Our home is in a quiet neighbourhood on the foothills of Stellenbosch Mountain - perfect for outdoor enthusiasts! Come enjoy trail running, hiking or biking from your doorstep in the nearby forest and vinyards! The town centre with all its fine restaurants and quirky art galleries is a 7 - 10 minute drive away, and some of the best wine farms are very close by. Stellenbosch has so much to offer and we would love to show our guests why it is our favourite place on the planet!

The space

Your spacious room has its own separate entrance and en suite bathroom. There is a double bed, and a double air mattress is available for up to two additional persons / children at no extra cost.

Things you will love about your stay:
- Excellent free WiFi is included!
- Your room has air conditioning for those hot Stellenbosch summer days.
- A complementary breakfast consisting of delicious homemade South African rusks, assorted cereals, milk, coffee and tea is included (on a self serve basis). Please enquire about additional meal options!
- A washing machine and dryer is available.

Although your room does not have a full kitchen, it is equipped with everything you need to prepare a quick bite: a kettle, bar fridge and microwave. Guests may also share our kitchen in the main house when we are home or upon arrangement.

Guest access

Guests have private access to their room via a porch that is shared with the main house.

It was such a great stay. Everything what you need is available. Melissa took us to an typical southafrican bbq (braai) - it was so good ;) but if you want to have time by your own is also possible. The room was big an everything was clean. Highly recommended.

Melissa and Ralf are unbelievably kind, friendly and accommodating. Their cottage is neat, spacious and well appointed with everything one could need. The hosts put in extra effort to ensure your stay is special. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

Interaction with guests

We sometimes enjoy sharing a meal or some good wine with guests, but won't bother you if you prefer to do your own thing :)

About Melissa

... outdoor enthusiast... maths nerd... dog lover... statistician... gourmet cook... explorer... artisan baker... engineer... pianist... adventure junkie... code monkey... lifelong student...

Current Mission
In a year or so my husband and I want to embark on an epic journey, backpack everywhere and climb as many mountains as we can. In the meantime we are exploring all that South Africa has to offer (inbetween our day jobs, which involve coding / maths / stats - all the geeky stuff).

Live the dream. You only get to live once, and you don't know how much time you have left. Got a dream? Make it happen.

What I Can Share with Guests and Hosts
I enjoy cooking and baking and would love to share a homemade South African meal with guests and hosts!
I'm really into hiking and can share some interesting stories :)
