I booked my room 2.5 months in advance. They deducted the deposit the same day. I arrived to find that my room looked nothing like the photo's they use for marketing.

Colourful Manor is a wonderful mix of modern colors and a homy style. We specially liked the self catering cottage with two separate bedrooms, a spacious living, well equipped kitchen and your own terrace. The views and garden of this friendly guesthouse are great. Imagine the home made breakfast on the deck, a glass of wine or whisky to see...

What a special place to stay! Waking up in the morning to a panoramic view of the sea, immersed in the mountains, smelling pure air and experiencing visual freedom, wide open views and tranquility of the surrounds... Amazing! Thought and attention to detail has been emphasized, quality finishes in the bathroom, good water pressure and lots of natural light enhanced...

Very lovely and helpful people. Perfect place for those who wants to ride the bike. Just 20 minutes away we found fantastic MTB trails to ride around Grabouw in the morning and afternoon relaxing by the pool and enjoying the scenery. Amazing! Sea view rooms are huge. Just missed a fridge in the room.
