Simply perfect! We had a great stay at Jacaranda House and were very happy that we chose The Cottage . We enjoy the flexibility of self catering so its kitchenette, eating area by the pool and use of barbecue/ braai were ideal. But the icing on the cake was the breakfast! We have experienced some excellent ones on our travels...

In the heart of Darling a wonderful place to stay. The breakfast was amazing...everything home made including the croissants. A lovely pool and stoep for evening meal, if you have ordered it, and breakfast.

We chose Jacaranda House to break up our journey from Cape Town to Paternoster after our flight from London. We were not disappointed, in fact, we wish we had stayed a bit longer to explore Darling and the surrounding area. Our room had been the old water storage tank and was circular in shape. An ensuite bathroom was attached and...

Stayed for 2-nights. David & Jane are excellent hosts & Jane is a wonderful cook. The breakfasts are to die for & the supper we enjoyed one evening, a gastronomic delight. The accommodation is comfortable & very well appointed. The only disappointment was the wifi, which is linked to the town system & when we stayed was poor. Overall we...

What a gem of a place with such welcoming hosts. From having sundowners out at the pool and watching the birdlife to the sparkly and luxurious accommodation and the best part was the breakfast! Would must definitely recommend Jacaranda House - oh and by the way... the jacaranda was in full bloom!

We were given a warm welcome on our arrival and offered an upgrade. The room was spotless and nice and cosy. The breakfast offered on Sunday was stunning with varieties of fruit, freshly baked muffins, croissants and the full English which we had to decline. The hosts were really hospitable and we were welcomed into their home. Definitely a place...
