Wow. We were really amazed by this place.. Did not really want to leave actually!
We stayed at the Bed & Breakfast (but they also have a nice cottage), which is located next to the grand house. It has a lovely room with very good comfy beds and a bathroom with a REAL nice bath. In front of your room there is a verandah with two chairs where you can enjoy their own wine in the evening. The property is owned by Charles and Charlene, a South African/British couple, who are very helpful, friendly and great fun. They live in the grand house, but the estate is so huge that it also houses their children and grandchildren. The whole family is actually very warm and welcoming, we felt at home immediately! And all of them have dogs, real nice and friendly ones. Felt really safe.
The Grand house is an Cape Dutch House, one of the prettiest in the region.. it's been a set for many of movies and photo shootings.. If the weather is nice (which it, after that South-easter that hit the cape, was luckily..) you have breakfast outside on the patio under a roof of vine... They make an excellent breakfast by the way and if you like it, they'll join in for a cup of coffee or tea. We liked that friendly and personal approach a lot and had great laughs.. Plus they gave us very handy suggestions for the region and even outside the region.
The estate has a beautiful garden through which you can wander, it is house to many of different birds and also has a playing area for the kids. You can walk their neighbours estate as well, who has springbok, wildebeest, zebra's, kudu, oryx and all kinds of bokkies. It has a Dam where you can either enjoy a nice sunset, but we used it for a nice run in the morning.
All in all, we felt like we discovered a well kept secret! We are definately coming back here and we'll stay longer then...!

Room Tip: call in advance to book, you don't want to miss out on this place!
