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

* 7 bedrooms (some with self-catering option) * free WIFI * off street parking * Swimming pool * Golf nearby * 20 km to airport * 10 minutes from beach.

You love the antiques, but you do not want it to feel ‘old’. You want a warm room in winter, a cool room in summer, a good breakfast, space for your luggage, an iron and ironing board, a hairdryer, a small fridge, good quality coffee in your room, a firm mattress, percale linen, good quality pillows - that is essential. At Fairview Historic Homestead you’ll find all of that and more...

Desmond is at the helm of the garden and Philda runs the guest house– assisted by Elize.

Do contact us - we'd love to have you stay.

Go to the Bedrooms page for detail and photos. Go to the Book Online page for rates and availability.
