An attractive Dutch Cape style property with large garden, small pool with sun loungers in a quiet location. Wilma and Desmond were the perfect hosts being friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble in making our stay pleasurable. Because we were late arriving on our first night, a reservation had been made at The Powell House restaurant, a short walk away, an excellent recommendation. The Pharao suite is decorated and furnished in keeping with the age of the property. The room is spacious and the bathroom large comprising free standing slipper bath as well as a large separate shower. Own large terrace and shared lounge. Breakfast was delightful, Wilma used locally sourced fair where possible and Desmond gave his personal touches to the cooked breakfasts. You will be made very welcome here and we highly recommend it.
