"My wife and I are from South Africa and enjoy exploring locally. This is by far the best equipped and spacious self-catering facilities we have experienced to date. We enjoyed the DSTV and wi-fi and built a fire in the fireplace every night. Franschoek is a beautiful little village and we hope to visit again. The manageress, Rita, is a friendly, well spoken and gracious hostess and made us feel welcome."

"The Merlot cottage was great.......altho 2 bathrooms would be much better......4 women and 1 bathroom is a challange.

The location is superb....the pool area inviting.

Better lighting in the living room area needs a bit of help.....just bright overhead lights.....needs some lamps on tables by the sofas.

The staff was great, very helpful.

"Blocked shower which lead to a flooded bathroom, which was resolved the next day. We didn't have any outside area. But they had a lovely veggie garden to which we were invited to help ourselves to.

"This was definitely different to your ordinary guest house. The owners were accommodating and attentive towards our needs. The staff provided friendly service, and they were also very helpful. Our bedrooms were spotlessly clean, and comfortable. It was nice walking around the premises but our only down fall was the owners dogs. She had four dogs of which 1 was female and completely over baring. She would jump on us every time we passed by, pull on our clothing, and the constant barking was unacceptable. I have dogs at home so fortunately I knew how to handle the dogs. I just don't think pets should be allowed where you are running a business, because not everybody is pet friendly and it could reflect negatively. I won't go back again or recommend this place to anyone.

"after 23 nights in BB, guest house , self catering, it's the first "Bemol"
Difficult to find the accommodation small panel(sign) 30x30 hidden in the greenery; the 3 together passage was the voucher. Their attention was on 3 German shepherds at their home. They enter, take what they want and take out again (pairs of shoes) do not drop you on the sofa, he(it) is completely broken up. And, at the time of leaving, do not look for the owner, she did not wait for you, and untangle you with the staff to pay.

Thanks for the message.
To be honest I’m not able to decipher much from the feedback he left.
However, from what I can decipher:
1) The sign is not 30 x 30. It is an illuminated sign approx.. 90cm x 90cm. It is not hidden by trees. We are far more visible that other accommodation establishments in the town.
2) We do have three German Shepherd dogs (our security). They can enter the cottages if they are invited in and I doubt that they take things out.
I don’t understand the rest of the comments, but if you look at the reviews on your website, they have been very favorable. Perhaps this was the end of their vacation and they were upset to be leaving? I don’t know.

"Good spacious accommodation"

(United Kingdom) goodall | 4 April 2015

"The cottages are well located within walking distance of the town. Having two rooms made our cottage feel roomy and the pool although a bit old was a welcome bonus.We were pleased when WIFI was made available."

My only gripe would be that we couldnt have a cup of coffee in the morning as it was hard in the canister and when we went to warm up the crossants we had bourght with us we found a dish of mouldy rice in the microwave. We did inform the lady and she apologised which goes a long way.
Thank you for a lovely stay and the complimentary wine.

"Spacious well equipped apartment on a small vineyard very near the lovely town of Franschhoek. Unfortunately we did feel somewhat intimidated by the 3 large Alsatian guard dogs even though we were assured by the owner they were harmless."
