Kerstin and Rene are great hosts in this very nicely designed and maintained property which has a beautiful garden and pool, with spectacular mountain views. Breakfast is plentiful and very nicely presented, either inside or out. Our only issue was that it is a little way out of Stellenbosch (35 mins walk) and we hadn't anticipated the difficulty of getting... More

This B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood in Stellenbosch. By car it takes about 5 to 10 minutes to reach the city centre. We could park our rental car on the premises which is secured by a gate. Kerstin and René serve a wonderful breakfast buffet with of course freshly cooked or baked eggs. We stayed in the 'Rozendal'... More

I was lucky when I spent one day in Stellebosch. First of all, because I had a good weather: one perfect sunny day, no rain even if it was (their) winter. But, above all, ‘cause I stay at Keren’s Vine. Kerstin and Rene have a beautiful house in a peaceful suburb, only five minutes by car from the city centre.... More

Regarding all good opinions on tripadvisor and the 4 stars of this guest house, we came here. But really, it doesn't deserve 4 stars, at least 2 stars.

We stayed in the Stellenbosch Room which may be the best room, as it opens out to the deck of the pool. Although this is a common sharing deck, it was pretty quiet at the time when we stayed there, and we had the deck all to ourselves and could sit there looking at the stars in the night !... More
