A gem of a find in Gordon's bay South Africa! Wish we'd had longer to stay as the views were amazing, the service impeccable and the location brilliant. I highly recommend a few nights at the chocolate box!

We spent two nights at this delightful Guest House! Excellent friendly service from Olaf and staff. Attention to detail outstanding in the decor, presentation of breakfast and it seems...all they put their hand to. The views from the deck/verandah are spectacular. A great place for a getaway!

Gordon's Bay does not offer much but the owner recommended...

Artistic, locally-inspired/sourced guesthouse with warm welcome and clean, comfortable, spacious rooms. Great views of Gordon's Bay. Highly recommended and an excellent base for exploring the Stellenbosch region and local wineries with local knowledge from the hosts. Our only regret? We could only stay for one night!

The place is even better that all the pictures you will see. That's because, first, yes, it is as delicate and refined in the decoration of the bedrooms and any other room as you can see on the pictures. But in addition, when you live the experience of living at Olaf's and Brad's, you are spoiled like you probably rarely...

From the moment my partner and I pulled into the driveway we knew we were in for a royal treat. The contemporary design and sculptured landscaping was crowned by a huge water feature that instilled peace and tranquility.
