I am a "local" and therefore do not frequent guest houses in the winelands frequently. But my wife and I spent a night in this guest house on our honeymoon. What a pleasure. The rooms are private, clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. The guest house is peaceful: there are not many other guests, making the breakfast table feel almost private...

Lovely, modern and clean guesthouse. Excellent breakfast eaten on the patio. Owner was very helpful. Close to the towns main road but far away enough to not be noisy. Very tranquil. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely building. The rooms are large and very nicely decorated in a modern style. They included amenities such as pool towels and robes which was a very nice touch. I was in an upstairs room which had a lovely view of the mountains and was very quiet. There is a pool which is great for relaxing by. Everything was very...
