Walter and Coleen are the nicest people you will meet in South Africa. Very nice room and gardens. The breakfast was delicious and generous. Thank you Colleen and Walter for making our stay extra special. We hope to be back in town in the not too distant future. We would highly recommend staying at this lovely location.
We arrived in cold and misty Stellenbosch to an inviting fire and offers of coffee and red wine. Colleen and Walter were such delightful and considerate hosts. Together, they prepare an amazing multi-stage breakfast and they engage in conversations on any topic imaginable. Our room was beautifully decorated and we loved spending time in their impressive library or in front of the fireplace.
From their home, we were within short walking distance of some excellent coffee shops and restaurants and could easily pop in to the local Checkers for some groceries.
We loved our stay and would return for the accommodation, the food and the company. It was the perfect centrally-located base for exploring some stunning vineyards and local attractions.

Walter and Colleen were perfect hosts. Great welcome with a lunch together. We felt at home. Very erudite and great conversations. Room was basic and clean. Great service for washing our laundry. I would recommend staying here.
Walter & Colleen are two very nice people. The accommodation was beautiful. Colleen made every day a wonderful breakfast. We really enjoyed the time!
This was my first time to South Africa, and Walter and Colleen gave me the best possible impression. They are such kind, considerate people; I really hope I get to see them again. Both of them are brilliant, you can talk to them about anything. Breakfast every morning was INCREDIBLE, restaurants would brag on that kind of spread! This was the best part for me - I had an odd request before I came - wanted to play a certain kind of guitar and Walter did his best to have one there for me. I felt very safe and welcome there, in fact I didn't want to leave there to move on to the next leg of my trip. Great value for the money. The house has a beautiful garden and is decorated with fine art, many original paintings by Colleen. It's located in a very nice part of Stellenbosch, walking distance to the university, restaurants and rugby and cricket facilities. If I ever get to go back I'm staying there.
Staying with Walter and Colleen is what AirBNB is all about. They have the most beautiful authentic house you can find, help you out with every question/problem you have and are extremely flexible. If you are looking for the real Stellenbosch experience, this is the place to be. Walking distance to every place in Stellenbosch.
We would HIGHLY recommend our stay at Walter&Colleens....felt better than a hotel experience!We had a warm welcome&felt so spoilt with all the extra specials Walter did for us....thank you Walter for your servant&generous heart....you made our stay feel like we were on holiday!!We slept extremely comfortable&woke up to a lavish breakfast....everything was so homey&we loved sitting right by the fireplace&having good conversations with Walter!!!We hope to be back soon!
I stayed for a week at Walter and Colleen's house and I had a lovely stay. The location is convenient for anyone needing access to central Stellenbosch and you are not far from either cape town or the winelands. I sing particular praise of the breakfast and really both Walter and Colleen as hosts as they are really a joy to get to know and stay with. I also had fun meeting some of the other guests as meeting others was a great way to get to know Stellenbosch and surrounding parts of South Africa.
The listing was exactly as described and Colleen and Walter were such amazing hosts! I've never had had such hospitable hosts and their food was outstanding. I was sad to leave!
Very nice, friendly guests. Highly recommended.
