On our way to Avalon Springs we stayed 1 night at ACARA with our 3 children. Fiona was there to host us with her wonderful smile and to make us feel immediately at ease with her friendly dog.
The stay was perfect, the house so pleasant and perfectly well located on the wine road just a few minutes away of Stellenbosh.
Practical, spacious and very clean! Fiona gave us good tips (the chitas) that made our trip unforgettable!
If we go back to S.A. and visit the wine road, we for sure would come back to the same place. Strongly recommended for families or people who like nature!!

We had the privilege to visit beautiful Acara again, but this time with a small (busy) toddler. The beautiful gardens, horses, owls, squirrels, birds welcomed us every morning! Stunning venue, even although the Cape drought's effects could be seen all over the province. Fiona was massively welcoming as always and no problem was too big or too small!

Room Tip: Jacaranda cottage is ideal for small young families

The room itself (jacaranda room) was average. Towels were drip dried & very rough, advertised iPod charger was 5 years old & irrelevant, no cold water in the fridge, shower very weak, etc.

The grounds are lovely & the owners pleasant. The pool is heated & beautifully cared for. Hence the four stars, but the room isn't worth the cost

Stayed in Acara when in town for a wedding. Great accommodation! Lovely helpful host and the grounds are a credit to Fiona the owner. Conveniently located and easy to get to from Capetown. Also uber services this area so super easy and cheap to get around if you don't want to drive. Suitable for couples or families with a lovely space to have a BBQ/brai.... the restaurants and wineries surrounding Acara however are incredible and you won't want to eat in too often! Thanks again Fiona. We would highly recommend a stay here

We stayed at Fiona's place for 5nights when we visited South Africa (stellenbosch) for a wedding! It really is a GORGEOUS place to call home!

Fiona was so helpful from start to finish and was very reasonable with any of our extra requests. The place is really secure with two secure gates at the entrance and the gardens and grounds really are to die for! We didn't want to leave!! The pool is lovely also and so so peaceful. It's located a 45 min drive from capetown and is surrounded by some of the best restaurants/wineries that we have ever eaten in.

Somerset -west is 5mins away which has a couple of Michelin starred restaurants too. You really will be spoilt for choice! It's a 10min drive to stellenbosch but we rarely felt the need to go that far with so many wine tasting/food options closer by. We travelled as two couples but the accommodation is definitely family friendly too. Can't recommend Acara enough and we will definitely be coming back to visit again!

Thanks again Fiona :-)
