We were fortunate to come across the Garden House on this, our fourth, visit to Fransschoek. You will not find better, in our opinion. Annette and Barry are the most hospitable and kind hosts we have come across - we made good friends during our stay and expect to return as soon as we can!

We still talk about the wonderful breakfast sitting overlooking the garden and the mountains beyond. The bedroom in the cottage is wonderfully presented and we have never seen a bigger bathroom!

But be prepared ... Bunjie the dog will expect you to play with him!!!

This was our second visit to South Africa and we just had to return to The Garden House. The setting in Franschhoek is wonderful with beautiful views of the mountains from the veranda.
Annette treated us like long lost friends, nothing was too much trouble for her. Annette has a wealth of imformation on places to visit and accomodation in other areas and she is always willing to make any restaurant bookings or other arrangements you require.
We stayed in the Coach House which is a beautiful room with all the little extras such as a fridge full of cold drinks, cafetiere etc and a fantastic en suite bathroom.

We stayed for 5 nights in March and were made so welcome it was a wrench to move on to Camps Bay. Annette is the perfect hostess and couldn't do enough to ensure we had a fantastic time.
The breakfast was delicious and abundant with proper coffee, the ideal way to start the day.
The photographs don't do the room justice, it was just perfect, spotlessly clean, big, extremly comfortable bed and a huge luxurious bathroom. The setting is beautiful and so peaceful, the garden and pool a delight and the franschhoek restaurants all an easy walk away.
We intend to return next year and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!

The Garden House is a beautiful place to stay and Annette and Barry really made our stay in Franschoek a wonderful experience.

We had only planned to stay for a night or two, but already after the first night we realized that we had to stay longer and luckily Annette had an opening in her busy schedule and we were able to stay for 3 more nights. Franschoek offers plenty of things to do in and around during the days and with the wonderful restaurants in town you will eat fantastic meals and drink great wines. Ask Annette to give you recommendations for activities and restaurants, we did and it ensured that we had great fun during the days and had gourmet experiences at dinner time.

I recommend everyone that comes to the Cape area to spend several days in Franschoek and if you are able to get a room in The Garden House with Annette and Barry I can guarantee that you to will have a wonderful experience!

Best regards

We stayed in the Garden House for three nights - great memories of smoked trout breakfasts on the veranda overlooking the stunning Franschoek valley, before heading out for a hard day's wine tasting, back to recharge and freshen up in the large and immaculate bathroom, then on to one of the many fine restaurants in the village and finally collapsing into the very comfortable bed. Annette was great for guidance and recommendations, and very generous with her time and hospitality generally. And the dogs were friendly! Would thoroughly recommend the Garden House.
