This was our second visit to Highlands and hopefully we will return many more times.
It is simply a lovely restful oasis where quality and care encompass the beautiful house and gardens, the pools, the food and the staff who work there. Carole and Jane along with their team make you feel very special, more like friends than guests, and nothing is too much trouble. The location is quiet while only being a 15 minute drive from The Waterfront down town or the winelands of Constantia or the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens.
Highlands is a true gem and the trouble is you just want to go back and back when there are so many other places in the world to visit; what a dilemma !!
