We booked the residence to celebrate within our fully vaccinated Covid pod a friends birthday for a week. The house is beautiful, well appointed and comfortable. The views are pristine and the service from the team was excellent. We were well taken care by everyone and enjoyed a memorable and fun week in complete luxury. From the multi-course breakfasts to the constant supply of lovely Pinot noir and champagne from the estate we managed to escape the realities of the outside world and enjoy a wonderful time. Will definitely return in the summer. A huge heartfelt thank you to Corne and his entire team.

Hi Gravette, I know that you are a busy woman and I highly appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to write this beautiful review for us. It was a great pleasure to have met and host all of you and you absolutely have to be back in the summer!! The Cape Winelands is breathtaking in the summer. hopefully by then all the Covid restrictions will also be lifted and that the tourism can be back to some kind of normal. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and although it was in winter and you were stuck inside. I look forward to welcoming you again soon!!

Spacious and luxurious accommodation with world class views on all sides. It’s very quiet and peaceful yet close to Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. The house is well equipped for self catering as well as catered. The many fireplaces and the external fire pit make the house cosy. Corne and team are hospitable and make a huge effort. And the breakfasts are world class.

Room tip: Make time to spend at the house as it’s very relaxing

The perfect destination for a group of good friends to connect. Wonderful comfortable accommodation in a fabulous location. Well equipped. We loved evenings around the fire-pit, dinners next to a roaring fire and beautiful walks in the vinyards and mountains on our doorstep. Thanks to Corné and team for your 5 star hosting.

This was absolutely next level amazing. Corne is superb at multi tasking...from organising our bookings, setting up breakfast and just the co-ordination of the staff and hospitality. The pictures on the internet do no justice to the haven we were living in. This is the absolute dream destination.

Hi Qzhay, it's been a while since we've had a review. It has been such a pleasure to have hosted you and the PSG group. I really enjoyed how you utilized the TV leisure room as a board room and I think it worked perfectly...
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your very busy schedule to write this great review for us. I am very happy that you enjoyed it and it was a great pleasure to help liaise and organize your schedule.
Like we said, hopefully this is an annual event and later on a quarterly one..
Until next time!

This is a great place to stay, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Spotlessly clean, in a very quiet and peaceful location with mountain views, vineyard and farming activities in the surrounds. Lovely walking and running paths if this is your thing. The interiors and exteriors are built with love and perfect taste showing off some features of our heritage in South Africa. The staff are friendly with the warmest of hospitality. The breakfast was impeccable. This may have been the first time we stayed here, it certainly won't be the last!

Good morning Janette, it has been such a privilege to have hosted Reghardt's birthday here at The Residence and to have been part of the celebrations. We have known each other for a while and that made it so special to be able to host his special day with all of his friends and family. Thank you for writing this beautiful review for us and I am very happy to hear that you also have enjoyed your stay with us. It really was a pleasure to have met you and hopefully we'll see you again soon..
