I think this place is truly a hidden gem, can't believe I am the first to review. It is a guest house with 2 rooms. One has private entrance, both with private baths. Decor is very nice - dutch farmhouse type style. And decor of second room is very modern. The owners are wonderful people, so welcoming and helpful. And our favorite part (aside from the inexpensive price) was the great location - it is just one block off Franschoek's main street with all the restaurants. So after a day of wine tasting it is great to just walk downtown. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, cute place to stay in the wine region without paying a lot of money this is the place for you! Also there is secure parking. We booked it at: http://www.hostelworld.com/hosteldetails.php/22-Van-Wijk-Street-Accommodation/Franschhoek/37670
But don't be alarmed - it is truly NOT a hostel. It is a guest house but at hostel prices. Perfect!
(Note: the in keeper told me she was not too familiar with Travelocity perhaps because they do not get too many Americans. But if you stay there and enjoy it please do leave a review for their sake!!)
