Cute cottage on beautiful property and Alex was very accommodating and communication was easy. WiFi was a bit slow and patchy - just mentioning it in case you are someone who needs to stay connected while there.

If you're looking for a quiet retreat in Franschhoek, this is a great place. Cozy cottage, lots of outdoor space, and a wonderful host. Alex went above and beyond for us, and is always quick to respond. Thanks Alex!

Alex’s communication was superb and she was extremely helpful in answer any/all questions we had. The cottage is basic, but has everything you’ll need and the setting is beautiful. Very easy access to Franschhoek too.

Albeit basic, simple accommodations in small cottages (kitchenette - so no oven fyi), this is the perfect location to explore Franschoek, Stellenbosch, Paarl and the wine farms all around the area. It also has the added advantage of being on the edge of a nature reserve. Amazing…

Lovely cottage in a great location. Alex was a consummate host, even giving our party a lift in to town when all the local taxis were fully booked!

The scenery and setting is beautiful and all Basic amenities are provided. Alex is a great host who is very easy going. Great for fly fishing! The interior if the cottage is very rustic/not modern and wifi is not in the cottage.
