Garden Villa is nestled in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands. Set amongst lush gardens, towering oak trees and rolling vineyards, the historic Herbert Baker style Manor House invites you to reminisce and be reminded of life’s simple pleasures…where time stands still and life is celebrated surrounded by space, art, and the grandeur of a long forgotten era.
Manor house is surrounded by 500 rose bushes, lavender fields and the tranquillity of rolling lawns extending to
the dam with an eco-pool…feel what it’s like to swim in nature again.
Enjoy a chilled glass of wine on the pizza deck, while your kids explore their newfound freedom. There’s a secret hideaway with tree walks, a zipline across the dam for the more
adventurous, an oversized wigwam/Teepee tent to fuel their imagination.

Elegance, tranquility and a peaceful laid back atmosphere culminate to make this Villa the ultimate venue for an intimate stay or exclusive celebration.
Beautifully maintained gardens under majestic oak and pine trees, sweeping verandas, balustrade terracing, fountains and picturesque lake vistas are all part of Garden Villa. The grounds are extensive and perfect for children who will especially enjoy the jungle gym that begs to be explored with the resident jack russel and great dane.
Cuddle up with a book in the serenity of the Manor House or relax in the Summer Room on deep, comfortable sofas, while the children enjoy the cool of the refreshing pool. For the more energetic, discover the unique experience of zip‐lining from aged oak trees across a wide expanse of water or fishing from the jetty. Enjoy a glass of wine on the floating deck as the sun sets and glows on the distant Helderberg Mountains, or retreat to the deck hidden in the trees and dine under the stars.
