Guestbook comments from the owner

This lovely friendly cottage was the perfect resting place for a long Easter weekend in Franschhoek. Very good value,clean, Chris was a communicative and very flexible host.He let us check in and check out late to fit with our travel and wine tasting plans.Very straightforward no fuss all very easy. Walkable to town about 10 minutes to the centre and just a few minutes to nearby Pick n Pay and cafes. We would definitely recommend Chris's cottage and look forward to visiting again.
