Guestbook comments from the owner

We have now visited and stayed at Sala Kahli Lodge 3 times in the past 3 years and have booked for the next 2 years ahead. It is simply a wonderful place to stay - we enjoy the serenity, the closenest to the village and the wonderful views. The lodge is furnished to the highest standard.

We stayed about 3 weeks and had a great time. Robert is as owner very responsive which is really an added value. Also the housekeepster was a joy. The property itself is lovely! Everything you need is present. We can recommend this property to anyone.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed here at the end of October 2008. The property is amazing, having been built with such attention to detail and with great thought. The rooms are all extremely spacious and the outside dining area offers a welcome place to sit, enjoy the views and sip the local wine. The maid prepared our beds, cleaned, tidied and was more than happy to go the extra mile in ensuring that our stay was as comfortable as possible.

If you are staying in the Franschooek area, this is a must! It is a great location surrounmded by wonderful scenery and vineyards.

We can't wait to return to SA or to stay here again.
