The first thing I want to say is thank you to Mara and Anneline for being such amazing hosts and women. I booked for my boyfriend’s birthday, and everything was PERFECT. The place is BEAUTIFUL, and we felt special with every detail they arranged for us. From the breakfast, the cake, the recommendations on where to eat, where to go—everything was spot on. They went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. Every little touch showed how much they cared about making our experience special. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, making it a perfect getaway. We definitely recommend it if you want to enjoy your vacation and feel special. ❤️ Sofia Italy

My stay was amazing. The staff were brilliant. The rooms in the house are awesome, so well decorated, sheets nice, every detail. Breakfast yummy. Highlight was having a monkey join us grabbing a banana. Well done Anneline and Mara DB


The ladies are so helpful and friendly, giving advice on where to eat and personal safety in the area. Everything was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was great Steve Bucks England 


Mara and Anneline were very welcoming and gave us some good tips on exploring the area and eating out Flackwell United Kingdom


Not only was the accommodation clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed but we were blown away by the friendliness and helpfulness of Mara and Anneline who together run the guest house. Our stay coincided with some difficult personal decisions and the help and support offered by the mother/daughter team was way beyond our expectations Cape Town Central South Africa


This was our second visit. Greeted like old friends by Anneline and Mara. Breakfast is more than ample and sets you up for the day ahead.
Overall, nothing is too much trouble for Anneline, and Mara and they are extremely helpful in suggesting local restaurants and will even make a booking. CHSAlnwick Newcastle United Kingdom


I must say from the time of booking and right through our stay we were very well looked after by Anneline and her mother Mara, they were the perfect hosts, and nothing was any trouble. Thank you for a great stay and we look forward to our return. David & Karen and family Allewtor Weymouth United Kingdom


Mara and Anneline, are extremely friendly and helpful Martin R Durham United Kingdom


Upon our arrival we were greeted by two very friendly ladies. We were shown to our room and given a tour of the property. We had lunch at a Restaurant recommended by our hosts which was excellent. They also recommended activities and a wine tour was quickly organised for us for the next morning. All our bookings were made by the ladies. Breakfast was superb with a big buffet table and the omelettes were to die for. Although the guest houses were fully booked, and the dining room packed Mara and Anneline had time to talk to all their guests and made them feel welcome and that while they prepared the hot breakfasts. We cannot thank them enough they made us feel like royals. Your hospitality was overwhelming Betty D Davis, California


Very friendly, informed and engaged management. Good breakfast, with all basic choices covered.

The treat of the ladies Mara an Anneline is fantastic, and they make you feel like home. Jose_Bustamante Amsterdam


Mara and Anneline who run the place are very, very friendly and they help with all the excursions you want. They even called us to come a day earlier for the whales and sharks because of the weather. Great service!! Ferlib Groningen, The Netherlands


Mara and Anneline are excellent hosts, making us feel very welcome and value guests. Breakfast was scrumptious! Vivdev Hitchin, United Kingdom


Thank you very much Mara and Anneline for your hospitality and generosity Maria D


The welcome by Mara and Anneline was warm and friendly, and we were immediately advised about the best way to see the whales and booked on a trip for the following morning. The room was immaculate and very comfortable, and the pool area and all public areas were equally as well kept and stylish. Annabriony1 Cambridge, United Kingdom


We stayed 3 nights and it was really perfect, breakfast ... unbelievable ... and the landlords Mara and Anneline was more than friendly and charming.

Last but not least: the friendly hug on departure: shivers! PeterL Hilversum NL


Anybody who is going to open a B&B should stay here to learn how it should be done. Anneline and Mara are awesome and run a spotless and beautiful operation. They treated me like royalty. What a pleasure it was to stay there Russell A USA

What a wonderful experience - from check-in to when we left, you made us feel like long-lost friends. The attention to detail, high standards and all the extra touches made by Mara and Anneline to the room. The breakfast made this an exceptional stay denisefuller2018 Port Elizabeth


We were warmly welcomed by Anneline and Mara like family. The rooms were well appointed, clean, and fresh. After a comfortable sleep, we were treated to a well prepared and full breakfast with eggs to order. I have stayed here on business previously. It is a pleasure to give this guest house the highest accolades BHA S Cape Town

Mara and Anneline were amazing, friendly hosts. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed ScrizzleMassachusetts


I went there on business, and stayed for five days, what an amazing experience. Mara and Anneline running the place make you feel so at home, almost part of the family. Every effort is made to make your stay as pleasant as possible Jean Pretoria, South Africa

Mara and Anneline were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble Peter Jwrote Lechlade, United Kingdom


We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at this clean and comfortable B&B with stunning views. This was only topped by the exceptional hospitality of Mara and Anneline who were not only warm and friendly without being intrusive but also served a great breakfast FHawksworth


We had the breakfast on our last morning and the omelette prepared by Mara was one of the best we have had. Very nice breakfast. Very pleasant stay with all the info for surrounding areas. Thank you! trevorb424


Nothing but amazing things to say! We were greeted at the gate by Anneline and parked in the secure parking area (free!). After unloading the car, we were shown the room which was very nice; when we were shown the room, I would have been quite content, however, Anneline offered us a free upgrade since no one was staying in the 2-bedroom suite during our stay (YES!!) The service is impeccable, from the daily room cleaning to a delicious customizable continental breakfast, they have got their hospitality down to a fine art. Mara and Anneline are not only two of the sweetest mother-daughter property managers I've ever met, but also the most helpful- they will suggest and arrange dinner bookings and coordinate activities should you so desire. We had been wrongly advised by the concierge in Cape Town that our safari was only about an hour and a half from Hermanus-- when we realized it was actually more like 3 hours away, Mara quickly took control of the situation and started making calls to find any animal-related activities we could do on such short notice and the last day of our visit to South Africa. After a few calls, she was able to arrange a cheetah preserve and winery tour combo outing. We would have been so disappointed if we would have had to spend our last day in this amazing country without ever getting to see any animals, so she did us a HUUUUUGE favor by taking care of us! Thank you again Mara and Anneline Sarah L Texas
