New kids on the block





Twenty-one years ago, just before we bought Fairview, we made an offer on another heritage property in George, but the owner decided to withdraw Whispering Oaks from the market. We were quite heartbroken, but then we found Fairview – and the rest is history…

I am happy to announce that our daughter Nelleke and her husband Michael just bought Whispering Oaks!

This all happened very fast and with great serendipity. In the meantime, they are painting, furnishing, decorating – to hopefully open between Christmas and 1 January sometime.  Initially they will only have three rooms, but eventually, there will be 8 rooms offered on a B&B basis and 1 self-catering unit. Talking about breakfast – it will be good as Nelleke is a qualified chef and food stylist by profession.

Situated in Caledon Street, centrally located in George, all the Whispering Oaks bedrooms are en-suite, have flat-screen televisions, DSTV, queen-sized beds with good quality mattresses and white percale linen. The decor can be described as a contemporary, Scandinavian style. Guests are within walking distance to many good restaurants, the Botanical Gardens and only a few minute’s drive to the beachfront in Victoria Bay.

I think they are going to be my biggest competition in George…

I write from the heart, the way I speak and, as my mother tongue is Afrikaans, my grammar is not always perfect. I am constantly intrigued by the number of guests who mentions that they read my blog posts - I would love to hear from you if you enjoyed a particular post.
