We stayed at the Garden house for 3 nights in July 2013, and found it was the perfect base from which to explore the area. The accommodation is of a high standard (free drinks much appreciated), and was lovely to have the very well-behaved cats and dog about. Annette and Barry were gracious hosts, they made us feel as though...

What a find this was! Annette and Barry are incredible--extremely helpful, very generous, interesting, good conversationalists. We loved our two days there. The room was a dream room, and the bathroom in particular was so nice that I think I could have been happy sleeping in there! We used the bicycles to wander around Franshoek (in the rain since we...

My girlfriend and I had a delightful 2 days in the company of Annette and Barry in May 2013. There is genuinely nothing negative I can say.

My wife and I stayed with Annette and Barry for a night but it didn't take long to feel right at home. We had a great time chatting with them before dinner, and they were very helpful in helping us choose the right place. Annette even dropped us off as it was little cool that evening. The room we were...

With so many lovely places to stay around Franschhoek and Swellendam, I am so glad I followed my instinct and booked a stay at the Garden House! Annette and Barry have really made their already splendid property into something very special. We stayed in the main house guest room the first night and in the cottage for two nights. Both...
