“Great place to relax and have fun with the owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2011

We will certainly be back for our third visit as soon as we can, we love it here. Thys and O'Nel are wonderful hosts and the farm has the most wonderful rooms with everything you could possibly ask for at a B & B. We stayed for 4 nights, including Valentines Day, and O'Nel made the evening very special with a superb dinner. The river trip was great fun, and very different from our trip round the farm the previous year, we will definitely be back and hope that we will be able to get a booking, because with all the praise this B & B is getting, it may well be difficult to book.

Just returned from our 3rd stay at Rouxwil and each stay, if possible, just gets better and better.What makes it so special is the welcome, care and friendliness given by O'Nel and Thys. It is a very special place - they gave us a magical last evening in SA by taking all the guests down the river for a bbq on their pontoon - we were surrounded by the noises of an african night with all the stars and the moon reflecting on the river - what a wonderful memory to go home with and it makes us long to return again

We have been staying here for a few years now, and think of Thys & O'nel as friends. They are a charming couple and will do everything possible to make your stay a happy one. The rooms a very spacious with A/C , double showers and washbasins. Also an outside shower.Breakfast and dinner are taken at the farmhouse, and all the food is delicious. The position is quite remote with superb views , so it is nice not to have to drive for dinner.
This is a working farm, and we find it very interesting to talk with Thys about his crops and sheep etc. He will also do a farm tour and sundowners on the nearby river. An absolute delight.
This is the ideal place to relax and recharge your batteries.

Everything was first class and Thys and O"nel were charming hosts. They looked after the four of us so well and we would recommend this lovely little piece of heaven to anyone looking for tranquility and friendship. A great experience.

If you are looking for a few days of total relaxation and comfort, enjoy exellent food and good company then I would not hesitate to recommend Rouxwil. O'Nel and Thys are everything good hosts should be. The accommodation is spacious and spotlessly clean. My wife and I have just returned from our second visit. We will definately return!

They don't crow about it, but Rouxwil have just been voted Best Farm Accomodation in South Africa. Its difficult to imagine how anwhere could possibly be better. This is the third time Maggie and I have stayed at Rouxwil, and everybody we have met there has been before. That says it all. Superlatives abound on these reviews, but believe them. This is THE place to stay in the Western Cape. Rouxwil is a haven of luxury and tranquility. The food that O'Nel produces every evening is top notch with a terrific selection of local wines, served by your other genial host Thys - who somehow finds time to take you on farm tours, boat trips and fire up your quad bike as well as running the farm. Its wonderful - we'll definitely be back next year

This was our second stay at Rouxwil and we will be back. Spacious rooms some with outdoor showers, fridge and aircon. But it's really O'nel and Thys that make it so special with their warm hospitality. Great breakfasts and wonderful dinners. Close to winelands and Hermanus. Our trip on the river was an unforgettabe experience. Relaxed stay on a farm with some game just in your front yard and great hosts that make you feel at home the minute you arrive
