Excellent secure location with stunning views

5 of 5
We’ve just had a 7 night stay at this wonderful location. We couldn’t fault the cleanliness and amenities at the property. We were greeted by Marianne who showed us around and gave us all the details we needed to have a great stay. The property is on a secure gated complex which is easy to get to and removed all the worries we had about safety in South Africa. If you want to get away from the city and explore this wonderful part of the world then this is the place to stay. It’s only a few minutes from Gordon’s Bay and less than 30 minutes from Stellenbosch, where we had an amazing wine walk at the wonderful Waterford Estates. Will be recommending this property to anyone I know who is planning a South African holIday 😀
