking to go beyond the usual "middle of the road" experience

This is a real home away from home establishment. Loved the historicness of the house and the way it has been preserved. Philda has a warm personality and goes to every effort to make your stay comfortable. Beautiful garden and fountain. Safe establishment and environment. Excellent breakfasts.

Word of mouth once again proved to be the true value of a special guesthouse where the smallest detail plays a huge part in the care that the owners take to ensure a warm welcoming stay. Truly above the high expectations we had.

Highly recommended! Philda is a gracious hostess who makes a mean omelette for breakfast! Her home is beautiful and relaxing. Enjoyed our stay and will most certainly return. The gardens surrounding the homestead are a delight.
