Had prebooked taking the chance, given that The Schoone Ort was fully booked by the time and did not regiert our decision a single moment.

When we arrived early afternoon, morning view suite was already waiting for us and Chanel gave us a warm reception and showed us around. The suite is one of three in the most modern building, just by the parking. You do get a bit of noise from neighbors (ours had two below teenage boys), but otherwise simp,y perfect: modern with style, great bed by the window (yes, you can sleep with fully open windows here), lovely linen, nice adjoining walk in closet, spacious and legendär living room with doors to spacious and fully equipped bathroom, a private terrace to the lake and a private terrace (sunny) to the pool. The bathroom has floor heating, huge tub, huge separate shower with both rain and hand held, two sinks and the toilet. All the toiletries are there and where luxury, magnifying glass, cleenex, shower cap, shower gel, cotton balls, ear buds, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner....you name it. Everything nicely decorated.

Their small pool allows for fun bathing, not swimming, but is deep and salt water and very clean. There are deck chairs around it, all very clean and well kept.

In the lush garden there are more deck chairs, a jacuzzi on a wooden deck and you get a view of their zebras and springbok. Everything exhales harmony and tranquility. Rain spa next doors.

On the other side of the pool (in from another three rooms) the hosts private house with breakfast terrace where they feed humming birds or breakfast inside when weather does not permit outside. The buffet is sumptuous, service perfect, coffee in all its variations delicious as are fresh fruit and eggs cooked to your liking, with whatever you want with them with.

Francisca and Andreas are great hosts, full of charm, attention, care for their paradise and guests, tips of what to do and where to go. They or Chanel booked us into the two bets operating restaurants in Swellendam early April: field & fork and Droste.

We definitely recommend to stay there to couples. You are about 3,5 km from the Restaurants mentioned above, easy walk for adults.

We had 2 nights in the loft suite which was amazing and so clean. The gardens too were immaculate. The owners were lovely and so helpful. We just chilled out on the second day and visited a museum in Swellendam which is a lovely little peaceful town. There are several restaurants within walking distance (one next door and across the road) and more a short drive away. Stay at least two nights!

Excellent accommodation within very beautiful gardens. Welcoming and informative hosts. Wide breakfast choice which was delicious and served in the stunning gardens. We enjoyed our walk in the garden with its many interesting nooks and crannies, especially the resident zebras and springbok. We were only sorry our stay was so short.

Our fourth visit to this charming guest house located a few minutes off the N2. It make an ideal place to break the journey along the route from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town.
Every time we stay ( four times now), we regret not allowing an extra day to just stay and enjoy the lovely environment and facilities offered by this ' paradise'.
After poor weather during our last visit, this time we had wonderful sunshine and enjoyed the grounds and breakfast on the terrace under the trees. Andreas and his wife are charming hosts who make every effort to make your stay enjoyable and restful, however long you stay. They have detailed knowledge of the local restaurants and are very happy to book a table and arrange a taxi to take / return you to the hotel.
Next time we journey along the 'garden route', we are determined to build in enough time for a longer stay at this lovely oasis just off the N2.
