From the first hello you fall in love with this beautiful english colonial house with the most stunning gardens and little secret paths laid out with pebbles. The poolside is amazing and whether you swim or just drink a cocktail, it just makes you forget that you are in the city! Between leaves and tree branches you find the zen house where you can spoil yourself to a lovely massage. I had 26 of my closest friends and they celebrated with me an unforgettable evening! On the poolside everyone was chatting and relaxing while a jazz band played music. We were swept away to a different time and place. We had dinner at the house and the table was laid out with stunning roses, silverware, and lovely cotton napkins. We sat down to a lovely four course meal which was decided by myself and Marietjie. The butler's serving us, did everything with a smile! We had our own music and danced the night away. This evening I will remember for the rest of my life because they made a the memory. We had the Catherine Suite for the night and was greeted with a lovely breakfast. When we left the staff sang us a beautiful song, opened our motor doors and we left this breathtaking house, nothing was too much for them, just their best and even that made us feel like a King and Queen.
