Review by Carol Pearson (Port Elizabeth)


We were warmly welcomed by owners Charles and Anna-Marie and immediately invited to late afternoon drinks with them ala Buckingham Palace style. This is a daily activity which we looked so forward to the whole day! It is during this lovely time spent with the owners that you realize that De Kuilen is their passion and lifeís work and if you are lucky enough to stay here and meet them, you will experience a touch of old fashioned farm-style life and living at its best.

Charles and Anne-Marie are passionate owners of De Kuilen Guest House and are dedicated to their personal service and their guests. Fresh baked cookies in the unit on arrival, champagne in the fridge and fresh roses from Anne- Marieís rose garden immediately makes you feel like youíve arrived home on the family farm at holiday time. What else could anyone wish for after a long 10 Hour Drive?

Breakfasts were awesome and what makes them special is the homely touch put into each and very meal by the owners. Real linen, silver cutlery, coffee pots and homemade bread and all things heirloom are the order of the day at De Kuilen. Charles and his very happy dog walk around the garden early morning before breakfast picking fresh fruit for the breakfast table. Spoilt and pampered is all we felt throughout our stay and we felt so sad to leave this beautiful place and itís wonderful owners Charles and Anna-Marie.

A well kept secret behind those high entrance gates. A lovely fresh atmosphere , very clean, friendly staff, secure and peaceful. We will only stay here when in the area again.

Do yourself a favour and spend some time here, whether for business or pleasure.
We had an amazing 4 night stay. Incredible hosts, amazing breakfasts and lovely family units which are perfect for short or long-term stays.

Anne and Charles were charming hosts. they made me feel very welcome. The breakfast was so good my family joined me one day to experience it. It is a lovely peaceful setting in the middle of the busy Johannesburg business center. I enjoyed my stay and hope to visit them again.
Thank you Anne and Charles for looking after me so well.

Review by Sandra (RSA)

Wow, this is the second time that i have stayed here, and i would recommend it to all.
it is very rare that you find a home away from home, and in the busy, busy city, you are surround by beautiful, trees, flowers and birds, you don't even feel like you are in the city, you feel safe.
we made use of the spa facility and it was the most wonderful experience- something to add to your to do list girls...
The meals are wonderful, freshly made and large portions, we particularly loved the Chocolate cake, seafood salad made with fresh home made paste, - ooh la la. - we will be back.
Thank you Anne-Marie and Charles, for a wonderful experience all round..

Review by PRUDENT Fabienne (PARIS - FRANCE)

Dear Annie,
As promised, I am sending you these few lines to tell you how I was happy to spend four nights in De Kuilen Country House last November. My only regret is that I did not have enough time to enjoy your company and the premises in daytime due to a heavy business schedule. You have made my stay a memorable one, starting with the welcome drink (South African champaigne) that we enjoyed in your beautiful garden. The atmosphere of your guest house is very special. I somewhat felt at home due to the typically British (my feeling) ambience. I also appreciated the quality and quantity of breakfast and dinner food. Sharing your company during the meals contributed to my feeling at home. Next time, hopefully next March, Charles and I will go on with French conversation! The only observation I' like to make is that the painting of the room I stayed needs to be refreshed and the bathroom refurbished. Otherwise, I warmly recommend your guest house for all visitors coming to Johannesburg, who want to enjoy a beautiful and very quiet environment. I am looking forward to my next visit in March 2010. My warmest regards to you and Charles. Fabienne PRUDENT
