We had 3 lovely nights with Jo-Anne and Johan (and adorable little dog, Rafiki) between Christmas and New Year. The location was very convenient to visiting the winelands and False Bay Area of Cape Town. The room was more like a small apartment - with small kitchenette (with dishwasher and full fridge) in the spacious living/dining area, plus a separate...

My heart almost skipped a beat when I saw the Blaauwheim signboard and realized where my husband was taking me for my birthday surprise.
