I stayed overnight on a business trip on the night of the 12th November 2014. The accommodation was absolutely beautiful - clean; beautifully furnished, lovely breakfast. The views from the home are extraordinary. The bedroom is exquisitely furnished. The house caretaker was very friendly and caring.

Our stay here was delightful. 4 days in Paarl and the accommodation was great. Breakfasts were lovely with wonderful fresh fruit, the owners were very helpful, bed comfortable and pool relaxing. Paarl is a great location to tour the wine routes of South Africa and this accommodation is bang on. This is an area of truly outstanding beauty.
