The estate is an oasis waking up to birdsong of a morning. We stayed for one night on two separate occasions. The weather cooperated for us to sunbathe the first time and to drink champagne around the pool before cooling off for a swim. We appreciated the use of the golf sized umbrellas the second time.
The breakfasts were amazing and we appreciated having maps printed off for our off the beaten track routes to get to our next stop along the Garden Route.
The urban chic was a pleasant change from our more traditional overnight stops and it worked so well with the surroundings. We loved the little candle lit trees at dusk and the scent of the flowers.
As an added touch, the gardener even washed one of the cars, having had a bit of an "off road" experience coming across from CPT!
Knowing just how booked this establishment can get, I'd suggest travellers book as soon as they know their dates.
Well done Carla and Maarten!
