This is our tenth stay @ Froggs Leap after 13 trips to South Africa so you could say we are somewhat enamoured with its charm.
As with most of the places I review in South Africa, the reason we keep going back is the genuine and wholehearted welcome we receive from the hosts. It is not so much going on holiday as coming back home.
Joke and Stewart run a beautiful establishment - mostly testament to Joke's skills as an interior designer of some repute. The initial visit was full of "wows"and "woos" but it is the fact the property has evolved and retained its fine level of detail that impresses me.
All five rooms in the house are great, think we've stayed in most of them but a special award for the continued excellence of the breakfast with Christine and Tia assisting Joke with Stewart, as ever, responsible for the important matters such as whether there is enough coffee on and the acquisition of that morning's "Cape Times"/"Sunday Times". I usually summon up the courage to ask Joke for a mushroom omelette by about the third day... The other half loves the fruit combibations and the quality of the breads on offer each morning.
We usually aim for a stroll down to the beach and Fisherman's Wharf to make space of the generous portions.
Regular guests come and go and the conversation is always entertaining and occassionally racuous but the welcome to all is genuine and heartfelt.
One of our favourites and we look forward to going back when we return to SA.
