Moores End
Reviewed 30 September 2014

Moores End was just the pefect place for a 3 day visit to the area around Stellenbosch, Franshoek and Cape town. It has everything you need for self catering- great kitchen facilities, linens, towels, and a spacious lounge to relax and look out over the stunning mountain views. We wanted something affordable but with the luxuries you are used to at home- no small feat when going through the accommodations on offer in this very sought after area. Sibs has acheived this with style and grace, and knows the area really well. Just a quick 10 minute drive to the heart of Stellenbosch, and nestled amongst all the main wine farms and attractions, our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We will be back as soon as we can to enjoy the privacy, comfort and beauty of this very special property. Thanks Sibs, keep doing what you do!

Room Tip: We stayed in a self catering cottage called the peach tree- great views, private, and with an indoor...

When attending a wedding in Stellenbosch recently, Moores End ticked all the boxes. And over delivered on some, especially value for money.
Our self catering unit was perfectly equipped with everything you could think of, it had a beautiful view of the mountains and the family of Rodesian Ridgebacks were always there to greet us on return.
Recommend unreservedly.

We stayed here a year back, it was absolutely amazing! The views alone were incredible - waking up to that view every morning was just the best. Very close to everything around Stellenbosch. The apartment alone was in amazing condition and clean.

Moores End has more than one vacation rental suite but we chose the one with the fabulous view of the mountains. The suite was very modern and spacious with a wall of glass opening onto a deck exposing the tremendous view. Sibs, our hostess is extremely gracious and mades sure that we lacked nothing. The location is also excellent for winery touring. It is located right between Stellenbosch, Franschoek and Paarl allowing easy access to dozens of good wineries. It is also just down the road from one of the best restaurants in the area at Tokara Winery. On top of all this, the price of Moores End's rooms are half of anything that could be considered comparable. Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: The one across the parking area from the main house and nearest to it has a stunning view.

Moores End is a combination of several self catering cottages as well as rooms within the main house up in the mountains of Stellenbosch. My 2 married children and their spouses stayed in one cottage which had ensuite bathrooms for each of the 2 bedrooms as well as a large area for cooking, eating, and other activities that we enjoy as a family. I stayed in the Nest which is a small cottage up above the others and having a spectacular view of the mountains as well as the Moore's beautiful and well-kept gardens, including protea, of which both our rooms had a beautiful bouquet waiting when we arrived. It was a great central location for our day trips to Cape Point, Hermanus, the Waterfront in Cape Town, Boulder Bay, Somerset West, and the little historic towns of Stellenbosch and Franschoek. Sibs and Basil are the perfect hosts, more gracious hosts you cannot find. We stayed for 7 nights and it was cheap, as has been mentioned in other reviews. It was comfortable and private, a great retreat after our busy days of sightseeing
