Paarl Golf Club offers superb golfing as it is the only 27-hole golf course in the Western Cape, and the first David Frost signature golf course in South Africa. The backdrop to your back-swing is astride the majestic Drakenstein mountain range and Paarl Rock. Add mature trees, artfully conceived water features, and you've got the kind of layout that challenges the pro, rewards the amateur and inspires residents out for a stroll in their 140 hectare back yard. Designer David Frost has created a golf course of true championship standard and at the same time he has achieved a first class golfing experience that will both challenge the low handicap and scratch golfer, yet not be too daunting for the less experienced 'weekender'. Boschenmeer also offers a high-tech golf academy and driving range, as well as a state-of-the-art club house. There is free access to residents tennis courts, children's play area and a large swimming pool shared by the estate for those glorious summers days. The Paarl golf club has a bar, restaurant, hairdresser/beauty therapy and Boschenmeer is surrounded by dozens of Paarl vineyards and only 20 minutes from the Franschhoek and Stellenbosch wine routes.

Excellent stay
It is always a pleasure to stay in the house. The location is perfect with a nice view over holes 11 and 21. The water restriction has not got in the way of a nice holiday. Definitely a recommended home.

Close to perfection
Like every year we try to find peace after the hectic christmas time and the cold winter in Europe and escape to this house.This year the situation was slightly different due to the water restrictions, but honestly speaking with some common sense it was no problem.Very easy to check the water meter and it makes you think how much water we waste back home.Besides a good excuse to use the washing machine not as often, just bring more cloths.The golf course was in excellent condition for the first 5 weeks ,then it did start to get very dry, understandable because they only water the greens and the tees, but they promised to have a plan to deal with it, so we are looking forward to next year already.

If you want to relax..THATS the place
How can it be that you never get tired of watching the birds, the golfers,the sunset and the colors painting the mountains change. It is amazing that you can really relax.Maybe it is Africa or maybe the peace surrounding you.We had beautiful 8 weeks! Recharged our internal batteries. Slept like babies and of course ate too much in the the surrounding wineries and probably had too many sundowners..but what do they say..You only live once. John thanks a million for sharing your house..and YES we will be back!

a comfortable home in a relaxed environment
If you like golf this is a good place to stay. The course looks easy, but isn't. Many opportunities for day trips and a wide choice of excellent restaurants nearby.

"When I get older..losing my hair ...many years from now"....I will be spending 64 'sundowner' days at our place, sipping the wine. Wonderful to hear that you have already booked and will return as a 'swallow' again for 8 weeks in 2016.

Return to our paradise
Again...sounds like a broken record, we had a GREAT time....this time it even got better. The condition of the house was good as it was just painted. Who would have thought that a hot tub is nice in hot weather, but it REALLY is a winner.WiFi worked perfectly... Now back home we can start counting the weeks again till we will be back in "our" paradise. Thanks John and Susan that you let us share your home.

Really happy you continue to enjoy your regular Feb monthly stay and thank you for booking for two months next year! The Jacuzzi hot tub will be a great new addition to our home, complimenting our outdoor pool, especially in the evenings and the less hot months of the year.

A Truly Unforgettable Holiday!
This was my first visit to South Africa and I simply cannot wait to return! The accommodation is located perfectly; just a short drive from the airport and set at the foot of the beautiful Paarl Mountains. We arrived to find a welcome pack of essential food and a bottle of wine which instantly allowed us to relax and begin to enjoy our holiday. The house is clean, spacious and modern with a welcoming African feel to the decor. Plenty of spare bed sheets and towels were available upon arrival and facilities for washing were easily accessible. The wifi was very useful for keeping in touch with family and friends over Christmas and allowed us to easily research the local area a little more. The house is well equipped for the outside lifestyle desired in the hot months. The pool is extremely well kept and the terrace provides plenty of seating for sunbathing and eating. Highlights of the accommodation have to be cooking on the braii, watching the sunset over the mountains and spending the evenings relaxing in the hot tub! The house is located just a short drive from the local mall and plenty of restaurants including wine tasting. The guide book created by John and Susan allowed a great overview of the local area and I fully recommend a wine tasting tour and lunch at Fairview. I was surprised how easy it was to drive into Cape Town and we spent a few days exploring Llandudno beach and Camps Bay. I recommend the trip up to the top of Table Mountain and (for the thrill seekers) Paragliding from Lion's Head to fully take in the mountainous scenery! The accommodation provides a welcoming, homely feel and I strongly recommend anyone to stay here who is looking for the perfect balance of relaxing and exploring South Africa. A huge thank you to John and Susan for allowing me to experience their beautiful home.

We are glad you enjoyed our family home on Boschenmeer with your extended family over Christmas/New Year. Hopefully, you will return regularly in the future to experience the Western Cape, which is arguably the most pristine & pretty places on our planet?
