There is no place like this--and no finer hosts. Heidi and Bertie made it amazing from start to finish. We had been eating in restaurants for 2 weeks so home-cooked food from their chickens and neighbors and bee hives-- and veggies we got to pick straight from their garden were all delightful. The basket of local eggs, honey, bread, jam, bacon, fruit--- was beautiful. Their pride in the land and the animals and the lodges was contagious. This was exactly what we wanted--a place with a truly African feel, cozy fireplace, lots of land--a place where we could walk out our door and see wild zebra and ostriches and varieties of antelope grazing with beef and horses. We couldn't ride the horses because the wind was wild. Don't let this put you off. It added to the wonder and left us without a doubt that we had found the real deal. It was our mistake to spend too little time. Thanks, Heidi and Bertie!

The large house in which we stayed was beautifully finished and appointed with fine furniture and appliances. It truly had a manor house feel to it.The staff were very obliging and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for Heidi and her team. The farm is tranquil and we were treated daily to the buck crossing the farm in the morning and late afternoon.

This location ist so beautiful and peaceful. We stayed für 3 Nights in Protea Suite with freestanding bathtube. What can I say? The rooms are clean and luxurios, breakfast is delicious (with organic honey from the farm). Sitting on the guesthouse's veranda overlooking the pool at sunset is a great harmonic experience. Its so amazing to relax at the pool or to ride with the farm horses guided by Heidi through the Fynbos and watch wild animals. One day we drove by car to Pearly Beach not far away from the guesthouse. Also CapeTown is only 2 h away from Doornbosch Guesthouse. We look forward to come back as soon as possible!
