This place advertizes a 4* rating however it should be 2* at the best. We lived on a building site for 2 weeks without prior warning. We were demanded to pay for our stay on arrival! They forgot that we had already paid 6 month in advance and they cashed the interest!!! The braai and the stove were so rusted and derty that we did not dare to use either of them. Room cleaning took place once a week. Towels were promised to be changed every 3 day but were only changed after 1 week. If you can stay weay from this "guesthouse" The 4* rating is 10 years old and has probaly not been rerated since. The table on the stoep was so dirty the we could clean it!!! However fancy and partly broken artwork all over

We stayed here for 8 nights during a big family celebration. We couldn't have chosen a better spot. Walked to 2 wine estate tasting rooms, a world class wine shop also walking distance. 3 restaurants that we could walk to and then direct access to Hemel en Aarde Valley and close to a large mall and Sandbaai and surrounding beaches. The apartment was homely and spacious and well equipped and nothing asked was too much trouble for John. Our laundery washed and ironed neatly and returned on time at a fraction of expected cost. We will most definitely be back for more. Thank John!!

We really loved this place. It gave us the feeling of being at a Game Lodge. The top flat is spacious and well-decorated. Would highly recommend. Lovely coffee shop right next door and wine farms down the road.

We had a short but very enjoyable stay here. The host is super helpful and friendly. Loadshedding caused some issues with getting our car in the gates, but very kindly gave us the main entrance's key. Lovely apartment with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding luxurious. Highly recommended

We only stayed one night but the place is so spacious, has everything we you might need if you wanted to stay longer and self cater. Location is great for Hemel and Aarde wine router and wine village restaurants. The decor and the artwork is also fun to look at.

It's just like the photos! Comfortable bed, lovely linen and all you might need for a weekend getaway for 2. We didn't use the braai area, but it's a nice area. Great location, close to Hemel en Aarde wine estates. Very reasonable price as well.
