What an amazing experience and beautiful place. Could properly switch off, enjoy the fire and outdoors, was treated to a plated breakfast in the mornings and warmly welcomed by our own personal butler.

We celebrated my 60th birthday party with family and friends over 2 days at this fantastic venue. We were treated like royalty by the friendly staff and Corne and his team went all out to ensure that our stay was a most memorable one. JP from Lust Bistro provided us with the delicious evening meals. We all give you 5 stars and can’t recommend it highly enough. Many thanks for a wonderful time spent with you.

Hi Roxy, it was really a pleasure to have met you and your whole team! Like I told Wessel, it's a pity you couldn't spend more relaxing time here to soak up the beauty and tranquility, but hopefully next time. Thank you for taking the time to write this review for us!

The Residence was absolutely amazing. Great attention to detail, a tranquil space to relax while being treated like royalty. We were taken care of by a fantastic host, while enjoying superb facilities. By far the best winelands property for a large group. Immaculate living spaces, endless views and pure bliss. Highly recommend a few nights to soak it all up.

Good morning Wessel, thank you so much for taking the time to write this great review for us. But more importantly - Congratulations to you and your colleagues on winning that trip to France in the cooking show!! It's a pity you couldn't spend some more time with us here at The Residence @ Vrede & Lust and soak in all the beauty, but hopefully we get to see you again in the near future. Maybe we can even host a cooking show here one day... Until then..

We stayed at The Residence @ Vrede & Lust for a week as part of a wedding in Mary 2020 (last week pre Covid). The setting is absolutely stunning and it the house offers a great retreat away from the busy crowds, serving wonderful wines.

The house is staffed by a helpful team that takes care of every wish and serves an outstanding breakfast in the morning.

Now that Covid-19 has hit the world I think back at our time there, and remember it as a place that would be perfect to lock up for a week with family and friends, enjoying the amenities without much of a need to venture out.

The nearest town is a bit of a drive away. We enjoyed using the large outdoor BBQ and wonderful internal kitchen, but on our next visit we would consider hiring a cook for our time there.

I highly recommend this place, for a large group of friends. The rooms are huge and spaced far apart. This property is unique because it offers privacy when desired, but with large common areas for the group to convene.

Hi Fabian, it was right before the pandemic changed all of our our lives and now we look at life very differently and have to embrace a new normal. Thank you VERY much for the kind words. It really was a pleasure to host you and your family and friends. You are absolutely right in that our establishment will be very popular with clients once travel restrictions are eased. At The Residence @ Vrede & Lust you are completely private and exclusive. It is only you and your family and/or friends and you don't need to leave. Everything and all amenities are at your fingertips with minimum exposure. I know that you are a very busy man and thank you again for taking the time to write this wonderful review for us. I am looking forward to seeing you again very soon then.
