The space

Lavenders Blue is a well loved holiday home set in a peaceful, spacious garden in a quiet part of the Village. It has been well equipped to make it a real 'home from home'. Two bedrooms accommodate 5 guests in a queen bed downstairs and 3 singles in the loft room upstairs. Two bathrooms with a bath downstairs and shower upstairs. A washer and dryer are available for the guests' convenience and the kitchen is equipped with a large gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. The lounge has an open fireplace and heaters and electric blankets are provided for chilly winter nights. The large covered patio has a braai and outdoor tables and chairs for alfresco dining. A TV is provided and DSTV and wi-fi are available by prior arrangement.

Guest access

The guests will have access to the entire house and garden during their stay. The owners have personal cupboards that are locked, but there is adequate storage space for guests' belongings in wardrobes and drawers.

Interaction with guests

Guests will be met by the local manager, who will show them around the house, and be on hand to attend to any queries, restaurant suggestions or problems during their stay.

The neighbourhood

Stanford village is a gentle rural place with space for children to ride their bikes, or float paper boats in the lei-water sloots. Embrace the country life and join the locals walking to the shops and restaurants, along the river and the wandelpad. Take a hike through the vineyards, or cycle along the country lanes. Relax on the hammock with a good book, or watch the sun go down over the mountains.

Getting around

Transfers can be arranged from Cape Town, but it is preferable to have the flexibility of your own car to explore the surrounding area, country restaurants and wine estates. Stanford is an hour and 45 minutes away from the international airport in Cape Town. Secure parking is provided on the property.

Lavenders Blue was lovely. Set in a residential area on a relatively small plot, but quiet and private. All the Stanford restaurants and shops were in easy walking distance, as was the Stanford Wandelpad - a river walk round the outskirts of the village. Patti was friendly and generous with information. We had made a mistake with our booking which was sorted out with no fuss or stress. A lovely homely place to relax and unwind.
