The most wonderfully relaxing guesthouse in all of the Cape. The location is amazing. The rooms are soooooo comfortable. The food is excellent. Abbi and her team offer the best service I have ever expeienced. This was recommended to me. I have stayed there on my last two visits to the Cape. Now it is my opportunity recommend it..... simply a fabulous experience....... and their Dunstone wine is great!

We had the most wonderful and romantic stay ever in Bovlei Valley Retreat. We felt as comfortable and luxurious as one can imagine. The family is very hearty and still descrete. Our engagment anniversary was celebrated with a wonderful and romantic dinner at the fire place all by ourselves. Abby herself cooked for us. We were relly great to have had the chance to stay at Bovlei Valley Retreat because we felt really retreated! Thank you so much, we love to think back of this stay!

Situated in the most beautful valley, down a dirt road. The mountain views are breathtaking, the service so friendly, the rooms of a very high standard and lots of added extras - Lavender punch on arrival followed by tea and homemade scones, and wine tasting and nibbles in the evening - all of which was complimentary. We had dinner 3 courses for only R165 - it was excellent, fillet steak that melted in the mouth. We slept so well, no traffic noise just a faint call of a owl - I really recommend this place
