If you are looking for a relaxing and comfortable stay, within 100 miles of Cape Town and the airport, Rouxwill Country House is the place. It is a well managed working farm of over 2000 acres with sheep being raised and crops like wheat and canola being grown. They also have their own herd of magnificent Eland and graceful Springboks...

After getting our six monthly fix at Rouxwil, which is mandatory whenever we visit the Cape, we were fortunate enough to then stay at one of Rouxwil's beach cottages. Firstly our trip to the farm was delightful as ever, great food, good company and fantastic surroundings! As soon as we arrived at the beach cottage on Hermanus we were totally...

Rouxwil has only good reviews, and having stayed there, can only but understand why! Beautiful location which feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, but found out there is plenty to do within half an hour or so. The owners Thys and O Nell make this stay particularly memorable. O Nell is a wealth of knowledge on where to...

Everything about Rouxwil Country House was just perfect. The rooms were huge and had wonderful views over the farm. The attention to detail was so much appreciated. The small things like rusks with your coffee, fresh milk and such a wide choice of toiletries and health products made the stay luxurious. Rouxwil does not offer meals. They offer a culinary...

We have for many years stayed at this lovely guest house at the great farm and run by onell and thys to such a high standard. We love the modern suites and bathrooms with such spectacular views to the mountains. We are always made so welcome and really enjoy the interesting fellow guests from so many different companies. The highlight...

Rouxwil came highly recommended by a friend we met on a previous visit to SA. We weren't disappointed! O'nel and Thys make you feel "at home" from the start. We spent four nights in the suite by the pool.The suite was spotless, spacious and comfortable - beautifully decorated and with great views of the mountains from the stoep. We loved...

A holiday to South Africa has to include a stay at Rouxwil, whether that's on my own or with friends. This really is my second home, as soon as I turn into the farm drive, I know what a wonderful experience is awaiting me! On the last trip we invited friends to stay with us for one night. And we...

This was our 4th visit to Rouxwil and it is better than ever. The rooms are wonderfully decorative and very spacious. The views over the farmland and into the valleys is lovely and being a fully working farm there is always something to see. The hosts O'Nell and Thys are lovely people, very kind and helpful and the food is...

No trip to the Cape is complete without a stay at Rouxwil Country House. This is second time here this year, having stayed in March. Back then we watched while some of the farm's 3000 sheep were sheared and incredibly this time I got to go in the cab of Thys's Combine Harvester whilst the last of the wheat harvest...

All the good things from the other reviews are true. Thys and O'nel are truly some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The guesthouse is based on a working farm, with beautiful scenery on the farm and in the area. If you are a tourist in the region, I would recommend rather staying here than in Franschoek, as...
