Walter & Colleen are fabulous hosts who made us feel so at home. They were happy for us to drop off bags in the morning before being picked up for our wine tour. We were able to nap comfortably when we got back. We were offered tea & were able to chat to the two other guests in the spacious living room. Stellenbosch central was only 10mins walk away where we grabbed a bite later. Breakfast was absolutely fantastic & this home is completely worth the price. Thank you so much & we'll be back!

We had a wonderful night stay. Walter and Colleen were incredibly welcoming, let us check in early and put us at ease with our 5 month old baby. The bedroom was very comfortable and the breakfast the next morning was the best I've had so far at an air b&b. Finally the location is perfect for anyone wanting to stay in the heart of Stellenbosch. I can honestly say I Colleen and Walter are the most warm and friendly air b&b hosts. Don't hesitate, just book!

Lovely old house in Stellenbosch, the room is good and spacious. The garden is a lovely place to have breakfast which was a good and varied spread! Walter & Colleen were so very welcoming and friendly, going above and beyond making our stay the best it could be. We would certainly return here when/if we return to Stellenbosch!

Walter and Colleens home in Stellenbosch is an ideal location when exploring the neighbourhood and nearby wine regions. They have mastered the almost lost art of hosting and we wanted for nothing. They have an endless knowledge of the area and of countless other things. They were flexible with our arrival kindly offered us wine, a 'doppie', or tea to have by the wood fire and enjoy the library before retiring to our beautiful warm room. On waking up we were treated to a breakfast like no other that one would struggle to find at the finest wine farms farm restaurant. Walter and Colleens home in Stellenbosch is our home away from home as I am sure it will be for many others and we are looking forward to our next visit.
