This outstanding part of the world was matched by the wonderful accomadation we were lucky enough to be staying at, a large but homely manor house beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and very well appointed meant even when we were not sight seeing we still new we were on a very special holiday. Every aspect of the guest house had clearly been thought through carefully by the wonderful and welcoming owners Colin and Mark. From interior desgn and comfort to the truely beauiful gardens and relaxing pool area. Their local knowledge was impecable and advice on what was on offer to us meant we did and saw many things we may not have otherwise known about like the fantastic and cool Biscuit mill market, and the brand new bus service linked the guest house and cape town, V&A water front and other points of intrest with ease meaning you could happily stay without ever needing to use a car. Plus the bus was less then a pound so could save you alot of money.
If being in cape Town with an outstanding view of Table Mountain right next to the sea was not a good enough reason to get up in the morning then the breakfasts certainly are. We had a delishously different hot breatfast every day which was the perfect way to prepare yourself for Whale watching, wine farms, Cape point, Table mountain (which while we were away was announced as a new natural wonder of the world) or maybe something light like tea and toast with their Vrede Manor home made honey and jams before doing a shark dive.
The two weeks stay was as lovely, friendly and faultless from start to finish and we plan to return to this beautiful guest house in the near future. We have already been recommending to all our friends at home. Vrede Manor, Colin and Mark really made our stay a pleasure.
