We booked into the Garden House on the recommendation of the Tripadvisor ratings and were not disappointed in the slightest. We stayed at the Garden House for a week and it made our holiday. If you can, stay in the Garden House which is off to the side (Barry and Annette also rent out a room inside their house). Our room was beautifully appointed with a very large bedroom, huge bathroom (with two person bath, walk-in shower and heated floor) and porch. The House is a five minute walk into town and as Franschhoek is such a quiet town you can leave the car and walk, which is a blessing in such a car-centric country.
Annette and Barry were the perfect hosts giving us time and space when needed (we spent a couple of the days just relaxing by the pool) or beavering away on our behalf when we wanted to go out. We had fab restaurants booked on our behalf and lots of excellent vineyard recommendations (Lynx and MyWyn are musts if you visit). If you are an animal lover you can also accompany Annette as she feeds the local township dogs.
Overall we would recommend the Garden House to everyone. It is a lovely place to stay with beautiful views and, more importantly, wonderful hosts who really work hard to make you feel welcome and ensure you have a good time.
