Our trendy boutique guesthouse and elegant executive apartments offer luxury accommodation in Stellenbosch, Camps Bay and Strand – False Bay’s golden mile beachfront.

Conveniently located in the historic centre of Stellenbosch – with shops, fine restaurants, art galleries and recreational facilities within walking distance – the guesthouse is exquisitely furnished with contemporary flair.
Spacious and grand, guests can put their feet up in the lavish living room, where coffee, tea and snacks are always available, or they can lounge about the patio beside our crystal clear pool.

During winter our guests often sit beside our cosy fireplace with a book and a glass of local wine.
