Stayed here for 3 nights, as the base for various activities around the Franschhoek area. Stunning apartment (apartment 6) with a good sized balcony overlooking the main road, with a fabulous mountain back drop. All mod cons, two bedrooms, two toilets, both with showers and one with a bathroom. There is a pool, not big enough to swim in, but...

We loved the apartment which was beautifully presented and in a great location. The caretaker Wellington was extremely helpful. Off road parking was a bonus. Everything we needed for a short stay and we would definitely return!

Accommodation was excellent, only thing I would suggest that if staying over Bastille Festival ask for an apartment that is at the back as the noise from the restaurant was deafening.. . The staff were brilliant, most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.. Would stay there again

We are pleased you chose us for the perfect mid week escape. Our apartments are large enough to comfortably entertain in and not feel confined to a small hotel room. The perfect home from home. Come back soon! The Ivy Management

We found our stay at the Ivy very enjoyable. The apartment was even better looking than the photos on the website. Everything we needed and wanted to be comfortable was provided for including complimentary chocolates and bubbly.

This apartment is super Modern, with everything you need. Nice and central so walking distance to shops and restaurants, a pity that you cannot use the balcony. Save parking! Early morning there is a bit of noise from the shops in the front, but not too bad!
