The owners Nell and Andrew are knowledgeable and friendly and the food is excellent. The rooms were well proportioned and maintained and the whole experience was great. We went to a local Portuguese restaurant which they recommended and that too was top notch.

Surprising, self contained, Luxury in a dusty farmland ; excellent Personal Service ; beautiful views from the patio vantage point & a sunset of note. Room three is beautifully appointed, with every possible amenity.

It was refreshing to stay somewhere so quiet and relaxed. There was no pretence, you felt welcomed by the family run house whilst being encouraged to interact with other guests if you so wished. For me the highlight were the friendly dogs, don't worry if you're not a fan of dogs they are kept out of the way.

On arrival we received a warm welcome from Andy and immediately felt at home. The house is amazing and is set in the most beautiful location.

Andrew & Nell have the art of hospitality providing down to a tee, in that they are always there but not in an intrusive way. The nice cold fridge with the cold filtered water was welcome, but especially since Calitzdorp is wine country a couple of wine glasses should be room fixtures. An enjoyable stay.

Thank you for the kind review. We are always open to ideas to improve our offering and thank you for your comment around the wine glasses. As we are fully licensed, our guests typically order wine from us, this is then delivered in an ice bucket with accompanying ice and glasses. As we have gone to the huge expense of...

Stopped here for a couple of nights while touring along the R62. We were made very welcome by Andrew and Nel. The house has a slightly olde worlde feel through its furnishings but the bedroom we had was large, fully equipped and nicely air-conditioned and had a spacious, luxury en-suite, and there was a small patio area through French windows...
