We highly recommend this boutique accommodation. Quiet area of Paarl with a wonderful view of the valley. Well kept garden and a large swimming pool. The property has a guest lounge overlooking the garden towards to mountains opposite. Our room was downstairs with parking outside the room. The bathroom had a large bath and a separate shower. Beautifully appointed big...

Great location, friendly host. Breakfast is really good.. parking is a bit of an issue, and the rooms are extremely close to each other, so you will hear things thru the walls. Host gave us some good recommendations for dinner.

I was truly disappointed with this establishment. After a long day on the road, I checked in to find that the fridges in the rooms had been disconnected and there were no cold beverages available from the honesty bar. The view from the lounge area is beautiful but that is the only positive of my experience. The breakfast consisted of...

This accommodation is perfectly located, the house is lovely, rooms very clean and comfortable. The garden is absolutely wonderful and naturally large swimming pool. The view from living room is marvellous overlooking garden and nearby mountains. Breakfast perfect, you may even ask for specials like home baked bread, bacon butty etc. Strongly recommended

“Nice view choose room 1, it does get the sun in the morning, or room 4, which is the largest and coolest in the summer.”
