Johan and Jo-Anne are superb hosts of an amazingly beautiful house. Our private suite had a full bathroom as well as a separate guests’ toilette, all in honey coloured travertine and stunning bathroom fittings. The king-sized bed is draped in plush linen and silk duvet and pillows and hung with ample, thick sound and light absorbing curtains. Most outstanding are the heirloom pieces and sought after artwork by famous artists in both the private sitting room and bedroom. There is a well stocked bar fridge in the kitchen area. Here you will be able to do a bit of self-catering (equipped with a dishwasher) The kitchenette fits in with the rest of the accommodation with exceptional high standard of finishing Johan, a retired diplomat, dons the chef’s coat with pride. His fruit platters are a decorated artwork. Breakfast is superb starting with the best fresh fruit platter I have ever had, freshly pressed orange juice and a good selection of muesli’s and cheese and a cooked platter. Did I mention that this must be the guesthouse with the best dressed table – Spilhaus silver cutlery and Noritake bone crockery The garden with its collection of rare cycads, indigenous trees such at Outeniqua Yellowwood and Broad-leafed Yellowwood is home to squirrels and numerous birds including paradise flycatcher. Jo-Anne is especially proud of her collection of Clivia Maniata. The garden is ensconced by a lattice of horizontally layered saplings. The guesthouse is situated behind high walls and electronic gates. This friendly guest house is recommended wholeheartedly.
