Our neighbourhood is a perfect example of a well integrated South African community where people from different ethnic groups and social standing live together in harmony.
We chose to build our home in this suburb, because it reflects the true diverse nature of our country. For a slice of authentic South African culture, come stay for a few weeks in Jamestown – one of Stellenbosch's historic neighbourhoods.
Enjoy the view!

No smoking. No pets. No young children (sorry, we're still working on that one!)
About the Host, Dian
My wife and I built our new home in Jamestown (Stellenbosch) and poured a lot of our love and energy into it. Our closest friends tell us that it truly expresses who we are: open, creative, adventurous, loving and a bit quirky.
We invite you to share in our living space while we are away and enjoy the authentic community of the people of the winelands.
