Mountain-facing manor house with 10 luxurious rooms, provides the ultimate South African Wineland's experience. Situated on a working wine farm, the guest house in neatly hidden in the middle of a Shiraz vineyards. Weather permitting, breakfast is served on the terrace overlooking the Drakenstein Mountains. With African hardwood decor and majestic views, it creates a tapestry of imaginative tales of the past, intertwined with an understanding of the 360 year heritage of the area, aptly named “the Pearl”. The estate is only minutes away from the historical town of Paarl and is surrounded by a truly incredible choice of mountain hikes, cycle tracks, historical monuments, museums, golf estates, art studios and world-renowned wine estates which can be discussed with our guests and advice given to perfect their holiday.

Suite , 2 beds, adjoining main house, nice property.
Highly recommended for a short stay, little kitchenette with basic breakfast supplies of muesli , milk and yogurt, no bread though. Good value for money and pretty private.
No TV and no Internet disappointing

Wow, these people are excellent hosts. Caring, compassionate & professional, all in one.
Beautiful views and spacious, well appointed rooms.
We asked about dinner and were disapointed that they only offered breakfast & lunch, but then amazingly they offered to keep the kitchen open to accommodate us. A lovely dinner and overall excellent experience. We will definitely be back fro a longer stay.

The pool area was a delight, as was sitting on the patio watching the sunset against the mountains - drink in hand. Room had everything we could need. Bed was incredibly comfortable and shower was excellent.

We stayed in the basic room and it was lovely. The only thing to be aware of is that there is no room partition wall between the bathroom area and the main room. This might not be good for those not expecting to be in each others private space.

I don‘t know what we loved most, the location, the host, her assistant the breakfast...everything was so perfect, it was just hard to leave, but after finishing the Little Karoo and the Garden Route we think of doing a detour on our way back to Capetown, since we are sure, thi, our first stay this year cannot be topped. 10+ in every respect. Thanks a million ladies.👍

The service is excellent and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. I chose this guesthouse as my get-ready location for my wedding and the staff were nothing but wonderful and accommodating to me. The food is delicious, vineyard views are amazing and the rooms are very comfortable and well kept.

Arrived at Nwanedi and was welcomed by Gerrie who went out of his way to assist. Beautiful room, spacious with excellent finishes. Most comfortable beds!,

Supper was excellent with wine recommendations from Gerrie.
Chef came to the dining area to explain the dish that was served, excellent!, one does not find that happening too often !!

Had a lovely breakfast the following morning with owner Jean in attendance greeting all the guests.

Beautiful views over the Paarl valley!

Pity we only stayed one night, will make we stay longer next time.
Thanks very much Gavin and Jean, really enjoyed our stay!!

The location and the house are absolutely nice - so are the rooms. But that’s it for the positive things to mention.
After 7pm nobody is around as the staff does not live in the house - so if you would like to have a wine after your dinner in town (they do not offer food on their premises) there is just no way to get anything. Although their website tells you about fine dining and wine-tasting - well, they do not have a restaurant. Breakfast is below average what we got in our 3-weeks in South Africa. First of all we were not even greeted in the morning. First sentence was ‘toast or cereals’. We then asked whether it’s possible to have breakfast outside as it was a beautiful morning. Instead of ‘yes, sure’ the answer was ‘It’s windy’ (which was not true), so we insisted to have breakfast outside and they did it with very little enthusiasm. You have to ask for everything as the staff does not really care. So if there is no juice they wait until someone asks until they bring new one. They have no idea what kind of jam they serve (‘you have to try’). Overall, we did not feel very welcomed and would not recommend this place. There are a lot of accommodations in this beautiful area – Nwanedi has to improve if they want to be what they think they are.

We were at the resort for the weekend and we had an exceptional stay. The owners and the stuff were amazing and very informative. It's about a 10min drive to the Paarl town centre and other wine farms.

Semi-professional service, very personal contact with the owners and staff, enjoy the charm of everything not been quite perfect, this is the place to go!

Surrounded by vineyards, a with a view right on to the mountains, quite and peacefully, a great place for anyone wanting to escape every days busy life! Not far from famous wineries an ideal starting point!

Some small things of improvement though would make this place a real gem:
- Mosquito net for the bed!
- Stocked bar in the room (especially as the bar closed down very early)!
- And the carpet been better cleaned (stains!)

We must count ourselves very lucky! We were supposed to be booked in somewhere else! This was my first trip to SA (on business) and was with local colleagues. We all agreed what a marvellous place and that the guys will be booking again.

You need a great host(s) and Gavin and family are great. You need great food and you will not be disappointed as Chef delivers time and again and it's clear that he takes great care and pleasure with what he serves you.

Wines are delicious and although I'm no expert I really enjoyed the suggestions to go with dinner. Especially enjoyable was the rose for me, especially as an easy drinking enjoyable wine which matched the location and I think seeing Gavin sat on the porch, with the wonderful views behind him, rose in hand, will stay with me for a ling time - pure relaxation!

Rooms are large, all things on hand, sleepy and comfortable beds.

We generally left quite early and we're back quite late, but after the first night we were always looking forward to return. A couple of 'cleansing ales' followed by a wonderful dinner with wine in stunning surroundings and a good nights sleep.
Thank you!
