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. Special dietary requests catered for - we also do delicious Banting breakfasts :)

* 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 .

Go to the Bedrooms page for detail and photos.
