We had a wonderful stay at Caledon Villa. It is centrally located, yet peaceful. Wonderful amenities with personal touches and friendly, hospitable staff. The guesthouse is run by the owner, which adds an extra level of hospitality and personality. Highly recommend!

Truly outstanding service, very comfortable air conditioned rooms and excellent breakfast. Amongst many other kindnesses, they let us stay by the pool the whole afternoon waiting for the transfer to the airport (BEWARE : lots of roadworks and very long waits at the moment, we almost missed our flight) and even to have a shower (summer there is very hot) before leaving. You feel you are welcomed into a private home, with lots of family history memorabilia and explanations around. Stellenbosch is a bigger town (but not by too much) than Franschhoek so there is much more to see, including a lot of picturesque old buildings.

The Villa is very well situated to explore Stellenbosch being only a few minutes walk from the town centre and University yet on a quiet residential street. The two houses which comprise Caledon Villa are beautiful turn-of-the-last-century buildings immaculately maintained. The gardens are equally lovely, quiet with a good sized swimming pool and sunbeds. The rooms are full of character and have a well-stocked mini-bar at ridiculously low prices! Breakfast offers a good hot or cold selection to suit most tastes. Staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. Beyond being a great guest house the Villa offers a fascinating insight into the Krige family in South Africa in the context of more than two hundred years of history covering the Great Trek and the Boer War. Highly recommended.
