HC SVNT DRACONES - Here be Dragons.

Nestled between 8 hectar of mature Cabernet Sauvignon vines and guarded by the majestic Simonsberg lies a farmhouse lovingly restored to give you every creature comfort imaginable. The only noise that could disturb the sound of silence is an acorn clattering on the roof or a rooster crowing in the distance.
24 Hour security gives you complete peace of mind and easy access to the property.

The space

The wrap around "stoep" makes for easy and relaxed summertime living. The garden is planted with a riot of old fashioned plants and borehole water ensures that it is always looking its best.
Bath time has the best view in the entire Banhoek Vallei, so be sure to linger.
You can cook up a storm in the kitchen and I promise you anything tastes better when eaten off my Granny's Dinner Service.
Pop out to Tokara Delicatessen for a brunch or Delaire Graff Estate for a light lunch under their magnificent oak trees.

Guest access

The entire home is at your disposal. It is ideal for 4 guests plus a young adult - although the property is ideal for huge parties and celebrations our house rules state that you may only invite 8 guests to share the amenities at any stage.
No additional guests allowed to sleep over please.
Should you wish to add another 2 people to your booking please view and enquire after the Drakenzicht Homestead Studio.

Interaction with guests

I live in Gordonsbay about 40 kilometer from the farm. I will be able to assist with any dire emergency.

Drakenzicht Jonkmanshuis is set in a magnificent garden with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards. The farmhouse is elegant yet still cosy and comfortable and needless to say, immaculately clean. It is superbly appointed and has everything you could possibly want or need. The beds were incredibly comfortable. With its wrap around veranda, sparkling pool and lovely lawns, the house lends itself to rest and relaxation and it is a hard place to leave. As it is located between Stellenbosch and Franschoek , it is also an ideal base from which to explore the Winelands. Communication with Sirwinnie was seamless and she was always accessible to answer questions. We also really appreciated all of the extras such as flowers, fresh fruit and sweets! We all loved our stay and would love to return.
