About Acara Guest Cottages

Acara is situated in the middle of the Stellenbosch Winelands and close to hundreds of wineries, beautiful beaches, and good food and wine. The four guest cottages/units are beautifully appointed, and fully equipped with self catering facilities. Perfect to relax and enjoy the winelands. The landscaped gardens have beautiful views of the Helderberg Mountains and the surroundings are quiet, relaxing and full of wildlife - birds, mongooses, owls, otters


There are 4 options for guests staying at Acara: Willow Tree Cottage, Lavender Cottage, and Jacaranda suite and the Balcony Room. All have double doors leading to their own terrace or deck area.
