              Like your own home!It's just like your own home bedroom… except that Mars Bars are left on your pillows and there is a little bottle of wine and homemade biscuits left on the dresser! The beds are definitely worth a mention - think perhaps the most comfortable bed i've had in my whole two week stay. Friendly owners and a lovely breakfast spread available. This is in a very quiet neighbourhood - great for sleep but not great for getting into town if you do not have your own transport. The walk of 4 km is mostly along a busy road (which you wouldn't want to walk on during the day let alone the evening) - taxis are also very scarce and therefore prices high - so if you go out for dinner stick to the bottle of water rather than the bottle of grape!

              Ausgezeichnetes, schönes Guesthouse in toller LageDie Gastgeberin Penelope ist ausgesprochen freundlich und hieß uns in Ihrem sehr sauberen und gemütlich eingerichteten Guesthouse willkommen. Sie stand uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite und gab uns einige Tipps für Restaurants und Ausflüge/Unternehmungen in Stellenbosch. Das Frühstück ist sehr liebevoll angerichtet und lässt keine Wünsche offen. Bei unserem nächsten Besuch in Stellenbosch schauen wir gerne wieder vorbei!

              Die schönste Unterkunft unserer RundreiseWir waren sofort begeistert,als wir das Haus und das Zimmer gesehen haben. Alles mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet und hergerichtet. Besonders haben wir uns über die Nespressomaschine mit Keksen und Obst auf dem Zimmer gefreut. Es hat einfach alles gepasst. Super sauber, flauschige Handtücher, tolle Betten usw. Penelope und ihr Mann sind äußerst nette und herzliche Menschen und geben tolle Tipps für Stellenbosch und Umgebung. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder hierher, wenn wir in Stellenbosch sind. Vielen lieben Dank an Penelope's Guesthouse.
