We absoultley loved staying with Gwen and Johann at Aan Dorpstraat.
The accomodation is superb, some of the nicest rooms we have stayed in in South Africa, made very special by Gwen's attention to even the tiniest detail in the rooms. There is not one thing she hasn't thought of - even down to lovely little bottles of bath crystals for the super Victorian style roll top bath in our bathroom!
The Guest Huse location is ideal for a wine tasting trip and also for a stay in Stellenbosch as it is just off the main road and a safe walk to where there are a number of lovely restaurants to try.
Gwen and Johan are 2 of the very best hosts we have ever stayed with and to say that Gwen is relentless once she gets her teeth into something, is an understatement!! We only mentioned we had lost our camera in Durban and thought we knew where, to her and she immediately got on to it - locating it for us after a couple of phone calls and arranging it to be couriered out to our next stop in Camps Bay for us. She even rang round and got an amazing deal on the courier service and finally made sure that Rob, the manager, in Camps Bay was Ok to receive the parcel. We were successfully reunited with our camera and more importantly our amazing photos of wildlife in Kruger National Park, as we drove into the drive of our guest house in Camps Bay. Added to this Gwen recommended 2 restaurants for our 2 nights and vineyards for our wine tasting all of which were superb - not one thing we would change!!!
So - what a place and and what a couple of wonderful new friends - we will certainly be returning for another stay when we visit South Arica again in a couple of years time -
