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, history + S.A. hospitality.

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

The food is home-made, home-grown or locally sourced. Special dietary requests catered for. We can accommodate private birthday celebrations / special occasion dinner or high tea for up to 30 guests.
