Downstairs is designed for easy open plan living. The main guest bedroom has an en-suite bathroom (wrought iron four poster bed) and a further two guest suites (the second bedroom has a four poster bed and there are bunk beds in the third bedroom for the kids) with inter leading bathroom. There is a large open plan country kitchen, scullery and dining area. The lounge has a log burning fireplace and French doors onto the covered patio.

The well kept English country garden has a kitchen garden to the side and the lawns roll down to the rivers edge. There are wonderful walks along the river. The kitchen garden supplies abundant vegetables, herbs, tomatoes and flowers for home consumption please use what you need.
DStv is available - please bring your own decoder and sim card to activate DStv. You will need to call DStv to enable this on arrival. There is a Bose iPod docking station with remote to play your music - so please dont forget your iPods.
The house is serviced once a week. Should you require our housekeeper to come more often please let us know. This weekly servicing includes making of beds, a linen change, cleaning of the bathrooms, general cleaning and sweeping or mopping the floors if required and is included in the rates so will not result in additional charges.
Attractions and Activities
You are right on the Klein River for kayaking, boating or walks, mountain views, amazing bird trails and watching in the reserve, 15km's from whale watching in whale season, located mid-point between Hermanus and Gansbaai. Close to the Walker Bay 4x4 trail and protected beaches.
There is a fantastic market every Saturday morning in Stanford - we encourage you to get there just before 10am - things sell out quickly! I can highly recommend the lemon curd cup cakes and pies!
Guests are welcome to use the bikes in the garage, please speak to Debbie should you wish to use them.

We request that guests do not smoke inside the property. Please ensure that the alarm is activated each time you leave the property. We have a resident porcupine in the garden who tends to rummage through the bin bags if they are not placed in the outside bins provided. It can get rather messy but he is a sight to behold and the kids love looking out for him.
