It was perfect except for the noisy dogs waking us up in the morning. It was a great place to stay for touring in the area. The breakfast was excellent and the hosts were very pleasant and helpful. We would recommend it for anybody wanting to stay just outside of Cape Town.

We had the option of having breakfast for an extra fee, and when we did we found it extremely varied and plentiful. The communal areas for us and other guests were gorgeous,...

We spent the most relaxing days of our tour around the Cape Region in the Southern Cross. Marc and Claudia are perfect hosts. The location is cosy and quiet yet so close to all the local attractions (wineries, restaurants , shopping, golf, beach, etc.). Sufficient parking is available in the beautiful garden. The breakfasts leave very little room for improvment...

We were looking for a place to stay for one night, and were so happy we found this fantastic place to stay. As soon as we arrived we felt at home with Marc's hospitality and kind welcoming nature.
