Wonderful old Georgian homestead, nestled under the mountain in George.
Philda was such a gracious hostess , the home so tastefully furnished with such attention to detail. Wonderful breakfasts at the poolside with a super view of the mountain.
Great evening drinks and chats at the fireside with her and her husband Desmond , who is such an interesting gentleman who spends hours scratching around in his beautiful garden, and despite the drought has managed to keep it all going !
This was not our first visit and will not be our last !
At our request, Philda cooked us a really great dinner aswell.
A truly special experience and looking forward to returning !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Experience hospitality in a unique and authentic (circa 1861) Cape Georgian historical home. Fairview Homestead is a 5 bedroom guest house in B&B style - that means the owners,Desmond and Philda, live on the premises. The guest rooms are private, but we have a communal lounge/breakfast area for the guests. Philda is responsible for the running of the Guest House and Desmond is the gardener and plant collector (when not in the garden, still working as a medical doctor) We have a large kitchen garden, a small orchard and keep our own chickens. Do consider staying a few days: George is the hub of golf in the Garden Route with many of South Africa's top courses within a 60km radius. We can organize a guided tour of the garden Route wine route, paragliding, bungee jumping, game drives to Bottelierskop Game Reserve and trips to the Seal Island and/or Shark cage diving in Mossel Bay... ... more less
