Client Reviews

  • Sublime Rhodes Cottage

    The accommodation is world class. The breakfast served at the cottage was delicious. There was to my surprise a fully stocked bar so no need to bring drinks along. The cottage even had some mountain bikes handy to ride.
    This is not just an escape, this is the Cape at it’s finest. It was a feast for the senses, loved the stay at Rhodes Cottage.

  • Beautiful Farm

    Boschendal is a beautiful farm and a must stop for good wine. Tasting room is awesome and the staff is very informative about their wines. Enjoyed the fact that their staff took tome to sit with us at the table and explain the wine in detail!

  • The best family holiday venue in Cape Town

    What a remarkable place offering more than we could ever have hoped. The accommodation at the Orchard Cottages allowed the kids to roam and meet others, playing outdoors. The Tree House is a breathtaking kids club which your children will not want to leave. All the while, mom and dad can do the Spa, got for a wine tasting, cellar tour, farm tour, horseriding, or sit and watch the farm life continue around you. This is a gem in the Winelands and will be a firm family favourite!
