accommodation in the Garden Route, South Africa

Desmond is at the helm of the garden and Philda runs the guest house– assisted by Elize, who can speak German, Dutch and French.

This authentic Cape Georgian house (circa 1861) has been sympathetically restored as a Boutique B&B targeting guests with an appreciation for gardens and history.

The food is home-made, home-grown or locally sourced.

* 7 bedrooms * free WIFI * off street parking * Swimming pool * Golf nearby * 20 km from the airport * 10 minutes from beach * Some rooms equipped for self- catering .
