by Michelle Vickers on Zarose | Stellenbosch

Very warm welcome from Ilzebet, who went out of her way to accommodate us following a change to our reservation. The guesthouse is stunning and looked after by a great team. I asked for an iron and an ironing board and instead handed over my clothes and they were all ironed within an hour! The gardens are beautifully maintained, as is the pool, the chairs and loungers. Breakfast was outstanding and we were only sorry we couldn't stay longer.
