In a quiet street right around the corner of Dorpstraat. Wonderful, special people took care of us. Comfortable rooms with beautiful books! Walking distance to everything in town and everything felt safe (even in the dark winter evenings).

Amazing, quaint, guesthouse in the heart of Stellenbosch. Run by the kindest people, with perfect rooms for any type of stay. In the heart of Stellenbosch; super easy to walk everywhere. As a guesthouse, they give you more than your average place. I'll never stay anywhere else in Stellenbosch.
